Sunday May 27th – 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 am back again (with apologise) I write some awful rhyming prose so please indulge me.

    Old Volunteers

    As I kneel by the grave of an old Volunteer
    I cast a cold eye o’er the place you held dear,
    If you saw the state your country’s become
    Just a slight of hand ‘neath a different thumb;
    You’d question those nights you spent ‘on the run’
    Our invaders now an insidious one
    You resisted the crown and the black and tan
    Now its the Club of Rome and the Taliban.

    Did you breed your sons only for export or glory
    Did you hope for a land fit for heroes not slaves
    You thought it was right when writing the story
    Our history now hijacked by a bunch of knaves.

    We have politicians without any soul
    A Pope and his Bishops with no fear of Sheol,
    The Almighty rubbed out of our Constitution
    Each breath we breath out now termed pollution;
    Soon we’ll see siblings contract so-called marriage
    Sodomy sanctioned – we cannot disparage,
    I ask you dear father what was it all for
    Was our Independence worth a bloody war.


    The landscape you loved an industrial waste
    With windmills and pylons constructed in haste,
    Future climate based on pure premonitions
    We must do penance for sins of emissions;
    Our Pontiff insists that the poor burn dung
    Not use fossil fuels lest they reach the top rung,
    Christians now worship the altar of Gaia
    While Brussels new dikdats will be Sharia.


    Saint Patrick rid Ireland of venomous snakes
    Whilst new Pagan Ireland its faith it forsakes,
    The Druids sacrificed babies to satan
    This new law will allow murder be straight on;
    On this Holy Sunday of Trinity
    The Shamrock was used as the Divinity,
    The way Ireland has gone shows that satan has won.
    Patrick showed King Lir three persons in one.


    I would understand if you turned in your grave
    Your beliefs and values the statists deprave,
    Your era discerned what was wrong and was right
    Today we are cowards and give up with no fight;
    But just when we think that there is no more hope
    Lets give the Malthusians a bit more rope;
    All stopped clocks are right at least twice a day
    And pendulums swing back however they sway.


    My father was an Old Volunteer who fought the British Empire to make Ireland free.
    This piece is plagiarised from the great poet song/ writer Eric Bogle and if any readers are musical it is called The Green Fields of France which has been recorded by Finbar Fuery and is an anti World War One song.

    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.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
