Friday Afternoon Matinee

Had a checkup today. The good news is, my pacemaker’s doing fine. The bad news is the day ain’t over. Had lunch with DW at the tres chic Taco Bell. (I have a weakness for gordita supremes.)

There is the usual cascade of items today, but there are so many videos I thought I’d post some here and leave the heady stuff for the comment section.

The Super Bowl is Sunday, in case you haven’t heard. Not decided if I’m going to post any of the hopelessly overpriced ads. The New England Patriots’ owner, Robert Kraft, the coach, Bill Bellichek, and the star quarterback, Tom Brady are all friends of the President. Brady is getting all kinds of grief and even people who hate football are certain to tune in, in the hopes of seeing him get hurt for his unforgivable behavior.

To cleanse the palate, imagine archaeologists thousands of years from now sifting through the digital rubble of our civilization in search of scant bits of cultural data — and finding this. They would probably conclude that it’s newsreel footage from an esoteric tribal war fought long ago by lunatic warrior-poets, speaking ecstatic gibberish as they slaughter each other.

Which, pretty much, yeah.

Relatedly, how many times this weekend will various media remind us that Tom Brady is palsies with the president and that that’s a doubleplusungood thing to be?

“Freedom of religion is a sacred right.”

2017_01-trumps-at-prayer

Feb 2, 2017: During his speech at the national prayer breakfast this morning, President Donald Trump called freedom of religion a sacred right and promised that his administration will do everything in its power to protect religious liberty.

That includes getting rid of the Johnson amendment that prohibits pastors and churches from speaking out on political issues by making them worry about their nonprofit status being revoked. Trump said that America will flourish “when religious liberty can flourish.”

Crying out to God on Capitol Hill

chaplain-black

Photo: Senate Chaplain Barry Black, a former Rear Admiral in the U.S. Navy, is the first African-American and the first Seventh-day Adventist to be elected to the Senate chaplaincy.

Ted Cruz recently held a prayer meeting with conservative pastors and members of Congress to pray against Satan’s power.

They prayed in the Kennedy Caucus Room in the Capitol and in the U.S. Senate chamber.

“We got on our knees… and it sounded almost like a labor room as people were crying out to God for the revival that Chaplain Black believes is coming and that we believe is coming,” Pastor Dave Kistler said.

“To do that in the Senate chamber was an absolutely astounding opportunity,” he added. “And again it puts an exclamation point on the Senate chaplain’s assessment that revival is on the way and may indeed begin in the halls of Congress.”

Update on my health

2016_10-chrissy

I saw my new nephrologist for the first time yesterday. My kidneys are in very bad shape, but he can’t determine best treatment without more tests, one of them that will be extremely unpleasant so prayers would be welcome.  Next appointment is Jan 27th to review results and plan next move.

Most likely thing is my kidneys are permanently damaged, probably by scarring from long-term analgesic use and auto-immune disease.  The point they’re at now is so far gone that they will probably deteriorate to dialysis/transplant arena.  Again, prayers!

I’m trying to keep firmly in mind that God healed my unborn baby from an untreatable, incurable disease and that NOTHING is impossible for Him.  Plus, you know, joining suffering with Jesus on the cross for the salvation of sinners.  Praying hard for humility and all that good stuff.

Anima Christi

I say this medieval prayer every morning.  I really love it and just wanted to share it with all y’all.  The name means “Soul of Christ.”  It is simply the first two words of the prayer in Latin.

Anima Christi

Soul of Christ, sanctify me
Body of Christ, save me
Blood of Christ, inebriate me
Water from the side of Christ, wash me
Passion of Christ, strengthen me
O good Jesus, hear me
Within Thy wounds hide me
Permit me not to be separated from Thee
From the malicious enemy defend me
In the hour of my death call me
And bid me come unto Thee
That I may praise Thee with Thy saints
Forever and ever
Amen

Anima Christi set to music

Gary Sinise serves troops in Kandahar

Mr. Sinise posted this with the photo: “An honor to serve Thanksgiving dinner to our Troops at Kandahar Air Force Base. Sending a special thank you to all who serve. Thanksgiving prayer for our Troops: Thank you, Lord, for the courage and selfless service of our military troops. Thank you for their dedication in the face of difficulties and challenges. Thank you for their families. I pray that all of our servicemen and women will experience Your mercy each day, and that You will provide for their every need. Let them feel your presence with them, and your everlasting love. In Christ’s name, Amen.”

There was a time POTUS did this.  Of course, since it was a Republican POTUS, the snot-faced left made fun of him and said the photos were fake.  They can be such jerks.
