St. Charbel Makhluf

St. Charbel Makhluf (1828 – 1898) was a Maronite monk from Lebanon. Maronites are a group of Christians with a long history in the Middle East. At a young age, St. Charbel became a shepherd to his family’s flock after his father died. His pious family upbringing taught him to love God greatly. Later, he joined a monastery and became a priest. Finally he became a hermit, living by himself in prayer and fasting. After his death, many healings and miracles occurred through his intercession. St. Charbel’s feast day is on 24 July.


St. James the Greater

St. James, the brother of St. John, is called ‘the Greater’ to distinguish him from another apostle with the same name. St. James and his brother left their fishing nets to follow Jesus as His first apostles. Once, Jesus rebuked them for wanting to call fire from heaven to destroy an unbelieving town. St. James was also a witness to the Transfiguration. He was the first apostle to be martyred. He is often depicted as a pilgrim with a hat and water-gourd because many pilgrims make the ‘Way of St. James’ across Europe to visit his tomb in Spain. St. James’ feast day is on 25 July.

The world sound like it is in war.

Gaza
Jews and Arabs
Islamic and Christians
Syria
Egypt
Iran
[Why aren’t more people worried about this? There are at least three cases of genocide. It is 2014. We should be passed genocide. Really. Human life is important. You are important. Life is worth living.] They are all (for the most part) Abrahamic religions. I understand that it is complicated on the political side. But is shouldn’t be complicated on the human side. Me
Not that I’m killing myself. But my heart is at war. I don’t like conflict. I don’t like fighting. I like talking it out.

I am sad that I’m leaving. I’m overwhelmed about leaving my friends. I’m sad about my body, which is sad in of itself. There is lots of contradictory conflict with in myself. But. Love has conquered death. We were not made for this world but to love and to be loved. Love is our hope.
"If you look at the fact that you have a roof over your head, food to eat, that you are young and beautiful and live in a peaceful land, then no, you have nothing to be sad about. But the fact is, we are not only a physical body, we have souls too, and sometimes our souls get sick. If you break a leg you don’t just say ‘I have no reason to have a broken leg’ and ignore it; you seek help. It’s the same when your soul gets hurt. Don’t apologize for being sad."
My doctor when I told her I had no reason to be sad (via hrive-ithiliel)

My mom is Jewish, (which makes me Jewish). I have Arab friends.
