Sunday June 17th – 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 †

    Father’s day mostly always leaves me with a lump in my throat…Mine died way too soon, I was only 12, and my world turned ass over tea kettle. So, I feel his absence, and I wish I could have talked to him as an adult… But today I realized something… something important.. I was thinking about him, how he used to go jogging, way back in the 60s, how he liked to build things, how he liked to play tennis, how he loved fishing and how he was an avid reader. These are the things I have enjoyed my whole life. So, while he might not have been here in the flesh, but I believe he has been near me in spirit…hmmmmmmmm TY Dad.

    The Third Sunday after Pentecost in the Orthodox Church.

    The Gospel reading is from the Gospel according to Saint Matthew 6:22-33 – “The Eye is the Lamp of the Body.”

    The link below is for the Explanation of this Gospel from Saint Theophylact of Ohrid and Bulgaria, who lived ten centuries ago.

    Also, on this date on the traditional Orthodox Church Calendar (June 4th), the Holy New Martyrs of the Turkish Yoke are commemorated. The Church knows the names of hundreds of the New Martyrs, who were from the Holy Land, from the Balkans, from Asia Minor, and from the Caucasus.

    The Church also honors Saint Mary and Martha, the sisters of Saint Lazaros, who was dead three days and was returned to life by the Lord Jesus Christ. Saint Lazaros served the Church as a Bishop after Pentecost and was assisted by his sisters in spreading the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ.

    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.

      “Do not mistake cutting out a man’s tongue for changing his opinion” Levant was referring to Tommy Robinson here. This thought gave me shivers because it brought to mind the Lord Protector of England, Thomas Cromwell the Puritan, who managed to behead a king for tyrannical behavior, a hundred years before the French got around to doing the same.

      Not that I want to cut off anyone’s head, king or otherwise, but the story was that the king’s men had cut out the tongue of a villager who protested against the King’s policies

      Our college history departments and others have degraded the history of the Puritans –, but they were sensible, practical people who noticed that European aristocracy had a strong tendency towards being amoral, inbred, mentally and physically ill, and an oppressive nuisance to the general public… we need to be serving God, not flawed personalities lifted up by accident of birth. So first the Puritans moved to the Americas to found a thriving successful colony in Massachusetts, a “City on the Hill”; and then Puritans in England overthrew the oppressors of the British Isles who had allied with foreign empires….
