Poe's Law at it's best (Warning: a bit obscene)

You haven't met JamesR.

Just tattoo your wrist and you will get to heaven to meet a God you hate.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

Quote from: Fr. Thomas Hopko, dystopian parable of the prodigal son
...you can imagine so-called healing services of the pigpen. The books that could be written, you know: Life in the Pigpen. How to Cope in the Pigpen. Being Happy in the Pigpen. Surviving in the Pigpen. And then there could be counselling, for people who feel unhappy in the pigpen, to try to get them to come to terms with the pigpen, and to accept the pigpen.

My friend who's being studying in Portugal took this picture of a "parochial school" in Loulé. It was originally a primary school but now it's a seminary and a cultural center.

the least will be greatest
how?
those with less should look for mor
thus the path is rightly lit

go, and follow the example of those the Lord has placed (in posting order) by his wisdom above you; also heed the warnings of those who God has condemned to be (in posting order) below
