Music
In Greek mythology, the muses were the daughters of Zeus the king of the gods and Mnemosyne the goddess of memory. The muses inspired men to create what we commonly call the fine arts. In this digital realm, you will find music of both high and low culture, from literature to the visual arts to what we narrowly call music in English. Enjoy and be grateful for being human; for the muses have richly blessed our race.

The Gardener

This will likely be my last post before Arimathea’s August recess. Enjoy the summer and stay cool.

Tomorrow will be the feast of Saint Mary Magdalene on the old calendar, and to commemorate the day, I would like to offer a short story by Rudyard Kipling titled “The Gardener.”

The linked text has some typos owing, I assume, to a faulty transfer from scanned text. For instance, “and” ends up as “end” at times. It is easy to correct, however, and I recommend that you read the story twice.

Rudyard Kipling, memory eternal! John Kipling, who died at the Battle of Loos at the age of eighteen, memory eternal!

Saint Mary, please pray for the souls of young men lost in war, who were never given time to learn wisdom or to accept salvation.
