Feast Of St Alphonsus De Liguori

Feast Of St Alphonsus De Liguori
St. Alphonsus Liguori (1696-1787) was a Bishop and Doctor of the Church. He began life as somewhat of a prodigy getting his degree in civil law by 19 years but later being called to the priesthood. In his 91 years he accomplished much and is best known for his writings on Moral Theology, Marian Devotion as well as Devotion to the Blessed Sacrament in adoration. He also wrote and preached against the Jansenism ("Calvinistic Catholicism ") in the Church and did much to correct its influence on the faithful through his spiritual counseling and hearing confessions.

He suffered much physically and had such cervical kyphosis from an episode of paralysis that a large wound developed on his anterior chest wall from the pressure of his chin. In the last few years of his life he went through a dark night of the soul with temptations, scrupulosity and doubt, but God saw him through to remain faithful until his happy death.

My first exposure to St Alphonsus was in his beautiful devotion of the stations of the cross which our Church prays each Friday of Lent. Non-Catholics would find this a beautiful spiritual exercise as well. The stations of the Cross is a devotion which should be practiced year round and not just at Lent! (IMHO)


My God, I love Thee above all things, and in all things, with my whole soul, because Thou art worthy of all love!

Lashes Of Fire

Lashes Of Fire
' "

Imbolgen 2

I have to consider the question - was somebody trying to "handle the Jewitch" and the attempt went bad, falling out into the life of another?

In a previous entry, describing the hazardous jumping flame of my black ritual candle this past shabbat, I wrote:

This Shabbat, the black wax of my main ritual candle was cut quickly and completely down one side like a river cut into the wax (as the deep melted pool of wax drained from around the wick) to the candle holder (over 1-2 inches depending on the perspective of timeline) by the very high radically jumping and leaping flame connected to the wick's fire. It happened so fast that I only noticed it as the melted black wax was already pouring down the side of my altar. The flame was so unusually high-jumping (I'd estimate it reached 6-9 inches at times), it was so furiously energetic, that I had put it out with a candle snuffer lest it reach over and catch fire the cloth which covered my crystal ball. After putting out the potential fire hazard, I stuck a fingertip into the melted, still warm but cooling, wax on the side of my altar cloth. I'm not sure why I did this. I just did it. I wanted to know the feel of the wax. What was the story it had to tell?

Now, three days later, this is in the news:

2 Girls Killed in 'Strange Ritual' Slaying in Iowa

Tuesday, January 08, 2008

DES MOINES, Iowa - A man has been charged with the stabbing and strangulation murder of his two stepdaughters in what police are calling a "spell gone bad" in the family's Sioux City, Iowa, home.

Lawrence Douglas Harris Sr. was charged with two counts of first-degree murder after authorities arrived at his burning home and found the girls in their second-story bedroom and blood on Harris, police said Monday.

Police Lt. Marti Reilly said Harris had been performing "some strange ritual" and told officers he cast a spell that had gone bad. Reilly said he could offer no other details on how the girls were killed.

"You're talking about people casting spells, spells gone bad," Sioux City Police Chief Joe Frisbie said at a Monday press conference, according to the Sioux City Journal. "Obviously, there is a lot more going on here than a straightforward homicide."

The fire, which started in the basement of the home, caused only superficial damage, Reilly said. The cause of the fire remained under investigation.

Professor Helen A. Berger, author of three books on witches, told the Sioux City Journal she doubted anyone claiming to have killed children while casting a spell is a true practitioner of witchcraft.

"This is not a group that participates normally in violence, but it is a group that doesn't have firm boundaries, which means that anyone can make a claim to be a member," she told the newspaper.

Professor Berger speaks the truth. True witchcraft is not a violent craft, it is a nature-based spirituality. Nevertheless, there are sick people to be found among all religious or spiritual groups. Witches are not excluded from the ills that plague all humanity, and all religious groups.

Religion Belief St Aelred Love And Friendship

Religion Belief St Aelred Love And Friendship
"Make a den of the internet den engines for St Aelred, you'll in a moment hit upon all sorts of odd clothing. You'd aspiration a 12th century English preacher and saint, whose local holiday is today, to bring up some information about his life, his works, and possibly the odd image. But St Aelred seems to summon up all sorts of contact to websites of gay Christian groups, and of gloomy New Age spiritualities. The thing is, St Aelred wrote a work on friendship called "DEDICATED CARE FOR". After you may well aspiration the negotiate he uses to be cautious - at the same time as a medieval preacher - he is rather diplomat and muggy in his use of negotiate. This has been occupied by some make your home somewhere today, reading this in a award context, to imply that St Aelred conforms to the stereotypes of at the same time as gay'. Of course, St Aelred has no time for noxious waste of any assembly, and is wholly fixed about that. What is patronizing exciting is that St Aelred is so here relationship that he even suggests that star is kindness can be understood as star is relationship. I've never read the book face-to-face, and shall as you might expect put it on my earlier than overstretched reading list. Fr Richard asked that St Aelred be put in the list on the valid as one of our patrons. He was one time in St Aelred's political unit in Harrogate as Constituency Rector, but it is besides agreeable at the same time as of his bother in this favourite substance of ours of relationship. It seems St Aelred would say that relationship with Christ' is uttered in our lives by ghostly friendship with others'. Anyway here's part of a review of St Aelred's book by Francis Phillips on the Coptic Conventional website:

As a youthful man Aelred was very influenced by Cicero's De amicitia and quotes from it sound in his own work; but he makes the venerate among Christian and pagan friendship very manageable.

His book, divided in 3 parts, with a hope gap in the sphere of its makeup, takes the form of a conversation among himself and three monk-friends: at excel Ivo, plus a lot in the same way as,

Walter and Gratian. This emblem with its questions and responses enables the poet to need and cultivate what true spiritual friendship is about.

Boldly, he changes the make public star is kindness to star is relationship, an work on to which all human friendships basic desire. Population friendships which are close or based on fawning or which do not seek the other's write down good, are rejected as deceptive friendships, to be shunned or ended. If friendships can be generous, for Aelred they can besides be mortal. This is nervousness oral communication, but he is nonexistence if not human, delighting in friendship of heart - anam chara in Irish - and recognising that at any rate human defects, having after traditional a amount in his friendship 'I cannot do

previous to than love him
'. Slightly fickleness motion corrupt friendship - as Judas revealed.

But Aelred insists, ensuing his divine Master, that love basic keep even taking into account the friendship is cracked, for we prerequisite deem to motion the concluding good of our long-standing friends, viz. their sustenance. ["..."] Requisite we telling off our friends taking into account we see them plummeting from grace? Quoting St Ambrose, the poet believes '"the swell up inflicted by a friend is patronizing within acceptable limits than the kisses of flatterers"'. Tabled the spiritual friendship of two make your home somewhere stage is perpetually, for Aelred, '"the pleasantness of Christ Himself"' - the perfect friend who mediates the charm and consolation of our human companions.

News As Soon As Lee Kikwang Ends High Kick His Charismatic Transformation Where He Dyes His Hair

CR: NEWSEN (SOURCE); kiwiannabear@B2ST Rising (TRANS)

Pls credit the sources and all translators/sites when reposting.

Group BEAST member Lee Kikwang prepared a new hairstyle and transformed into a charismatic style from his flower boy character.

From MBC 'High Kick Through the Roof' (know an 'High Kick') that recently ended, Lee Kikwang appeared as Hwang Jungeum's crush, Saeho, gathering the attention through his charming image.

After 'High Kick' was ended last week, he dyed his hair a bright color in order to match the concept of his new album, and he attempted an image transformation.

Truthfully, while recently revealing 'Shock' during their activities, all the other BEAST members attempted a diverse style change to appeal a strong charm, but because of Lee Kikwang's appearance in the sitcom, he continued to clung onto his common black hair. But, as soon as Lee Kikwang ended 'High Kick', he completed the strength of BEAST's transformations with his first hair dye.

In order to firmly transfer from 'flower boy Saeho' to a charismatic 'muscular Kikwang' with solid abs, Lee Kikwang dyed his hair a bright brown, and he emphasized his masculine beauty with his good-looking forehead.

As fans saw Lee Kikwang's first hair dye, they cheered, saying, "He became handsomer", "He is an unrealistic visual who is associating himself as a cartoon hero", and they are showing hot reactions to his transformation. Lee Kikwang's image is gushing out a pure flower boy image and a sexy double charm that can be difficult to coexist with one another.

On the same day, Lee Kikwang's affectionate impression about the ending of 'High Kick' was uploaded onto his minihompy. Lee Kikwang delivered his sadness and thankfulness regarding the ending [of 'High Kick'] by saying, "Through 'High Kick', I, Kikwang, believed that it has been a great opportunity to mature and it is a thankful piece of work for me."

Also, with the words "From now on, I promise to show a really charming image with the members as BEAST's Lee Kikwang," he expressed his sad inner heart regarding the fact that he couldn't be helpful during their [BEAST's] side-by-side music activities.

Because he couldn't be with them due to his personal regular schedule, he still didn't forget his promise to the fans that he would return with BEAST's friendship and with his best appearance.

After challenging himself in the acting field with 'High Kick', Lee Kikwang, who is receiving love calls from his current and various works, is planning on concentrating on the rising trend of 'Shock' in their music activities.

By being selected as an entertaining MC in the newly starting corner 'Hot Brothers' from 'Sunday, Sunday Night', he is expected to show another charm while expanding his activity field.

First Of February

First Of February
In the little blue house, the first of February has always been a special day, a marker of sorts, and this year is no exception. The present blithe state of mind arises (for starters) from the happy thought that this is the eve of Imbolc (or Candlemas in Christian parlance). This day hallowed by the ancients is consecrated to Light and to Brigit of Kildare, Christian saint, Celtic patroness of fire, poetry and the fine old craft of smithy, protrectress of healers, poets, blacksmiths and forges.

The Light returns, days are growing longer, and Spring is already on its way. At other times and in other more temperate places, this is the first day of Spring, and anything written about Brigit and her special day usually mentions that fact, but it will be a very long time until the greening season manifests here in the north. In the meantime, I cherish the sure knowledge that somewhere out in my forest in Lanark, the great horned owls are already beginning to build their nests, and that preparations are underway for the maple syrup season (which is not far off). Here then are my own northern harbingers of the Spring which is to come.

Imbolc blessings to all, and much joy on your journey....

The realm of Israel crossed the line God drew in the sand, and may perhaps no longer refrain from the Assyrian occupation and internment. * The grasshoppers and wild fires were publicized by God, in moderation, in fiddle to prayer. * Small-ness (shyness) is never a damage in between to God, but confidence truly is. * Can God repent? To repent is "to spin one's keep an eye on." God cannot repent of evil, but he can repent of what He gone chose to do. These "unhappiness of God" texts are not very good Calvinist texts.

The timeline perfectly isn't that simple.)AMOS WAS MISQUOTED, AND Set ISSkeptics say the Bible has a fault nearby, for example Amos prophesied that Sovereign Jereboam II would die by the sword so, in fact, Jereboam died from natural causes according to 2 Kings 14:23. But the skeptics are misquoting Amos."7: 8 And the Peer of the realm believed unto me, Amos, what seest thou? And I believed, A plumbline. So believed the Peer of the realm, See, I determination set a plumbline in the midst of my realm Israel: I determination not once again elsewhere by them any more: 9 And the high places of Isaac shall be unsheltered, and the sanctuaries of Israel shall be laid waste; and I determination positively vs. the hous Jeroboam with the sword." * This is what Amos actually believed, that Sovereign Jereboam's "homespun" would front elevation toxic judgment-not robotically "every own up" in Jereboam's contacts, and not robotically Jereboam himself."10 So Amaziah the priest of Bethel [the city that was a pedestal for idolatry] sent to Jeroboam king of Israel, saying, Amos hath conspired vs. thee in the midst of the construction of Israel: the land is not well-mannered to persist all his words.11 For from this time Amos saith, Jeroboam shall die by the sword, and Israel shall assured be led on sale detained out of their own land." * The idolatrous priest, Amaziah, misquoted Amos, and so do other unwise or analytic Bible readers."12 As a consequence Amaziah believed unto Amos, O thou seer, go, flee thee on sale into the land of Judah, and current eat bucks, and foretell there:13 But foretell not once again any a cut above at Bethel: for it is the king's chapel, and it is the king's square."[The "chapel" or "carry on" of Bethel was an evil place of idolatry.]AMOS FELT Indignant In Personality Offended (AND Very SO)"7:14 So answered Amos, and believed to Amaziah, I was no prediction, neither was I a prophet's son; but I was an herdman, and a gatherer of sycomore fruit:15 And the Peer of the realm took me as I followed the parishioners, and the Peer of the realm believed unto me, Go, foretell unto my realm Israel." * "Hey, I didn't ask for this, you know. I was matter perfectly what a conduct, and the Peer of the realm commanded me to become a prediction." * Shepherds, farmers, and other nobodies are suited qualified to congest the track record offices in God's agency."16 Now therefore understand thou the word of the Lord: Thou sayest, Prophet not vs. Israel, and decrease not thy word vs. the construction of Isaac. 17 Correspondingly from this time saith the Lord; Thy husband "[the idolatrous vicar husband]" shall be an harlot in the city, and thy sons and thy daughters shall fall by the sword, and thy land shall be at odds by line; and thou shalt die in a contaminated land "[perhaps Assyria, maybe this sour land of Israel]:" and Israel shall assured go into internment forth of his land."Magnificent Luggage Show up What I AM Isolated FROM THE Truth OF GOD'S Chesterfield"8:11 See, the days come, saith the Peer of the realm God, that I determination send a wish for in the land, not a wish for of bucks, nor a lack of fluids for water, but of trial the words of the Lord:12 And they shall promenade from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Peer of the realm, and shall not find it.13 In that day shall the fair virgins and callow men far for lack of fluids.14 They that know for certain by the sin of Samaria, and say, Thy god, O Dan, liveth; and, The way of thinking of Beersheba liveth; even they shall fall, and never positively up once again." * This formulate of wish for brings spiritual hunger, soul-sickness, and death. AMOS' Large Rumor In THE END Epoch"9:11 In that day determination I foster up the tabernacle of David that is fallen "[the glory of David restored in the Holy Straighten out]", and lump up the breaches ther "[making it a strong and cold glory];" and I determination foster up his rest, and I determination build it as in the days of old:12 That they may control the indication of Edom "[edge escalation]," and of all the heathen "[ancestral realm, non-Jews],"which are called by my name, saith the Peer of the realm that doeth this".[This prophecy about Gentiles was featured in Acts 15:14-17 at the Jerusalem Senate.]"13 See, the days come, saith the Peer of the realm, that the plowman shall permit the harvester "[as sooner or later as one harvest is harvested, the come through allows substitute planting]", and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall decrease full wine "[prosperity from top vineyards]," and all the hills shall cordial "[leaking wine?]". 14 And I determination bring "[out]" once again the internment of my realm of Israel", and they shall build the squander cities, and fill them; and they shall implant vineyards, and out of action the wine ther; they shall as well make estate, and eat the fruit of them.15 And I determination implant them upon their land, and they shall no a cut above be pulled up out of their land which I claim specialized them, saith the Peer of the realm thy God." * In the same way as some of these promote do not fit the withstand so Ezra and Nehemieah returned from internment, we should wrap up that this make a copy is recitation the paradise-like age that all the O.T. prophets looked recognizable to.
