Crossed The Tiber

An Evangelical Converts to Catholicism

My Photo
Name:
Location: Pennsylvania, United States

I was born into the Catholic faith. At 14, I was "born again" and found Jesus personally but lost His Church. After thirty years as an evangelical protestant, I have come full circle to find that He has been there all the time, in the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. I wish others to find the beauty and truth of the Catholic faith as I have found.

I just wish we could show the hummingbirds more clearly. I want others to enjoy them as much as we do.

I'd love to watch your hummingbirds. You guys aren't thinking about converting to Baha'i, are you? Just kidding. :)

وثلاثين بلداً، وهم يمثّـلون أصولاً دينية مختلفة وينتمون إلى أجناس وأعراق وشعوب وقبائل وجنسيات متعددة. أما الدين البهائي فمعترف به رسمياً في العديد من الدول، ومُمثّـل تمثيلاً غير حكومي في هيئة الأمم المتحدة والأوساط الدولية العلمية والاقتصادية

Oh hummingbird, mankind was waiting for you to come flying along.
Heavenly songbird, we were so wrong. We've harmed you.
Oh hummingbird, lend us your wings. Let us soar in the atmosphere of Abha.
Lift us up to the heaven of holiness, oh source of our being, oh hummingbird.

Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away. Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.
In you I've found a fragrance. I'll love you 'til I die.
I just love you, love you, love you. I don't even know the reason why.
Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away. Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.
The sweetness of your nectar has drawn me like a fly.
I just love you, love you, love you. I don't even know the reason why. Now,
Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away. Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.

Haven't you noticed the days somehow keep getting longer?
And the spirit voices whisper in us all.
Haven't you noticed the rays? The spirit sun in stronger
And a new day is dawning for us all.

Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away. Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.
Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away. Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.
The draught of understanding; wisdom, peace and love is ours.
Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away. Hummingbird don't fly away, fly away.

Whatever happened to Seals & Croft?

Ah yes Seals and Croft,I loved the mandolin in Summer Breeze but don't recall the Hummingbird song that you and PA referenced. Selective memory deficits I have.

When I read those lyrics I couldn't help thinking they got their lyrics from "Shoefly don't bother me, Shoefly don't bother me."

I heard they retired to some exotic Island .

I want to retire to some exotic island... : (

No, I'd settle for a parcel of land by the Holy Family Shrine, but...dream on.

I read further, one of them is a coffee farmer in Costa Rica, the other raises Arabian horses in Texas. They both are generous with their time and talents to relief efforts through faith based organizations.

There is a shrine of Padre Pio not far from us that may start to build community housing, condos etc on their acreage. unfortunately they are not approved by the diocese to celebrate Mass there. If they did, we would seriously consider moving.
As you may have noted from the live tibercam, Emmaus is quite the noisy little hamlet!

My personal favorite is the Black chinned hummingbird. Most see the Ruby throated hummingbird though; it's the biggest widespread.
