I Roll In Brambles

Exploring the need to purify ourselves by rolling in thorns, as St Benedict did. We can also whip ourselves with thorns. This is NOT a self-harm issue, it is about self-help and purification. 2 People

    Rolling In Brambles

    Does anybody here desire to take themselves to thick blackcurrant bramble and roll in it, as St Benedict did till his back and belly and sides were apparently "dripping with gore-blood" ? It is wise to take care if doing this in the place where the bramble is growing...
