Note to My Readers: from mid-June to mid-August (6/18 - 8/20), I will be taking a summer break from posting new articles for my Thursday and Friday slots. This will only affect my Thursday series on the global growth of Christianity, and my Friday series, the "Theological Bestiary" of birds, both of which will resume in late August. During the summer, I'll be dusting off some of my best essays from the first few years of this blog (a decade ago), as well as my verse play "Thus Ends the World," and re-posting them in the Thursday and Friday slots. All other weekdays will continue to feature new material throughout the summer.

Saturday Synaxis

Lord Jesus, think on me,
Nor let me go astray;
Through darkness and perplexity
You point the heavenly way.
Lord Jesus, think on me,
That when the flood is past,
I may the eternal brightness see,
And share your joy at last.

- Synesius of Cyrene
