    The Jesus Prayer of Orthodox Christians (based on what the one condemned one hanging next to Christ said): “Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me, a sinner.”

    It is already just past noon today — cold, snowy, drear — somehow appropriate for this most profoundly sad three hours in the liturgical year. Our house altar has no candle lit right now. I remember our church covering all the icons and statues and even the Crucifix in purple cloth, the altar was stripped bare, the tabernacle emptied, candles extinguished — to show how empty the world is without Christ. It was such a moving event (the Good Friday liturgy held at 3 pm) — I weep just typing this.

    Obama uses executive power to move gun control agenda forward

    Of course he is. Why do we even need Congress? Obummer acts like a king and gets away with it.

  6. Cadbury Easter Eggs are now halal. Good to know. Cadbury lists 71 halal products, but they have no kosher products. Huh.
