Paint your faith

My trip Milan landed me to a small yet beautiful church called Chiesa di San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore, located at Corso Magenta 15. It was on number #1 of my to do list in Milan. But I went there the second day. I am so thankful, I made the time to go there. The small church was filled with paintings of faith.


Some of my favourites were the beheaded of Paul, the first sin, and Noah. I also took a replica of the last supper since I couldnot get the ticket to see the original painting.

Richard Dawkins

The word became flesh.

I came across interesting quotes by Richard Dawkins for two days in a row. I guess it’s healthy for our logic and faith to exercise our apologetics, which I have never felt the need for before. I challenge you to explain your christian faith without using christian keywords to people who do not know that you are a believer. Do not use words like: Christian, Christ, Jesus, God, The Bible or any other keywords. I did that yesterday. Boy, it’s difficult.

Here’s an interesting reading of someone to make a contra point of Richard Dawkin’s notorious statement. If Richard Dawkins was right

It is my right not to be an atheist.

This is happening: That people start to say sorry to me whenever they mention christianity, christian, Christ, Jesus in the most blasphemous way they could possibly do.

But what got into my head is that probably I need to be more open minded, compasionate and have high acceptance of what they are doing. They have been living this way for the rest of their lives and suddenly come someone from asia who is religious and they feel that what they do (curse, swear, use certain symbolic words) is somehow misplaced, maybe because they see how my face turned into cold stone or how my pupil dilated or simply how my jaw dropped. I’m serious, sometimes these european people, oh gosh, how to put it into words, they are horrendously heartless. It is your right to be an atheist. But remember, it is my right also to be religious. So next time you see me reacting like J.S. Park below, be in mind that we have the same equal rights.

down the via dolorosa, my God…
