I don’t understand the point of quoting things in Greek like Christos Anesti or Kurie Eleison. Like, is it an attempt to be hip and on the cutting edge or what? The Greek language seems to be becoming the hipster Christian catchphrase repository. If…

And I forgot to add that Kyrie eleison means “Lord have mercy”, not “Come, Lord”.  

Also, Christ is risen.  May you also know the joy of Pascha.  :)

???? But it’s part of the liturgy to say the kyrie in Greek? What’s the matter with wanting to experience things in their original language? When I read the new testament in koine does that make me some kind of poser hipster?

St. Mary’s Cemetery, Bloomfield, New Mexico

St. Mary’s is a small, well maintained Catholic cemetery that sits in the shadow of a huge natural gas plant. 

The cemetery and the San Juan Basin Gas Plant are surrounded by several other processing plants, and lots of houses.  Knowing there are little kids living across the street from those factories makes me sad. 

I wish everyone who wants to drill the whole country would come live here for a while first.

reminds me of my family’s ancestral cemetery on the island of Curacao next to an oil refinery…except of course, there are no residences close by.
