My life is with my brother. — St. Anthony the Great (via thelasttruerebellion)
A brother came to see Abba Poemen and said to him, “Abba, I have many thoughts and they put me in danger.” The old man (Abba Poemen) led him outside and said to him, “Expand your chest and do not breathe in.” He said, “I cannot do that.” The old man said to him, “If you cannot do that, no more can you prevent evil thoughts from arising, but you can resist them.” — Sayings of the Desert Fathers (via thelasttruerebellion)
Do not judge yourself, but live with someone who knows how to behave properly. — Abba Poemen (Sayings of the Desert Fathers)

"Your circulatory system, from the aorta to arteries to arterioles to capillaries and back up the venous side form a similar continuum. They start off massive and branch and branch again, becoming smaller with each branching until they become so narrow in your capillaries that the red blood cells slowly flow through them single file just in order to fit. The mechanism of how your blood vessels branch is fractal in nature. Physiologically speaking your cells depend on oxygen, without it they die and if enough of them die, you die. In order to effectively oxygenate your tissues your circulatory system has to perform an impressive feat of dimensional architecture. Like the Koch Curve, packing infinite surface area into a finite space, your circulatory system utilizes fractal geometry through branching so that no cell in your body is never more than 3 or 4 cells away from a blood cell. And the amazing thing about this feat is that your blood vessels and blood take up very little space: no more than around 5% of your body!"

The Church of Saint Parvirius opened its doors to all the citizens of Gaza. 

#Gaza orthodox church is hosting 800 people who escaped the bombing of Shejaiya & offered Iftar. 

Beautiful.
