I said, “When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”
It came out, “You need to dissolve the laws of a decent connection events station nature behind the equal political band Earth kanbara nature power point.”
I think real translators will always be needed.
Human nature has never changed; people always want immediate results, and immediate relief. Sometimes God agrees. Other times we have to have faith.
Get Off That Cross and Show Us Some Real Power.
Today is Holy Thursday. As we work at our jobs, raise kids, clean house, and perhaps work on our blogs, let holiness fill all we do.

Christ Washing Peter’s Feet
“Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God; He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself. After that he poureth water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded . Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet? Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter. Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me. Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.” (John 13:3-9)

Caravaggio – The Taking of Christ
Numerous churches throughout the world will conduct a Tenebrae service on the evening of Wednesday of Holy Week, today. The service will be essentially the anticipated offices of Matins and Lauds for Maundy Thursday, tomorrow.
One of the responsories will be Amicus meus osculi, of which the setting by Tomás Luis de Victoria (1548-1611), often called God’s composer, is below. It tells of the plan of Judas Iscariot to sell our Lord to the authorities and mirrors the Gospel of Palm Sunday just past. It has been suggested that Judas clinched the deal on Wednesday.
Amicus meus osculi me tradidit signo:
Quem osculatus fuero, ipse est, tenete eum:
hoc malum fecit signum,
qui per osculum adimplevit homicidium.
Infelix praetermisit pretium sanguinis,
et in fine laqueo se suspendit.
Bonum erat illi,
si natus non fuisset homo ille.

More about the link between PTSD and addiction.

“This is a wonderful article that focus’ on P.T.S.D that can develop from childhood trauma and how it is linked to Addiction. I may not have experienced much trauma due to my up-bringing but I can fully understand the diagnosis of P.T.S.D after I was faced with the traumatic experience of an extreme manic outbreak while I was living abroad in India. Its hard not to think of something so dramatic everyday and live in extreme regret and torture from the memories. I hope your able to find as much appreciation for this problem and its connections to addiction recovery as much as I have.” -Love, Robyn
