Priest, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal is poring over the practicality of complementing his sizable Fiction Corpus with a history of oversized art; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I think highly of the possibility of legislating English as a global standard. I do question the ordinary technique by which English is taught.Pointer

Improving one's skillfulness with a language isn't like introducing a bigger dam. A language - a common language - is not just an instrument that you can learn to use with greater amounts of precision. A language cannot be sequestered from the competing values of a society of which it is a description. A language isn't recited; it happens - and keeps happening as long as a circle of people keeps using it.

Teaching people to recite English is to rob them of its cultural context. An informed teacher must find a method of introducing it; the perceptive student ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary has the potential to be an influential tool. The best dictionaries describe words based on a specific corpus, a set of writing of varying scope and consistency. Such a corpus can contain everything from a book about literature to an entire set of drama plays. I burnt many candles laboring on my "substantial" Fiction Corpus to form a unique class of dictionary based on the ability of one man to tell a story in myriad forms. It is a labor of love and listening.

I have crafted a million words and I have catalogued them, reframing them - not just to teach English vocabulary but to defend the human soul, and to coax that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

Help End Corruption With ArtOne of Margo's pictures from our trip across Europe.

Strength and dignity are her clothing...

Proverbs 31:25

Author's Note: I have been enjoined from sharing the details of my true romance adventure until such time that the other party is prepared to present her perspective on the affair arrangement...Pointer

Lots of people go on road trips. Not everybody criss-crosses Europe in 46 days. Especially not with a complete stranger.

I had come to Europe to experience European naturism, a movement whose philosophy matched my aesthetic of body acceptance and whose organizational structure and leadership I had thought almost exclusively restricted to the western half of the continent. I was shocked to learn that naturism had an official home in Poland, a country not especially known for its liberal culture. I was less shocked to discover that the home was owned by a Dutchman, but even more shocked to learn that it had been largely built by Margo.

Being from America, all I had to do in Europe was turn on the radio to hear an American song. All I had to do was walk into a movie theater to see an American movie. To be understood all I had to do was speak English. Being from Poland, she couldn't stand listening to the radio for all the political nonsense being bandied about. She didn't like watching American movies because she claimed they all ended the same way. She didn't want to speak English with me because she not only wanted to say things correctly but she wanted to say them her way and nobody had ever succeeded in teaching her how. I desperately wanted to understand. She wanted to be understood.

6,000 miles. One car. One tent. We started learning how to listen. We started learning how to open up. We started cooperating. Even when we were angry, even when it was so difficult that it didn't seem like it would turn out well, we stuck it out. We completed the trip and we came back happy. We had beaten the devil on the road. Back home more devils were waiting to abuse us. More anger. More fear. More sadness. This time we were prepared. This time we had each other and we could harken back to the joy and the trust and the suprise that 6,000 miles had created. We could remember what it was like to live in one tent.

THE DISAPPEARING WOMAN, THE DISAPPEARING MAN...Pointer

a collection of modern art prints and posters

During our trip across Europe, Margo very bravely opened up to me and to the camera. It was a difficult thing to do considering the scars that she carries. I wanted to share with the world her often joyful, often sad, often angry but always liberating experience except that the Internet is full of pictures of naked women and men and full of trolls who abuse them.

I realized that what I really need to point out is not the openness that Margo and I cultivated between ourselves, but the darkness that continues to surround us. When I censor nudity, I do so in a way that does not compromise the integrity of the human body. In censoring the photographs that Margo and I took during our trip, I was quick to notice that in those pictures where Margo was at her most open, at her most unguarded and most relaxed, in a word, when she was herself and basking in the sun I was forced to blacken her completely.

Why does our society drive people into darkness? Why can we not accept ourselves as we are? Why can we not accept our bodies? Have we truly become eunuchs? Or are we capable of defying the sickness that pits us against each other? Together we could conquer the devils that abuse us.

Whether you enjoy being nude or not, whether you've been photographed nude or not, but especially if, for you, like for Margo, it's something you never thought you would do, consider submitting your own photograph to be published in a censored manner as a form of protest against the ubiquitous presence of the human body on the internet, naked or not, that is published and duplicated ad infinitum without context and without regard for the identity or the needs of the individual being depicted.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Priest

A word can represent many things. First and foremost it represents a type of gesture. A specific way of speaking. A specific way of inscribing a mark. A specific way of moving your hand. To know one of these kinds of gestures is to know how to pronounce the word priest in some kind of way.

If you want to communicate an idea using the word priest, you will need to know what other people are made to think when you make the gesture. You will never have complete awareness of or control over the associations or identities that are invoked by a set of words, but you can know what was and what is a single word's jointly accepted definition, at least for a given place, thereby tracing a direction which will help you to understand what kinds of associations and identities are driving its use.

By using the word yourself, you enter into a long-standing albeit oftentimes unconscious debate over its definition, forever entangling yourself into the history of its use. The way you use it, and which other words you use it with carries weight.

The more you know about where the word priest is located in the fabric of a language, the better you will be at exploiting its cultural power.

Usage of Priest in The Gospel of Jesus H.

A picture of the planet Mars

An experimental science fiction Christology that makes Jesus the hard boiled narrator of his own early years on a bizarro earth made dark by volcanic ash and informally ruled by a man from Mars who sells bottled air.

The order's Rule was modeled after the Benedictine and was cowritten by Jesus and the Pope, who took a very serious personal interest. The Cosmonauts were divided into four classes: two ranks of combatants - knights and sergeants, who were necessarily members of the Brigade - and two ranks of non-combatants - chaplains, who were consecrated priests, and servants, who were either tenants in charge of management or nurses in charge of health care. Requirements for admission to these ranks were stipulated by the Rule, and, though initially the Pope was allowed to choose, albeit it with Jesus's approval, the number and identity of the chaplains, afterwards, on Mars, only the Grand Master would need decide. Jesus was allowed to choose his own servants and sergeants but candidates for the knighthood would have to be approved by the chaplains. Vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience only had to be permanent for chaplains and knights. Everyone else could take temporary vows if he or she so desired. The vow of chastity, as it pertained to non-clerics, did not include celibacy but allowed for marriage within the order.

Verse 89 from the chapter called Vows

"The problem is that most priests like telling people what to do: unfortunately, the Polish priest isn't very good at it. More often than not, he sounds like he's giving orders: like he's in the army. He's imperious and impatient. He never tolerates insubordination - and, because most people aren't under his command, he likes to pick on his own troops. The Polish priest thinks he's the last defense against their corruption, their cowardice and negligence. He is their leader - their true chief - and, usually, he makes for the worst of Catholics. It's every faithful man's duty to make the Polish priest humiliate himself.

Verse 676 from the chapter called Security

"I guess it was a local story. Anyway, it was hilarious: all these hooligans signed up and they started having street fights with scourges. Innocent people got caught in the crossfire. The priests realized they had lost control of the whole thing. There were rival flagellation confraternities that only ended up perpetuating street gang rivalries. It was ridiculous." We laughed.

"Did you," she asked, "whip yourself?"

Verses 807-808 from the chapter called Bohemia

When I got back to Stando's house, I gave him the mellophone and said, "Give this to the army guys once they come." Going back to the Old Town, at five o'clock I attended Mass at the Jesuit church. It was full of old women; there were few men. I was the youngest thing around. How strange, I thought to myself. Does no one among the younger generation appreciate the divine service? Then I noticed something even more strange: the homily was being given by the selfsame Italian Jesuit who had whipped himself on top of Henry the Bearded's tomb just a few months ago. He was being translated by the local priest! I laughed out loud. Was he going to whip himself again? The babičkas gave me a dirty look. I laughed. This time, in the Czech Republic, the Italian Jesuit wasn't going to find many able-bodied volunteers: they were all too old and tired.

Verse 782 from the chapter called Bohemia

They sold heroin to kids. Heroin was wrapped up in that 'premium silk.' They sold it to kids on the street. They sold it to mothers with young children. They sold it to workers, young and old, blue and white collared. They sold it to lunatics, healthy people, sick people, people in wheelchairs, deadbeats, homosexuals - they didn't discriminate. They sold it to priests, politicians, bus drivers, Jewish people -they sold it to anyone with money to spend. If you were penniless, you had to rob someone. But God forbid you should rob from them: they would kill you! They would shoot you dead! They were once your best friends back in the day. That's what it was like: they were once your best friends and they were still your neighbors; you would greet them on the way downstairs.

Usage of Priest in Sex for Children

A drawing of a man between a woman's legs in front of another man in a hospital bed

A literature book narrated by a pair of siblings on either side of the Atlantic whose profoundly weird sexual experiences pose a serious challenge to their traditional understanding of mathematicians, marriage, gay young men and God.

For a moment, Father Nike was just a little bit ashamed. But, he recovered quickly. "You may leave us now, sister: thank you."

Once they were left alone, nothing happened; so Nike said: "Let's go for a walk, shall we?"

And so they began walking around the cloister in silence - very slowly: step by step - as far as Nike could tell, very painfully.

But they walked on, rounding each corner when they came to it, Nike on the outside, until Basia stopped. Onto a bench made of stone, she sank down. "You're a priest?" came the gentle whisper.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 6, The Sixth Day, Part 1, Children & Education Reform, Section 7, Becoming Obedient, Paragraphs 4-7

He didn't go there to pray: he was looking for something very specific. And, as he was leaning into a transept, looking to see if there were any doors perhaps hidden somewhere in the alcoves, a Jesuit priest stopped right behind him and asked him what he was looking for. "God," said Nike, smiling. "I'm looking for God, Monseigneur." So the priest told him to follow him to the rectory, and there, he gave Nike some valuable literature. Nike thanked him very generously, and then he left.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 6, The Sixth Day, Part 1, Children & Education Reform, Section 6, Encountering Chastity, Paragraph 6

ANDY: Well...there are lots of heroes. It follows a group of soldiers - actually, they're soldier slash priests.

CHR: Really?

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 3, The Third Day, Part 2, Prayer & The Reformation, Section 10, Bringing Up a Sore Subject, Paragraphs 34-35

Nike threw himself at her knees. "No, beloved. I am not a priest. I assure you: I am the scurviest man ever to wear this collar: since I do so in the rankest of deception, having no respect for obedience and coming here only to steal you from this beautiful place. My own life, dear sister, without you, is complete agony.

Gog walked up the river Danu. He was greatly troubled. "How am I to find the holy mountain?" he asked himself. "The Haoma [i.e. a caste of priests] say the stars revolve around it.

Usage of Priest in Sorry Ms. Jackson

Chiseled letters from an ancient stone tablet hanging on a wall

A real play. With drama in it. Talk fast. It takes two hours. Set in a guest house. In a small community. After a murder. Lots of suspicion. The characters learn to listen to each other. It's funny.

FLETCHER: Good. My mother's been trying to stop her. I don't blame her for that. I feel sorry for the poor girl. Her story is a sad one. Kokomo's grandmother was raped by the Japanese while they were occupying the island of Upolu in Western Samoa. That's where Kokomo was born. Her mother was the product of that horrendous crime. Though they were the victims, both mother and child were ostracized by their tribe. Even after her mother had grown up, only the Catholic priest would take pity on them. Kokomo was the product of that pity. Eventually, she went to American Samoa to work as a prostitute for the tuna canners. One day, she came home with fifty thousand dollars and a baby. It turned out her pimp had threatened to kill her if she didn't have an abortion. Unfortunately, Kokomo made the ill-advised decision, once the baby came, to run away with the pimp's money. He ended up tracking her down. When he showed up at the mother's hut, Kokomo, in a state of pure shock, burned the money. The guy flipped out, killed her mother, slit the baby's throat, burned down the hut and forced her onto his boat. On their way to Pago Pago, they were hijacked by a bunch of pirates from Fiji. They killed the pimp and then realized he didn't have anything worthwhile except for the girl. While they stood around, trying to decide what to do, Kokomo offered them the greatest sex they would ever have in their entire lives: on the condition that they release her. They figured: why not? They could do whatever they wanted with her no matter what happened. Kokomo blew their minds. They were so satisfied, they stuck to the deal. They let her go in Fiji, where they begged her to stay and work as a prostitute. Kokomo agreed to do it, but only until she made up the fifty thousand dollars that she burned: the money that killed her mother and her newborn baby.

– ACT I, line 770

KOKOMO: It is. I keep telling you that.

FLETCHER: Maybe for Catholics: you have thousands of years of ritual to fall back on: Popes and bishops to decide for you.

KOKOMO: That's not fair.

FLETCHER: I'm supposed to be my own priest.

KOKOMO: Maybe you should start praying.

FLETCHER: For what? For the will to become Catholic?

KOKOMO: You know what I am. You've taken the time to study what my faith requires. I'm overjoyed by that. I realize it angers you sometimes. You need to remember it isn't about priests or prayer or sacraments or the Bible or saints or miracles or doctrine or creed. It's not even about salvation. It's about sacrifice. If you, Fletcher Christian, are not willing to place yourself into the hands of God - to submit yourself to His Divine Mercy - then nothing else matters and there will never be any happiness between us.

FLETCHER: I see that.

KOKOMO: You don't see it.

FLETCHER: How can you tell?

Usage of Priest in Miscellaneous Dingbats

The title of the book at the end of a string of miscellaneous dingbats

A story book full of short fiction stories. An interesting bedtime mystery. A fairy tale. Science fiction romance. Adult life. Uninspiring gay fiction. Horror.

The beautiful Branca was the first child born to Sir Lima. The first of ten. I'm sure she was and remains his pride and joy. I wouldn't know. I've never met the man. Or Branca. Everything I know about her and her family comes from the boy who lived down the street from them. The boy who grew up to be a priest. A professor. The boy who to this day at the sheer mention of the name Branca leans back his head, inserts hand into shirt and begins violently pumping the fabric as if pistons were about to explode through his chest. I wish he wouldn't do it. If he tears a hole in his shirt I won't buy him a new one. His tastes are too expensive. That's his Hong Kong upbringing. His vow of poverty hasn't done much to squash it.

Censorship says everything...as should modern wall art

It's natural to hide dirty things. They're embarrassing. But we need to keep in mind that when we hide things that are difficult, we make them seem dirty when they're really something else entirely. And when we keep things that are easy in plain sight, we make them seem clean when they really aren't. That is dangerous.
