PETITION AGAINST YOUR PROPOSED AUCTION OF OUR ANCESTRAL LEGACY – By Geb Ra El

PETITION AGAINST YOUR PROPOSED AUCTION OF OUR ANCESTRAL LEGACY:

Dear Rastalive Wire:

Please, join me to petition and condemn a proposed auction of a very ancient Benin Art that was stolen from Benin Kingdom. The sculpture is that of Queen Idia, the mother of Oba Esigie, the Benin monarch who was reigning when Prince Ohime, (later vernacularised as “Chime”) left the Benin empire to establish Onitsha and other kingdoms in mid-Western and Eastern Nigeria. Prince Ohime and Oba Esigie were siblings!

The Moorish Saints of Europe: Cosmas and Damian the Physicians

Saints Cosmas and Damian

A Hymn of Praise

The Church glorifies the miracle-working physicians,
Shining stars that shine with the Lord,
St. Cosmas and St. Damian,
Two Christians, wondrous giants.
Theodotia was the mother of these sons;
She nourished these giants.
The glorious brothers fulfilled the law,
And by their mercy pleased Christ.
They pleased Christ, the Merciful One,
The greatest Unmercenary Physician.
