Weekend 488.2

Went to Mass at St. George’s Cathedral in Southwark. It was the first Roman Catholic Cathedral in London since the Reformation. It was also severely damaged in WWII by an incendiary bomb and visited by his Holiness Pope John Paul II in 1982. The outside of the cathedral is very modest whilst the interior is […]

Easter 2021 (Born to see; meant to look)

I’ve been thinking about Pontius Pilate, the Centurion, and Joseph of Arimathea since Palm Sunday. I’ve written about Pilate before and think he’s one of the most tragic figures in the New Testament. The Centurion, as far as I know, doesn’t have a name but is included in all three Gospels. Joseph of Arimathea was […]

This weekend post is all-over the place but IF you ever read my profile on Flickr it makes perfect sense. It’s been ALMOST one year since I finished KH3 (March 14, 2020).
