Sunday September 16th – 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 don’t remember seeing this in the press or being touted on the nightly ‘Hate Trump’ news:

    Wasn’t this while John ‘War Hero’ Kerry was in Tehran kissing Moslem fundamentalist butt, telling them to wait out Trump and then they could all go back to killing Christians and Jews?

    Note that the bombing was at a rally that Giuliani may well have been at…or the bomb could have been brought to him…jes sayin’. Elected official Kerry on a non-official visit to one of the US’s and Israel’s biggest enemies who had a government diplomat actively planning on murdering Iranian dissidents in another sovereign country…at an event that Rudy would likely to have been at. There’s av patriotic Rat for ya’.

    Hello Treehouse members. I just signed up after lurking on this site for well over 2 years. I’ve admired (and been enlightened) by Sundance’s research, to say the least. Love reading the comments, smart people here. Please bear with me as I stumble through. It’s taken me a long time to get up the guts to come to this site…again, you guys are smart!
    Best to you from a Trump supporter whose heart and mind met him at the escalator!

      Sound like me. It took me 2 years of lurking before I posted, too, and I, too, did stumbled around in the beginning. Luckily I had one treeper who kept encouraging me to keep going.

      So, with that said…I and all the Treepers welcome you to the Treehouse. Grab a branch…..and continue to help MAGA.

        Grandma C, I came to CTH (in November, 2014) via a link posted in a comment at Breitbart (I think). And like you, I lurked for a while also. Suspect a number of us started out as lurkers. 😉

          farmerren, I opened a WP acct (it was free) in late January, 2016 so I could “Like” comments (after hanging around since November, 2014). I set it to private. I don’t blog – so no one can access my page and fill it up w/spam or whatever without my knowledge. Consequently, I don’t monitor it. I have received a few emails from WP saying someone wants to view my page – I can give my consent or just ignore its email and the person can’t gain access. Just something you should keep in mind. And… welcome aboard.

    Remember when.
    Remember the Sundays of going to Holy Mass and you wore your best? Mom in a modest dress, Dad wearing a suit and tie. My Sunday shoes spit and polished. Whoa have times changed. Especially on “Packer Sunday”. Mrs. Monkee and I bounce between 4 parishes and the attire is getting more outrageous. Men wearing shorts, Mom’s ready for the beach moments, kids in scruffy shorts and tee-shirts. Hey, I get it, I cannot read hearts, but its surely distracting. Remember when…

      And hats. You forgot the hats. Mom and I and all the other females in Church had to wear a hat.

      I miss those days.

        P. Monkee and Dora, I bobby pinned one of those round lace black doilies on my head for mass and always wore a dress or skirt. Wouldn’t dream of wearing slacks. This was through out the 60’s.

          One time I even pinned a tissue on my head. For some reason I didn’t have a hat with me that day and I wouldn’t dare enter the Church with my head uncovered.

          What we are talking about here is respect. Unfortunately, that’s a word we don’t hear anymore.

            Same here. 🤣😂 Tissue-wise.

            One parishioner wears a nice, lacy, slightly longer than shoulder length, head cover mantilla. I find it very respectful, and tasteful. I’ve searched online but can’t find any nearly the same. I’ll be seeing her this Tuesday night for a Bible class she’s leading. I’m going to ask her where she got them.

            Funny thing is, as a seventh grader in a Catholic school, I hated wearing them back then. How things change indeed.

        Dora, nailed it! Mom used to wear this green and black head piece with black “netting” that covered 1/2 her face. Golly, I hadn’t thought about that in years. 🙂

    September 3rd – Orthodox Church Calendar traditional

    Among the several Saints who are commemorated today is the Holy Royal Martyr Edward, King of England. He suffered an unusual Martyrdom in 978.

    An Orthodox Monastic Brotherhood has a Church dedicated to Saint Edward’s honor outside of London.

    The short video below (if this shows up correctly) is of the Consecration of that Church in 2010, which included British, Greek, and Romanian Bishops and clergy.

    A Priest from Sweden compiled the scenes for the video, which is why the opener is titled in Swedish.

    The first hymn is Psalm 103 (Septuagint) “Bless the Lord, o my soul” in Church Slavonic chanted by a lady from Serbia named Divna Ljubojevic. The second hymn is in English and is sung by a choir of Orthodox nuns.

    Hope this works.

    Have you ever seen the rain..
    Comin’ down on a sunny day”?

    I just did, I was standing outside in the yard, it started raining hard, and the sun was still shining SO bright. I just stood there and looked around at the trees and grass ..
    It was so beautiful!

    The Parable of the Talents

    On the 16th Sunday after Pentecost on the traditional Orthodox Church Calendar, the Gospel reading is from Holy Gospel of Saint Matthew 25: 14-30.

    A commentary from Saint Theophylact is shared in English translation at this link:

  15. There – I fixed it and put it under the proper thread – I think.

    “This is an official White House Statement on the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. The top twelve (12) officials in both the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have been terminated and have either been arrested or formally placed under investigation for Sedition against the government of the United States of America. Additionally, the security clearances and passports have been revoked from the top twelve (12) appointed officials in the previous administration for the reasons previously stated. Due to this state of affairs, the United States Marshal service will oversea all current and future FBI investigations. And the United States Army Judge Advocate General Corps will assume all jurisdictional responsibilities of the DOJ. A State of Emergency has been declared by the President and as such all immigration to the United States has been immediately suspended until further notice. The United States Marine Corps has been instructed to immediately seal our southern border. They are authorized to use lethal force to repel any unauthorized attempt at entry.”

    Starting to get gusty wind here in Southern Middle Tennessee and spin off rain — farther west than predicted but I am sure it won’t be a big deal here. Just some windy rain. Thinking of our fellow treepers and all residents of NC, esp. Wilmington, New Bern, and the flooded areas. Take care of yourselves and update us!

    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.

    What a blessed day! Life is good.

    I don’t usually post in the open forum but if any of y’all hear from Albertus Magnus let him know some of us are thinking of him. He was pretty down last night. Not sure he posts in the open forum but thought I’d take a shot.

    Tomorrow is the beginning of a new week!
    I’m gonna do something outrageous – maybe take my neighbor a jar of pear preserves.

    MAGA, y’all!
