The film stars Chris Evans (our magazine cover), who is most famous for playing Steve Rogers/Captain America in The Avengers & Captain America movies, so this film is a bit of a departure for him. Mckenna Grace plays one of the main roles, and it is a lot to ask of such a young actress to be in nearly every scene, but despite her tender age she already has a lot of television and films under her belt. You may recognise Jenny Slate from popular television shows like House of Lies, Parks and Recreation and Girls to name a few. Lindsay Duncan you will know as a stage, television and film actress, you might have seen her in the film Birdman, Alice in Wonderland or the television show Dr Who and last but by no means least award winning actress Octavia Spencer, who played in films The Help and Hidden Figures.

The Book of Enoch says that phoenixes are bird-like angels, in terms of rank they would sit alongside cherubim (these angels keep records of God’s work; they establish how to carry out the Divine plan) and seraphim (these angels are sometimes referred to as the ‘burning ones’, they are thought to be the closest to God, and their red colour represents their burning love for him).
The mythical Phoenix is often associated with the sun.
Around every five hundred years the phoenix will feel death upon him; he will build a funeral pyre in which to immolate himself. But shortly after he will rise from the ashes (hence the phoenix rising), fully restored!

Your entries should be a lot different from those of your personal diary where you might discuss events or something you did that day. For example “I went shopping today and bought a new dress” would be a classic journal entry. Think of your spiritual diary as a daily written record of personal reactions on spiritual matters. If written regularly you will make quick progress along the spiritual path. (more…)
