Thursday April 25th – 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 †

    • Great persecution is allowed by God when great offense has been rendered unto Him.
      I find it an amazing sign of God’s grace that what the ARchbishop and faithful Catholics worldwide no doubt recognize as the true miraces, the courageous rescue of the Blessed Sacrament, the rescue of the Crown of Thorns and other relics, came to pass, signifying God is still very much a part of Notre Dame.

      France has made it illegal to make much public objection to abortion (there is NO latitude of justice for those who’d even think of praying quietly in front of an abortuary). France has LONG been a passive aggressive supporter of euthanasia (even before the push for assisted suicide we had the horrible, atrocious event back decades ago when a heat wave killed hundreds of seniors unable to afford air conditioning who were decimated…and the then prime minister/president, whatever title they give to their ‘overlords’, couldn’t even come back from his fishing trip to even acknowledge it.

      ANd AFTER he DID return? There was not even a moment of horror, but the now familiar, all too inhumane version of that famous gallic ‘shrug’.

      The saints of France and her history are legion and it takes more than a few generations of atheist liars and narcissists to erase that history AND to erase the power of the prayers no doubt being prayed for France by all of those many every moment.

      The return of grace never happens in a parade or flood, but by the witness of the silent few in a quiet overlooked corner of the belly of the beast. For the faithful do not shrink and retreat from the belly of the beast, but know, with absolute immunity to those whose fear and ignorance and animus rain persecution upon them, that the grace of God IS and WILL be sufficient to sustain them.

      Many do not know that their patron saint, Joan of Arc, was terrified of pain and prayed for God to not let the pain of the fire burning her alive overwhelm her…nonetheless, faced with this and the undoubted temptation to despair by the abandonment to the British by the very king she had rescued from exile, she never renounced her Catholic faith.

      The little maid of Orleans is very much alive and kicking for France from Heaven.

      He’s yet another white man running for president, and he’s willing to ask a woman to serve in the subordinate role of VP?
      How woke of him.
      What is his excuse for not pledging, RIGHT NOW, to step aside, support a WOMAN for the top office, and pledge to be her VP?
      He can get out some of those old “I’m With Her” tee shirts to campaign in.

      I’m so sick of this.
      If these me, especially these completely ‘unqualified’ men, are so serious about Women, why are they themselves running?
      Why aren’t they dropping it out and assuring the nominee will be female?

      A little over a year ago, a FOIA request to release the draft Whitewater indictment against Hillary Clinton was denied…This is what Judge Judith Rogers declared when denying the request….

      “Having never been formally ‘accused of criminal conduct’ by the Independent Counsel, Mrs. Clinton, no less than an individual who has been charged but not convicted, is ‘entitled to move on with her life without having the public reminded of her alleged but never proven transgressions.’

      I wonder if Hillary is aware that death by flying glass shards is highly likely in her case.

    Holy and Great Thursday of Great Week

    Troparion (hymn)
    When the glorious Disciples were enlightened at the washing of the feet, then Judas the ungodly one was stricken and darkened with the love of silver. And unto the lawless judges did he deliver Thee, the righteous Judge. O thou lover of money, behold thou him who for the sake of thereof did hang himself; flee from that insatiable soul that dared such things against the Master. O Thou Who art good unto all, Lord, glory be to Thee.

    Kontakion (hymn)
    Taking the Bread into his hands, the betrayer stretcheth them forth secretly and receiveth the price of Him that, with His own hands, fashioned man. And Judas, the servant and sly one, remained incorrigible.

          If I remember correctly, they were probably pretty close to breaking the thresh-hold of that building. (I don’t remember, was that in Europe? Now what if… whatever…. every other one of those freaks was holding, some digital sign I believe, if it was an explosive, that would change the dynamic…..) so….depending…..IMO those people were not in a public area. If that were my property, even that commercial building, they were breaching private property.

    “Baltimore Mayor Bolts — Pugh Missing After FBI-IRS Raid

    Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh (D) has gone missing after the FBI and IRS raided her home, according to Baltimore CBS affiliate WJZ.

    Jason Bentley, Pugh’s spokesman, told the Associated Press on Thursday that he has no clue where the Mayor is, while her defense attorney, Steve Silverman, routed calls to voicemail.

    According to the report, “Pugh was at her home when the raid began, but has since left the state.”

    “Pugh was asked to resign by Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan shortly after the raids.

    “Today, agents for the FBI and the IRS executed search warrants at the mayor’s homes and offices,” said Hogan. “Now, more than ever, Baltimore city needs strong and responsible leadership. Mayor Pugh has lost the public trust. She is clearly not fit to lead. For the good of the city, Mayor Pugh must resign.”

      Excellent speaker, Andy. Thank you for posting this!

      I just saw some info earlier today via naturalnews.com, HIV is way up amongst trans “women” – one out of every seven is infected.

      “According to a CDC “Dear Colleague” letter, of the 14 percent of transgender “women” that are disease-ridden, the vast majority are either African American / black (44 percent) or Hispanic / Latina (26 percent). Conversely, only three percent of transgender “men” have HIV, the letter further reveals.

      As to why these transgenders have disproportionately higher rates of HIV and AIDS, it has nothing to do with their sexual perversion and promiscuity, claims the CDC. No, it’s supposedly because transgender people “face obstacles that make it harder to access HIV services – such as stigma and discrimination, inadequate employment or housing, and limited access to welcoming, supportive health care.”

      yeah, it’s because they don’t have adequate HOUSING that they get the AIDS. Sheesh.

      SATANIC CLOWN WORLD!

          This info may come as a shock to the reader…..Based on self reported surveys done by CDC, gay women report that they have more sex WITH MEN than do straight single women. Same self reported study showed some gay men reported having had as many as …. are you sitting down? as many as TEN THOUSAND PLUS sexual partners. I don’t know if that study is still available at the CDC website…we looked at that one….let me see….it had to be at least 10 years ago. Some of the older CDC studies are an absolute treasure trove of information that really helps to paint a much more full and vivid picture of the nation. Nowadays their studies are basically worthless as their “oh, it’s because of HOUSING” crap, above, demonstrates.

    “California May Ban Schools From Suspending Students For ‘Willful Defiance’

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – The California State Senate voted to ban schools and principals from suspending students for “willful defiance” of teachers, staff, and administrators.

    The Senate approved SB 419 Monday by a vote of 30-8. It moves to the Assembly next.

    A similar bill was vetoed by Governor Jerry Brown last legislative session.

    Under the new version (Senate Bill 419), students in grades 4-8 wouldn’t be suspended for disrupting school activities or willfully defying school authorities, including teachers and staff. The bill would also ban schools from suspending students in grades 9-12 for the same thing until January 1, 2025. The law would apply to both public and charter schools.”

    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.
