† 2020

Throughout your entire life, people will die in front of you – some, physically; others, morally – and, with every single loss, a part of you also fades away, until, at the very end, after having already buried them all in some deep, dark corner of your traumatized psyche, and with the last glimmer of light that was still left within you being finally extinguished, you yourself will also, at long last, ultimately perish...

O, Happy Days !

There aren't any.

Sexual Jihad

1 Corinthians 7:1 It is good for a man not to touch a woman. 5 Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency. 7 For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that.

Ephesians 6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

Giving Up On Others For Lent

1 Samuel 15:10 Then came the word of the Lord unto Samuel, saying: 11 It repenteth me that I have set up Saul to be king: for he is turned back from following me, and hath not performed my commandments. And it grieved Samuel; and he cried unto the Lord all night. 16:1 And the Lord said unto Samuel: How long wilt thou mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel ?

Matthew 8:19 And a certain scribe came, and said unto him: Master, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest. 21 And another of his disciples said unto him: Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. 22 But Jesus said unto him: Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.

Luke 9:57 And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him: Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest. 59 And he said unto another: Follow me. But he said: Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. 60 Jesus said unto him: Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God. 61 And another also said: Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house. 62 And Jesus said unto him: No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

Old White Men

Daniel 7:9 The thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool.

Timing Is Everything

The astronomical significance behind the dates underlying the church calendar's main feasts is as follows:
  • The year's shortest and longest days are the two solstices, closely corresponding to the births of Jesus Christ and John the Baptist.

  • The days whose length lies precisely midway between the two solstices are the two equinoxes, closely corresponding to the conceptions of Jesus Christ and John the Baptist. They also happen to coincide with the days equally distanced from the two solstices.

  • The days whose length lies precisely midway between the two solstices and equinoxes closely correspond to the feasts of Saint Valentine in late winter, Saint George in late spring, the Assumption of Mary in late summer, and Saint Demetrius in late autumn. They do not, however, coincide with the days equally distanced from the two solstices and equinoxes, the latter closely corresponding to feasts of the Presentation and Transfiguration of Christ in late winter and summer, and that of the Holy Archangels Michael and Gabriel in late autumn.
