24 November 2014. Christmas Lent Begins on 28 November… Here’s “Angel of God, My Holy Guardian”

01 Angel Devils Tussling for Soul

______________________________

Christmas Lent begins on 28 November… American Thanksgiving is on 27 November this year. Customary usage here in the States recognises that people have “leftovers” and it’s accepted that you’ll use ‘em up and eat ‘em down… no real priest considers that sinful. The video has prayers to the Guardian Angel. Always remember… Lent isn’t an end in itself, it’s a preparation for a time of FEASTING. NEVER forgot that.

A link to a happier and different time… but it wasn’t perfect! However, Metropolitans Anastassy Gribanovsky and Leonty Turkevich kept the peace and kept the gnarly shit down. Can we recapture the mindset? Can we build a united Church? I’d say so… and our forebears would’ve urged it, too. That they may be as one…

Imperial Orthodox Palestine Society to Create White Book Commemorating All the Christians Killed and Tortured in the Middle East

00 The face of the Syrian opposition. 27.10.13

______________________________

On Friday, Yelena Agapova, Vice-Chairman of the Imperial Orthodox Palestine Society (IOPS), stated that the IOPS would create a White Book containing the names of all the Christians killed and tortured by the Islamic State (IS) terrorist organisation and other radical militant groups, saying at a press conference at Rossiya Segodnya International Information Agency, “The IOPS community centre for the protection of Christians in the Middle East and North Africa has begun preparing a White Book, where we give the names of victims and glaring instances of harassment and persecution of Christians, which we’d pass to UN structures and present for the judgement of the world public”. She spoke of the situation in the Iraqi city of Mosul, which now has almost no Christians, despite the fact that under former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein they accounted for 40 percent of the population. Agapova said, “Today, for the first time in 16 centuries, there are no worship services in Mosul’s churches”. She stated that IS militants forced local Christians either to convert to Islam, or pay a special tax of 250 USD (11,450 Roubles. 1,530 Renminbi. 15,400 INR. 280 CAD. 288 AUD. 202 Euros. 160 UK Pounds) per month for each family member, or leave the city. The IS, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) or the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), has fought the Syrian government since 2012. In June 2014, the group extended its attacks to northern and western Iraq, declaring a caliphate over the territory that it controls.

21 November 2014. From Happier Days… “A Rusin Prayer”… with Fr Dmitri Sidor

00 Fr Dmitri Sidor. 08.04.14

******

_______________________________

At present, Fr D D Sidor, the leader of the Rusin nationalists, is under house-arrest by the Uniate junta. I fear for his safety… after all, history tells us that the Uniate pigs murdered Blessed Gavriil Kostelnik (and here) and that they were accomplices in the murder of St Maksim Sandovich, along with being complicit in the many killed at Talerhof. These people showed their mettle in the past… they were murderers, thugs, collaborationists, and terrorists then… so they remain, today. Then, they whored for Nazi Germany… today, they whore for the USA… what’s the difference? The Uniates will gladly sell out their homeland to Western interests so long as they get to indulge their “Consciousness” (and get to be the local bully boys of the West)… it tells you much of their character as an institution (along with their running-dog partners, the “Ukrainian Orthodox”). I know that the world is often very crank, indeed… but do we truly deserve to see such depths of depravity?

Pray for Fr Dmitri… his life is in danger so long as he remains in the power of the Uniates. God do preserve him and us from the blight of the Unia…
