The Sarabite: Towards an Aesthetic Christianity

There is a continuous attraction, beginning with God, going to the world, and ending at last with God, an attraction which returns to the same place where it began as though in a kind of circle. -Marsilio Ficino

Papal Pronouncements

On the All Too Common Blog, I found these lectures of His Holiness, Pope Shenouda III, Pope of Alexandria, on homosexuality and women's "ordination". They deserve a reading.

Too bad I like Chalcedon so much.

The photo is pretty gangsta though. You don't wanna try n' get up in his bizness, know what I'm sayin'?

Small world, Pope Shenouda was just on a 1/2 mile away Staten Island opening a lovely new Coptic Church in an old re-structured Masonic Hall. No half-stepping with those Arab Christians. Straight shooters!

That's right! He'll swing the censer at you three times then hit you on the head with the hand cross attached to the chain!

He was on my side of town on Thursday morning. I could've seen him if only I didn't have a job to go to at 9am.
