Tuesday October 31st – 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 †

        I have one of those cats, smiley – Mimi is a barn cat we adopted when her mother was killed by a red fox – she is a real tough little Calico who has her mother’s tail and her dad’s disposition – she has a scratchboard that looks like shredded box material – and she goes bonkers on it – she had a rough beginning so I guess she takes it out on the box (and my black and white lady-like cat, Miori) – guess fighting for her milk at a young age made her feisty – sometimes, she just smacks Miori just because – she resents sharing her home with her – however…

        Her best buddy in the whole wide world is ‘Happy’ – an aptly-named Shih Tzu who does not like to share his ‘mother’ (my daughter) with anyone – including her husband – so guess they have a lot in common – Mimi misses Happy – he moved away with his mom and new daddy – yup – they fight over her – lol

        This is the crazy dog/cat house where nutty adoptees live – all have their quirks – but, we are not dysfunctional – just kooky! Long story, smiley – not enough space here…but – I wrote a poem about Mimi and Happy – called ‘Missing Mimi’ – seems apropos now – perhaps, I will share it sometime –

        God Bless You, smiley – for making us all ‘smile’ on a daily basis!

      1 Peter 5:8-9 (NIV)
      Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.

    Here is an item for lovers of history.

    The date of October 31, 1517 is being proclaimed as the day when the Monk Martin (Luther) posted his 95 Theses.

    To be historically accurate, it is necessary to remember that October 31st is the date on the calendar in use (by the majority of Christendom) at the time.

    The current civil or commercial or secular calendar had not been invented and implemented yet by the Pope of Rome, Gregory XIII, until 1582.

    The Monk Martin was born, lived, and died entirely on the Church Calendar adopted at the First Œcumenical Synod at Nicæa in Asia Minor in the year of Our Lord 325.

    October 31st on the Church Calendar during Martin Luther’s lifetime is not the same date on the current civil or secular calendar.

    The general use of Pope Gregory XIII’s calendar in 1582 (starting in October) came about in various ways and occurred over several centuries throughout Christendom. Sometimes the adoption of this “New Calendar” happened peacefully and sometimes under bloodshed.

    To this day there are millions of Orthodox Christians worldwide still using the Church Calendar.

    On a different note, two Lutheran scholars researched and wrote a highly detailed article published several years in the “Lutheran Quarterly” about the chronology surrounding the printing and posting of Martin Luther’s 95 Theses. That article is available on the Internet in PDF form.

    Thank You Senators.



    Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on remarks made yesterday by Republican leaders who spoke against anti-Catholicism:

    Senate Republicans, joined by three Democrats, stopped a filibuster of the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals; the vote was 54-42. Final confirmation is due soon.

    It was two Mormon Republicans, Senator Orrin Hatch and Senator Mike Lee, who made the most impassioned defense of Barrett’s nomination.

    • Wow. Feinstein and Durbin exemplify just about everything that is wrong with Congress:

      From the article:
      The Notre Dame law professor’s religious convictions were attacked recently by Senator Dianne Feinstein and Senator Dick Durbin, thus teeing up a response from those supporting her. Both Democrats questioned her suitability to be seated on the federal bench given her strong Catholic beliefs. Neither has apologized for their bigoted remarks.

      Senator Hatch did not hold back in his statement. “I have to say that we stoop pretty low if we start to raise questions of religious beliefs before somebody can serve on the federal judiciary. Now I hope that that type of questioning will hit the dustbin of history, where it belongs.”

      Senator Lee was just as pointed. He said “the fact of her religious beliefs or religious affiliation have nothing to do with her qualifications to serve as a federal appellate court judge.”

      Lee also took a shot at those Democrats who made snide remarks about her Catholicism. “They were asking, ‘Do you actually believe that stuff? Do you actually believe the doctrine of your church? Do you believe it deeply, sincerely?’ Suggesting that if so, that is somehow a problem.”

    Just came back from putting a candle on the grave of my parents and grandparents. Tomorrow is Allerheiligen (All Saints Day) and following day is Allerseelen (All Souls Day) and all the graves are lovingly cleaned from the leaves and decorated with flowers. Our small cemetary is a very beautifull place, people from the village, especially the “older” women like me, like to come and visit those that went before us. Its a real caretaking, taking care of each other, of the living and remembering our elders. I came back to this village after a very rough live to take care of my then old parents, now I enjoy this small german rural community very much.

    The forces of law and order no longer control the streets of Chicago.  Heck, they can’t even control inmates in the jail.  Civil order is collapsing.  We learn that once incarcerated, the inmates are controlling the Cook …

    On another topic: Michael Oreskes, a news editor at NPR, and brother of Naomi Oreskes, has sexual harassment accusations brought against him. At Drudge. She is a leading figure in trying to pretend like she is a scientist, and label conservatives “anti-science.”

    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.

      Amen. Lord God, ear our prayer.

      * My friend, wait for the Lord with courage.

      “For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have?  But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.”  (Romans 8: 24 – 25).

      I hope you are uplifted by the message. You must be if you nurse some secret hope in your heart.  I am immersed in immense joy and consolation.  As a young students, we bantered with this phrase frequently:  “Where there is hope, there is life.”  How true! But the Bible puts it better:  “Hope never fails.” (Romans 5: 5).

      The Prophet Jeremiah who suffered a great deal and waited and waited for the Lord, knew one or two things about trusting, hoping and waiting.  He committed his experience in these immortal words:

      “But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.”  (Jeremiah 17: 7 – 8).

      “Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord.”  (Psalm 27: 14)

    Rose McGowan Says Arrest Warrant For Narcotics Is “A Load Of Horsesh*t”
    October 30, 2017

    Harvey Weinstein accuser Rose McGowan is facing arrest after airport police found traces of narcotics in belongings she left behind at Washington Dulles International Airport after she arrived on a flight from Los Angeles earlier this year.McGowan has accused Weinstein of raping her in 1997, and claims that one of the disgraced producer’s close associates offered her $1 million to remain silent about the assault.


    “Our police have attempted to contact Ms. McGowan so that she can appear in a Loudoun County Virginia court to respond to the charge.” The charge against her, he told Deadline, is a felony.

    Airport police, he said, “have been issued a bench warrant and entered it into a national law enforcement database.”
