Unusual Saintly Business


“Dagara people’s main job is to look the dead in the face, to treat their bodies not as remains but as temples of grace and beauty continuing from this world to the other."

Everything is disconnected. It is just disconnected in the right way when we create the illusion of connection.
Saint Nicholas
Detail: The Life & Miracles of Saint Nicholas
Artist: Alexander Boguslawski
The vitae of St. Nicholas and His Hagiographical Icons in Russia, Vol. 2 doctoral dissertation by Alexander Boguslawski, University of Kansas, 1980.

"As stories about Saint Nicholas multiplied, incidents were told to give witness to his holiness. In this one, Nicholas must have been in the desert of the soul, as he asked God for a revelation. Then Nicholas could be be confident of God's presence and have renewed confidence in God's call to serve as a bishop, loving and caring for the people.

"So Nicholas made his way up a mountain where he prayed. As he prayed, a river—a hidden treasure of water—gushed forth, flowing down the mountainside.

"Nicholas rejoiced at the sight. He came down the mountain renewed and refreshed to live out his call to serve God and God's people."

The Bellshrine of St. Patrick
The Bell of the TestamentSaint Patrick's bell

A Social History of Ancient Ireland
P.W. Joyce 1903

"The Irish for a bell is cloc, clocc, or clog, akin to the English clock. The diminutive form cluccene is used to denote a small bell, called also lam-chlog, 'hand-bell. St. Patrick and his disciples constantly used consecrated bells in their ministrations. How numerous they were in Patrick's time we may understand from the fact, that whenever he left one of his disciples in charge of a church, he gave him a bell: and it is recorded that on the churches of one province alone - Connaght - he bestowed fifty. In the Tripartite Life we are told that a certain bell called Bethechan, belonging to St. Patrick, was a little bell of Iron"" (cluccene becc lairnd).

"The bell of St. Patrick, which is more than fourteen hundred years and is now in the National Museum, in Dublin: it is the oldest of all; and it may be taken as a type of the hammered-iron bells. This is the bell known as Clog-an-uudhachta, or the 'Bell of the Will' (so called because it was willed by the saint to one of his disciples), which is much celebrated in the Lives of St. Patrick."

"Crazy" Lyrics:

In a church by the face
He talks about the people going under
Only child know
A man decides after seventy years
That what he goes there for
Is to unlock the door
While those around him criticize and sleep
And through a fracture on that breaking wall
I see you my friend and touch your face again
Miracles will happen as we trip
But we're never gonna survive unless
We get a little crazy
No we're never gonna survive unless
We are a little
Cray cray crazy
Crazy are the people walking through my head
One of them got a gun to shoot the other one
And yet together they were friends at school
Get it, get it, get it, yeah!
If all were there when we first took the pill
Then maybe then maybe then maybe then maybe
Miracles will happen as we speak
But we're never gonna survive unless
We get a little crazy
No we're never gonna survive unless
We are a little
Crazy
No no we'll never survive unless we get a little bit
A man decides to go along after seventy years
Oh darling
In a sky full of people only some want to fly
Isn't that crazy
In a world full of people only some want to fly
Isn't that crazy
Crazy
In a heaven of people there's only some want to fly
Ain't that crazy
Oh babe Oh darlin'
In a world full of people there's only some want to fly
Isn't that crazy
Isn't that crazy Isn't that crazy Isn't that crazy
Oh
But we're never gonna survive unless we get a little crazy crazy
No we're never gonna to survive unless we are a little crazy
But we're never gonna survive unless we get a little crazy crazy
No we're never gonna to survive unless we are a little crazy
No no never survive unless we get a little bit
And then you see things
The size of which you've never known before
They'll break it
Someday
Only child know
Them things
The size
Of which you've never known before
Someday
