Daily Draw: Russian Tarot of St. Petersburg ~ Page of Cups

A clear sense of faith and spirituality is indicated by this young Page of Cups. Some of the most ornate and beautiful churches in the world are in Russia but for much of the 20th century the citizens were not allowed to worship openly.

Inner faith is much of who I am yet I shudder at what organized religions have become. I don't think it's mankind that is rudderless, it is the churches because they have lost sight of their original purpose of faith in a higher being. They are simply a morass of rules and strictures created by man to control man. Who needs all that claptrap? I don't need a mediator to speak to my God, the door is always open to talk to him directly. I'm reminded by this card that Foxhole Faith is temporary, true faith lives in my heart.

"Faith is not belief. Belief is passive. Faith is active." ~ Edith Hamilton 1868-1963
