anti-misanthropy in the context of religion
“Not even a sparrow, worth only half a penny, can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it”
-Matthew chapter 10 verse 29
I realize it’s not exactly relevant but it’s where my brain went. I can’t really force all my thoughts into words right now but I like this post, because it gave me those thoughts.
I will be writing my not-so-well-thought-out response from the perspective of my not-so-perfect Catholic understanding. Long response ahead:
Amid the civil unrest and violence in Egypt, are the mainstream media ignoring the burning of Churches by Islamists taking place at this moment in Egypt?
Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God, Mother of Christians, Mother assumed body and soul into Heaven, pray for the Christians of Egypt.
As the Eastern Tradition focuses more on the Pneumatic aspect of Christianity and the Western Tradition focuses on the Passion and Suffering, so to does the Vestments differ.
These black vestments are gorgeous.
I went up to one of the bishops afterwards and I said ‘bishop, I gotta tell ya, this is so powerful. I had no idea there were so many Christians in Iraq.’ That bishop was gentle with me, but this is what he said: ‘Son, this is where Christianity started. You didn’t invent Christianity in America, you just domesticated it.’ He said, ‘you go back and you tell the Church in North America that we are praying for them. We are praying for them to remember who they are.’
