Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

The Theotokos

I have found a wonderful icon, (new to me, although certainly not actually new) called The Jerusalem Theotokos, (Madonna Gerosolimitana). I like this icon very much, especially after reading the following quite amazing quote: "The Virgin Mary looks a lot like the one on the icon of the Virgin Mary of Jerusalem. She is exactly the same. I have seen her many times and I don't know of any other icon resembling her so much".
- Elder Paisios the Athonite (1924 -- 1994)

Our Lady Theotokos pray for us.
