Cruciatus in Crucem

From Battlefield Vacations, Edinburgh:

On the film “Braveheart” —

If you’ve ever wondered about what exactly “drawn and quartered” means, there’s a good demonstration at the end.

From my journal note of June 28, 2002:
Page 162 of the May 2002 issue of Vanity Fair Magazine —


Head White House speechwriter —

God’s Grandeur and Other Poems, by Gerard Manley Hopkins (Dover)

“In the last two weeks, I’ve been returning to Hopkins.  Even in the ‘world’s wildfire,” he asserts that

‘this Jack, joke, poor potsherd, patch, matchwood, immortal diamond,
Is immortal diamond.’

A comfort.”

“Cruciatus in crucem.”
— President Jed Bartlet, The West Wing  (Episode 2.22 , “Two Cathedrals,”
original airdate May 16, 2001, 9:00 PM EST)
For the Latin meaning of this phrase, see
Quarreling with God.
For the complete script of this episode, see
Two Cathedrals.

  1. The simplicity that is in Christ is GOOD NEWS! There is no condemnation for those that trust in Jesus.  Turn away from sin and unfaithfulness and put your trust in Jesus Christ. When He died on the cross, He took the punishment for all our sins so that you would be saved from God’s wrath. It is not His will that you go to Hell. Then Jesus rose from the dead, defeating death. Confess your sins to God, put your faith in the Savior, and you will pass from death into eternal life.  I invite you to learn more about the simplicity in Christ:  http://geocities.com/neuroskull/gift.html
