Prince Harry (Potter) is "Henry the Eighth, I AM I AM."

If Prince Harry ends up becoming king, he will be King Henry the Ninth.

*Poof* goes the argument 8)

Yes, I believe the Illuminati engineered HRH Prince Harry ("Hairy") Wales to have red hair, because the twin of Jacob, Esau, was said to come out red and hairy, and the prophet King David is also said to be red or ruddy.  It is the same word for red to describe Esau and David in the Hebrew, Greek, and Latin copies.  HRH Harry is Prince of Wales, and his supposed virgin mother Diana Princess of Wales, because St. David is the patron of Wales and the flag of Wales features a great red dragon :



King David was the eighth.   

Again, Jesse made seven of his sons to pass before Samuel. And Samuel said unto Jesse, The LORD hath not chosen these.  And Samuel said unto Jesse, Are here all thy children? And he said, There remaineth yet the youngest, and, behold, he keepeth the sheep. And Samuel said unto Jesse, Send and fetch him: for we will not sit down till he come hither. And he sent, and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, and withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to. And the LORD said, Arise, anoint him: for this is he. (1 Samuel 16)

The Illuminati are preparing Prince Henry Albert Charles David to be anointed king.  Prince Henry is King Henry the Eighth I AM, I AM, just as David was the eighth, and the beast of the Apocalypse is the eighth king:

And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. (Revelation 17:10-11)

Prince Harry (Potter) is "Henry the Eighth, I AM I AM."

And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?   And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.



The I AM of Harry's Invictus Games is yellow for the sun, because Prince Harry (David) styles himself "Sol Invictus" the Unconquered Sun.  Notice the rays of yellow light emanating from the yellow I AM, just like beams of the sun.

Sol Invictus
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sol_Invictus

"Sol Invictus ("Unconquered Sun") was the official sun god of the later Roman Empire and a patron of soldiers."

Why ought we suppose Prince Harrry has made his Invictus Games all about soldiers, i.e. "wounded warriors"?   Prince Harry is blasphemously declaring himself to be God, the I AM of Exodus 3:14, "Sol Invictius," the unconquered sun.

Why do you think his she-wolf mother Diana engaged in her landmine campaign?  Because the virgin moon goddess Diana is guardian of roads.

St. Augustine
The City of God - Book VIII:

"Although they would have Apollo to be a diviner and physician, they have nevertheless given him a place as some part of the world. They have said that he is also the sun; and likewise they have said that Diana, his sister, is the moon, and the guardian of roads. Whence also they will have her be a virgin, because a road brings forth nothing. They also make both of them have arrows, because those two planets send their rays from the heavens to the earth."

While I don't think you are describing a specific movie here...your version of reality would make a really good flick. 

I hope you do not allow all this to mess with your peace and joy.

To a degree I agree with you that this world is kind of spinning out of control....however, our responsibility in all this, is not to figure out who is who and what is going on....but, in making our little corner of the world good...and godly.  God put you where you are for a reason...bring kindness and joy to where you are.

Never let all this "get" to you.  God is still in charge...no matter what insanity goes on around us.  We may not live another week to see the world explode...we may meet our Maker today....so, focus on self more than on external things.  Don't let it get to you so much.

I wish you peace.

Pretty sad. But, though I'm no Englishman, I doubt there has been a great change from 2011 to 2014. I think political and cultural trends are making people feel less leaned to consider themselves "cultural Christians" and making the irreligious come out of the closet. At least that is what I observe in my country.

They didn't have that far to go; Anglicanism has for quite a long time had a sizeable contingent who were already de facto irreligious.

It was basically an imperial religion worshiping a tribal war deity anyway. Once the empire broke apart, its raison d'etre dissipated.

You forgot the part about royal infertility and dynastic polygamy.   ;D

Just wait, the next generation won't even know who King David was and thus lack any knowledge-base for Western literature. Such a shame I think.

Nah, hack fiction writers will always be stripmining the Bible (and Greek Mythology, and Shakespeare, and Grimm, and...) for the same old ideas.

Dan Brown seems as popular as ever.

This priest seems to really be grinding your gears. You want us to kill him for you?

You're not funny.

I laughed.

Of course you did. I often laugh at the mere insinuation, playful as it is (and I'm giving what's-his-name the benefit of the doubt on that) at the killing of others.  So, I guess you're just as sick and twisted as everyone else here.


If you spent less time being offended by things and more time trying to learn, you might have realised that the practice you describe in the OP is, generally, more common among Slavs.   

I'm not offended, more annoyed. It's a disruption to the service.  Secondly, I asked if any priests did this.  That's how you learn: by asking.  Now, I know that knowledge comes to you directly from your eternal communion with God, but some of us still need to do learn things the old fashioned way.

I suppose it could be seen as a disruption, sure.  Then again, wherever I've seen this practiced, the people enthusiastically respond (I've certainly never heard anyone complain about it).  There isn't a lot of vocal congregational participation in EO liturgy in American parishes and monasteries.  Being able to respond "Truly he is risen!" during liturgical services is a notable departure from such passive worship, and may make Paschaltide an especially beloved liturgical season for people who feel like it is their annual chance to contribute to the corporate worship.  It may also provide a bit of a "holy distraction" in parishes where the liturgical language is not comprehensible to the parishioners or where the singing of the choir/chanters is of a poor or otherwise unedifying quality, as may be the case in your own church.

I've heard this argument before:  that people cannot participate.  I find that to be bunk.  What are they supposed to be doing?  Praying. Is that not participation?  And is that not active?  Or is only singing the same thing as the chanters and choir considered participation?  Considering how musically illiterate most Americans are in anything,  that's a good thing.

You might try to acquire some reading comprehension skills some time. Even reading just those quotes you snipped out of the interview, I can see how grossly you misunderstand and misrepresent Pope Francis.
No, I know what I'm reading and the general point he's trying to make but he has to be more careful in his wording sometimes because the MSM (see anti-Christ) loves to distort and slant his own words to fit their agenda. But, make no mistake, Francis for all his good intentions, is a flaming lib at heart on certain issues which can confuse and even infuriate traditional Catholics at times. And he's a Jesuit, which means he's no dummy, highly educated and all to aware of the political and cultural implications of his comments and declarations.

I don't misunderstand or misrepresent this pope in the least, I actually like him in many ways. But what he says on certain issues drives me and a lot of other trads nuts. But at the end of the day, he is the Holy Father and as long as he stays clear on dogmatic and doctrinal issues, we'll just have to deal with his personal opinions and novelties.

“When I hear talk of the Christian roots of Europe, I sometimes dread the tone"...

This isn't a denial of Europe's Christian roots, nor is it a statement that Europe's Christian roots are a bad thing. It's just an acknowledgement of what some chauvinists have done in their assessment of Europe's Christian roots.
But the problem is, is that Christendom in Europe is already under attack, first and formost by anti-Christian  secularists, insane liberal theologians, radical Islam, and revolitionary Marxists and Jews. Does the leader of the Bishop of Rome himself really need to fan the flames of all this anti-Christian sentiment about the actions of a few rogue christians hundreds of years ago?

I don't think so. I long for the day when he says "When I hear talk  of the Moslem roots  Middle East, I sometimes dread the tone".....

Yea, like that'll ever happen.

God forbid that Roman Catholic missionaries forced pagans in their pagan lands to learn Latin and embrace Western European culture.
that makes about as much sense as saying "God forbid Jewish missionaries from Palestine forcing Jewish  teaching of Christ on pagans  in their  pagan lands to learn Hebrew and embrace Middle Eastern Jewish  culture".
That makes about as much sense as what you said.

How much can His Holiness challenge your abject fears?
So all this moslem violence and terrorism in Europe  is nothing but the people's "abject fears"?
No, just your fears. I don't see anyone fearmongering here as you do.

Well spoken from the safe compounds of the Pacific NW half way around the globe. Well done Peter. Tell you what, time for you get on a plane and move to a "no-go zone" over in Paris.

Actually getting Europeans to face east while praying to God would be a good change.
They're already are.
They haven't faced east in their churches since 1964.

The fact that you're unable to see the difference between a gross paraphrase and a faithful retelling is on you, not on me.
He explicitly states about dreading talk of Christian roots in Europe. I don't know what else to tell you.

No, just you. The Pope isn't here saying that truth matters regardless of the source. You are.
Well he knows, you know and I know that the source of a true statement is irrelevant. Unless your so devoid of reality that you're irrelevant.
But he also knows what you don't, that a statement isn't true just because Charles Martel says it is.

Maybe a question you should ask more often. Why believe everything in print?
Oh, so it's all or nothing. quite the deep thinker you are.But the question you should ask more often is, does a true staement really matter where it comes from?
How does a critical thinker discern what is true? Intellectual honesty compels me to recognize that the source does matter. Something isn't true merely because you want me to take you at your word and believe it's true.

Or are you going to let your prejudices cloud your better judgment and intellectual honesty.
Nah, I leave that to you.

The veracity of the Bible is backed by the witness of the Church.
OK, I'll play the devil's advocate here.

That's what YOU say. How do I know that's true? Do you believe everything you read?

Quote
The veracity of The Guardian is backed only by an Internet warrior named Charles Martel.
Or by the Roman Pontiff spin doctor and Eastern Orthodox papal Internet defender Peter the Aleut.
So you're saying that I support the veracity of The Guardian? ???

LOL! :laugh: Good luck with that!
