Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

That's wonderful, Beth. I am (illogically and with considerable effrontery) so proud to know you!

Yes, me too! This is very moving reading.

"We go searching in religion for comfort and peace for ourselves, but the heart of all the world's religious traditions is transformation - transformation into people who have glimpsed greater peace and comfort, perhaps, but are willing to forego resting in that warmth in order to try to share it with others."
Amen!

Thanks for the report and update - very moving.

Just wanted to say hello
