On the contrary, the videos of Rabbi Mordechai Friedman and Pastor Gino Jennings have everything to do with this particular “news brief”. The above written text goes into great detail about an Arabic video handed to someone.
“One need not understand Arabic to appreciate the intensity of Nihari’s hate: watch the video starting at minute 2:15 and see the gesticulating cleric issue his curse while striking the floor with a stick, hurling a picture, and banging on the wall.”
HC, I take seriously any extremist, whether they are secular or religious. Should you look at the photographs behind the rabbi you will see some of the shining stars of the ultra right orthodox community, eg Meir Kahane and Baruch Goldstein.
“Pastor hammers home message”
I thought I would offer a link which has Pastor Gino Jennings from Truth of God Ministries (Philadelphia) hammering home a message regarding idol worship. Each time the pastor hits the statue of St … [Plus]
Rabbi Mordechai Friedman has made a number of videos which come under the heading “Judaism - The Series”. I offer two video links showing the style of this New York rabbi who is not permitted to enter the State of Israel.
Dear Jesus, help us to spread Your fragrance everywhere we go. Flood our souls with Your spirit and life. Penetrate and possess our whole being so utterly that our lives may only be a radiance of Yours. Shine through us and be so in us that every soul we come in contact with may feel Your presence in our souls.
Let them look up, and see no longer us, but only Jesus! Stay with us and then we will begin to shine as You shine, so to shine as to be a light to others.
“What think you? If a man have an hundred sheep, andone of them should go astray: doth he not leave the ninety-nine in the mountains, and go to seek that which is gone astray? And if it so be that he find it: Amen I say to you, he rejoiceth more for that, than for the ninety-nine that went not astray. Even so itis not the will of your Father, who is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.”
Louella, I am glad that I follow a Shepherd who cares for the one lost sheep as He does for the other ninety-nine.
Ireland does have a small Catholic population compared to the 136 million Catholics in Brazil, but since when did the smaller parts of the body of Christ no longer matter?
If I had one wish for the Irish Catholic Church, I would like to see all the Irish Bishops / Vicar Generals annually walk bare foot up the hill of Croagh Patrick to atone for their predecessors handling of … [Plus]
Magnificat anima mea Dominum, et exsultavit spiritus meus in Deo salvatore meo, quia respexit humilitatem ancillae suae. Ecce enim ex hoc beatam me dicent omnes generationes, quia fecit mihi magna, qui potens est, et sanctum nomen eius, et misericordia eius in progenies et progenies timentibus eum. Fecit potentiam in brachio suo, dispersit superbos mente cordis sui; deposuit potentes de sede et exaltavit humiles; esurientes implevit bonis et divites dimisit inanes. Suscepit …[Plus]
“A good Christian should be humble as was Jesus Christ, who knelt down to wash the feet of His apostles. He washed even Judas’ feet, although He knew that the traitor was going to betray Him. The true Christian should consider himself to be the least among othersand the servant of all.”
AaronBrennan, the news brief addresses the subject of how to receive Holy Communion on the tongue. As stated in my first post on this thread, I have never received communion on the hand - and have no desire to receive it differently.
My reason for posting the quotation from the golden mouth of Saint John Chrysostom was for visitors to read some of the most sublime words ever spoken on Holy Communion.
I could go into far greater depth into the historical nature and symbolism of those golden … [Plus]
“He mingles Himself with each one of the faithful through the mysteries. He feeds with Himself those whom He has begotten, and he does not farm them out to another, and thus he also persuades you again that He has taken your flesh. Let us not, then, be remiss, since we have been counted worthy of so much love, of so much honour.Do you not see the babies, how eagerly they graspthe breast, how impetuously they fix their lips uponthe nipple? Let us similarly approach this table, and the nipple o … [Plus]
AaronBrennan, the main reason I am interested in the above quote is that there are over 30 quotations in circulation that have been misattributed to Blessed Mother Teresa and many mutations can be found in other European languages. If you could supply a book / internet reference it would be greatly appr … [Plus]
AaronBrennan, thank you for taking the time to reply to my post on the subject of communion in the hand. I am most interested in the above words attributed to Mother Teresa, would you be able to provide a reference that I can access?
I have never received Holy Communion in the hand, and have no desire to do so. Mother Teresa did acknowledge that receiving Holy Communion in the hand was permitted, although Blessed Mother Teresa preferred the Missionaries of Charity to receive Holy Communion on the tongue. As for it being a sin to … [Plus]
Señor Jesús, te damos gracias por haber llamado a la vida, Beato Ceferino. Él quiso ser útil a su gente, abrazando tu Evangelio y tomando cada día su cruz para seguirte en los humildes hechos de la vida cotidiana. Te pedimos por su intercesión que te acuerdes de los que todavía peregrinamos en este mundo. Amén.
SboC, I was reading your posts and came across the words “Islam is a Christian heresy” possibly being attributed to Saint Thomas Aquinas by “Philosopher”. Hopefully, he will reference the original source for this unusual quotation.
(good to see you back online after the Hong Kong storms)
The abbey was dissolved at the end of the first phase of the revolution (nobility versus bourgeoisie), and the destruction of the abbey commenced at the beginning of the second phase of the revolution (bourgeois versus proletariat).
The abbey was dissolved 1792, and destruction commenced in 1793. Religious services were resumed in 1802, and the restoration of the “Cathédrale royale de Saint-Denis” commenced in 1806. ACL, I hope this is helpful.
