I received this from an intrepid reader:
Father, I have an interesting ‘quick hit’ possible picture post for the blog:
While walking in downtown Toronto I noticed the attached poster splashed all around. The subject matter does not match the medium given the usual moral relativistic nonsense splashed all over urban streetscapes.
I wonder who has done this? Have local traditional Catholics discovered glue and brush, taking their message to the ‘peripheries’?
I doubt it. But the poster is interesting… and… for the most part… true.
No… but …. hey! Wait just a cotton pickin’ minute!
Take another look.
Something about that last part nagged at me so I did some Google Fu. Speaking of “Nag”, this is a quote from a Gnostic text from Nag Hammadi, the Asklepius. Pretty strange stuff… unless you regularly attend meetings of the LCWR and read the Fishwrap.
Anyone else with a poster?
In the meantime, please take some time to refresh your supply of …
When you’ve had a long hard day as a farmer digging up ancient sealed earthenware jars containing papyrus codices, ponder your newly discovered Gnostic ravings over a steaming hot Fr. Z Swag mug of Mystic Monk Coffee!
Then have your mother burn some of the papyri, because… hey… they start fires well. It’s too krinkly to be good fishwrap. Though I did mention starting fires. I digress.
Did you know that the Mystic Monks right now has the coffee of the month from ancient Egypt!
Well… not exactly ancient Egypt.
More like… not ancient, and not Egypt. But… it’s from a really old place in Africa, not too far from Egypt, insofar as, it is closer to Egypt than, say, … Borneo. Or from Wyoming where the Carmelites need to build their new monastery.
Ancient Egyptian Mystic Monk Coffee!
