BreXit : Ask Not What Article 50 Can Do For You - Ask What You Can Do For Our Nation and Your People

“We’ve been praying, together, praying that God will save Our Town. 

And our prayers have been answered. 

God will save Alexandria - because God has GIVEN  Us the COURAGE to save it OURSELVES!”

“No one gets to clock out today. 

And Hell - This is a story people are gonna tell!”

Five to One, baby,
One in Five

No One Here Gets Out Alive

The narrator of Sir Gawain is very clear about what the pentangle (five-pointed star) on Gawain’s shield represents:

It is a symbol that Solomon designed long ago 
As an emblem of fidelity, and justly so; 
Therefore it suits this knight and his shining arms,
For always faithful in five ways, and five times in each case,
Gawain was reputed as virtuous,
(625-626; 631-633)

These five ways in which Gawain is virtuous are in 

  • The Dexterity of his 5 Fingers, 
  • The Perfection of his 5 Senses, 
  • His Devotion to the 5 Wounds of Christ, 
  • His Reflection on the 5 Joys of Mary in Christ and, finally, 
  • 5 virtues: 
    • Generosity, 
    • Fellowship, 
    • Chastity, 
    • Courtesy, and 
    • Charity. 



The pentangle is an appropriate representation of these five areas of virtue because each of the five sides of the pentangle transitions seamlessly into the next. This aspect of its geometry might represent the way in which the virtues are interrelated, each area feeding into and supporting the other.
