Friends of the West that quiet storms.

Dhokhino shomirono shaathe baajo benuka modhu madhobi shure chaitra purnima raathe, baajo benuka dhokhino shomirono shaathe, Friends of the West speak so that the sweetness of the spring praises the full moon of the chaitra season. Baajo sheerna srotho nodhi theere, sing of the broken ones near the banks of the river, ghuum jobe nome mono gheere, when sleep envelopes the souls, jobe jhorero melubai theere, when the storms are finished, kono phulo renuka what is left behind is a banquet of flowers. Modhu malothir bela bone ghonao nisha shopono aano jagorone, spin the web of dreams amidst the sweet maloti flowers in bloom. Mono jobe rohe na ghore biroho loke shae bihore, when hearts can no longer bear burdens, they become desolate as the people who stole them. Jobe nirashar baluchore  when despair’s weaving pode baluka, has fallen like sand, baaje benuka, dokhino shomirono shaathe. Sing of the West that comes with friends.

Truth and butchery.

johnbunyan1The English preacher John Bunyan was not actually licensed to be a preacher due to his dissenting beliefs and was ordered by England to either serve 12 years in jail or give up preaching.  He chose the former, and this quote was his response. “I will stay in jail to the end of my days before I make a butchery of my conscience. John Bunyan. (The pilgrims’ progress.)”

Credo in Unum Deum Patrem Omnipotentes, Belief in One God. Creed of Catholic Liturgical Rites. MK Gandhi’s Charkha, Symbol of Sadarangile, the Eternal.

Credo in unum Deum, Patrem omnipotentem, factorem coeli et terrae, visibirlium onmium et invisibilium, Et in unum Dominum Jesum Christum, Filium Dei unigenitum. Et ex Patre natum ante onmia saecula. Deum de Deo, lumen de lumine, Deum verum de Deo vero. Genitum, non factum, consubstantialem Patri: per quem omnia facta sunt. Qui propter nos homines, et propter nostram salutem descendit de coelis. Et incarnatus est de Spiritu Sancto ex Maria Virgine: ET HOMO FACTUS EST. Crucifixus etiam pro nobis; sub Pontio Pilato passus, et sepultus est. Et resurrexit tertia die, secundum Scripturas. Et ascendit in coelum: sedet ad dexteram Patris. Et iterum venturus est com gloria judicare vivos et mortuos cujus regni non erit finis. Et in Spiritum Sanctum, Dominum et vivificantem: qui ex Patre Filioque procedit. Qui cum Patre, et Filio simul adoratur et conglorificatur: qui locutus est per Prophetas. Et unam, sanctam, catholicam et apostolicam Ecclesiam. Confiteor unum baptisma in remissionem peccatorum. Et exspecto resurrectionem mortuorum. Et vitam venturi saeculi. Amen. I believe in one God, The Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth,  and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord, Jesus Christ the Only-begotten Son of God. Born of the Father before all ages. God of God, Light of Light, true God of True God. Begotten, not made, of one substance with the Father. By whom all things were made. Who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven. And became incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the Virgin Mary: AND WAS MADE MAN. He was also crucified for us, suffered under Pontius Pilate, and was buried. And on the third day He rose again according to the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and His kingdom wil have no end. And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of life, Who proceeds from the Father and the Son. Who together with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, and who spoke through the prophets. And one holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. I confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I await the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.
