|Interrogating Blessed Edward & St. Nicholas Owen|
You remember the Gunpowder Plot, right?
Remember remember the fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder, treason
Should ever be forgot...
It turns out that our Papist friend Edward was a good friend of Guy Fawkes, going all the way back to childhood. Friendship alone doesn't mean that Edward wanted to blow up the Parliament, but try telling that to a panicked public when you are in fact still guilty of the capital crime of priesthood.
In the woods, we return to reason and faith... I become a transparent eyeball; I am nothing; I see all; the currents of the Universal Being circulate through me; I am part and parcel of God. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
