Difficulties with my seven-year-old nephew

Just kidding, we get along great.   

Happy birthday, Arachne!   :)
Mor has an open appeal. This we knew already.

Mor suffers from Invincible Ignorance and is guaranteed salvation according to the Roman Catholic Church.

Happy birthday!
Is that what they teach you at the temple volnutt-stein?

Actually, it's Volnutt-berg.

Rome doesn't care. Rome is actually very cool guy.

"For what shall it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his soul?" - Mark 8:36 (DRA)

Do Thou, O Sovereign lady,
By Thy joy-bestowing honorable Icon "Queen of All,"
Save those who with fervent desire implore Thy grace;
Deliver from afflictions those who run to Thee;
From all dangers do Thou guard Thy flock,
Who ever call upon Thine intercession.

Many Years!
All opinions expressed by myself are quite tragically my own, and not those of any other poster or wall hangings.

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Seven-year-olds are awesome. They know how to pick cakes as well.



Thanks for the wishes, everyone! It's been a good day. 8)

I am going to play it safe and wish a very merry unbirthday.  Arachne is scarier than FatherGyrus (in my mind she is the Mrs. Emma Peel of OCnet) and it is wise to be safe rather than sorry.

Happy birthday Arachne!
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.
