New Section of the Hedonist International Drooled over Pope's Visit to Berlin
„We don't want to think, we want you to lead us!“
This is the theme of the „Legion of Surrender“, a section of the hedonist international unbeknown to date, as they came together to give Benedikt XVI. the most devoted welcome on his visit to Berlin. They gathered at the metro station “Olympiastadion”, deeply convinced that the guardian of the holy truth and manful defender of the real catholic virtues deserves a frenetic salutation by his true disciples, who assured him of their total surrender under the papal infallibility.
In the end, they aggrievedly couldn't greet the Holy Father personally, but they could celebrate their beliefs with all the other Catholics who had come to see the pope. The months of preparation proved to be worth it: The enthusiasm with which these young Catholics celebrated their devotedness impressed many believers from all over the world. They were caught by the dense atmosphere of spirituality and joined in the Legion's devotions to the Holy Father. Asked for his opinion on the Legion of Surrender, a member of the famous Pius Brotherhood sent his greetings and assured them of his sympathy.
The burning speeches and ecstatic dances proved to be commanding even to the Ladies and Gentlemen of our sweet and serving federal police. They secretly tapped their feet with the music and seemed to be quite sad when the dedicative legionnaires finally decided to leave the site. Some other demonstrators who showed up at the metro station as well weren't that lucky. They were banned and sent away quickly although they expressed their opinions as peacefully as the Legion of surrender did.
“We hope that our decent presence at the Olympic Stadium had some impact on the young Catholics passing by and that we could convince some of them to follow us in our total surrender to the pope's words”, said legionnaire Eusebia referring to this outstanding day of celebration. For the writers of this little communication, there only one drop of bitterness: They lost some precious seconds of the godly spree that followed the devotions of the day.
