Christmas Mistery

Merry Christmas!



On the Nativity of Christ

Today the Virgin gives birth to him who is above all being,

and the earth offers a cave to him whom no one can approach.

Angels with shepherds give glory, and magi journey with a star,

for to us there has been born a little Child, God before the ages.

(Kontakion, by Romanos the Melodist - 752)

Kids killed in Pakistan


God is Good. 
God is Merciful. 
God doesn't reward murderers.
What does really move assassins that take the lives of God's creatures?


Let's pray for the mothers and fathers of the students killed in Pakistan.

You are my HoneyBunch Sugarplum





You're my Honeybunch, Sugarplum
Pumpy-umpy-umpkin,

You're my Sweetie Pie
You're my Cuppycake, Gumdrop
Snoogums-Boogums, You're
the Apple of my Eye

And I love you so and I want you to know
That I'll always be right here
And I love to sing sweet songs to you
Because you are so dear

Dr Sheik Umar Khan (1975-2014)

Dr. Sheik Umar Khan contracted the virus ebola and died tuesday afternoon
The virologist treated more than 100 pacients at the hospital in Kenema, in Sierra Leone. He was the only specialist in viral haemorrhagic fevers the country had. Despite wearing protective gear, dr. Sheik Umar Khan was infected, dying less than a week after his diagnosis was anounced. Three nurses at the facility also died. They gave their lives to save others. Their sacrifice is moving and feed our faith in humanity, specially when there are so many people in the world who chooses to dedicate themselves to killing and destruction.

The Guardian published an interview with an MSF psychologist who reveals the trauma of dealing with the ebola outbreak for medics, cleaners and the families of the dead. Ane Bjøru Fjeldsæter also mentions the joy they feel when someone is cured.
