My husband and enjoyed watching the miniseries, “Rome”. It engaged us on a number of levels.
There’s a lot about this series that irritated us, but the two characters / actors shown do no disappoint. Every frame they’re featured in, satisfies.
There’s a point in the film where by all rights, Caesar should have one of them killed. He opts to spare the soldier’s life. When asked for an explanation he explains the two soldiers found his Golden Eagle and were among 24 men of 5000, who survived a catastrophe at sea. They also washed up on a beach somewhere fortuitous, found the treasure etc.
Caesar concluded, the two must have powerful Gods looking out for them. He did not think it wise to take on Gods of this type.
I was struck by this, because there are definitely people who enjoy this kind of favor. Few seem to notice such a thing. Astrologically, Jupiter would be strong in the chart, for sure, but what do you think of this?
If you have ever known someone who you feel had some extraordinary protection, what do you make of it?
