Morning Chat 5 AM

Morning Friends & Neighbors! Happy Tuesday! Hope you can drop by for a chat this morning. My habit is usually to hang out until 5:30 - later if there active conversations and staying no later than about 5:57 when I head to the Bavarian Smokehaus across the road for fellowship & bullship.πŸ˜‰

Blessed Feast of St. Joseph - Image & Morning Offering

Editorial Comment: Generally as a whole I am not crazy about these types of prayers. By types, I mean the old school flowery language type of prayer. The language is not really appealing to me, but it seemed fitting for today's feast. I do like that the intention is for those things at which we often fail, which is something we should all consider as we ask God's help in overcoming some of our deep rooted habits or tendencies.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Receive me, dear and chosen Father, and the offering of every
movement of my body and soul, which I desire to present
through thee to my blessed Lord.

Purify all! Make all a perfect holocaust! May every pulsation
of my heart be a Spiritual Communion, every look and
thought an act of love, every action a sweet sacrifice,
every word an arrow of Divine love, every step
an advance toward Jesus, every visit to Our Lord as
pleasing to God as the errands of Angels, every thought
of thee, dear Saint, ...

A Morning Prayer

God of the city, God of the tenement and the houses of the rich, God of the subway and the night club, God of the cathedral and the streets, God of the sober and the drunk, the junkie and the stripper, the gambler and the good family man;
Dear God, help us to see the world and its children through your eyes, and to love accordingly. - Monica Furlong

A recent discovery

Greetings friends & neighbors! Someone recently brought up non-alcoholic gin in a conversation. While I have generally found non-alcoholic drinks to be a poor substitute to the actual drinks, my recent discovery of Heineken 0.0 has given me some hope that there might be a good market for zero alcohol drinks out there. While I still appreciate that warm feeling that a little alcohol gives me, I would be very happy finding zero alcohol drinks that taste good. Time will tell if Monday Zero-Alcohol Gin will fill the bill.

A Prayer for our cities

In anticipation of more peaceful protest when justice doesn't agree with the mob or the main narrative of victimization and exploitation peddled by the enemies of reconciliation and understanding - The Media.

O God, grant us a vision of our city, fair as she might be; a city of justice, where none shall prey on others; a city of plenty, where vice and poverty shall cease to fester; a city of brotherhood, where all success shall be founded on service, and honor shall be given to nobleness alone; a city of peace, where order shall not rest on force, but on the love of all for the city, the great mother of the common life and weal.
Hear thou, O Lord, the silent prayer of all our hearts as we each pledge our time and strength and thought to speed the day of her coming beauty and righteousness. Amen. - WALTER RAUSCHENBUSCH

BHC on 2nd Class Citizenry

Thoughts on a comment made by Mike Crenovich & Tim Pool. BHC- Black Hat Commentary is one of my political rants - if not your cup of tea - DON'T listen. If however it is, enjoy. 😊 I am all about the free exchange of ideas here and critiques on any topic presented. Nothing is out of bounds for discussion if done with thoughtfulness and a desire for understanding another's point of view. If disagreement makes you anxious or nervous, don't venture there. It is not worth losing any peace of mind over things posted on the internet.
If a conversation gets heated or any of us resort to name calling, personal attacks or butt-hurtery - I will just close down that post or remove it. Love you all - but I don't love the potential pettiness any of us can unknowingly or knowingly be dragged into embracing when our glow-screen anger/courage/stupidity gets ginned up for a "fight."

Morning Prayer for Wednesday

Deliver us, O God, from following the fashions of the day in our thinking. Save us from the worship of science, and grant that, giving thee thanks for the skill of the scientist, we may be preserved from the abuse of his discoveries. Help us never to confuse any creature with the Creator, or man with God. May we acknowledge man’s reason as thy gift, and, being freed from all false hopes and misplaced trust, find in thee our hope and our salvation; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

The Books of Psalms is a rich source of prayer for Christians, it is part of our daily prayer as priests & religious. Enjoy!

Psalm 67

O God, be gracious and bless us
and let your face shed its light upon us.
So will your ways be known upon earth
and all nations learn your saving help.

Let the peoples praise you, O God;
let all the peoples praise you.

Let the nations be glad and exult
for you rule the world with justice.
With fairness you rule the peoples,
you guide the nations on earth.

Let the peoples praise you, O God;
let all the peoples praise you.

The earth has yielded its fruit
for God, our God, has blessed us.
May God still give us his blessing
till the ends of the earth revere him.

Sunday Morning Prayer

Our pilgrimage on earth cannot be exempt from trial. We progress by means of trial. No one knows himself except through trial, or receives a crown except after victory, or strives except against an enemy or temptations.

The one who cries from the ends of the earth is in anguish, but is not left on his own. Christ chose to foreshadow us, who are his body, by means of his body, in which he has died, risen and ascended into heaven, so that the members of his body may hope to follow where their head has gone before. He made us one with him when he chose to be tempted by Satan.

We have heard in the gospel how the Lord Jesus Christ was tempted by the devil in the wilderness. Certainly Christ was tempted by the devil. In Christ you were tempted, for Christ received his flesh from your nature, but by his own power gained life for you; he suffered insults in your nature, but by his own power gained glory for you; therefore, he suffered temptation in your nature, but by his own power gained ...

Accepting God's will

While taking a walk by yourself, or when you are alone at some other time, turn your eye to God’s universal will and see how he wills all the works of his mercy and justice, in heaven and on earth and under the earth. Then with profound humility, accept, praise, and then bless this sovereign will, which is entirely holy, just, and beautiful.

Turn your eye next to God’s particular will, by which he loves his own and accomplishes in them different works of consolation and tribulation. Ponder this a while, as you consider not only the variety of his consolations, but above all the trials suffered by the good. Then, with great humility, accept, praise, and bless the whole of this will.

Finally, consider this will in your own person, in all that befalls you for good or ill, and in all that can happen to you, except sin. Then, accept, praise, and bless all this, and declare your intention always to honor, cherish, and adore this sovereign will, confiding to his mercy and giving him ...

At that moment

A prayer for the morning, but not a morning prayer. More of a perspective on the bridge that we all must face one day.

When the signs of age begin to mark my body
(and still more when they touch my mind);
when the ill that is to diminish me or carry me off
strikes from without
or is born within me;
when the painful moment comes in which I
suddenly waken
to the fact that I am ill or growing old;
and above all at the last moment
when I feel I am losing hold of myself
and am absolutely passive in the hands
of the great unknown forces that have formed me;
in all those dark moments, O God,
grant that I may understand that it is You
(provided only my faith is strong enough)
who are painfully parting the fibers of my being
in order to penetrate to the very marrow of my substance
and bear me away within yourself. β€” Teilhard de Chardin

Sunday Morning Reflection

Taken from this morning's Office of Readings

From a commentary on the Diatessaron by Saint Ephrem, deacon
God’s word is an inexhaustible spring of life

Lord, who can comprehend even one of your words? We lose more of it than we grasp, like those who drink from a living spring. For God’s word offers different facets according to the capacity of the listener, and the Lord has portrayed his message in many colors, so that whoever gazes upon it can see in it what suits him. Within it he has buried manifold treasures, so that each of us might grow rich in seeking them out.

The word of God is a tree of life that offers us blessed fruit from each of its branches. It is like that rock which was struck open in the wilderness, from which all were offered spiritual drink. As the Apostle says: They ate spiritual food and they drank spiritual drink.

And so whenever anyone discovers some part of the treasure, he should not think that he has exhausted God’s word. Instead he should feel that ...

Evening Poem

It is a bit sing-songie for me, but I like the message in it. Have a good evening all.

THESE I WISH

To live a life of cheer
To laugh when all seems dark
To shed a tender tear
When beauty calls, to hark!

To speak a word of hope
To love, to work, to pray
To bring a touch of joy
To all I meet each day.

I would be glad, glad, GLAD!
And live with all my heart
That when I come to die
I may have left my part.

The doctrine of human equality reposes on this: that there is no man really clever who has not found that he is stupid. There is no big man who has not felt small. Some men never feel small; but these are the few men who are. - G.K. Chesterton

From the Amish - a Morning Prayer

O Lord, almighty God and heavenly Father, you did not give us life and set us in this world merely so we would nourish ourselves with grief and work until we return to the dust from whence we came. Instead, you ordained our lives so that we should fear you and love you, and cleave to you with all our hearts. Even as your divine grace gave us the day to work, so you gave us the night to rest. Under your Fatherly shield of protection, we have mercifully enjoyed this rest, and for that we humbly praise and bless you with deep gratitude. Amen.

An Evening prayer

THE CANDLE

Put a candle in your window
When the night is dark with storm.
It will welcome any stranger;
Keep friends and family warm.

When you see someone in sorrow;
Just let your candle shine
From your soul and from your window
It will be a cheerful sign.

Always place a candle
Where the world can see its lightβ€”
The glow will lift a sad heart
And brighten every night.

New Moderators for @ Padre's

Greetings friends & visitors! I have asked @THK233 and @DragonHawk to be moderators along with me of our community. My main reason for the invitation was their freedom to organize chats if the community desires them. I am very happy with many small chats that are easier for me to follow rather than large chats the scroll by so quickly I can't read anything. That is how chats often are on the Rubin Report when they occur. I am sure other things will come into the hopper as time passes.

Tim Pool is one of those other finds in 2020 for which I am thankful. I am thankful to have found persons on the other side of the fence that I trust as being honest about their bias or moderate in their bias. I listen to plenty of commentary from the conservative side of the fence, but not much from the other side that I consider very credible. I don't want to just listen to those with whom I agree, but I don't want to listen to any that have their view so tainted by TDS that that can't hear their own bias.

Dominion this evening anytime after 5 but before 9 Pm Central.

Anyone interested in a few games? Also is anyone interested in using Roll20 for voice and/or video chat? If you are interested let me know in the comments.

Here is a link for any who would want to join the Roll20 server to use voice/video while playing. Voice seems workable for game play, video for intros & departures if desired.

Fun with selfies

Generally I hate selfies - but when I wear hats I like them a little bit more.

Edited: Spooky me moved to the end. Apparently no one liked it as much as I did.

Fr. St. Fracnis de Sales - A morning thought

Humility makes us accept pains with meekness, knowing that we deserve them, and good things with gratitude, knowing that we do not. Every day we ought to make some act of humility, or speak heartfelt words of humility, words that lower us to the level of a servant, and words that serve others, however modestly, either in our homes or in the world.

Padre's Favorite Game

Hands down, I have played more games of this than anything else. RPGs might rival Dominion for time investment since hands generally go quickly.

From Wikipedia:
Dominion is a deck-building card game created by Donald X. Vaccarino and published by Rio Grande Games. Each player uses a separate deck of cards and draw their hands from their own decks, not those of others. Players use the cards in their hands to either perform actions or buy select cards from a common pool of card stacks. The player with the most victory points at the end wins. The game has a "light" medieval theme, with card names that reference pre-industrial, monarchical, and feudal social structures.

The base game is free to play on-line and then of course there are expansions. I have been playing pretty exclusively with a friend of mine from St. Louis for the past 12 years on various permeations of the game. I tend to play exclusively with him, but have a few other online friends I game with from time to time. If ...
