No Holy Communion for the Sick, They Said

She wanted to receive Holy Communion. She was 88 years old…

The nurses avoided our questions, ignored us, and then finally told us you can’t come in. “She can’t have any visitors,” the disembodied cowardly voice crackled through the intercom…

… I lived in Romania for 15 years. I had been exposed to the spirit of a totalitarian regime… I was not going to back off…

I detected the familiar, sinister spirit of blind obedience to a soulless, state policy. I had to fulfill my sacred duty…

Rav Arora with Zuby

While I don’t agree with everything he says (like Zuby, I’m not into using substances to expand awareness) I found it refreshing to hear Rav Aorora having a Real Talk with Zuby.1Video version on Zuby’s Odysee channel.

“Narrative vs Truth” is a wide ranging talk touching on faith, science, psychology, censorship, travel, fascism, lockdown, psychedelics… and more.

Calm, sensible, thoughtful, humourous and with the integrity to acknowledge he got things wrong and the courage to adjust his perspective. Great to see in someone so young.

If we want a better future we would do well to support men like Rav.

And Zuby.
