Remembering the tremendous mark left by the Brotherhood & Sisterhood of the #Epiphany in their century+ of service to #Bengal, esp. #Behala in #Calcutta, #Kolkata, & #Barisha. Privileged 2 spend a year with them. #SrFlorence became a media star, but it was her lepers she loved.1/ paradisal compound on other side of Diamond Harbour Rd, with its ‘tank’ used by all 4 washing & swimming, mercurial Fr Theodore Mathieson oversaw top classical music training, giving orphans jobs in Army band & Bollywood, & solo cellist Anup Biswas 2/
...Anup preserves the tradition Fr Mathieson created via the musical trust. The #OxfordMission maintains the Behala legacy via an Administrator. The cross is a small copy of the chapel cross, showing the resurrected Christ the community lived & showed 4th joyfully 2 so many.p 3/

Today is #Epiphany, the day we remember the magi from the east coming to pay homage to the Christ child.

Although the Bible is not explicit, I have long appreciated the theory that that magi are the spiritual descendants of the prophet Daniel.

There are several clues. (Cont.)
First , Daniel was a magi himself in the Babylonian court following his exile. The magi (wise men) served as counselors and dream interpreters to the king and his entourage. Joseph would have been a magi of sorts. Makes sense Daniel could have passed down prophecy in Babylon.
Second, they come from the East. This could be any number of places, but given the way geographical locations were discussed at the time, Babylon/Persia makes sense. They particularly would have resources to send such a caravan. Additionally, it rules out a place like Egypt.

Because the fraud is obvious.
To any who care to look at the evidence.
Here is one of thousands of examples.
This was detected by expert computer fraud analysts.
It happened in seconds.
But was planned for months.
Many more details in the video.
Hundreds of more invalidated and illegal votes detected.
Watch and weigh.
Ponder and pray.
Discern and decide.
How much free and fair matter it you.
It matters to every honest persons and voter with a conscience.
It matters to President @realDonaldTrump and his supporters.

He knows what happens - and so do they.
This Wednesday, January 6 so will we.

Oh Lawd 🙆🏿‍♂🙆🏿‍
What wisdom is this?

My God is the WordSmith

In the beginning the WORD already existed.
    The Word was with God,
    and THE WORD was God.
God created everything through The Word.
John 1:1,3.

To truly grasp God, we must first learn to appreciate Arts and science, because with this in mind we would understand how intelligent our God is.
A lot of people do not understand God. We are too religious about God and we miss out on the dynamic and brilliance of God.

Last go for the crib on #BaptismoftheLord... end of #Christmas season in the Western calendar. Back to green, #OrdinaryTime. But that’s still pretty extraordinary in itself... many cribs retain the #shepherds & add in the #Magi. Not sure what they all eat...nearly 3 weeks! 1/
You have to say, it gets pretty crowded & noisy in there...shepherds, lambs, pipes... the ox & ass aren’t #Trappists either... 2/
...and that’s not to mention the #Angels... We conflate 2 separate events a year apart. If #Epiphany had its own octave all would make more sense. It would give #OrdinaryTime 33 weeks too; which makes sense: a week for every year... 3/

The #solareclipse in #Capricorn tonight happens to coincide with #twelfthnight, the eve of #epiphany—and indeed it'll already be Epiphany for many in the eastern hemisphere by the time the eclipse perfects. I have some Thoughts™, so buckle in! #astrology
It's enough to reflect on the fact that the Epiphany story, as it's told in the Xian tradition, involves astrologers being given the gift of seeing things as they really are.
In the story, God is revealed to them, not in the halls of power and privilege but rather among the destitute and the working poor in a town that we would describe today as "flyover country."

Turning my attention to all the outrageous violence that takes place in our land, the tears of the victims with no comforter, the iron grip of oppressors, no one to rescue the people (victims) from them. #AmINext
One have to congratulate the dead who are already gone instead of the living dead who requested to be rescued even while living free. Now they're shackled as they await their fate with calamity. #AmINext
God is in charge not you. Let that sink in. The day you begin to believe you're will have to keep yourself & beat your own heart. #Epiphany

Today I am going to try and cook for the first time since I was paralyzed.

I used to cook most nights for me and The Wife. After Mass on Sundays, I would make brunch.

I made every holiday meal for 17 of our 18yrs together. I did the #Christmas baking.
I started cooking as a child. I grew up in a chaotic household. Great politics but a chronically ill mother. I was the oldest sibling & the maternal stand-in.

I became a vegetarian for political reasons at 14, so I had to learn how cook that diet cheaply since we were poor.

In college I cooked for everyone. I knew how to stretch $.When I was in the domestic Peace Corps I taught people how to cook with next to no money.

I love feeding people.
I think food is an evocation of love for many folks.

I haven't been able to cook since I was paralyzed.
