Between December 1942 and July 1945, a team of scientists, working in secret facilities in various parts of the U. S., researched, built, and tested the world's first atomic bomb. Japan's failure to surrender, together with the possibility of hundreds of thousands of casualties, motivated President Truman to drop an atomic bomb on the Japanese city of Hiroshima. Despite the bomb's destruction of the city, including the immediate deaths of up to 80,000 people, Japan's leaders still refused to surrender. Three days later, an American bomber dropped a second bomb on Nagasaki, leveling that city and killing nearly as many people as had perished at Hiroshima. Soon after, the Emperor led Japan to surrender. In this episode, James and Scott discuss the Manhattan Project, the dropping of the two atomic bombs, the Japanese surrender, and the end of the Second World War.

Our Holy Father, Confessor and Martyr Stephen the New (767)

Saint of the Day

He was born in Constantinople in 715 to pious parents named John and Anna. His mother had prayed often to the most holy Theotokos to be granted a son, and received a revelation from our Lady that she would conceive the son she desired. When the child was born, she named him Stephen, following a prophecy of the Patriarch St Germanos (commemorated May 12). Stephen entered monastic life as a youth, and so distinguished himself in asceticism and virtue that the hermits of Mt Auxentius appointed him their leader at a young age.   'During the reign of Constantine V (741-775), Stephen showed his love of Orthodoxy in contending for the Faith... Besides being a fierce Iconoclast, Constantine raised up a ruthless persecution of monasticism. He held a council in 754 that anathematized the holy icons. Because Saint Stephen rejected this council, the Emperor framed false accusations against him and exiled him. But while in exile Saint Stephen performed healings with holy icons and turned many away from Iconoclasm. When he was brought before the Emperor again, he showed him a coin and asked whose image the coin bore. "Mine," said the tyrant. "If any man trample upon thine image, is he liable to punishment?" asked the Saint. When they that stood by answered yes, the Saint groaned because of their blindness, and said if they thought dishonouring the image of a corruptible king worthy of punishment, what torment would they receive who trampled upon the image of the Master Christ and of the Mother of God? Then he threw the coin to the ground and trampled on it. He was condemned to eleven months in bonds and imprisonment. Later, he was dragged over the earth and was stoned, like Stephen the First Martyr; wherefore he is called Stephen the New. Finally, he was struck with a wooden club on the temple and his head was shattered, and thus he gave up his spirit in the year 767.' (Great Horologion)

https://youtu.be/lDtN9wat_IE Ideology has always been vital to the continued existence of the State, as attested by the systematic use of ideology since the ancient Oriental empires. The specific content of the ideology has, of course, changed over time, in accordance with changing conditions and cultures. In the Oriental despotisms, the Emperor was often held by the Church to be himself divine; in our more secular age, the argument runs more to “the public good” and the “general welfare.” But the purpose is always the same: to convince the public that what the State does is not, as one might think, crime on a gigantic scale, but something necessary and vital that must be sup- ported and obeyed. Th e reason that ideology is so vital to the State is that it always rests, in essence, on the support of the majority of the public. Murray N.

From Gladiator to Rome Total War to Star Wars, today the Praetorians are one of the most distinctive military units of Imperial Rome. It was their job to protect the Roman Emperor and his household, a task for which they hold a somewhat ‘chequered' record (especially when we focus in on the Praetorian Prefects). But what do we know about this unit's origins? How did this powerful force become protectors of the Emperor and his household? What other functions did they serve? And how did they differ from the standard Roman legions in their structure? To talk through the rise of the Praetorian Guard, with a specific focus on the reigns of Augustus and Tiberius, Tristan caught up with historian Lindsay Powell at Fishbourne Roman Palace in West Sussex for the Ancients Podcast. Lindsay is the author of several books about the Early Roman Imperial Period. His latest book, Bar Kokhba: The Jew Who Defied Hadrian and Challenged the Might of Rome, is out now.

He was born in the province of Asia, to a Scythian who had secretly converted to Christianity. Like his parents, he was a secret follower of Christ, serving as a legionary in the Roman army during the reign of the Emperor Decius. During a campaign, an Angel appeared to him, gave him a sword and told him to go into battle trusting in Christ's help. Mercurius plunged into battle, fought his way alone through the enemy lines, and reached the barbarian commander Rigas, whom he killed. Upon the death of their chief the barbarians scattered and the victory was won.   The Emperor, hearing of the young soldier's exploits, promoted him to a position at court. There, lulled by the pleasures and honors of the court, Mercurius forgot his duties to Christ his King. One night the same Angel who had given him the sword appeared to him once again and reminded him of the sword that Christ had given him, an emblem of the battle of martyrdom that he was about to enter. The next day Mercurius, now returned to his senses, refused to offer sacrifice to the gods. When called before the Emperor, he boldly proclaimed Christ and threw off his badges of office. He was thrown in prison and subjected to cruel tortures, all of which he bore with peace and joy, encouraged by the Angel who appeared to him again to offer comfort and encouragement. After long torment he was beheaded in Caesarea in Cappadocia, at the age of twenty-five.

“The difference between stage and screen acting is vast, but it's the same root. It's just some of the techniques are very different. I really know theater because that's where I started. I went at it in a very haphazard way. I had a very haphazard approach. It was not orderly at all. I didn't go to a proper school or anything like that. After fooling around in Europe for almost a couple of years, just because I'd gotten out of the army...and didn't really know what to do or how to do it. And so I just went and while there I did some acting, but nothing very remarkable except doing a nightclub with William Burroughs. That was great fun. I did a little bit of studying here or there...Jeff Corey (and at one class in New York) someone said something that helped me a great deal. And then I just learned by doing it.”Harris Yulin has appeared on Broadway in Hedda Gabler, The Price, The Diary of Anne Frank, The Visit, A Lesson From Aloes, and Watch On The Rhine.

Our Holy Father Amphilocus, Bishop of Iconium (395)

"A fellow-countryman and friend of St Basil the Great and other great saints of the fourth century, Amphilochius early forsook the bustle of the world and withdrew to a cave where, as a solitary, he lived in asceticism for forty years. The episcopal throne in Iconium then fell empty, and Amphilochius was chosen in a wonderful way and consecrated as Bishop of Iconium. He was a marvellous shepherd and a great defender of the purity of the Orthodox faith, and took part in the Second Ecumenical Council in 381. He fought zealously against Macedonius, and against the Arians and the Eunomians. He personally begged Theodosius the Great to drive the Arians out of every city in the Empire, but the Emperor did not comply with his request. After a few days, Amphilochius came before the Emperor again. When the bishop was taken into the presence-chamber, the Emperor was sitting on his throne with his son Arcadius, whom he had taken as co-Emperor, sitting at his right hand. Entering the room, Amphilochius did reverence to Theodosius, but ignored Arcadius as though he were not there. Infuriated by this, the Emperor Theodosius commanded that Amphilochius be instantly driven from court. The saint then said to the Emperor: 'Do you see, 0 Emperor, how you do not tolerate a slight paid to your son? In the same way, God the Father does not tolerate dishonour paid to His Son, turning with loathing from those who blaspheme against Him, and being angered at that accursed Arian heresy.' Hearing this, the Emperor understood the reason for Amphilochius's seeming disrespect towards his son, and marvelled at his wisdom and daring. Among many other works, Amphilochius wrote several books on the Faith. He entered into rest in 395 in great old age, and went to immortal life." (Prologue)   Saint Amphilocus was a kinsman of St Gregory the Theologian: his father's sister Nonna (August 5) was St Gregory's mother. Amphilocus himself was a lifelong friend of all three of the great Cappadocian Fathers: Sts Basil, Gregory the Theologian and Gregory of Nyssa.

By late 1628, the Habsburgs appeared supreme. The Danes were on the ropes, and all of the Empire was firmly in the grip of Wallenstein. But appearances were deceptive. The Emperor's triumph was assured, but his cousins were having less luck. Spanish problems in North Italy demanded a united Habsburg response. Spain needed all the help it could get in its Dutch War, but it was the North Italian front, specifically in Mantua, that the Spanish seemed most invested.Wallenstein was even petitioned. He could spare some men, right? Well, actually, keeping the German peace was a difficult enough task, and the Emperor didn't make it any easier! Flush with victory, Emperor Ferdinand issued the Edict of Restitution, a document so ill-timed and contentious, it changed everything. The Empire had soured on the Emperor and his trusty generalissimo. The Edict was the final straw. By summer 1630, Wallenstein was dismissed to appease Vienna's court, just as Germany was fracturing internally, and a new threat appeared on the scene. It was the King of Sweden, and Wallenstein had been warning of his arrival for some time. Worse, he was backed by French money, and a France newly freed from its own domestic troubles.

In recent days, there has been a strategic realignment with potentially earth-shaking implications. Xi Jinping, the murderous dictator who leads the Chinese Communist Party, has effectively become the emperor of China. And Joe Biden has effectively become his most important vassal. These new roles were evident in even the highly selective renderings of the discussion during the two men's over three-hour-long virtual summit earlier this week. Xi was domineering and bullying; Biden was the supplicant and accommodating. Now, Emperor Xi has summoned the U.S. president to come to Beijing for next February's Olympics. If he attends what are properly described as the Genocide Games, it will rival Hitler's 1936 Berlin Olympiad for legitimating and emboldening freedom's foes. We have a treaty obligation to punish, not reward, genocide. America and its president must stand up to Xi Jinping, not kow-tow before him. This is Frank Gaffney.

"Saint Romanus was a deacon and exorcist in the Church of Caesarea in Palestine. He happened to be at Antioch in 303 when the Emperor Diocletian's edicts for the general persecution of Christians were published. He could not bear to see so many Christian men, women and children denying their faith in the true God for fear of suffering. As they went to sacrifice to the idols, he ran up, consumed with zeal for righteousness, crying shame on them with a loud voice. He was immediately arrested and brought before the city Prefect. He faced interrogation boldly and to prove the stupidity of the pagan cult, he asked for a child to be brought in, taken at random from the crowd in the public square. Romanus enquired of the lad whether it was more sensible to worship the one and only God and Creator of the world, or the many gods of the pagans. Showing himself wiser than the pagans, the child unhesitatingly decided for the God of the Christians. The Prefect flew into a rage at being made to look ridiculous and ordered the young confessor to be put to the torture straight away in the presence of his mother. The child endured the torments without flinching but told his mother he was thirsty and wanted a drink. '0 my dear son', the admirable woman answered, 'do not drink corruptible and temporal water, but keep up your courage so as to drink living and eternal water in the Kingdom of God!' The child was beheaded, and Saint Romanus was condemned to be burnt to death. He welcomed the sentence joyfully, and with a shining face was led unresistingly to the stake. Since the Emperor was in the city, the executioners awaited his decision before lighting the fire and the valiant Martyr exclaimed at the delay, 'Where is the fire that is prepared for me?' But the execution was stayed so that he could be brought before the Emperor in person. Aware that Christians rejoice over the death of a Martyr as the entrance to everlasting life, the tyrant wanted to increase the suffering of Christ's athlete by delaying the moment of deliverance. He ordered the executioners to tear out his tongue, which Romanus freely offered, and he miraculously went on praising God and encouraging the faithful after it was cut away. After this torment, he was imprisoned for a long time in chains until the Emperor's birthday. This was celebrated all over the Empire and a general release of prisoners was customary. But Romanus was not freed; with his feet crushed in the stocks, he was secretly strangled in his dungeon and thus received the adornment of martyrdom, as he had desired."(Synaxarion)

Kenshi and the Emerald Magistrates traveled through the tunnels beneath Otosan Uchi with their captive in tow. Little did they know, their prisoner had been putting out secret messages to the saboteurs lying in wait in the caves. When Kenshi and his crew came to an especially narrow corridor, the saboteurs attacked, coming at them from both sides. A battle ensued, taking lives from both sides, including the life of Kitsuki Mayumi. Having failed multiple attempts at routing his attackers, and realizing that he was outclassed, Kenshi surrendered. Meanwhile, exiled from the Emperor's court, Buro decided to return to the Scorpion embassy to gather his things. Upon arriving, he found that a group of Crane courtiers had come to the embassy the night before to present gifts to the heroes of Rokugan: Buro, Tomo, Akari, and Kenshi. The gifts were sent by Doji Shizue, a powerful member of the Crane clan who seemed eager to speak with the party. Buro collected these gifts along with his other belongings and hopped into the tunnels beneath the embassy, hoping to find his friends.Below his room, Buro found a man seemingly guarding the entrance into the caves. The man would not let Buro pass, so the shugenja melded into the stone of the cavern walls and reappeared in an empty chamber. Here, he asked for assistance from the Earth kami, hoping they could lend clues which would help him reunite with his allies.Buro was shocked to discover that the kami who dwelt here were extremely unhappy. They told him that treachery of the highest caliber was being bred in these caves, and that a weapon to destroy the kami was being housed within. A tremor then ran through the caverns, collapsing many tunnels which had fallen into disrepair.Worried about Kenshi, Tomo, Yoshi, and Akari, Buro rushed to find his friends in the labyrinth of stone. He used everything he could think of to search for them, only to eventually collapse from exhaustion. In one of the many darkened chambers, Buro laid down to rest.Somewhere deep in the caves, Tomo awoke from his sleep to see Kenshi and the magistrates being put into stockades beside him. The two friends reunited, and shared what they knew about what was going on. At that time, Akari revealed that she had been listening to the saboteurs go over their plans down the hall.The saboteurs were to lie in wait beneath the city until the command was given to strike. Then they would infiltrate the Forbidden City; one group would secure the perimeter, and a second group would gather hostages. Together, they would hold the city until relieved by Shoju and his forces. The saboteurs were being led by two men. One named Aramoro, and another named Sairento.At that moment, a commotion broke out, and scouts informed the one named Aramoro that a large group of armed samurai have attacked their patrols. Aramoro took a contingent warriors and went off to quell these attacks, leaving Sairento behind to hold down their operations.After Aramoro and his forces departed, the saboteurs guarding the captives were ambushed. Appearing out of the shadows was Tsuruchi and his Wasp samurai. Key in hand, he rescued Tomo, Kenshi, Akari, and the Emerald Magistrates, and armed them with their confiscated equipment. Tsuruchi explained that it was merely a diversion, and that they lacked the manpower to withstand an all out assault. They had to leave now.Tomo, Kenshi, and Akari were left with an impossible decision: Yoshi's armor was still unaccounted for. Do they face the saboteurs and reclaim the spirit of the Martyr Monk, or do they escape now while the enemy is distracted? With heavy hearts, the samurai decided to abandon the caves, and leave the armor to its fate.CreditsArt by Dylon MunozMusicRokugan Theme by Brandon SpainThe Gaijin's Journey by Podcast of the Five RingsNighttime Antics by Podcast of the Five RingsKitsune Spirit by Podcast of the Five RingsDark Reckoning by Podcast of the Five RingsTreehouse by Podcast of the Five RingsFight Dojo 1 by Brandon SpainCave Drips by Everythingsounds https://freesound.org/people/everythingsounds/sounds/199515/

In the wake of the French Revolution, Napoleon Bonaparte, First Consul of France, and Pope Pius VII shared a common goal: to reconcile the Catholic church with the French state. But while they were able to work together initially, formalizing a Concordat in 1801, relations between them rapidly deteriorated. In 1809, Napoleon ordered the Pope's arrest. Dr. Ambrogio Caiani, Senior Lecturer in Modern History at the University of Kent, in his book, To Kidnap a Pope: Napoleon and Pius VII (Yale University Press, 2021), provides a pioneering account of the tempestuous relationship between the emperor and his most unyielding opponent.

But what do we know about this unit's origins? How did this powerful force become protectors of the Emperor and his household? What other functions did they serve? And how did they differ from the standard Roman legions in their structure?To talk through the rise of the Praetorian Guard, with a specific focus on the reigns of Augustus and Tiberius, Tristan caught up with historian Lindsay Powell at Fishbourne Roman Palace in West Sussex.

The transnational criminal organization that is the Chinese Communist Party has just effectively elevated its top Mafioso to the status of emperor. That's not good for the people of China or anybody else. The so-called Sixth Party Plenum has rubber-stamped current dictator-for-life Xi Jinping's status as equivalent to history's most monstrous and murderous thug, CCP founder Mao Tse-tung. And it endorsed Xi's agenda of “making China strong.” In accordance with “Xi Jinping Thought” and his “China Dream,” that means acquiring and exercising the capability to dominate the planet and, in the process, destroy the United States and the rest of what's left of the Free World. Will we confront and counter Emperor Xi in time? Not if it's up to a man aptly described as our Manchurian president, Joe Biden. So, it better not be left up to him. This is Frank Gaffney.

If I met up with you on one of your favorite walks, where is it and what might I notice about you?Sue smiles!Sue's valley makes she feel so good, to be in her own skinSue strolls to be where she is instead of fast walking to get somewhereSue is a wanderer, taking everything in, open to seeing what she needs to noticeSue is a stopper and a looker and a listenerSue's intention is to be very presentHost: Sue's blog posts with her photography comes from a place of slowing down, pausing and being aware.6:28 to 20:05       A Bit of Back Story. Before we get to your manifesto and your book, entitled Quiet Disruptors: Creating Change Without Shouting, I'd like to know a bit about how you coined the term “Quiet Disruptor” in 2018. Would you share with us how that came about and what you discovered about yourself in that process.A beautiful defining moment that Sue didn't see comingSue had gone through challenging times professionally and personally and not expecting beauty to emergeSue's approach (how can we do this differently) is not traditional and may make folks uncomfortable, like The Emperor's Clothes storyHealth, family, and Sue's own purpose, direction and income challenges together created a constellation of taxing and trying times and then Sue's diagnosis of breast cancerOut of all of this acute chaos, in her recovery time Sue was exploring “Now what?”Sue joined an online community with Bernadette Jiwa and coined “Quiet Disruptor” as a means of introducing herself with honesty but without dramaAlso reading David Hieatt and The DO Lectures As well as Susan Cane and her Quiet Power book  Being a Quiet Disruptor is Sue's life - in a quiet voiceAfter Sue began using this phrase she was stunned by how much people were drawn to it and wanted to use it as well: I can be a change-maker my own way; I feel seen and heard. Quiet Disruptor changes how people perceive themselves because change is theirs to say and do - call out the status quo, etc. but differentlyNow the “do” happens: as a way of changing the conversation for folks Sue wrote a Manifesto to enable those who want to be seen and heard to have a way to quietly disruptSue was seeing that the voices of the Quiet Disruptors were experiencing their time having come as a collective connective, to say, do, explore and createOne person can no longer be The HeroOrganizations will have to be on the forefront of the global changeHost: an unrealistic burden to expect The One to have the answers, especially when imposed by society. If The One has no answers or, not the right answers they might push, shove, shout or masqueradeSue is extending a welcome to The OthersCome on board and work together, all voices are to be heard    20:05 to 36:30       Manifesto for Quiet DisruptorsThe word Manifesto is strong, a public declaration of intention, of design. Would you give us the opportunity to hear your Manifesto.Sue reads her Manifesto as an advocate for Quiet DisruptorsWe need Quiet Disruptors and here's why.Host: There is so much in the invitation to come along. People drawn like filings to a magnet. Sue named qualities or attributes shared by the Quiet Disruptors: stubborn courage, do work quietly and insistently. Question: How might we notice change makers among us or even notice if we could be a change maker?Those who have read Sue's book and claim the Quiet Disruptor label for themselves, are self-identifyingBeing seen and heard is keySue uses tree and fruit as metaphor to explain how to notice the others.The Others have certain characteristics which we recognize: thoughtfully curious, how they are in the world, with others, those who ask the questions, delve deeper, join the dots, see the bigger picture, expression of creativity, the effect on othersHost: I imagine you have people and situations in mind. Question: would you share a few who are already carrying on as a Quiet Disruptors.The book highlights who is already out there - some well known, some not so well known - making courageous connectionsOne example: Dr. Rachel Naomi Remen, MD:  as a practicing physician could see her patients in a way colleagues could not. Also saw that her colleagues were unseen and unheard and became protectively hardened. Remen shifted this experience and radically changed clinical practice in the United StatesHost: One woman begins the shift and then change happens over the course of time. Similarly in the legal profession. Litigators who learned to tell their own stories - doing an archeological dig on themselves - were better able to tell their clients' stories. Being seen and being heard goes toward our understanding and being understood.So often people struggle to listen deeplyThe traditional model is waiting to get the next word inCultivating your curiosity has more value in the questionsWe are at a space of asking deeper questionsQuestion: Let's assume you might have to work with or encounter someone who is not so agreeable to this notion of disrupting quietly, how would you suggest working with folks like that to get them to see the necessity of hopeful, quiet change?Here we are, at the end of the road but not the journey.

The author, Marie-Henri Beyle, is better known by his pen name “Stendhal.” He was born in 1783 in the city of Grenoble in southeastern France. His mother passed away before he turned eight. After his mother's death, his upbringing was severe. It caused him to develop a gloomy personality. He grew to resent his lawyer father and his strict tutor, a Jesuit-priest. Fortunately, his salvation was his grandfather, who was kind and loving towards him. He read voraciously in his grandfather's library. Stendhal went to Paris In 1799, after Napoléon Bonaparte launched the Coup of 18 Brumaire. In Paris, under his cousin's recommendation, he first joined the army and subsequently worked at the administrative court. He also took part in the Napoleonic wars as the Emperor's messenger. After Napoléon's abdication in 1814, Stendhal lost his job and fell into significant debt. He quit France for Italy and began eking out his living as a writer. In this period, he produced a wide range of works, including essays, short stories, novels, novella, non-fiction, and travel books. He conceived The Red and the Black, his magnum opus, in 1829. When the novel was eventually published the following year, it was received with indifference by the literary world. Of the first edition, only 750 copies were printed, and sales were sluggish. Nonetheless, Stendhal had profound confidence in his work. He once predicted that it would be 1880 before people would start to read and accept the novel and 1935 before the public would acknowledge its significance. True to his words, The Red and the Black received acclaim only half a century after its original imprint. Émile Zola, the French realist writer, referred to Stendhal as “one of our masters.” Leo Tolstoy, the eminent Russian author, praised Stendhal's techniques of psychological description. André Gide, the Nobel laureate, described The Red and the Black as ahead of its time. He commented that it was a novel for twentieth-century readers. Although he was largely overlooked during his lifetime, thanks to The Red and the Black, Stendhal has subsequently become a renowned literary figure. Over the two centuries since its publication, the novel has been globally ranked among many readers' favorite works, especially so among younger readers.

I was twenty years old when Hamida Bano, the Padshah Begum, supreme wife of the Emperor, entrusted her infant prince to my arms before fleeing across the Thar desert. Her opium-addled husband, steeped in the luxury of his harem, had no defense against Sher Shah Suri's advancing armies, which squeezed Agra like a coal between tongs. The Sur Empire then settled its traitorous haunches on North India, and Hamida Bano, trailing her husband's camel, trekked across the blistering desert, while I, still a young concubine, nursed the boy who would inherit the throne.

Fan of the show? https://www.patreon.com/newleftradio (Support us on Patreon)! The status quo may seem permanent and unchangeable but as David Potter tells us, there are significant disruptions throughout modern history that have fundamentally changed the world — sometimes seemingly overnight. What can we learn from our past in making the world anew? How can movements breakthrough? Most importantly, are disruptive movements doomed to becoming centrist? About Disruption: Why Things Change How do things change? The question is critical to the historical study of any era but it is also a profoundly important issue today as western democracies find the fundamental tenets of their implicit social contract facing extreme challenges from forces espousing ideas that once flourished only on the outskirts of society. This books argues that radical change always begins with ideas that took shape on the fringes. Throughout time the "mainstream" has been inherently conservative, allowing for incremental change but essentially dedicated to preserving its own power structures as the dominant ideology justifies existing relationships. In this tour of radical change across Western history, David Potter will show how ideologies that develop in opposition or reaction to those supporting the status quo are employed to effect profound changes in political structures that will in turn alter the way that social relations are constructed. Not all radical groups are the same, and all the groups that the book will explore take advantage of challenges that have already shaken the social order. They take advantage of mistakes that have challenged belief in the competence of existing institutions to be effective. It is the particular combination of an alternative ideological system and a period of community distress that are necessary conditions for radical changes in direction. The historical disruptions chronicled in this book-the rise of Christianity, rise of Islam, Protestant reformations, Age of Revolution (American and French), and Bolshevism and Nazism--will help readers understand when the preconditions exist for radical changes in the social and political order. As Disruption demonstrates, not all radical change follows paths that its original proponents might have predicted. An epilogue helps situate contemporary disruptions, from the rise of Trump and Brexit to the social and political consequences of technological change, in the wider historical forces surveyed by the book. https://global.oup.com/academic/product/disruption-9780197518823?cc=ca&lang=en&# (Buy the book here) About David Potter David Potter is Francis W.

Today's episode is a Monday Morning Musing with me, Heather Brockbank Miller. This is a short 10 minute episode on Hans Christian Andersen's rough beginnings. Did you know Hans Christian Andersen had four failed career attempts, and a horrible experience in school? These included: three failed apprenticeships, a dead end in the theater, and a very rough experience in school owing to the fact that he had a cruel and disparaging teacher. He experienced a deep depression, and almost gave up on writing! In this musing I recommend a few short stories of his like "The Tallow Candle", "The Emperor's New Clothes", "The Snow Queen", "The Ugly Duckling", and "The Little Mermaid." I pose a few questions to you listener that will hopefully inspire you to read Hans Christian Andersen and keep trying in all aspects of your life despite any failures. If Hans can do it, so can you! Support the show (http://www.mettlebrain.com/contact-1)

Because his noble Samurai army aren't just fighting the Emperor's gun-wielding forces. They're fighting progress itself. And that's a battle they cannot win.    But were the Samurai really a class of elite martial artists, driven by unbreakable codes of chivalry and loyalty?

A pagan couple, Cleitophon and Leucippe, who lived in Emesa in the reign of the Emperor Decius, were grieved that they were unable to have children. One day a monk named Onuphrius came to their door seeking alms to give to the poor, and seeing Leucippe's downcast face, asked her what was wrong. When she replied that she was barren, Onuphrius told her that this was by God's providence, to prevent their child from being given over to idolatry, and that if they accepted Christ she would bear a child. Leucippe was baptized into the Faith and bore a son not long after, which in turn brought her husband to faith in Christ. The son was named Galaction in baptism.   Years later, Galaction's father, now widowed, decided that Galaction should marry a pagan maiden named Episteme. Galaction married out of obedience, but would not approach Episteme's bed since she was a pagan. In time, he convinced her of the truth of the Faith and baptised her himself. Not long after she was told in a dream of the glory that awaits those who consecrate themselves wholly to God. When she told her husband of the dream, they both resolved to remain in virginity, settling in separate monastic communities near to one another.   In one of the Emperor's persecutions of Christians, Galaction was seized by imperial soldiers and taken away to be killed. Episteme, told in a vision of his arrest, asked the blessing of her abbess to join him in martyrdom. Receiving it, she hurried to Galaction's place of imprisonment, boldly announced her faith in Christ, and after many tortures and humiliations husband and wife were beheaded together.
