If Jesus has, in fact, risen, then He's not kosher for Passover.

Absoutely!... Mahler's Resurrection Symphony (No 2): a deep. spiritual journeythat ends in trueRead More heaven... and composed by a Jew (this is my take as one, sorry)

Good one, Leslie. No one should let this day pass without resolving to know this symphony. It is myRead More understanding that "The Resurrection" compassed by Mahler is not that of Jesus of Nazareth, but rather of us... A vision of our resurrection to an afterlife. It is the affirmation of a resilient and sacred Humanity. Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong about this. Regards, jMichael

I agree, Barbara. A wedding is for celebrating, and from the reaction of the newlyweds andRead More congregation, this looks like a good start to any marriage.

I think it's most appropriate. The church house is not a graveyard.
Singing priest is up to nearly 30M views on Youtube.

I love this and it's obvious everyone else does to

It has become apparent after 63 years of life that there are a few who would complain about saving aRead More child stuck down a well because it wastes government resources. My principle concern is that the media (TV, Print, Social, et al.) incites the main by pointing out, what we should all already know, that a small number of misanthropes finds ugliness in beauty at every turn.

Terrific comment, Bill!

I must correct your Postscript. You almost got it right; Patty is always wrong. The reason is notRead More quite just that "Paddy is short for Patrick." Patrick is the English version of the name, and we all know the issues between The English and Irish. Patrick in Gaeilge (Irish) is actually Pádraig or Pádraic, and thus one uses D, not T. Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig oraibh!

St. Patrick's Day 1980 was the day my wife and I had our first date. That makes St. Patrick's Day aRead More special day to me.=)

Galway just celebrated their 111th Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade. That would have put their firstRead More parade in 1903. Not sure when Ireland's very first St. Patrick's Day parade was held (or where), but it was prior to your claim, "Ireland did not have a parade in St. Patrick’s honor until 1931, in Dublin."

The purpose was to combine two separate holidays into one and schedule it on a Monday which wouldRead More accomodate more workers easily. When I was in school we celebrated two different days, February 12th for Lincoln's birthday and February 22nd for Washington's birthday.
gdfo February 15, 2014 at 03:04 pm
yes. We had GW birthday and Lincolns birthday. Back when, in school we focused on each one on theRead More appropriate day in History session. That was all. If anyone had a day off from work, I did not know it. Then, Valentines Day was a Saint/martyrs day of remembrance. It had nothing to do with romantic love. As children we did make gift cards and hand them out in school. That was about it. Now these events have become retailer sale days.

Exaclty. It is all about the money now.
