My Take: The Christmas message of the real St. Nicholas – CNN Belief Blog

If you keep wandering, though, eventually you pop out onto a plaza and see the Basilica di San Nicola.

By Adam C. To this day, Nicholas’ tomb continues to excrete a small amount of watery liquid.

When Nicholas returned to deliver anonymously the third bag of gold for the last daughter, the curious father was ready. More churches would be dedicated to him than to any other person except Mary, the mother of Jesus. His bold initiative to help three poor girls in need sparked a tradition of gift-giving that has carried into modern times. It is said that the city was intentionally constructed in a topsy-turvy way so that anyone trying to raid it would get swallowed and lost in its labyrinth. The first medieval drama that was not intended as a worship ritual and that was written in the vernacular was about Nicholas.

He was bishop of the church in Myra in what was then the Roman province of Lycia, Asia Minor. It is the tale of three poor daughters.

The old town of Bari is a brambly, medieval maze of streets and alleyways that cross and crisscross. The story of his helping the three sisters jumped off the dry page of history and into the minds and imaginations of young girls and boys and adults.. Nicholas.

The Barians resolved that his bones be moved, or “translated,” to use the expression of the day. He challenges us at this time of year to give not only to those we know and love, but also to those we do not know and especially to those who find themselves in need.

Four years ago, I embarked on a quest to discover the truth about Santa Claus and the original St. Nicholas of Myra” (Baylor University Press, 2012) and associate professor of religion at Campbell University.

But the Nicholas story was about a regular family facing a familiar crisis to which ordinary people could relate. Nicholas was easy to spot. He did not want praise or recognition for his generosity.

Christmas exposes atheist divide on dealing with religion

They found more than they had bargained for: Nicholas’ bones were floating in a sweet-smelling liquid like oil or water. Through a grate you will see a large marble and concrete tomb, St Nicholas’ final resting place.

Perhaps he would have slipped into obscurity as nothing more than a minor saint – originally he was a patron saint of sailors – except for one unique story that circulated about him shortly after his death.

They involved monks who went into the desert and experienced the tempting of the devil and the burning of the sun, mothers who’d had their entrails spilled onto the Colosseum floor for Christ, mystics who saw the heavens open in their visions.

Nicholas had been aware of a certain citizen of Patara – in Lycia, modern-day Turkey – who had once been an important and wealthy man of the city but who had fallen on hard times and into extreme poverty. The vast majority of saint stories that circulated in the early church involved extraordinary miracles and healings or dramatic martyrdoms and confessions of Christ.

The bones were taken back to Italy and a basilica was erected in Bari to house them. Nicholas, hiding swords and shovels under their clothes. The money was used as a dowry for the first daughter.

The opinions expressed in this commentary are solely those of Adam C. You can go into the basilica and pray, rest or just gawk, but the real show lies below.

But St. Later tradition reported that, finding the windows closed, he dropped the bag of gold down the chimney, where it landed into one of the girl’s stockings that was hanging to dry.

No wonder, then, that sailors from Bari wanted his bones. He attended the Council of Nicaea in 325 with the other bishops of the Christian empire, where he would have seen the Emperor Constantine.

Editor’s note: Adam C. He feared they would each in turn be forced into prostitution to support themselves.

Sometime later, Nicholas made a second nighttime visit so that the second daughter might marry. English.

They quietly made their way to the church of St. Known as the myrrh or manna of St. English, Special to CNN

Little is known for certain about the life of Nicholas, whose name means “the people’s champion.” He was born sometime after the year 260 and died sometime after 333.

CNN’s Belief Blog: The faith angles behind the biggest stories

The poor man reasoned that it was impossible to marry off his three beautiful daughters because they lacked dowries for proper marriages to respectable noblemen. As soon as they entered the church, they barred the doors, smashed the marble cover and looked inside.

When medieval Christians looked at the great church frescoes, basilica mosaics and cathedral stained glass pictures of Jesus, Mary, John the Baptist, the apostles and saints of old, there was little to distinguish one saint from another.

So there is a lot more to the story of St. It seemed only a matter of time before they would plunder the tomb of St. He bagged a sum of gold and in the dead of night, tossed it through the man’s window. Nicholas.

Every year on May 9, one of the Dominican friars charged with the upkeep and care of the Basilica di San Nicola squats down in front of a small opening in the tomb and slowly collects a vile of the myrrh of St. It is then diluted in holy water and bottled for pilgrims and visitors.

More impressive than its connection with modern-day Santa Claus traditions is the tale’s historical uniqueness. The basilica housing that tomb dates to the 11th century. He was always pictured carrying three bags of gold. Instead of fixating on the commercialization and greed that plague the modern Santa Claus, I chose to see in it the lasting power of a simple act of kindness.

And there, in a gray tomb, lies the “real” Santa Claus. Nicholas. In the 1080s, Seljuk Turks invaded Lycia and Asia Minor (what is now Turkey). Nick than meets the eye. Those in the pews had never heard anything like it.

It’s such a strange and surprising tale that historians assume it must be based to a large degree on fact. My search took me many places, sending me finally across the Atlantic to Bari, on Italy’s Adriatic coast.

Indeed, Nicholas would become the most popular nonbiblical saint in the pre-modern church. Nicholas, the liquid was highly valued for its purported miraculous and therapeutic qualities.

Down dark steps you will enter a candle-lit crypt, built in 1089, supported by 26 marble columns. Under the nose of the Turkish overlords in control of the area 47 Barian sailors disembarked at Myra disguised as pilgrims.

More than a footnote to the legend of Santa Claus, Nicholas is a model of Christian kindness, an inspiration for charity and a saint to be remembered. The man grew so desperate that he lacked the very essentials of life.

Nicholas heard this heartbreaking news and resolved to do something about it. The magical Christmas Eve visits from Santa Claus represent the vestige of this old story. When he heard a bag hit the floor, the father leapt to his feet and raced outside, where he caught the mysterious benefactor.

Nicholas revealed his identity to the father but made him swear never to tell anyone what he’d done. English is author of “The Saint Who Would Be Santa Claus: The True Life and Trials of St

Top Chef 2: Raising the Roof in LA

All rights reserved.

Chef Rautureau is doing a Moroccan pork shoulder with farro, roast cauliflower and brussel sprout slaw.

The lines at Chef Samuellson’s station are long, but the judges are a little put off by the heat in his BBQ sauce. This is traditionally a spot in the show where someone leaves something behind and has to make a last minute change in plans. Chef Burke served his custard from egg shells, and the display and flavors are well received by the judges. The two and a half hour cooking time will run while she gets her stew.

Onto the Elimination Challenge where the chef’s will cater a celebrity birthday party for Mekhi Phifer from ER. The ASPCA gets $10,000 for her win as well.

Chef Burke is going for a sweet potato custard with crab hush puppies and pickled watermelon rind.

Chef Gonzalez comments, “If you want to know how good a chef is order the simplest thing on the menu.” Gonzalez looks like the first injury of the competition, slicing a gash in the middle finger of her left hand opening some ranchero cheese.

Copyright 2010 CBS. Chef Gonzalez is struck: she left her stew prep back in the Top Chef kitchen. Most interesting is the Moroccan Grilled Cheese with feta and raisin walnut bread from Chef Pope.

Chef Pope is working on shrimp and grits “mac and cheese style” with an okra and tomato jam on the side.

Chef Burke declares he is going for “gourmet soul food

For winning the Quickfire, Chef Pope gets first selection of protein (shrimp) at the market-and no other chef gets to make that choice.

Chef Gonzalez is working on a yucca and bacon mash with oyster and hot sausage stew and a side of fresh corn.

Cheff Samuelsson is doing a BBQ chicken with sides of mac and cheese and collard greens.

In this challenge, two contestants move onto the championship round, three will go home. Chef Gonzalez gets a total of 15.5 stars and wins the challenge-with an amazing comeback from kitchen disaster.

Joining Gonzalez from this week’s competition in the championship round will be Chef Samuellson with 14.5 stars.

In the hour of prep the chefs have in the Top Chef kitchen, they have to pack their food and ingredients for transport to the party.

Chef Pope’s charity Recipe for Success picks up $5000 for her Quickfire win.. The judges give a good review to Chef Gonzalez’ stew dish, but lament the missing (burnt yuccas) starch. The chefs have 20 minutes to make “extraordinary grilled cheese.”

The Contestants: Marcus Samuuelsson, David Burke, Monica Pope, Carmen Gonzalez and Thierry Rautureau.

From cilantro to harissa (hot chill sauce) to broiled tomatoes, to prosciutto (on the outside of the sandwich)these are no normal grilled cheese. “I want you guys to make your own version of soul food for this party,” is the instruction Phifer gives to the chefs.

Chefs Burke and Pope jump in to help out, and do some prep for Gonzalez-but while not focused on the dish burn the yuccas. Chef Rautureau gets a unanimous good review for all but the cauliflower, “Cooked to an inch of its life,” is what Judge James Oseland feels.

The chefs heat things up quickly during the Quickfire challenge with a favorite of hostess Kelly Choi. They are making some kicked up grilled cheese

Best State Park For The Whole Family

It was finally acquired by the CCC in 1930, and the CCC boys made the park.

What I liked Best

I liked the suspended bridge that crosses over the Santa Fe River. It was a great first day. The park is located on the Santa Fe River, which is a tributary of the Suwannee River. Fires are allowed in certain areas of the park. It is fun and it doesn’t bother me if some ornery kids way at the other end make it move. Other fish in this part of the river are Catfish and Bass.

Not much remains of the town today except the wire roads and mill dams. It was called Leno.

After visiting O’leno, stop in High Springs and visit the town with numerous shops full of antiques, store after store. The grandkids cleaned them and I fried the fish. O’leno State Park has 61 campsites. It will wobble a little and it you want you can make it move. It took only about 1 1/2 hours to catch our supper. I have found this the best way to spot wildlife and see the beautiful scenery. The first telegraph passed through the town. This was the way for the first explorers. The River Rise Trail is 4.25 miles. This was a good pioneer town, until in 1896 the railroad bypassed the town and it died. I have no idea how the beams were lifted that high because they are so big and heavy and this was in 1936.

The park is open 365 days a year. The Grist Mill seen above was one of the towns important features. Several photos and memorabilia from Roosevelt and his ties to the CCC.Roosevelt started these projects to get the people back to work. When I walked across the bridge, I could see where the shallow rapids started. The Santa Fe is a tributary of the Suwannee River. There is a section marked for swimming. We won’t be here but I am sure there are some interesting items.

The Town Of Leno

The town was founded in the 1800s, and was on the Santa Fe River. 441.

If you want to see wildlife up close you can rent or bring your canoe. We always bring our own canoe.

The river continues underground near High Springs.It reemerges over three mile away in River Rise State park. If you follow the 6 mile one it will take you to a lake. Fresh Brim are fun to catch and eat. I did not dial it as I would rather see everything up close. The shortest trail is .63 mile.

The kids will love the Nature Center. The park cost $12.50 for camping, an a entrance fee of $5.00.

Near the Nature Center is a Time Capsule that will be open 70 years from now. There are 2 camping areas, Magnolia, and Dogwood. I like Magnolia the best it is closer to the river.

The second thing I found interesting was the Historical Center. People come from all over the country.

There is also a cell phone tour which you can see the number in the photo below. The first name was called Keno and served as a gambling town.Communities existed later for the business needs of the Florida farmers.. O’leno is 6 miles North of High Springs on U.S. The kids love to swim. If you can’t walk I suppose this is helpful.

The Historical Center also has a display of Indian artifacts that were found along the river.

What’s Fun About The Park?

O’leno, has something for the whole family. The campsites are good with easy access in and out with water and electric. O’Leno was developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s. There are several easy to get to fishing spots. It is well marked where to swim for the kids.

There are 5 different trails for the hikers to take. It took awhile but I finally got my granddaughter to cross the bridge. The bridge is constructed out of cypress beams and it is very well built. The Center has turtles and a building with live snakes. The bridge was built by the CCC. I like to fry the fish when they are fresh. The snake handler will let you pet some of them.

I get so much peace when I go camping and hiking. Fried brim are good eating. A slice from the one of the oldest cypress trees.Events in history show that the tree is more than 800 years old. Pets are permitted. The area is sometimes called the “Natural Land Bridge”. The CCC was run like the Army and worked and served the people.It was a great idea to get people working again.

There is great fishing for the whole family. My daughter caught a nice catfish. Rowing the canoe is also excellent exercise for the upper arms. Its almost like the Lord is taking to me and showing me all his radiant beauty.

Best Fishing Spots

The first day we were there we all went fishing, We caught enough fish for supper

Aladdin (DVD) Review – free article courtesy of

In fact, the later appearances of comic voices in animated films such as Shrek (Mike Myers and Eddie Murphy), Mulan (Eddie Murphy), Finding Nemo (Ellen DeGeneres), and The Lion King (Nathan Lane Whoopi Goldberg) can most likely be traced back to the overwhelmingly positive audience reaction to Robin Williams and the comic relief his blue genie provided. Riding into Agrabah at the helm of a triumphant parade, only Jafar knows the true secret of Aladdins identity and his success, and hes determined to scheme and connive until he gains control of the magic lamp himself.

This article was posted on September 04, 2006

Anxious to follow up on the massive commercial and critical success of Beauty And The Beast, Disney created another animated masterpiece with Aladdin. During this dangerous trek through the streets of her kingdom, the girl befriends Aladdin who is immediately awestruck by her beauty. Inside, the Sultan of Agrabah lives a carefree life of opulence and luxury with his beautiful daughter Jasmine and a cunning, ambitious adviser named Jafar. . With him, Aladdin is transformed into a legendary blockbuster hit. But when Princess Jasmines escape is brought to the attention of Jafar and her father, she is quickly rounded up, and Aladdin is thrown in prison. With the voice of Robin Williams leading the way, the film is a non-stop foray into the timeless fantasy world of A Thousand And One Arabian Nights spliced together with the rapier-like wit and quick-fire humor of one of Americas most talented comic performers.

Aside from Robin Williams, this film is easily forgettable. Hoping to seize the kingdom for himself, Jafar enlists the aid of Aladdin in an effort to obtain a fabled magic lamp, the purported powers of which are unlimited. Yet, in stark contrast to the poverty-ridden streets below, the lustrous facade of a massive palace towers high above the urban world of Aladdin. Although not nearly as successful in terms of critical acclaim as the aforementioned film, or later Disney creations such as The Lion King and Finding Nemo, Aladdin is nevertheless just as entertaining and probably the funniest of all the animated Disney features. Granting Aladdin the ultimate power of three wishes (with certain conditions such as not wishing for more wishes or wishing for someone to fall in love with you), the genie transforms Aladdin into a powerful Prince, thus making him eligible to marry Princess Jasmine.

Back to “Music And Movies” Index

When Aladdin fails in Jafars quest, he is left for dead. Legend has it that only a diamond in the rough is capable of retrieving the lamp from the Cave of Wonders. Fun for children and adults alike, Aladdin is the perfect film for those who enjoy creativity, humor, and a great story.

Aladdin (DVD) Review

 by: Britt Gillette

Forced to spend her days inside the palace walls, the headstrong Princess Jasmine sneaks out in order to experience the world around her. Along the way, hes joined by his loyal companion Abu, a clever and enterprising monkey. This once overlooked aspect of the animated film has since become a staple, and Aladdin is the reason why. In addition, the film boasts a beautiful soundtrack that gave birth to the chart-topping hit A Whole New World. All others will be swallowed whole by the endless sands of the desert.

The film takes place hundreds of years ago in the windswept sands of the kingdom of Agrabah, where a young street urchin named Aladdin wanders the streets, stealing and hustling for survival. But he soon discovers the mysterious lamp and the blue genie who resides within

United States Visa Information by Manu Goel

But there is no certainty that you will be provided the non-immigrant visa. The administration will hold such lottery in 2007, for which it has short listed 82,000 people out of more than 5.5 million applicants. If the USCIS approves the petition then the foreign worker can be hired on H-1B visa. . It is very easy to get a tourist or business visa and it is issued in a few weeks.
