Aber mit der Heimat
geht man immer herum,
durch die Welt,
dort und dort
No one could describe
the Word of the Father;
but when He took flesh from you, O Theotokos,
He consented to be described, and restored the fallen image to its former beauty.
We confess and proclaim our salvation in word and image.

Â Star Wars *and* Lord of the Rings geekery in one week: you are spoiling us! :-)
Â Great clip, and if you think my *theological* opinions are somewhat off, I should perhaps confess to my deep love of the Star Wars prequels ;) (in fairness, John Ford style ‘wooden’ delivery is, in our brutalised and psuedo-profound movies-as-vehicles-for-dialogue, something for Lucas to be proud of. Revenge of the Sith has certainly aged a damn site better than any of Simon Pegg’s geeks-can-be-cool-toÂ vacuous, painfullyÂ derivativeÂ nonsense…… )
