Today’s Holiday: Feast of the Baptism of the Lord


Today’s Holiday:
Feast of the Baptism of the Lord

Jesus’ baptism by John the Baptist in the River Jordan has always been considered a significant manifestation of Jesus’ divinity, and has been celebrated on Epiphany by the Orthodox Church since the end of the second century. However, in 1961 the Roman Catholic Church began to celebrate it as a separate feast in its own right. The original date for the feast was January 13, but when the Church calendar was reorganized in 1969, the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord was moved to the Sunday following the Epiphany.

Dr. James Bedford Becomes First Person to Undergo Cryopreservation (1967)

The field of cryonics involves techniques in which cold is applied for a variety of therapeutic goals, including brief local anesthesia, destruction of superficial skin lesions, and preservation of cells, tissue, and organs—or the entire body—in the hope that healing and resuscitation may be possible in the future. In 1967, Bedford became the first person to have his entire body frozen in perpetuity. Since then, hundreds have undergone the procedure. What celebrities have been frozen?

Article of the Day:
Gaeltachts

Irish Gaelic was made an official language of Ireland in 1921. Although hundreds of thousands of Irish citizens and people of Irish descent have some competence in Irish Gaelic, it is a true community language only for a small number of people on Ireland’s western coast in what are called Gaeltachts—an Irish Gaelic term for regions in Ireland where it is spoken as a native language. In what ways has the government attempted to revive Gaelic as the primary language of the country? More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Lyrics


Somewhere beyond the sea
Somewhere waiting for me
My lover stands on golden sands
And watches the ships that go sailin’

Somewhere beyond the sea
She’s there watching for me
If I could fly like birds on high
Then straight to her arms
I’d go sailing

It’s far beyond the stars
It’s near beyond the moon
I know beyond a doubt
My heart will lead me there soon

We’ll meet beyond the shore
We’ll kiss just as before
Happy we’ll be beyond the sea
And never again I’ll go sailing

I know beyond a doubt, ah
My heart will lead me there soon
We’ll meet (I know we’ll meet) beyond the shore
We’ll kiss just as before
Happy we’ll be beyond the sea
And never again I’ll go sailing

No more sailing
So long sailing
Bye bye sailing
