St. Bartholomew Comments

St. Bartholomew, 1st. century, one of the 12. All that is known of him with certainty is that he is mentioned in the synoptic gospels and Acts as one of the twelve apostles.

I leap into the drunkenness of arrogance every time I wish for all which our Lord detested,; St. Bartholomew made his a leap of faith into Heavenly comforts of the breasts our Lord's eternal joy....hmmm!!

    Saint Bartholomew, Nathanael, honestest amongst those who plough Earth for Christians, pray for us all, All; pray as we are flayed and betrayed; pray as we be laughed and gold be calfed; pray our skins be saved, Oremus; pray our sins be salved, Doremus; pray Yahweh forgive us; pray Sophia be with us; pray Barbelo inspire us; pray Aeonia require us to Heaven through thine own sweet Pearled namesake Gate, along that crystalline street, twixt tower after builded tower, unto that Throne whence Yahweh Smiles, where trees ne'er wither and martyrs while, punting on the Holy Stream with Jesus, Mary, Joseph supreme; pray when we reach the Holy Shore we shall not travel any more, Amen, Selah Lamblight upon us all! Alleluia!
