Mission Impossible

A highly unorthodox portrayal of cruciformity.

Your mission J, if you decide to accept it, is as follows:

1) Infiltrate unobtrusively. If you are perchance discovered by some astrology/celebrity nuts, still proceed with your mission. Follow your cover agents’ every word (ie Mum and Dad).

2) Stay undercover for ~30 years. Form a cadre of agents to help you from then on.

3) Spread the “Mission Statement” by all rhetorical means for three years to all-comers. Teach your agents how to multiply your work.

4) Prove your provenance by accepting unjust execution, like a lamb, then return from death.

5) Reunite with your agents, confirm them in their mission and then exfiltrate astoundingly so they never forget.

This message will not self-destruct in five minutes, or ever, in fact. Beware of counterfeits!

    Mission Impossible is an apt allusion. It recalls to mind the Ship of Fools:

    …a film released in1965 – the year before the MI television series began – wherein Oskar Werner (in real life a Catholic given conscientious objector status in Nazi Germany and then assigned to peeling potatoes) plays a disillusioned ship’s doctor who tells us (at the 1:05 mark) whilst sipping a glass of Courvoisier, that “our mission in life is to avoid being fools…” which belief (again in real life) led Werner away from the Church into the cold dead arms of Humanism.

    “2) Stay undercover for ~30 years. Form a cadre of agents to help you from then on.”

    Nice analogy, Burro, but J didn’t stay undercover for 30 years. He was having learned discussions publicly in the temple at 12. (Or so I read. Yes, read!) Then he quit doing that and vanished for 18 years.
    Nobody knows – or apparently, cares – why.

    JH, is there any truth in this cartoon?

    A bit off topic, but not too much – and I think CP&S readers will appreciate the last two pieces here.
    (My wife doesn’t know I’ve done this.)

    The trailer for the next Mission: Impossible movie, to be oddly off-topic, seems quite interesting — as it seems to point to the next one being a kind of fusion between the first and the latest ; interesting, as despite being poles apart, they are the best 2 films of the series so far.
