Wednesday January 23rd – 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 †

    Not sure how to add a photo. I wanted to show how great things were here in Texas where the local Angleton Little League is having their spring raffle. Prizes include Radical AR -17, Browning AB3 7 mag, Glock 19, 9 mm, Rugar LCP 10 year Anniversary 380acp, and many other guns. May bring shock to some people that a Fundraiser includes guns but I think it is terrific. Hope I win one.

    How The System Operates:

    We have a gentleman who, in 1994, kidnapped, sodomized and strangled to death a 6 year old boy. He was captured, confessed to the crime, was tried and convicted.

    Enter liberal lawyers. His first conviction was overturned due to a technicality. He was tried again and convicted again. Fast forward a few years the lawyers again got his 2nd conviction overturned on yet another technicality. Roll the redux, he was tried for a 3rd time and once again was convicted. Fast forward again and the lawyers are once more trying to get his 3rd conviction overturned on a really made-out-of-whole-BS ‘technicality’.

    Note that they are NOT saying he is innocent, the little POS has confessed in great and lurid detail to the crime and has continually said that if he is freed he’ll definitely do it again, he totally admits guilt and no rehab possibility. The lawyers are saying that these questionable little and finely parsed details that they’ll argue before a panel of judges mean that he should be set free. He’s guilty as hell, has constantly admitted guilt and the desire to commit the crime again but as the trial judges didn’t consider circumstances so remote the Hubble telescope couldn’t see them he should be set free to rape and murder young children again. Oh, BTW, if this admitted child molester is released he probably won’t have to register as a pervert on the state’s site as his conviction will be vacated.

    Saint Theophan the Recluse, Bishop of Tambov

    He served the Orthodox Church in Russia during the 19th century (including the Russian Mission in the Holy Land, but eventually resigned as a Bishop and withdrew from public life to a monastery.

    Saint Theophan dedicated himself to prayer, giving spiritual guidance through correspondence, and translating and writing several notable spiritual books.

    He compiled selections from the early Church Father, Saint Ephraim the Syrian, into a profound work called “A Spiritual Psalter” that is now available in English. Another of his classic works – “The Path to Salvation” – has also been published in English. He reposed on this date in 1894.

    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.

    A prayer for Justice Kavanaugh and Col. Flynn:

    Prayer to St. Michael

    St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle;
    be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
    May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
    and do you, O prince of the heavenly host,
    by the power of God,
    thrust into hell Satan and the other evil spirits
    who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    Micah 7:8 ESV

    Rejoice not over me, O my enemy; when I fall, I shall rise; when I sit in darkness, the Lord will be a light to me.

    The elderly woman at my church who always has such nice prayers for President Trump, not as a president but as a man, is in the hospital and not doing too well.
    As she’s having a lot of anxiety, if anyone would like to say a prayer for her, it would be welcome.

    Here is something I do not get at all.
    It has become obvious that the MSM and the Uniparty have been ramping up attacks on Christianity in general, and lately Catholicism in particular.
    The attacks on young boys by a large number of frenzied and deranged celebrity types should make that obvious.
    My question is, those young boys at the March For Life made headlines.
    Where, oh where, is the POPE?
    Why does he not come to their defense? Why does he not even defend the faith?
    What is going on?
