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!

Let all mortal flesh be silent...

Let all mortal flesh be silent. Let it stand with fear and awe, having no earthly thought. The King of Kings and the Lord of Lords comes to be sacrificed and to be given as food to the faithful. Before Him go the choirs of angelic Hosts, Powers and Principalities, the many-eyed Cherubim and the six-winged Seraphim. They cover their faces as while they chant: Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Sung at the Vespers and Divine Liturgy of St. Basil on Holy Saturday
