  • Fr. John bids Los Alamos farewell

     

    To the faithful readership, I regret to say that this will be the last column in the Los Alamos Monitor. I have been assigned to an Orthodox Church in Texas. 

    It has been a joy to be a contributor to this religion column. Thank you to all who have kept up with the column and shared your comments and feedback.

    Please know that for those who are interested, I will continue publishing on my blog called “Eden and Nod.” The address is edenandnod.blogspot.com.

    Frequently, we have to deal with the grief that comes when a friend or loved one moves away. 

    The experience is akin to that which occurs when we a loved one dies.

  • Pope resigning on Feb. 28, conclave in March

    VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Benedict XVI announced Monday that he would resign Feb. 28 — the first pontiff to do so in nearly 600 years. The decision sets the stage for a conclave to elect a new pope before the end of March.

    The 85-year-old pope announced his decision in Latin during a meeting of Vatican cardinals on Monday morning.

    He emphasized that carrying out the duties of being pope — the leader of more than a billion Roman Catholics worldwide — requires "both strength of mind and body."

    "After having repeatedly examined my conscience before God, I have come to the certainty that my strengths due to an advanced age are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of the Petrine ministry," he told the cardinals. "I am well aware that this ministry, due to its essential spiritual nature, must be carried out not only by words and deeds but no less with prayer and suffering.

  • Divination night

    Our Lady of the Woods will hold a Divination Night at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Art Room of the Unitarian Church. They will gather to do divination for the upcoming year.
    Amber K. and Azrael Arynn K., authors of “Heart of Tarot,” will be among those attending.
    “Heart of Tarot” explores the Gestalt method of reading the Tarot.
    From the introduction:
    “Your mind has an infinite capacity to make connections and to find meanings in disconnected facts or abstract symbols. Gestalt Tarot strips the cards of their traditional meaning, then asks you to find your own meanings in the cards.”
    In addition to this method of reading the Tarot, it will be possible to explore other methods of divination, including pendulum, palmistry and more.
    Attendees are encouraged to bring their favorite divination tools or method and come prepared to share or learn a new technique or two. They can do divination for themselves or offer to do readings for others.
    Tea will be provided. Bring snacks to share.
    Any level of proficiency is fine.
