Quick note to Something Dreadful!

Yes, my dear, you are spot on. The only thing that you didn't connect is what the grapes represent. What are grapes made in to? And what does this product represent?
Well done!
Thanks for your input also. I really appreciate it.

Eating Grapes With the Devil

This piece is called "Eating Grapes With the Devil." I know some of you have already seen this piece. However, I wanted to know if anyone knows what is meant by the title? Oh yes, there is a meaning. So, if you think you have the answer, by all means, write it down. I am interested in knowing what others think or feel.

Santa Rita of Cascia

St. Rita was born at Spoleto, Italy in 1381. At an early age, she begged her parents to allow her to enter a convent. Instead they arranged a marriage for her. Rita became a good wife and mother, but her husband was a man of violent temper. In anger he often mistreated his wife. He taught their children his own evil ways.
Rita tried to perform her duties faithfully and to pray and receive the
sacraments frequently. After nearly twenty years of marriage, her husband was stabbed by an enemy but before he died, he repented because Rita prayed for him. Shortly afterwards, her two sons died, and Rita was alone in the world. Prayer, fasting, penances of many kinds, and good works filled her days. She was admitted to the convent of the Augustinian nuns at Cascia in Umbria, and began a life of perfect obedience and great charity.
Sister Rita had a great devotion to the Passion of Christ. "Please let me suffer like you, Divine Saviour," she said one day, and suddenly one of the thorns from the crucifix struck her on the forehead. It left a deep wound which did not heal and which caused her much suffering for the rest of her life. She died on May 22, 1457. She is the patroness of impossible cases. Her
feast day is May 22.

Mary Stigmata

I've been rather lax this month in the art department. Not that I don't have a good excuse with the hectic month of January to deal with. However, I have managed to get a bit of work done here and there. The piece below isn't quite finished as of yet, but I thought I would give a little peek. Proof I haven't fallen off the Earth...yet.

Meet Mary Stigmata.

What could be better?

I found this wonderful little box 'o' nuns at Barnes and Noble.

Why yes! I do spend way too much time at Barnes and Noble. Maybe if I say Barnes and Noble enough I can get free goodies! :)

Ok back to the nuns....

I think they go well with my Nun-chucks that Jaysan bought me a few years back. I have made a world domination kit out of my nun collection. When the collection is complete, I shall post some photos, but right now I just wanted to share my adorable new find!

I was recently asked in one of my posts, "What is your definition of "Evil?". What a good question! I do not see evil in the same way as is categorized by Christians. I believe in a balance between good and bad. I don't believe in the Christian version of "God". Therefore, I cannot believe in Satan or "evil" as written in Christian literature. I do find certain acts to be foul and disgusting, and the people who perpetrate such acts are "evil". Not because the devil or Satan lead them to commit such horrendous acts, but because the person themselves are in some way "sick". Do not confuse this statement with mentally ill. I'm sure some people who do commit atrocities do actually have some mental defect. Most, in my opinion, just exercise a lack of self control and complete disregard for others. It really is a simple answer, but I think I will take a bit longer to really express my ideas and opinions on the subject. I hope this post at least helps answer the basic question.

Just follow this:
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you because you never know which of the others is more evil than you. ;)

**I'm not sure who all actually knows this info. The evil in Evil Lily is not about being evil in the satanic sense. My favorite flower is the calla lily esp. the deep purple/black variety. I had an ad in my head that pertained to "good" verses "bad" lilies. That is really all there is to it. Nothing really "evil" about it at all.**
