“Your wound, I know the cure,” he muttered in the Saracen tongue, which I had learned to mastery before the journey.

The Healer of Montgisard By: Aya Bassiouny We were told before we departed that a man’s life cannot be taken, unless he gives it away; that if we wish to guard our souls, we hold fast to the sword, for the soul that dives to battle takes it wing from the limbs. But on the ship to Ascalon there was already the scent of death. The ones we loved we kissed good-bye and rode the waves as if there was no coming back, our long green mantles wafting atop our shoulderblades. We were sailing eastward to our dog days and … Continue reading “Your wound, I know the cure,” he muttered in the Saracen tongue, which I had learned to mastery before the journey.

It will be fleeting and possibly light a quick soft kiss

Today’s card; what it’s not. This is a great example of what today’s card means. Here we have the inverted lovers. Usually one would suppose it means quarreling, the opposite of love, but no. It means love but not at … Continue reading It will be fleeting and possibly light a quick soft kiss

Do you think Jesus came to us as God, or to show us God’s humanity?

I’ve run the gamut on responses to this question.  Some, which I assume are Non-Christian favor Jesus’s humanity. Oddly Christians focus on his divinity, which I find misleading given the message is in how Jesus lived his life. Author: Eugenio Zorrilla.

Under threat: Venice’s need to rescue its future | DW Documentary

Built on small islands and mud banks, Venice is slowly sinking. More than ever before, the pearl of the Adriatic is under threat. Having recently been hit by its most severe floods and with a state of emergency declared, what is being done to combat this? Well over a thousand years ago the first wooden huts were built out on the middle of a lagoon off the coast of northern Italy. The archives tell us these were the homes of people fleeing barbarian invasions in the aftermath of the collapse of the Roman Empire. Later, with land in short supply, … Continue reading Under threat: Venice’s need to rescue its future | DW Documentary

the one most valuable piece of advice, “it is more painful to be a frustrated writer, than a bad writer.”

I went to an Irish Catholic School. It was called The Irish Institute. It was and is still run by the Legionaries of Christ. They have several schools in major Mexican Cities and are based in Dublin Ireland with an office in Rome. Most subjects were taught in English. Mexican History was taught in English but Civics in Spanish. Religious instruction in schools though illegal in Mexico was still taught in Spanish. It’d been clearly pointed out in civics class. We were breaking the law.  The priests and brothers had to wear suits. It is not allowed in Mexico for … Continue reading the one most valuable piece of advice, “it is more painful to be a frustrated writer, than a bad writer.”

It was perplexing to hear how my mother

I don’t think it’s one’s faith in as much as what one chooses to believe in to be of concern. I see the issue as how one practices The Faith. My mother was Protestant Free Methodist, and my father Roman Catholic. It was perplexing to hear how my mother grew up believing going to the movies and wearing makeup was a sin.
