#3 most popular Cranach blog post of the year

Number 3 was posted not this year at all but way back in March 16, 2012, in honor of St. Patrick’s Day.   It gives “St. Patrick’s Breastplate,” the wonderful Christo-centric meditation written by the ancient missionary:

Christ within me, Christ behind me, Christ before me.

#6 most popular Cranach post of the year

The #6 most popular post of the year was not from this year at all, but from July 14, 2003.  But people are still viewing it in great numbers:

We can’t get enough information about dogs, and the topic never gets old.

#7 most popular Cranach blog post of the year

On April 16, we linked to another post that dismantled myths about the origins of Easter, which became the seventh most viewed post of the year:

Easter did NOT come from a pagan holiday.

And in honor of this week’s upcoming holiday, which is also the subject of similar myths, I offer this bonus from Christmas Eve, 2012:

Christmas was NOT based on the Roman Juvenalia

#8 most popular Cranach blog post of the year

On April 3, 2014, we put up a post about Spanish scholars who are claiming to have identified the cup that Jesus used in the Last Supper.  This ostensibly scientific quest lacked the panache of quest undertaken by the Knights of the Round Table.  And by those older standards, the grail must not have been achieved after all, since the spiritual wasteland continues.  But the post on the subject was the eighth most popular of the year:

Finding the Holy Grail?.
