If this expansion of the most heinous crimes against Catholic children by the John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army does not convince the 1.1 billion Catholics NOT to call John Paul II a saint -- then it is a doomed religion anticipating its own quick demise as predicted by the Third Secret of Fatima.

The Roman Catholic Church is no longer "Holy". All Catholic churches, sacristies, rectories are not «holy» but potential priestly pedophile places
900 Catholic sex abuse victims come forward

More than 900 victims of sexual abuse in the Roman Catholic Church in the Netherlands have so far reported their cases to the enquiry headed by former cabinet minister Wim Deetman.
Some perpetrators have also confessed, Mr Deetman told Dutch daily de Volkskrant, although he has not yet had contact with them. However, most of the abuses took place so long ago they will no longer be liable to prosecution. Mr Deetman called on other abusers to come forward to try to make up for the harm they have caused.
The Christian Democrat statesman, appointed by the Catholic Church in May to head the enquiry into the sex abuse scandal, says that not all the victims are interested in receiving financial compensation. “There are victims who only want to tell their story and have it investigated. There are many people who want help and guidance,” he said.
Two or three large meetings with victims are to be held in the coming months, Mr Deetman said, stressing that the enquiry would be listening to the victims, not merely providing information. The enquiry also plans to establish an alternative channel to provide support for victims that is independent of the church’s own institute to investigate the abuse, Hulp & Recht (Help & Justice). “Many victims have no confidence in Hulp & Recht,” he observed.
Mr Deetman said he was shocked that the extent of the abuse in the church should have remained hidden for so long, and to receive e-mails from victims in their sixties saying it was the first time they had told anyone about their experiences.

Launching a new product takes on a whole new dimension when you can create a launch event and then leave the entire atmosphere intact for days afterwards. The ways in which to use pop stores are multitudinous; have an anniversary or bar/bat mitzvah and invite your overseas or out of town guests to stay a week, throw a fundraising gala for the arts and have a running gallery show for a week afterwards –the possibilities are endless! Here's an article where you can find out more...

What is a Gobo and how can it make my event spectacular?
At DJS Events, we LOVE gobos. Many people don’t know what gobos are, or how they can amp up an event. Let us fill you in.
Gobos (or Go Betweens) were originally created for stage and films sets to control lighting and the shape of lighting. They serve the same purpose for events. A piece of material made of plastic or glass with patterned holes is placed in front of a light. This material only lets the desired shape through while blocking the rest of the light, which casts specific areas of shadow and light, creating the image that you want onto a ceiling or wall. The image can be of anything, be it a company logo, a person's name, or an image. Gobos can be simple with clean lines like a men's/women's restroom icon or layered and elaborate like a gothic stained glass window. Some high tech gobos can be animated!
Sound super technical? It’s not! Gobos make an awesome addition to your event. Here are some examples of Gobos that DJS Events have executed for our clients.

... to Brooke's Bloggy... you won't want to leave. Sigh. I am in love with the place. Hubby has already strolled down all the streets through Google Maps... stalked websites on the place (that play John Denver music).... and has checked plane routes... from Australia.
