Having heard so much about Marcus Aurelius from the writing, posts, and talks of Ryan Holiday (@ryanholiday ) I figured I'd check this book out. After checking Amazon I noticed this specific version of the book was selling for $1.00, on Prime shipping. So no shipping or handling, just $1 and I could get a copy of one of the greatest philosophers. So, yea… I bought one for me and my brother.
This book was a short read but phenomenal. Such deep thought provoking statements written in journal format. This book really makes you take a step back from your perception of reality to get a deeper understanding of life and your role in it. At times it can be a bit depressing but you must power through and use this information as a force to push you forward not weigh you down.

Today we celebrate the Virginmartyr Eulalia of Barcelona. Saint Eulalia was raised by pious Christian parents in Barcelona of Spain. By fourteen years of age, she lived her life in prayer with other young virgin girls who devoted their lives to studying the Holy Scriptures and handicrafts. During a persecution of Diocletian and Maximian, the governor Dacian was sent to Barcelona to exterminate the Christians. Heaving heard of the arrival of the governor, Eulalia secretly left her home at night and made her way to the city. The next morning, the young virgin publicly denounced the governor for persecuting the Christians and for forcing them to offer sacrifice to the demons instead. Enraged, the governor ordered that Eulalia be stripped of her clothes and beaten with rods. When he saw that she remained steadfast, she was tied to a tree and her flesh was torn at with iron claws and her wounds burned with torches. During the martyr's torture, he asked her "Where is your God now?" To which she replied that He was standing right beside her, and that the governor could not see Him because of his impurity. Having prayed to the Lord, the flames of the torches turned on the tormentors who then fell to the ground. Eulalia prayed that the Lord might take her soul, and with this prayer, a white dove came from her mouth and flew up to Heaven. Suddenly, a snow storm covered the martyr's naked body like a white garment. Saint Eulalia is considered one of the first Martyrs of Spain. May she intercede for us always + #saint #eulalia #evlalia #barcelona #spain #martyr #protomartyr #virginmartyr #persecution #rome #romanemperor #diocletian #maximian #martyrdom #dove #God #prayer #pray #relic #relics #orthodox #sophia

📍Split, Croatia

This palace was built for the Roman Emperor in 305 BC, and later became a place for Roman refugees. How humbling it is to stand somewhere with that much history. If only we could see what life was really like back then..
