Before bouncing over to Rachel's content, I wanted to share a quote from the Christmas issue of the Prairie Messenger a weekly newspaper produced by Benedictine monks in Saskatchewan (the subsequent issues arrived beforehand but I guess there was a Christmas logjam somewhere in the bowels of Canada Post). Large on the front page, this from Meister Eckhart: "What good is it to me that Mary gave birth to the son of God fourteen hundred years ago, and I do not give birth to the Son of God in my time and in my culture? We are all meant to be mothers of God. God is always needing to be born."

I was so excited to hear this issue that I pushed the wrong button and heard a few recent qarrtsiluni podcasts instead. I love the episodes in which Dave and you talk about the images on qarrtsiluni. You each invariably bring different, interesting perspectives, and your chemistry is uncommon, even for radio.

So I still plan to hear Rachel's interview during my workout tomorrow.

So now I've heard it. It lived up to your billing, and then some.

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.
