Police Threaten Fines for Woman Who Invited Lonely People to Christmas Dinner

Published

on

A British woman was threatened with fines by local police for putting up signs inviting lonely people to Christmas dinner, according to Fox. 

“Mo Fayose, 44, was shocked when she received an email from town hall chiefs accusing her of illegal fly-posting,” the report said. “She put up the notices around the neighborhood in Basford, Nottingham, inviting people to get in touch with her if they were on their own over the festive season.”

According to the report, Fayose has been opening her doors to the lonely for three years, and is up to over 100 guests annually. She raises the funds throughout the year. For this year’s festivities she raised over $3700.

“I was really shocked when I got the email telling me I was breaking the law. I just wanted to help people who were on their own at Christmas,” she reportedly said. “The posters are really important; it’s the way to get it to those who are not using social media.”

With British police busy taking knives off the streets after the government upped its assault on inanimate objects, one might think they’d be too busy to dole out fines for hanging flyers. But police states always have time to infringe upon the freedom of their residents.

Fayose blasted the local authorities:

“The email said, ‘We know what you are doing is good but it is classed as fly-posting’ which is a problem. Therefore I would ask you to take it down otherwise you would be fined. It’s just crazy, it broke me down. I put the posters all over Basford so everyone could see them. I put it online but not everyone is on social media especially older people who are sometimes the most lonely in our society.”

So much for the yuletide spirit.

Pope Francis Prays For Coronavirus Relief in Unprecedented Empty Vatican Audience

The Pope appeared alone.

Published

on

Pope Francis prayed that God would comfort Italy and the world in the midst of the raging Chinese coronavirus epidemic, appearing in an unprecedented Vatican audience in Saint Peter’s Square. Papal events at the Vatican are almost always filled with pilgrims and the faithful, but the ceremony overseen by the Pope was entirely empty on account of the strict quarantine imposed on Italy as the nation reels from an unmatched death count from the disease.

Imagery of the event revealed the striking emptiness of the Vatican square, the overcast and rainy weather adding to the solemn nature of the papal event.

May God’s blessing come down upon you as a consoling embrace,”  said the Pope at the event. “Lord, bless the world. Give health to our bodies and comfort our hearts.”

The Pope encouraged prayer from the faithful for those directly involved in the response to the historic health epidemic- healthcare workers, doctors, grocery employees, police and volunteers.

The Pope chose to deliver the traditional ‘Urbi et Orbi’ address at the event, a Vatican tradition that is usually reserved for Christmas and Easter. The prayer implied the likely cancellation of Vatican Easter proceedings, with the devastation caused by the coronavirus in Italy likely precluding any major gatherings within the coming months, at least. Reports indicate that the Pope will celebrate traditional Good Friday and Easter Sunday masses, but alone, in a manner similar to Friday’s papal appearance.

Catholic Sunday Masses have been entirely cancelled in Italy, a nearly entirely unprecedented development that speaks to the gravity of the situation in the disease-stricken country. The nation had its worst day in terms of casualties on Friday, with deaths rising to 9,134, with a total national count of almost 87,000.
