FULL MOON and more!

If you’re out and about this week, don’t miss the chance to see one of the astronomical highlights of summer as a full moon rises this Thursday. Our satellite reaches its full phase on August 15, an event that’s popularly called the Full Sturgeon Moon. With it comes two chances on Thursday for North Americans to witness a spectacular sight of a full moon in twilight close to dawn or sunset.

“And there shall be signs in the sun, and the moon, and the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, because of the confusion of the roaring of the sea and the waves;” [Luke 21:25]

WE ARE GETTING CLOSER

Today coincidence or chance; the fact that the Traditional Catholic Church calendar celebrates August 15. Why? It is an exceptional Holy Day known as the Assumption of the body of the Mother of God.

Jesus Christ IS God, and the definition of Truth is… WHAT IS!

God, the Father the Creator, created her perfect because of the unique role His Will was for her.

Many believe in Jesus Christ but ignore His mother, God’s instrument in the incarnation of Christ. If she was good enough for Jesus, she is good enough for all of us. To neglect His mother; tantamount, to when the angels were created loving God yet challenged His will. How could a mere human creature be more magnificent than they? AND THEY FELL!

“He hath made the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down.”

[Psalms 103:19]

“Who is she that cometh forth as the morning rising, fair as the moon, bright as the sun, terrible as an army set in array?”

[Canticles (Solomon) 6:9]

This is so very INTRIGUING!

Intriguing as in Fandango  Word Prompt.

Early this morning looking out into the heavens was so intriguing since the moon was still so very full, bright and beautiful.

This tidbit from the Old Farmers Almanac was also intriguing along with being informative about the full moon in March 2019.

THE FULL MOON AND EASTER
Did you know: Easter Sunday (in the Western Christian Church) ​​​​is celebrated on the first Sunday after the full Moon that occurs on or just after the vernal equinox.

Since the full Moon AND the vernal equinox both fall on March 20 this year (in North America, at least), you might expect that Easter Sunday would be on the following Sunday, March 24.

However, for simplicity’s sake, the Church set a fixed date for the equinox, March 21. Additionally, the Church does not rely on the date of the astronomical full Moon, but rather the ecclesiastical full Moon, which occurs on the 14th day of the ecclesiastical lunar month. The date of the ecclesiastical full Moon may fall one to two days before the astronomical full Moon. Therefore, because the first full Moon after March 21 doesn’t occur until April 19 this year, Easter Sunday 2019 falls on Sunday, April 21!

(This is not the first time the church’s “set” equinox and astronomy’s “moving” equinox affected Easter’s date; it last happened in 1981 and will happen again in 2038.)

Saturday Mix of the Natural/Supernatural

The shadow of the moon danced on the lake.

Morphing of the shadow as the light of the moon penetrated through branches; the reaching arms gracefully unveiling its ballet to a full moon.
A moon suspended high beyond its genius of design, a living greeting card.

The priest that morning at the sacrifice of the Mass, held the host high above his head, again a change; the bread of earth-penetrating God’s enlightenment is unveiling bread from heaven.
