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

Fr. Maximos on War


"You came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the first." Echoing St. Paul (1 Timothy 1:15), we remember this truth at every Divine Liturgy in the prayer before Communion. Petru Rares did not show his people the fall of Constantinople to remind them of the sins of the Greeks more than a century earlier. He did it to remind them of their own sins in their own time.

There is a great mystery here. It is too simplistic to think that divine justice functions according to the laws of Newtonian physics. Every action does not have an equal and opposite reaction. The guilty are not always punished in proportion to their wrongdoing, and the innocent are certainly not spared according to the measure of their purity.


Read the rest here.

Please have a Blessed Day of the Dead and for All Souls Day:

Dies irae
Dies illa
Solvet saeclum en favilla
Teste davidcum sybilla

Quantus tremor est futurus
Quando judex est venturus
Cunta stricte discus surus

Dies irae
Dies illa
Solvet saeclum en favilla
Teste davidcum sybilla

Quantus tremor est futurus
Quando judex est venturus
Cuncta stricte discus surus

Quantus tre-e-mo-or e-est fu-u-turus
Dies irae, Dies illa
Quantus tre-e-mo-or e-est fu-u-turus
Dies irae, Dies illa
Quantus tre-e-mo-or e-est fu-u-turus
Quando judex est venturus
Cuncta stricte discus surus

Cuncta stricte
Stricte discus surus
Cuncta stricte
Stricte discus surus

I just wanted to stop by and say thank you for some of the apologetic work you have done at Sacramentum Vitae and the Ochlophobist. As a Catholic I have been greatly reassured by your words.

I just wanted to stop by and say thank you for some of the apologetic work you have done for Hinduism and Lord Shiva on your website and the beautiful dance and support for Ragas. As a Hindu I have been greatly reassured by your posts and links to dance.
