Wednesday October 25th – Open Thread

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

    This is for the history buffs here.

    TCM (Turner Classic Movies) is tonight playing the movie “Doctor Zhivago” and the gentleman who introduced the movie referred to the 100th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution as being on October 24-25, 1917.

    Those dates are true, but only if the dates are according to the Old Calendar, the Patristic Church Calendar, the Julian Calendar, which was still used in Russia at that time.

    The 100th anniversary of the beginning of the destruction of an ancient Christian civilization would be correctly marked or observed (not celebrated) on November 6-7 according to the New Style civil calendar.

    There are many books and articles and films about this catastrophe and its aftermath. Not all of them are truthful or have any spiritual depth to them.

    Among those worth reading the most are four sermons or homilies by the Russian-born Saint John of Shanghai and San Francisco (+1966).

    These are titled as follows:
    1. “Russia”
    2. “The Sin of Regicide”
    3. “The Spiritual Condition of the Russian People in the Diaspora”
    4. “950-Year Anniversary of the Baptism of Rus’ ”

    These are available in English in a book titled “Man of God: Saint John of Shanghai and San Francisco.” They are profound.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    And, Lord, we pray for all the people who have been affected by the earthquakes and hurricanes.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
