Today’s Holiday:
St. Kitts and Nevis Independence Day

Saint Kitts and Nevis is an island nation in the West Indies in the Leeward Islands. In 1782, the British took permanent control over the islands; the islands, along with nearby Anguilla, were united in 1882. Anguilla seceded in 1980, and Saint Kitts and Nevis gained independence on September 19, 1983. Every year, the people of Saint Kitts and Nevis celebrate Independence Day on September 19. Various celebrations take place across the islands on this day, including a cultural program of dance, live music, local food, and traditional displays.

Today’s Birthday:
Lajos Kossuth (1802)

Now considered a national hero, Kossuth was a Hungarian revolutionary who favored dissolving the union between the Hungarian and Austrian crowns. The fiery orator was a principal figure of the 1848 Hungarian Revolution. Appointed provisional governor, he soon became virtual dictator. In 1849, Russian armies intervened in favor of Austria, forcing him to resign. He fled to Turkey and later to Italy, where he watched as Hungary reconciled with the Austrian monarchy.

Ötzi the Iceman Is Discovered by German Tourists (1991)

In 1991, two hikers discovered a well-preserved corpse trapped in ice near the border between Austria and Italy. It proved to be that of a man who lived about 5,300 years ago—making it the oldest natural mummy ever found. He was nicknamed Ötzi, for the Ötztal Alps where he was found. Also recovered were clothes, shoes, tools, weapons, fire-starting materials, and medicine. Scientists have since determined that Ötzi ate about eight hours before his death. What did he eat, and how did he die? More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Article of the Day:
Tarring and Feathering

Dating at least to the Crusades, tarring and feathering is a physical punishment that was used to enforce formal justice in feudal Europe and, later, vigilante justice in the American frontier. The practice involves stripping victims to the waist, covering them in hot tar and feathers, and often parading them around in public with the intent of causing enough harm and humiliation to drive them out of town. In 2007, a Belfast man was tarred and feath: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

“Fishing Boats on the Beach at Les Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer” (Arles, early June 1888) [F413]
– See the drawing after which this painting was made [F1428] http://bit.ly/2qyK8u0
Painting of the Exhibition: ‘Paintings and Drawings by Vincent van Gogh’ – Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam. July – August 1905
Organized and funded by JOHANNA VAN GOGH-BONGER, aided by Willem Steenhoff, curator of the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam.
Compiled from pages 296-303, ‘Vincent van Gogh: The Years in France: Complete Paintings 1886–1890’ by Walter Feilchenfeldt (2013) http://amzn.to/2uUzAI3

During his five-day stay at Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, from May 30 or 31 to June 4 or 5 1888, Van Gogh made two paintings and seven drawings.

The present canvas was made no sooner did he arrive in Arles and after the drawing which he had made on the spot [F1428] (Private collection; see drawing http://bit.ly/2qyK8u0).
It was sent to Theo on 13 August 1888 http://bit.ly/2a5T2TF

“… Now that I’ve seen the sea here I really feel the importance there is in staying in the south and feeling — if the colour has to be even more exaggerated — Africa not far away from one.
I’m sending you by same post some drawings of Saintes-Maries. I did the drawing of the boats as I was leaving, very early in the morning, and I’m working on the painting, a no. 30 canvas (Van Gogh actually meant no. 25 canvas; the present work) with more sea and sky on the right.
It was before the boats cleared off; I’d watched it all the other mornings, but as they leave very early, hadn’t had time to do it.

(…) About staying in the south, even if it’s more expensive — Look, we love Japanese painting, we’ve experienced its influence — all the Impressionists have that in common — and we wouldn’t go to Japan, in other words, to what is the equivalent of Japan, the south? So I believe that the future of the new art still lies in the south after all.

(…) I’d like you to spend some time here, you’d feel it — after some time your vision changes, you see with a more Japanese eye, you feel colour differently. I’m also convinced that it’s precisely through a long stay here that I’ll bring out my personality. The Japanese draws quickly, very quickly, like a flash of lightning, because his nerves are finer, his feeling simpler. I’ve been here only a few months but — tell me, in Paris would I have drawn in an hour the drawing of the boats? Not even with the frame.” – To Theo. Arles, 5 June 1888 http://bit.ly/2fH7aJ0

About the painting:
“Can you see why these fishermen’s boats appear slightly unreal? Compared to the irregular surface of the sandy beach, they’ve been painted in an overly two-dimensional way. The boats are made up of areas of uniform colour within strong outlines. Furthermore, the boats don’t cast shadows on the beach. These stylistic elements were familiar to Van Gogh from his collection of Japanese prints.

Van Gogh would have preferred to make this painting on the beach, but he couldn’t, because the fishermen put out to sea very early every morning. He did draw the boats there, however, and later made this painting at home.” – See more at http://bit.ly/29b2hFV

Sfânt român care s-a săvârşit în temniţa Aiudului: Părintele Ilarion Felea (†18 septembrie 1961)


Sfânt român care s-a săvârşit în temniţa Aiudului: Părintele Ilarion Felea (†18 septembrie 1961)

Sfânt român care s-a săvârşit în temniţa Aiudului: Părintele Ilarion Felea (†18 septembrie 1961). Bucuraţi-vă, Sfinţilor Mărturisitori, care în temniţă Golgota neamului românesc aţi suit!
Mărturie a părintelui Ioan Bărdaş, fost deţinut politic, despre înmormântarea mărturisitorului celui ales al lui Hristos.

Sfânt român care s-a săvârşit în temniţa Aiudului: Părintele Ilarion Felea (†18 septembrie 1961)

Era prin anii 1960-61 (n.n. – mai precis, 18 septembrie 1961), in celularul din Aiud. Intr-o zi se anunta, prin formele de mass-media, din puscarie, morse la perete si calorifer:
– a murit Parintele Ilarion Felea!

(…) La Academia Teologica, catedra lui se transformase in amvon; avea si o voce baritonala care te cucerea. Douazeci de stilouri asterneau pe caiet toata lectia din ziua aceea. Fizic era o figura impunatoare de barbat, fata incadrata de barba, arata ca un cap de efigie, era generos si comunicativ, de aceea era simpatizat de toti.

Era mot, de la radacina, de pe valea Crisului Alb, poate ca si aceasta i-a dat destinul inalt pe care l-a avut. La manifestari si diferite ocazii, il invitau unii si altii:
– Parinte, canta-ne ceva din ale Iancului!

Si canta taraganat si duios si te ducea pe meleagurile Iancului si ale lui Horea in vremile de vrednicie ale motilor.

Scria cu duh deosebit despre cele sfinte a lui Dumnezeu si despre cele vrednice de istorie ale neamului nostru. Eu l-am luat ca mentor duhovnicesc in viata mea de preot si pastor de suflete, pe unde am trecut. De aceea era asa de cunoscut de multi si in lumea ortodoxa si la celelalte confesiuni. In Aiud si in cellelalte inchisori era cunoscut pentru expunerile si textele biblice pe care le transmitea pe banda mintii mai ales la cei tineri. In Aiud eru fete inalte din alte confesiuni dar nimeni nu avea popularitatea: parintelui Staniloae, a ieromonahului Anania si a parintelui Ilarion Felea, toti fiind in Aiud la ora aceea.

Cand moare cineva afara, vin toti cei dragi si-l petrec dupa toata randuiala crestineasca. Pe parintele Felea l-am petrecut, cu sufletele noi “fratii si rudeniile lui” de idealuri si suferinta. N-a fost batran dar a murit pentru ca nu I s-a dat asistenta medicala, asa “se planifica” in puscariile comuniste.

Oamenii, respective noi detinutii, am urmarit mersul bolnavului pana a inchis ochii.
Afland vestea mutarii sale la Domnul, am sta de veghe doua seri, pana l-au dus la groapa la “trei plopi”, cimitirul detinutilor politici. A doua seara au si dat alarma cei de jos de langa morga, unde era mortul:
– Acuma il duce la groapa pe parintele Felea!

Intr-adevar, se auzea o caruta, o drosca brasoveana, trasa de un cal cu doi gardieni pe capra ducandu-I sicriul. Erau trei porti pana la poarta principala si in linistea noptii se auzea mersul carului. Noi stateam sub patura, era dupa ora 10, ora stingerii, nu ne miscam. Acuma incepea “prohodul”. Toti cei 5000 de prizonieri politici din Aiud, asistati de cei 400 de preoti ortodocsi se rugau dupa randuiala: “Cu sfintii odihneste Doamne sufletul adormitului robului tau Ilarion preotul, unde nu este durere, nici intristare, nici suspin ci viata fara de sfarsit”. Acestea le rosteau toti chiar daca in celula nu era preot, daca era si preot se facea o randuiala mai dezvoltata, tot sub patura.

Cei de jos ne comunicau ca s-a ajuns la poarta principala, unde se petrecea scena cea mai sinistra: venea ofiterul de serviciu cu o bara ascutita de fier si o infigea in inima mortului sa se convinga “stapanirea” de moartea omului. Ce scena sinistra si lugubra, demna de evul mediu si ea se petrecea in evul modern in era comunista.

Carul funebru se ducea la “Trei plopi”, la cap i se punea un stalp de lemn pe care se batea o tinichea cu numarul matricol din dosarul detinutului. Dupa codurile comuniste, atata mai ramanea din viata omului.

Cand se incheia prohodul cu cuvintele Amin!- se mai auzeau morsele la perete si calorifer:
– Dumnezeu sa-l ierte, in veci sa fie pomenirea lui!

(Telegraful român nr. 31-34/1994, p. 4, Mărturie a părintelui IOAN BĂRDAŞ, fost detinut politic la Inchisoarea din AIUD).

William Carlos Williams (1883)

Trained as a pediatrician, Williams wrote poetry and practiced medicine in his New Jersey hometown. Regarded as one of the most original American poets of the 20th century, he closely observed American life and recorded his impressions in a lucid style. His poems, such as “The Red Wheelbarrow” and “This Is Just To Say,” are noted for making the ordinary appear extraordinary. Williams was posthumously awarded the Pulitzer Prize for what volume of poetry? More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

The Battle of Antietam (1862)

In September 1862, Confederate General Robert E. Lee crossed the Potomac River to invade Maryland and Pennsylvania. He was met by Union General George McClellan. The resulting Battle of Antietam, fought near Sharpsburg, Maryland, was the bloodiest single-day battle in American history, with a total of 23,000 casualties. It was a Union victory only in the sense that Lee’s invasion was stopped. McClellan was later removed from command and was faulted for failing to act on what crucial opportunity?
