Vote: Choose the Title of Taylor’s Novel about Saint George (Plus 200 Free Copies!)

My new fictional novel is aimed at Young Adults and it’s basically Princess Bride meets Lord of the Rings meets Evelyn Waugh’s Helena.

800px-Jost_Haller_-_Saint_George_slaying_the_dragon_Unterlinden_Museum_Colmar

Plot Synopsis

It’s a fantastical historical fiction novel about Saint George. His father, a Roman legionary and friend of Diocletian, died mysteriously. As persecution begins to rise, George and his sister are forced to flee their town in the East of the empire. They head toward Rome to find relatives among the Legion. They meet a Philistine giant along the way (St Christopher) and a young priest (St Nicholas) who help them along. 

Meanwhile, in Cyrene (North Africa) the governor’s daughter Sabra has become a priestess for a death cult feeding children to some dark apparition in the cave outside the city. In order to keep her from being sacrificed to the evil presence (a death that the tormented girl desires), he has her smuggled out of the city and taken to live with relatives in Rome.

I won’t give away the end, but there’s a big Satanic showdown…and George does end up slaying something like a dragon in the caves of Cyrene…

Contest: Name Taylor’s new Saint George novel and win

My new “young adult” novel about Saint George is getting closer to release! I want to hear from you about it.

800px-Jost_Haller_-_Saint_George_slaying_the_dragon_Unterlinden_Museum_Colmar

The book is my fictional retelling of a young (Saint) George and his journey to Rome with his companion (Saint) Christopher. It presents a supernatural world of relics, persecution, prayers, ascetics, and dark demonic powers. And yes, it does have a final battle between George and “the dragon” named Molech – but the ending will surprise you!

We still need help with the title. Please leave a comment below with name suggestions. A short line from the Bible would be great. Here are some examples from Revelation:

“And the great dragon was thrown down”

“That Ancient Serpent”

“The Deceiver of the Whole World”

“the dragon gave his power”

“And they worshiped the dragon”

“The Mouth of the dragon”

“Leviathan the fleeing serpent”

“Sons and Daughters to Molech” (Jer 32:35)

“The Children to Molech” (Leviticus 20)

“Kill This Dragon” (from Daniel)

Please leave a comment below with your title suggestions. Your suggestions don’t need to be biblical…just really, really cool.

We will limit the titles to the top 5 and then run a contest.

If we choose your novel title, you’ll get 3 free signed copies of the George novel and your name inside the book in the acknowledgements!

G.K. Chesterton on the Death of Pan and the Death of Christ

Did you know that the Roman god Pan was declared dead during the life of Christ? What GK Chersterton teaches us on the topic is important as we engage the growing neo-Pagan movement in the West…

PanandDaphnisMy twin daughters are studying Greek and Roman myth at their Catholic school Faustina Academy.

Now I understand that some Christians are concerned that teaching about the Greek gods will undermine the faith of Catholic kids. I once asked Fr. Stephen B. Reynolds pastor of the flagship parochial school at Saint Theresa’s Catholic Church in Sugar Land, Texas his thoughts about parents concerned over teaching Greek gods in Catholic schools.

He replied:

“Here at Saint Theresa’s we have a 100% success rate. So far, not one of our students have abandoned their Catholic Faith for the worship of Zeus or any of the Olympians.”

That’s both cheeky and true.

I’ve read Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey and Virgil’s Aeneid. I even took a Greco-Roman Mythology course at Texas A&M. So I feel like I know a little something about the old-school gods and goddesses. However, I’m learning more through my daughters. While having a daddy date with them at a coffee shop, I learned more about Pan and the Death of Pan. Remember? Pan is the god with goat legs who plays the pipes.

He is the god of nature, and according to the Roman pagans, he “died” during the life of Christ.

This fascinated me and so I did a little research.

According to the historian Plutarch (De defectu oraculorum) during the reign of Tiberius (A.D. 14–37), the news of Pan’s death was announced from the skies to a sailor named Thamus on his way to Italy by way of the island of Paxi.

A divine voice hailed him across the salt water, “Thamus, are you there? When you reach Palodes, take care to proclaim that the great god Pan is dead.” Thamus obeyed the voice and spread the news around Italy. Eusebius of Caesarea states that the Emperor Tiberius asked for a personal interview with the sailor Thamus to discern the meaning of this oracle (Eusebius, Praeparatio Evangelica, 5)

Eusebius notes that our Lord Jesus Christ rid the world of most the devils during His ministry and at His death. Since the “gods of the nations are demons” (Ps 96:5), it would seem that the demon representing Pan was banished from the earth.

Death of Pan according to GK Chesterton

GK-chesterton-philosopherG.K. Chesterton once wrote:

“It is said truly in a sense that Pan died because Christ was born. It is almost as true in another sense that men knew that Christ was born because Pan was already dead. A void was made by the vanishing world of the whole mythology of mankind, which would have asphyxiated like a vacuum if it had not been filled with theology.” (G.K. Chesterton, “The End of the World”, The Everlasting Man).

Pan was the god or demon of nature. Paganism, at its root is the worship of nature. Each of the gods in any pantheon (Hindu, Greek, Roman, Nordic, African) are personified elements of nature, such as rain, food growth, animal life, childbirth, or death. Although the god Pan was not the highest in the pantheon, he was nonetheless pan, the Greek word meaning “everything.” He represented the entire scope of nature.

It’s also worth noting here that the “look” of Pan is the “look” of the Devil. Satan is traditionally depicted as Pan. A horned head, goat legs, a tail, and cloven feet. Satan’s connection to music is further suggested by Pan’s ubiquitous use of the panpipes.

We should not be surprised, then, that the Neo-Pagan movement of our time (primarily in the form of Wicca) chiefly worships a male deity called the “Horned God” who is the consort of the female deity “Mother Goddess.” The Horned God is non-other than Pan of old or the horned Baphomet of Freemasonry. He is the god of all nature.

In the new age or neo-pagan worldview, the natural universe is god. Everything is God. Nature is god. The environment is god. We are god. This is the doctrine of pantheism. The Neo-Pagan movement seeks to overcome the Christian era and the reign of Christ the King and return the place of Pan. I suspect that in the next 100 years, the battle will not be between theists and atheists, it will be between Christians and pantheists.

Question: Had you heard of the “death of Pan”? Do you have anyone in your family that believes that nature or “the universe” is God? You can leave a comment by clicking here.

#051: The Price of Your Anger [Podcast]

My goal this week is to uncover the price of your anger. You know, anger is one of the seven deadly sins. I recently had an epiphany about my own anger and how it effects my life. I’m going to share two recent examples of anger in my life and how I’m learning to overcome it.

#050: The Seven Sorrows of Mary are the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit [Podcast]

The Seven Sorrows of Mary are one of the most fruitful topics of mental prayer. On Fridays especially, the Seven Sorrows are a way to better contemplate the Divine Mercy of God.

Here’s a video of me explaining how the Seven Sorrows relate to the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit:

If you don’t see the video in you, you can watch it here.

And here’s the podcast version:

Play

It is a tradition for Catholics to say daily one Our Father and seven Hail Mary for each.

our-lady-of-the-seven-sorrows

  1. The Prophecy of Simeon. (Luke 2:34-35)
  2. The Flight into Egypt. (Matthew 2:13)
  3. The Loss of the Child Jesus in the Temple. (Luke 2:43-45)
  4. Mary Meets Jesus on the Way to Calvary. (Luke 23:26)
  5. Jesus Dies on the Cross. (John 19:25)
  6. Mary Receives the Body of Jesus in Her Arms. (Matthew 27:57-59)
  7. The Body of Jesus is Placed in the Tomb. (John 19:40-42)

The Seven Sorrows of Mary also correspond to the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit:

  1. The Prophecy of Simeon – Fear of the Lord (Mary is explicitly reminded of her sorrowful vocation: “a sword shall pierced thy soul”)
  2. The Flight into Egypt – Piety (Mary fulfills her duties toward Joseph and Jesus in a foreign land)
  3. The Loss of the Child Jesus in the Temple – Knowledge (Mary’s knowledge of Christ’s identity as the Son of God)
  4. Mary Meets Jesus on the Way to Calvary – Fortitude (Mary’s strength in seeing Christ in His Passion)
  5. Jesus Dies on the Cross – Counsel (Mary is the spiritual guide and counselor for all who seek her crucified Son)
  6. Mary Receives the Body of Jesus in Her Arms – Understanding (As Mary holds the dead body of her Son, she perceives His coming resurrection)
  7. The Body of Jesus is Placed in the Tomb – Wisdom (Christ is hidden but Mary’s soul continues to see Christ and communicate with Him)

Since Mary is the Spouse of the Holy Spirit, this should come as no surprise to us.

Poll: Are the Sorrowful Mysteries Your Hardest Rosary Mysteries?

I was at a baseball game yesterday with some Catholic friends.* The Texas Rangers clobbered the Atlanta Braves. Meanwhile between pitches we were discussing Our Lady of Guadalupe, the Rosary, and which order is more Marian (Franciscan vs Dominican).

And a question came up:

Which set of mysteries of the Rosary is the most difficult for you to pray?

  1. Mysteries of RosaryJoyful Mysteries
  2. Luminous Mysteries (Yes, the Luminous Mysteries are not officially part of the divinely revealed Rosary. More info. Yet a Sainted Pope proposed and endorsed them. So I’m including them.)
  3. Sorrowful Mysteries
  4. Glorious Mysteries

Two of us (Alex and myself) think the Sorrowful Mysteries are the most difficult. The other two guys (Andy and Brandon) answered “Glorious.”

Why “Sorrowful”?

I find the Sorrowful Mysteries the most difficult because it is a challenge for me to think of Christ in so much agony. It hurts. The first three (agony in garden, scourging at pillar, and crowning with thorns) are somehow more difficult than the last two (carrying the cross, and death on the cross).

On Tuesdays and Fridays when our family prays the Sorrowful Mysteries, I’m just not as excited. During Lent, I like them, but at other times it’s difficult for me. It’s like watching Mel Gibson’s Passion of the Christ on repeat. Yes, it’s good for you. But it’s painful to watch someone you love suffer.

Why “Glorious”?

The guys who answered Glorious Mysteries explained that these mysteries were the most abstract to imagine. These mysteries are particularly difficult to picture in the mind.

For example, how to imagine the Ascension? Christ floating on a cloud? How to you imagine the Coronation of Mary?

I have no problem with these and I’ve previously written a blog post on how to imagine these five glorious mysteries here.

Poll: Which are the most difficult mysteries of the Rosary for you to pray:

It struck me that others might have different input. So let’s take a poll. If you’re an email subscriber (or even if you aren’t), tell us which Rosary is the most difficult or foreign to you:

#049: 6 Obstacles in Your Life (How to Conquer Them) [Podcast]

My goal this week is to talk about obstacles in your life. I recently read a great article on LifeHacker.com titled “Six Obstacles That Hinder Your Creative Projects” by Courtney Seiter.

In our Episode 12, “Why You Should be More Creative”, we discussed the theology of being creative. Today we wrestle with the reasons we do not accomplish our big dreams in life. This is a follow up to that episode, so if you haven’t listened to Episode 12 “Why You Should be More Creative”, you should listen to it after you listen to this one.

Girls can do anything!
