Christopher Marlowe and His World

Image
I'd started writing about soliloquies in Marlowe's "Dr. Faustus...." That reminded me of film noir and the Gunpowder Plot. So today I'll be discussing Christopher Marlowe, but mostly his era: Elizabethan England. Along with European politics and whatever else comes to mind.... More at A Catholic Citizen in America .

And he poured out the coins of the money-changers and overturned their tables. And he told those who sold the pigeons, “Take these things away; do not make my Father's house a house of trade.” His disciples remembered that it was written, “Zeal for your house will consume me.” So the Jews said to him, “What sign do you show us for doing these things?” Jesus answered th

Texas Power Failure: Winter Storm Uri (and Minnesota)

Image
A winter storm was moving across North America a couple weeks back. By February 15, when The Texas Tribune posted Miguel Gutierrez Jr.'s photo of Austin's Interstate 35 near Stassney Lane, we were dealing with sub-zero (Fahrenheit) temperatures and serious windchill. And, for the most part, dealing successfully. I live in central Minnesota. The mid-February storm included temperatures that were unusually cold, compared to the last 50 years.

And he was transfigured before them,   and his clothes became radiant, intensely white, as no one   on earth could bleach them.   And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus.   And Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good that we are here. Let us make three tents, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah.”   For he did not know what to say, for they were terrified.   And a cloud overshadowed them, and a voice came out of the cloud, “This is my beloved Son; listen to him.”   And suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyone with them but Jesus only.

Christ, the big surprise on the Super Bowl (Spanish) Cristo en el Super Bowl.

Image
        Sin esperarlo y para sorpresa de muchos, la centralidad de la fe en Cristo del pueblo americano logró llegar hasta el horario prime de la emisión más vista en el mundo: el Super Bowl. La compañía de coches Jeep puso al aire un anuncio sobre el deseo de unidad en su país y escogió mostrar un elemento en el corazón de Estados Unidos, que muestra su naturaleza y raíces. El hecho ha sido condenado por sectores de la izquierda laicista de ese país, ya que muestra el punto medio que puede unir a esa nación: Cristo. Y para los que tratamos de compartir el amor de Jesús y la fe cristiana, fue una gran lección de cómo hacer llegar su mensaje a   todas las personas, a pesar de las paredes que insisten en mantenerlo fuera del mundo.    Por: Jeep Co.       https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vgbUVpWL8ME
