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.

I've always admired the stamina of people involved musically in Holy Week, especially people like my mom, who will be playing the organ for every service and working with the choir rehearsing in spare scraps of time.

I participate by doing readings and assisting with Communion, but it doesn't take the same kind of stamina, I suspect. Certainly not as much rehearsal time.

Wow. That volcano eruption is really something. The helicopter was positively dwarfed!

Enjoy Vermont. Have a safe trip. Sending you strength for Holy Week activities.

I'll be thinking of you on Holy Thursday. When I was a kid, all the school children took part in the procession through the Church on Holy Thursday singing a hymn called, I think, "Pange Lingua." It was an absolutely beautiful hymn and I always remember the fulsome feeling of walking, all of us, through the aisles, singing of Easter to come.
