The Surp Pırgiç Church in Karaköy, #Istanbul is home to a unique ceremony that takes place once a year. The church was the first #Armenian Catholic church to be consecrated in the Ottoman Empire after the Armenian Catholic millet was recognised by Sultan Mahmud II in 1830.#Thread Image
When the church was first opened in 1834, Istanbul was suffering from a major plague outbreak. A painting of the Virgin Mary & Baby Jesus that was sent to the church as an inaugural gift from the #Vatican was paraded around the streets of Istanbul to ward off the plague. Image
Eventually, as the plague outbreak in the city died down, many attributed this to the miraculous powers of this painting in #SurpPırgiç. Sultan Mahmud II took note of this and gifted a diamond brooch to the church and its congregation. Image

Title: The Journey of life (2): Wonders of the cross

#EasterSunday
#Easter
#GloriousWorship
@dapojojohn

Recap:

Focus on the pain and not the gain
Take your life's mission very serious
For us Christians, the cross has more meaning than just the Christian faith. It's a summary of the life of Jesus, it depicts God's plan for man's redemption.

The cross also symbolizes sacrifice and exchange of God's righteousness with the sinful nature of human. 1Peter 2:24
2Corinthians 5:21

The wonders of the cross.
1. We have enjoyed liberation from Sin
Sin means to miss the mark, not to measure up to the demand.

Romans 1:22-24, 3:3-4
Thank God, through Christ, we can not miss the mark. Ephesians 2:9, Hebrews 6:4-6

Emily, elder to many, storyteller, truthteller, struggling for words w/ brain tumor, says:

"Dare to be golden. Dare to love without judgements, conditions or fear of being judged. Be gentle with each other and yourselves; and trust that you are where the heart is held. (more)🧵
"It can be a difficult and cold world
but these guiding principles have brought joy and warmth to me and those around me throughout my life.
This is the gift that we have been given. (more)🧵
"We must trust that the connection is whole and not broken and let the message come through us.

I hear a call, I trust the call of those who bring hard truths and welcome us to be who we can be in this moment.

My time is too short but I have trusted the intention. (more) 🧵

Happy Easter Everyone!

Today, we look back at the history of Easter to our nation's relationship to this holiday and how we can learn to come together on this day in the midst of the present crisis...

#srilanka #history #easter #eastersunday #EconomicCrisisLK #GoHomeGota2022
The Holiday celebrates the resurrection of Christ. According to the New Testament, this occurred 3 days after he was crucified in 30 AD. This holiday concludes the 40 day period of fasting that began with Lent.
Specifically for our nation, Christianity probably first arrived around 72 AD after St. Thomas visited Kerala and his teaching spread southward. However, most of the nation's Christian population came from conversions during the colonial period.

#GoodFriday is arguably the darkest day in all of human history. The day we killed love incarnate, truth incarnate, and God incarnate because He forced us to confront our own sin. So why do we call it good? Because He chose that death on our behalf, dying the death we deserved.
There is no other way to satisfy the justified wrath of God against us, there is no other qualified atonement for our sin, and there is no other way to ultimately reconcile ourselves to the only living God without the recognition of what happened on #GoodFriday and why.
#GoodFriday is God’s answer to the evil in the world, which we caused. An offer of an undeserving atoning sacrifice that when accepted will begin to make all things new. For God confronts the evil in this world at the molecular level where it starts — in our collective hearts.

The True Cross, buried in a vegetable garden in Jerusalem, was found by the Sasanians troops & sent to Ctesiphon. Yazdin, the Xtian treasurer of Khosrow II, cut pieces of it & placed them within bejewelled crosses & sent them to the important Xtian leaders of the empire. #Easter
The return of the True Cross remained a controversial matter. In his court defense after his removal from power, Khosrow advises his son Kavad II not to return the cross & keep it, thus maintaining an advantage over the Byzantines. Kavad seems to have followed the advice!
The True Cross was returned probably in 630, by Queen Boran, Kavad’s sister & a ruling queen by her own right. This was probably the conclusion of hostilities with Emperor Heraclius, although he had celebrated the return (anticipating it?) already in Sep. 629.

Another story in which (transgender) sleb is shown wearing pinky-purple lipstick. That is so distinctive, innit? (Also, what do you use to *blow whistle*? Lips, right?) Kid mentioned as well. What are the odds? #symbolism #occultelite Image

1/ Attention fellow sugar addicts:

Today is the soft-open of my new business, Marcenet Mercantile, named after my grandmothers, Marcella and Neta.

(BONUS: Discount code 15PERCENTOFF)

Shown here: home made marshmallows enrobed in Belgian Chocolate.

2/ I won't be posting every day about chocolates or caramel or cookies, but about once a week, I will add things to my store and will post about them. Pictured here: home made caramels in the best Belgian dark chocolate on the market.

3/ If someone told me I'd become a chocolatier in my 50's, I would have said...yeah, that sounds about right. 🤣 When one door shuts, a window opens, which is great unless you get too fat from eating the "mistakes" to fit through a window. ➡️shop.castiron.me/marcenetmercan… ImageImageImageImage

#Breaking: #Egypt executed a Coptic monk convicted for killing an abbot in an ancient desert monastery, his brother has told .@AFP. Hany Tawadros said "we were told at 8 am this morning that the execution took place in Damanhour prison & I am on my way to pick up the body"
"I didn't even tell the rest of the family because I didn't want them to be heartbroken. We thank God in any case," Tawadros told me. Security & judicial sources also confirmed his hanging by rope to .@AFP, which comes a couple of weeks after at least 9 were executed #Egypt
In a case that shocked the Middle East's largest religious minority, prosecutors said the ex-monk confessed to the murder. But in his testimony, a sobbing Tawadros, accused interrogators of stripping him naked & torturing him to confess. Our .@afp story: barrons.com/news/egypt-han…

Good afternoon #PrimeMinister,
Reading the @Telegraph article below has caused me significant angst. As a healthcare professional who has seen just what #COVID19 can do, I am struggling to understand the rationale behind this decision.
🧵
@BorisJohnson
telegraph.co.uk/politics/2021/…
Just as we are unlocking cautiously you want to risk the lives of more individuals by removing one of the few mitigations in secondary schools?
We know that #COVIDisAirborne & that we have several #VariantsOfConcern here already.
Have you seen this chart #PrimeMinister?
V few <40s will be vaccinated by May 17th & while their individual risk of serious disease or dying is low, their risk of #LongCovid is MODERATE!
Many parents & teaching staff are <40.
The numbers of #NHS & teaching staff w/ it already are horrendous. Why put more ppl at risk?

This morning's Pause for Thought: (Thread)

I’ve been thinking about three people this week.
- Jesus, as it was Easter weekend.
- Martin Luther King Jr, as it was the 53rd anniversary of his assassination on Sunday.

#Easter #MLK53 #MLKDAY
- And Mahatma Gandhi, as today is the anniversary of The Salt March – a 24 day protest against the British Salt Tax in India.

We often talk of Jesus, Gandhi, and Martin Luther-King Jr. in glowing terms. But actually their lives were lives of difficulty.
All three of them promoted non-violent resistance against injustice, yet often I feel we sanitise their stories, and neuter their contributions to history.

The same @Pontifex who condemned Azerbaijan’s military aggression against Armenia, the same Pope to recognize the #ArmenianGenocide you deny, and the same Pope that on Easter called on #Azerbaijan to #FreeArmenianPows

Oh and by the way, read this Nasimi
From talking about @Pontifex and #Easter to fake propaganda and #Armenophobia #DontBelieveAzerbaijan Image
1) King Urnayr of Caucasian Albania was baptized by Catholicos Saint Gregory the Illuminator in 314. Caucasian Albania along with Caucasian Iberia (326) were extremely intertwined with Armenia and among the first nations to convert to Christianity. Nothing to do with Azerbaijan.

I just popped on here for a minute to get a news update and there are debates going on in my mentions about Mary Magdalene. This reminds me that one of the best things about Twitter is the side order of erudition.

Mary Magdalene is a pivotal figure in the Easter story.
The debate over Magdalene's status as an unmarried woman hanging out with married and unmarried men has been going on for millennia and is very much about erasing her role and that of all women in the Christian story. Something to contemplate, since Jesus was not sexist.
#Easter
Whether she was or was not an actual sex worker, that her story is framed as a "fallen" woman is meant to diminish her role as, with John the Apostle, Jesus's confidant. Magdalene was the person that the risen Jesus first appeared to. Then John. Those Jesus loved most.

On the 53rd anniversary of the day Dr. King was assassinated, here is a #thread of #speeches and #sermons in which he speaks truth to power, shares about his philosophy of nonviolence, and expounds on issues of injustice and what our righteous, rigorous response should be. #MLK
“We’re coming to get our check.” #MLK on #poverty, #economic inequality, and America’s refusal to distribute “land to Black people, although the nation distributed land to other groups.
Today also marks the 54th anniversary of #MLK’s ‘Beyond #Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence.’ Please spend some time with it. “If America's soul becomes totally poisoned, part of the autopsy must read: Vietnam.” Link:

#VirtualDogWalk

Today’s walk was designed to avoid the BH crowds, and it paid off.

It was worth picking our way along a muddy track and crossing a stony dry stream bed.

We didn’t see anyone until we nearly got home.

Blissful!

“No Lie Can Hold This Body Down” | A Resurrection Sunday Sermon by Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II pscp.tv/w/czhtozFvTlFs…
“Evil may so shape events that Caesar will occupy a palace and Christ a cross, but that same Christ will rise up and split history into A.D. and B.C., so that even the life of Caesar must be dated by his name.” -Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
When I see what some so-called Christian pastors and politicians are doing in the name of Jesus, it makes me ask the resurrection question, "What have they done with my Lord?" #Easter #Easter2021

In 1920, the "Nabi Musa" celebrations took place on April 4, coinciding with #Passover and the Greek Orthodox #Easter.
Amin al-Husseini, who was then at the beginning of his career, and Araf al-Araf stirred up the celebrating crowd with enthusiastic hate speech that day.

As a result, after the traditional prayer at the end of the holiday, the incited #Arab crowd marched from the mosque in the Judean Desert, 20 kilometers from #Jerusalem, to the homes of the #Jews in Old Jerusalem, shouting "Adbah al-Yehud" (Slaughter the Jews).

And a call that later turned out to be correct - "a-Daula Mana" ("The (British) government is with us").
The #Arab crowd shouted "Independence Independence" & sang: "#Palestine is our land - the #Jews are our dogs." During all this time, #Arab

An #Easter basket is incomplete without Peeps. How are these marshmallow blobs made?

We visited Just Born's Pennsylvania factory to see how @PEEPSBrand's iconic treats come to life. 👇
Peeps are a household name.

People use them nationwide to make dioramas, participate in the "100 Peeps challenge," and even pop them in the microwave to see if they'll explode.
Easter accounts for 70% of Peeps' annual sales.

But Peeps fell into the Just Born company's lap sort of by accident.

1) Morning @GavinWilliamson, just reading the update from @PHE_uk @GOVUK below ⬇️.
gov.uk/government/pub…
2) Wondering how this particular bit of advice ⬇️ will play out in schools & early years settings after #Easter?

Crowded poorly ventilated classrooms w/ up to 30 kids from different households are the very essence of HIGH RISK spaces. Dining rooms/PE halls could even be worse!
3) If I’ve understood it correctly anywhere in the RED AREAS needs extra attention?

INDOORS ✅
HIGH OCCUPANCY ✅
SILENT, SPEAKING, SHOUTING, SINGING, PHYSICAL EXERTION ✅
POORLY VENTILATED ✅
& NO FACE COVERINGS ⬆️ THE RISK
