Papal mass in Phoenix Park likely to be a damp squib

Papal mass in Phoenix Park likely to be a damp squib
Everybody surely knows by now that Jose Maria Bergoglio is coming to Dublin the weekend to repeat the "Yung people of Irelann I luff yuu" schtick of 1979.

The rcc gave out 500,000 tickets for the mass on Sunday in order to boost numbers for the mass.

But from anecdotes I'm both getting and hearing this is not working. First a number of people (not just atheists) booked tickets to not go (one lad got 650), second with the logistical nightmare (bus park is 6.5km from the Park) more people are falling out. And finally from speaking with a work colleague who's organising her parish's trip there are multiple copies of tickets going to each participant. The parish have c25 going, they got 75 tickets and most of those going also booked their own tickets. So if this is replicated across the country the crowd will be very sparse, barely getting out of five figures.

The rcc gave out 500,000 tickets for the mass on Sunday in order to boost numbers for the mass.

But from anecdotes I'm both getting and hearing this is not working.  First a number of people (not just atheists) booked tickets to not go (one lad got 650), second with the logistical nightmare (bus park is 6.5km from the Park) more people are falling out.  And finally from speaking with a work colleague who's organising her parish's trip there are multiple copies of tickets going to each participant.  The parish have c25 going, they got 75 tickets and most of those going also booked their own tickets.  So if this is replicated across the country the crowd will be very sparse, barely getting out of five figures.

It's just an obvious ruse; if anyone shows-up without a ticket, they'll be admitted, of course.  It's more like a free coupon than a ticket, a simple marketing ploy.
And without delay Peter went quickly out of the synagogue (assembly) and went unto the house of Marcellus, where Simon lodged: and much people followed him...And Peter turned unto the people that followed him and said: Ye shall now see a great and marvellous wonder. And Peter seeing a great dog bound with a strong chain, went to him and loosed him, and when he was loosed the dog received a man's voice and said unto Peter: What dost thou bid me to do, thou servant of the unspeakable and living God? Peter said unto him: Go in and say unto Simon in the midst of his company: Peter saith unto thee, Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And immediately the dog ran and entered in, and rushed into the midst of them that were with Simon, and lifted up his forefeet and in a loud voice said: Thou Simon, Peter the servant of Christ who standeth at the door saith unto thee: Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou most wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And when Simon heard it, and beheld the incredible sight, he lost the words wherewith he was deceiving them that stood by, and all of them were amazed. (The Acts of Peter, 9)

And his birth name was Jorge, not Jose.

That quote has a somewhat different connotation these days.

They can do nothing right. A lot are pissed off that for World Meeting of Families, same sex parent families are banned. A lot are pissed off that homeless families currently housed in hotels/B&Bs are being ejected to make room for papal tourists. Catherine Corless, the tireless researcher into the Tuam babies scandal has refused to meet Jonathan Price the pope. And on and on and on.

I believe that the whole lot of them are stuck in a past where they were venerated themselves.
