Death to the World

Schema Cross Bag
Schema-cross side messenger bags made from some heavy duty canvas with plenty of pockets and room for a convenient on the go bag. The DTTW team has been using these for a long time to carry and pass out 'zines. We first printed them for the  Cornerstone festivals that we did in '06, '07, and '09. Since then, we have taken those same bags on pilgrimages to Russia, Greece, Alaska, and recently Mt Athos. All the rugged wear and tear is not enough to break these tough military style bags down.

About Us

What do we mean by Death to the World?

“The world” is the general name for all the passions. When we wish to call the passions by a common name, we call them the world. But when we wish to distinguish them by their special names, we call them passions. The passions are the following: love of riches, desire for possessions, bodily pleasure from which comes sexual passion, love of honor which gives rise to envy, lust for power, arrogance and pride of position, the craving to adorn oneself with luxurious clothes and vain ornaments, the itch for human glory which is a source of rancor and resentment, and physical fear. Where these passions cease to be active, there the world is dead…. Someone has said of the Saints that while alive they were dead; for though living in the flesh, they did not live for the flesh. See for which of these passions you are alive. Then you will know how far you are alive to the world, and how far you are dead to it.”

-St Isaac the Syrian (7th Century)
