COUNTDOWN TO SACRED SEPTEMBER

This latest blog is about the approach to September which as will I explain is a month of great importance spirituality and also is of great personal importance in our lives.

September I must confess is my favourite month of the year.I once wrote a poem about September.

It is a time to take stock of the year so far. It is the bridge between Summer and Winter, the start of the real change in the seasons weather and the start of the countdown to Christmas.

But I also feel that September has a more important function. Besides being a time to take stock of your life. I also feel that it is the time of the year to analyse your life and see what improvements you can make in your life and how you can try and help make the world a better place.

I would suggest that you seat down and meditate for twenty or so minutes. Then examine your year so far and see what changes you want to make in your life. Perhaps you want to start meditating on a regular basis. Or perhaps start doing some voluntary work or else get involved in a peace group and anti war campaign.

Best wishes to all for the future.

ST GEORGE,S NOBLE LEGACY AND HIS RELEVANCE TO OUR PRESENT TIMES.

In this latest blog I will look at the legacy of England,s patron saint St George.

St George Englands patron saint was a Palestine Syrian Christian martyr who was executed in 303 because he refused to renounce his Christian faith. The fact that he was of Palestine descent is ironic as Tommy Robinson, zionist fascist English Defence League have tried to claim St George as a symbol. However, St George was obviously a just and noble man. Somebody all decent people should identify with.

He is also a focus for international unity. Besides being the patron saint of England, his feast day being celebrated on the 23/4/18. His feast day is celebrated by the Russian orthodox church on the 3/11/18 and the Egyptian Coptic church on the 17/11/18. Many other countries also celebrate St Georges feast day on different dates.

St George is very relevant for our very difficult present time as a focus for international unity and justice. If you are a person of faith I would suggest asking him to intercede on your behalf and also to make the present world a more just place.

In conclusion ironically my next blog will be related to England and how we can defeat the English Defence league.

Best wishes to all for the future.
