Fr. Barnabas Powell: the Lord's Pascha
« on: April 30, 2011, 09:11:10 PM »
Fr. Barnabas Powell's column this week deals with the place in our lives for time-honored rituals.

From the article:
Jesus, the new Moses, leads his people through a Red Sea of baptismal waters dyed with his blood, in which sins are drowned like Pharaoh's army. We wander through life's wilderness, with trials and temptations inspiring our yearning for the heavenly promised land.

My only weakness is, well, never mind

And you'll sleep, but they'll find you

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river

guess where did he got most of his ideas and who was among the first to use that type of interpretation... it is Origen... Origen in his homily to Exodus... the reading that lightened up my interest to the writings of the fathers..
