A Scientific Analysis of Jesus Christ’s suffering and death

A scientific analysis of the suffering and death of Jesus Christ on Holy Thursday and Good Friday has been published in JAMA – The Journal of the American Medical Association, titled, “On the Physical Death of Jesus Christ.” Taking Jesus as a historical figure, William D. Edwards, MD, et al, analyze from a medical perspective circumstances leading up to and including his crucifixion with the intent to present “a medically and historically accurate account of the physical death of the one called Jesus Christ.”

Falvey has this article. It can also be found though a Google search.

Fireflies by Marilyn Kallet (see more)

In the dry summer field at nightfall,
fireflies rise like sparks.
Imagine the presence of ghosts
flickering, the ghosts of young friends,
your father nearest in the distance.
This time they carry no sorrow,
no remorse, their presence is so light.
Childhood comes to you,
memories of your street in lamplight,
holding those last moments before bed,
capturing lightning-bugs,
with a blossom of the hand
letting them go. Lightness returns,
an airy motion over the ground
you remember from Ring Around the Rosie.
If you stay, the fireflies become fireflies
again, not part of your stories,
as unaware of you as sleep, being
beautiful and quiet all around you.


HAVE A GREAT DAY!

If you have ideas for inclusion in The 8:30 or to Library News in general, you’re invited to send them to joanne.quinn@villanova.edu.
