The Assumption; Dormition;
Feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Blessed Virgin Mary

Mary (“Miriam”) bears the same name as Moses’ sister. A strong woman. She is married to Joseph. The names of the rest of the family are also strong names recollecting their early history of liberation. Jesus (Joshua = “God saves/liberates/sets free”), James (Jacob), Joseph, Simon (Simeon), Judas (Judah), (Matthew 13:55). And, yes, we know Jesus… Continue Reading

Religious leaders pray next to Olympic Flag by Christ the Redeemer, Rio de Janeiro

I am regularly despondent because of the evil perpetrated by religious people. Religions make such lofty claims – and the result is so often the opposite: disunity, acrimony, not listening to each other, violence, abuse,… – the list goes on, In Real Life, and in the Digital World.

Tomorrow, August 6, is the Feast of the Transfiguration AND Hiroshima Day. This is a reflection of mine on the connection between those two: The story of the Transfiguration is the story of Jesus climbing a mountain with his closest friends. There Jesus has a profound experience. There is a dazzling light, a cloud that… Continue Reading
