Hope will be found and reflected from one another, not homes, material possessions or politicians, but in your fellow human being. Ask yourself, do my actions reflect faith and trust in Our Divine Creator? Do my actions and thoughts reflect unconditional love, compassion, kindness, empathy and tolerance to those around me? Am I inclusive in my thoughts and actions or am I selective in inclusion and exclude or ostracize all others? Do I judge others and ostracize those whose beliefs are not in alignment with mine? Do I reflect the energy, the love of God, Our Divine Creator in every thought and action as I move through this world? Look within and ask yourself, “Do I respond to the world with the same unconditional love, compassion, empathy, tolerance and acceptance as God demonstrates to me?” For it is the law of attraction that says, The Universe, God, The Source of Creation, reflects back to you that which you present to the world and the universe as a whole.

Etymology and historical origin of the name “Sebastian:”
Sebastian comes from the Latin Sebastianus meaning “man from Sēbastē” which was an ancient town located in present-day Turkey and named for Augustus Caesar. The name ultimately comes from the Greek word “sebastos” (σεβαστος) meaning “venerable” and was the Greek equivalent of the Latin regal title, Augustus, given to Caesar. The name was borne by a 3rd century saint who joined the Roman army as a way to quietly protect and defend the Christian martyrs of his day while avoiding detection during the Christian persecutions of the Roman Empire. Legend has it that St. Sebastian was killed with arrows by his fellow soldiers, and he became a favorite of medieval artists who depicted this bloody event. Sebastian became the patron saint of athletes and soldiers (for his strong physical endurance) and the patron saint of plague sufferers (for his reported cures of those afflicted with many diseases). His name was popularized by Christians in the 14th century during the Black Death which reinforced the appeal of this protective saint’s name. Today Sebastian is quite popular all over the Western World, supplying the name with ample amounts of Cosmopolitan Coolness.
