Sudarium of Oviedo, Harry Gove


Body On Shroud Vertical not Horizontal

I had a dog I had raised from a pup. He had been born in my home. He was part German Shepherd, part Labrador, part collie.

One day I came home to find tubes of dog food all over my floor. I took him to my vet. The vet had him for a couple of weeks. He ran tests. At the end of it the vet advised me to put him down.

“If you want a second opinion take him to Guelph Veterinary College     .

Guelph had him another two weeks.

“No dog in this country has survived with what he has,” they told me.

I said, “What about outside the country?”

“Two in The United States did,” they replied.

I stated, “Then one in Canada will.”

It took a long while. I almost gave up. I detail it in my talk, “No Dog In This Country Has Survived With What He Has.”

Three things are important: Faith, Hope, Love.

Faith leads us when we have no light.

“Most teachers say you should go to school to get your degree to have something to fall back on. Aside from being a huge lie, that also creates a very high level of mediocrity, because nobody who really believes that is going to take the leap of faith required to be a serious artist. Stay out of school.”–Ellis Marsalis to his sons Branford, Delfeayo and Wynton.

Hope causes us to continue when everyone else gives up.

Love calls us to do the impossible.

That is the only thing worth doing.

The evidence that something overwhelmingly impossible happened to the body of Jesus Of Nazareth is overwhelming recorded on The Shroud Of Turin.

People terrified to accept its evidence refuse to look.

I’ll be damned before I let fear rule my life.–Reg Hartt 2018–02–03.


The best reason to not read newspapers is that the majority of writers discuss people. The best reason to read newspapers is that now and then a few writers discuss ideas.

“Can you sleep in the park?” a young man asked me in 1968?” ” I replied, “You might get arrested. Why?” “My father said, ‘my way or the highway.'” “Come with me,” I told him. We became friends. Through him, by chance, I discovered THE I CHING. It teaches we can not separate learning from doing. When we do both become sterile. It also teaches that while inferior people try to create order out of chaos superior people see the order inherent in chaos. Jane Jacobs: “There is a quality even meaner than outright ugliness or disorder, and this meaner quality is the dishonest mask of pretended order, achieved by ignoring or suppressing the real order that is struggling to exist and to be served.”  The world is governed by inferior people who attempt to impose the dishonest mask of pretended order. This is true of our governments and our churches (religious systems). No where is this more true than in public attitudes towards our sexuality. “Whatever the world condemns you for, make it your own. It is yourself,” stated Jean Cocteau. He is right.
