Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

Oh Beth thank you for sharing this experience and place, catching it so fresh in your words and heart and mind.

Lovely.

So beautiful - the light as tender as your thoughts, thank you Beth.

Absolutely beautiful impressions.

I had this feeling in Sciacca, Sicily, when we walked into the church where my great grandfather was baptized. I barely knew him, and my cousin and daughters certainly never even met him. Yet, when we walked in, we all quietly and independently began crying. There is so much we do not understand and have rejected on basis of science, myself included.

Beth, what the others said above, plus my hearfelt appreciation for this post.

this is great. thanks for sharing

Wonderful. I'm planning on visiting a friend in Rome in either March or April next year and it will be my first time there too. These posts are getting me even more excited for my trip. I'll be sure to put aside time for the tempietto (and anything else you may recommend).
