Cultured = Museum?
.
Need to look cultured, so I visited the Imperial Treasury museum 🤣
This particular reliquary contains what is believed to be a wood from the True Cross.

#Κωνσταντινούπολις was the largest and wealthiest city in #Europe and it was instrumental in the advancement of #Christianity during #Roman and #Byzantine times as the home of the #Ecumenical #Patriarch of #Constantinople and as the guardian of relics such as the Crown of Thorns and the #TrueCross. After the final loss of its provinces in the early 15th century, the Eastern Roman (Byzantine) #Empire was reduced to just Constantinople and its environs, along with Morea in #Greece, and the city eventually fell to the #Ottomans (1453) after centuries of long siege's.

Catholic Church #35: Monastario de Tarlac (Tarlac, Philippines). Got to check this off my bucket list! This monastery houses one of the True Cross relics (a piece of the original cross on which Jesus Christ died on). The first of a few that I hope to see around the world. If you notice, the altar is gated... not even a church can be kept sacred by thieves in the Philippines. #Catholic #TrueCross #Relics #Tarlac #Philippines

This is the Shrine of the True Cross in Dickinson, TX, home of a relic of the True Cross. This parish was almost destroyed by the hurricane Harvey a few months ago as you can see in some of the pictures. Tonight on the most peaceful and hopeful night, the parishioners get to celebrate the holy mass in this church. Even though the church is still under construction, this is a great reminder for us that the Grace of the Lord is always sufficient. There might be difficulties in life that we may stumble and fall, but the Lord ALWAYS ALWAYS give us enough of his grace and mercy for us to get up and keep going. We do not deserve anything , yet his mercy has been giving us everything since the beginning. The Christmas let us remember the HOPE.

Finally! No matter how thick one's hide, the cold front seizing Mexico strikes to one's very bones, but here in Veracruz, in the stunning Orizaba Valley, there is no need for gloves and sweaters. The one exception might be if you're scaling the always snowcapped Pico de Orizaba or Citlaltépetl, the tallest mountain in Mexico, rising just aside my rump.

We had a hard enough time just getting out of this Pemex without trying to climb any such heights. Despite that the attendants didn't care, the manager told us we couldn't ask at the pumps (before then reprimanding an attendant for something else - a very popular person I'm sure), and with another Pemex just a kilometre down the road it was not clear where was best to ask.
----
Decamping to that second it hardly seemed likelier we'd get a ride. Then, after exhausting truckers to ask and seemingly without hope, Nacho waves us over - though he had told us he'd be stopping to see his family first and so couldn't take us he'd had a change of heart, and to Coatzacoalcos we headed!

Two weeks ago I was locked inside the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. While I am still unable to fully describe what happened to me there, I will do my best to unpack the events in my latest podcast (Parts I & II). New episodes of Good Things Radio coming down the pike today, 12/18.🙏🏼 ❤️ 🇮🇱 #AllThingsNew.

The #newcity, founded on the old greek city of #Byzantium, was renamed
#Constantinople. The new city was protected by the relics of the /#TrueCross, the #RodofMoses and other holy relics, that Helena had found
in Jerusalem. #Constantinople served as a pilgrimage site for
Christians and as a way to then go to #Jerusalem themselves. When
#Constantinople fell to the Muslims in #1453, it cut off the way to
Jerusalem for the Christians, and it stopped the trade for Christians
in #theMediterranean. Forty years later, Columbus would find an
alternative route that bypassed the #Muslims. Not only did Columbus
want to find an alternative route #aroundtheMuslims, he also wanted
to find gold and spices in order to raise an army to #retakeJerusalem
from the Muslims and to regain the church of the Holy Sepulcher that
Helena had founded over 1,000 years before. This was the historical
context Columbus was trying to navigate, both literally and
figuratively.

Relic of the Cross of Christ at Saint-Guilhem-le-désert, a gift from the Emperor Charlemagne to his count-turned-monk cousin, Guillaume. This relic, and later those of Guillaume himself, made (and to a degree still makes) this a popular pilgrimage site in itself, as well as being a special stop on one of the routes to Santiago de Compostela. There is also a beautiful museum, housed in the former refectory (I think), of remnants of Romanesque sculptural pieces is a brief but rich encounter.
