No meat, no dairy.
Prostrations on every hour.
Here comes theosis!
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

Go find your safe place
For soylent green is people
So beware and hide

You can trust no one
To serve man: it's a cook book!

"I, Lucian, wrote this, I who am skilled in what is old and foolish; For what men think wise is foolish. So then nothing that the mind of man can conceive is certain; What you admire, seems ridiculous to others." - St. Lucian of Antioch

Blessed are you John
Oh divine Son of Thunder,
As you stand by Him.

Yahweh on the Cross,
Was being gracious to you,
As you stand by her.

She, the Full of Grace,
Mother of the Grace-Giver,
Was made your mother.

The Mother of all
Who Yahweh is gracious to,
The Catholic Church!

Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

Your theology
And your psychology is
Bound with silly string

This problem I have?
I don't want to ask my priest
Let's ask OCnet!

Look for my latest book to drop soon: OCnetizens: Haikus of Hope. I'm still working through the members list to make sure I don't miss anybody.

Oregano, garlic
Crushed tomatoes in puree
Onions and simmer

Boil the pasta
Heat up some basmati rice
It's a Lenten feast.
