blessed orifices

October 13, 2004

Lest I take myself or this blog in particular too seriously, I respectfully submit from Everyman’s Talmud the quote found below: (I also submit this, because I think it has a shot at dethroning “cuddle parties” for the most comments.)

A prayer for thanksgiving was included in the liturgy to be said after attending to nature’s call: ‘Blessed art Thou, O Lord our God, King of the Universe, Who hast formed man in wisdom and created in him many orifices and vessels. It is revealed and known before the Throne of Thy Glory, that if one of these be opened, or one of those closed, it would be impossible to exist and to stand before Thee. Blessed art thou, O Lord, Who healest all flesh and doest wondrously.’
