Tonic for Health

This looked interesting.
It is basically organic  apples, beets and carrots. They say strain the drink after bending, but I see no need for that. The fiber is good for you.

I would also add the carrot greens, and the beet greens, because they actually have more vitamins than the roots. Also keep the apple seeds too in the apples too, good nutrients-- amygdalin fights cancer.

After you buy the veggies, I would cut them all at once and put them in a a freezer bag and freeze them, (they will keep for a long time) maybe, don't cut-up the apples though, but you could experiment, and  try  it. If you cut apples, spray them with lemon juice, to keep them from oxidizing and turning brown as they freeze.

Stoicism, the Logos, Christianity, and the Bible The Imaginative Conservative
Bradley J. Birzer

stoicismAnd the end and the beginning were always there
Before the beginning and after the end.
And all is always now. Words strain,
Crack and sometimes break, under the burden,
Under the tension, slip, slide, perish,
Decay with imprecision, will not stay in place,
Will not stay still. Shrieking voices
Scolding, mocking, or merely chattering,
Always assail them. The Word in the desert
Is most attacked by voices of temptation,
The crying shadow in the funeral dance,
The loud lament of the disconsolate chimera
                                          —T.S. Eliot, Burnt Norton

Zeno and the Founding of Stoicism
Zeno of Cittium founded the Stoic School in 322B.C. The name came from the lecture hall: the Stoa poikile (the outdoor porch). Zeno took much from both Plato and Aristotle; turned their metaphysical speculations into religious dogma/presuppositions. Stoicism, therefore, did not serve as mere speculation for these Hellenistic Greeks; it revealed the path to a virtuous life. While Zeno possessed great skill, most scholars consider him a second-rate thinker compared to Plato or Aristotle. His student and successor, Cleanthes of Chrysippus, wrote down much of what Zeno had taught; he developed this thought further in 705 “books”, all believed to be well argued, according to Father Copleston, but poorly written.[1]
Three stages of the Stoa
  1. Early Stoa (Zeno, Cleanthes, and Chrysippus of Soli)
  2. Middle Stoa (Virgil, Cicero (though Cicero called himself an Eclectic and a New Academician), and Seneca)
  3. Late Stoa (Epictetus and Marcus Aurelius—for whom the Logos Incarnate was the Roman Empire)
Believed (defined most clearly in/remembered from second stoa):

The Miracle of Lanciano

Recently, one of our parish priests mentioned the Eucharistic miracle of Lanciano in his sermon and also mentioned some scientific studies that had been performed. Could you please provide a little more information concerning this miracle

 The miracle of Lanciano is the first, and many believe the greatest, Eucharistic Miracle of the Catholic Church. Keep in mind that strictly speaking a miracle is an extraordinary event produced directly by God or by His will and command through an agent, such as a saint. The miracle occurs in a religious context and is a clear sign of supernatural, divine intervention. Most importantly, the miracle arouses within the spectator or recipient a greater conviction of faith in God.

With this in mind, we now turn to the miracle in question which occurred in the 700s in the town of Lanciano, then known as Anxanum, an ancient Roman city, located southeast of Rome. There the monks of St. Basil had established a monastery under the patronage of St. Longinus, traditionally believed to be the centurion at the crucifixion who proclaimed, Truly, this was the Son of God (Mt 27:54) and pierced the side of our Lord with his lance (Jn 19:34).

One day, a certain monk was offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Although we do not know his identity, an ancient document described him as ...versed in the sciences of the world but ignorant in that of God. Apparently, he had been plagued by doubts about transubstantiation: he agonized over whether the bread and wine changed substantially into the Body and Blood of our Lord at the words of consecration, and whether our Lord was truly present in the Holy Eucharist.

A Cure for Glaucoma?

Beth Fontenot, MS, RD, LDN

Glaucoma damages the optic nerve in the eye and is one of the leading cause of blindness in the US. Millions of people are affected by the disease; and though it can be treated, it’s incurable. The risk of developing glaucoma may soon be lessened, a new study suggests, thanks to one of the B vitamins.
Glaucoma begins gradually, and there are no warning signs, so vision changes may not occur until the disease is advanced. It can occur at any age, but it is most often seen in older people. Some people lose vision completely, while others lose it only partially. Any vision lost is lost forever.
Young mice who received extra B3 had a significantly lowered risk of developing the disease later in life, and it prevented further damage in mice who were already showing early signs of glaucoma.
Researchers found that the degeneration of the optic nerve seen in glaucoma is linked to low levels of a precursor to vitamin B3, or niacin.
With this in mind, the scientists gave mice bred to be susceptible to glaucoma oral doses of vitamin B3 to see if it would help to prevent the development of the disease. Young mice receiving extra B3 had a significantly lowered risk of developing the disease later in life, and it prevented further damage in mice who were already showing early signs of glaucoma.
Among mice given B3 as a preventive measure, 93 percent did not develop optic nerve damage, the distinguishing characteristic of glaucoma.
Therapeutic levels of niacin should only be taken under the guidance of a physician.
