Can’t sleep, waking up at 11 will do that… If you’re in the same boat tonight shoot me a message and I’ll return the favor :)
O Death, where is your sting? O Hell, where is your victory? Christ is risen, and you are overthrown. Christ is risen, and the demons are fallen. Christ is risen, and the angels rejoice. Christ is risen, and life reigns. Christ is risen, and not one dead remains in the grave. For Christ, being risen from the dead, is become the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep.
St. John Chrysostom
St. John Chrysostom is one of my favorites.
Truly he is risen!
As a culture, we have to be taught the language of descent. That is the great language of religion. It teaches us to enter willingly, trustingly into the dark periods of life. These dark periods are good teachers.
Religious energy is in the dark energy, seldom in the answers. Answers are the way out, but that is not what we’re here for. When we look at the questions, we look for the opening to transformation.
Fixing something doesn’t usually transform us. We try to change events in order to avoid changing ourselves. We must learn to stay with the pain of life, without answers, without conclusions, and some days without meaning. That is the perilous dark path of true prayer."
— Richard Rohr (via bananena)
So we had the bells that you usually ring at the Consecration out at the server spots. And we never have those bells typically because we don’t use them at this parish. I guess the idea was to ring them through the Gloria, but no one told me. So I rang em during the Consecration as the should be rung. Scared the pastor half to death when I did.
Smells and bells son!
He is Risen!
Easter fire was brilliant and I incensed the hell out of the Church. Happy Easter!
He is Risen!
FYI if there are any reports of giant fireballs in Racine, WI tonight that’s just our Easter Vigil fire at St. Rita’s
I joined Kiva two years ago and have been very happy with their service. I started with five $25 loans, and have since made many more loans just recycling that money with what has been paid back.
Consider joining Kiva and extending credit to small business and entrepreneurs in the developing world in microloans. If you match my $25 today with this link, an additional $25 will be matched to the loan by Kiva!
Thanks for considering!
What is the difference between Christ and Satan?
It is quite simple. Christ descended into hell; Satan fell into it. One of them wanted to go up and went down; the other wanted to go down and went up."
