What Does The Catholic Church Say About Flies?


From Catholictradition.org:

FLY: The fly has long been considered a bearer of evil or pestilence. In Catholic symbolism the fly is a symbol of sin. It sometimes appears in pictures of the Virgin and Child to convey the idea of sin and redemption. The fly as a bringer of disease was sometimes shown with the goldfinch, a ‘saviour-bird’ against the disease.”

Sounds right to me. Have any of you seen another US President that so attracted flies?

    Proof positive that flies have a hierarchy within their social order. No self respecting fly would ever debase itself by landing on such filth.Poor fly.

    I remember seeing a lot of flies hanging around my dogs shit when I had to go out to the backyard for poop-scooping duty. I called them “Shit Flies.” I really don’t blame these flies that want to hang aroung Obama. They are flies! They crave shit!
