BOOK CORNER WITH DR. NEWMAN | 04
“The Boy, the Mole, the Fox, and the Horse” by Charlie Mackesy
This May, I am rereading the Charley Mackesy's book The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse. Charlie Macksey has been a cartoonist for The Spectator and is a renowned illustrator and warrior for social change. His simple and whimsical story takes us on a springtime journey with four friends who ponder and consider life's big questions. The ink drawings and illustrations are reminiscent of a child's fable but are ripe with philosophy, wisdom and wanderlust. The boy is full of questions, mole is looking for cake. The fox is mostly silent, because life has been hard for him. The horse is the biggest thing the friends have seen, but he is the gentlest. "When have you been at your strongest?" asked the boy. "When I have dared to show my weakness." "Asking for help isn't giving up." said the horse. "It's refusing to give up." Mackey states that he has crafted this book for everyone, whether you are eighty or eight. I hope the book encourages readers to be kind to themselves and take some advice straight from the horse's mouth. Happy reading!

ARCHBISHOP MOR CASSIANUS: AFTERLIFE, ENERGY, MEDITATION | 05
Archbishop Mor Cassianus: Afterlife, Energy, Meditation, and Hesychasm
We were honored to interview Archbishop Mor Cassianus Yuhanon Lewis at Saint Sophia Syriac Orthodox Cathedral, located at 1493 Indianola Ave., Columbus, Ohio 43201. Archbishop runs a soup kitchen and crisis center providing 3,500 to 4,000 home cooked meals per month. Ever since he was a little boy, in St. Charles, Missouri, he felt called to serve God and became an altar boy as soon as he was old enough to be one. As he matured, he decided to start a family and serve in the US Navy. The calling to serve God never stopped though and it became stronger in his mid-thirties. This is when he went through a divorce, left the military, and became a monk. Archbishop says that he is blessed to have a son out of his marriage, who turned out to be a wonderful man. In his interview, he shares his passion for God and for serving people. If you would like to learn more about Archbishop Mor Cassianus or perhaps you would like to visit the soup kitchen, or donate to fight hunger locally with Archbishop, listen to our interview or visit his social media.
