MANILA, March 22, 2010-The Roman Catholic Church rejects crucifixion, flagellation and similar practices of some Catholics during Holy Week.
"People should avoid self-flagellation. There are many other ways of repenting [for] our sins," said Bishop Dinualdo Gutierrez of Marbel over Catholic Church-run Radyo Veritas.

Infanta Bishop Rolando Tirona believes that flagellation and crucifixion are expressions of superstitious beliefs.

Syro-Malabar Catholic procession.

"Behold, the mystical sacrifice, fully accomplished, is ushered in. In fervent faith let us draw near, that we may become sharers in everlasting life. Alleluia."

Please pray for myself, my family and my friends.

Awesome!
Worship is theology, so a church which brings Evangelical and Charismatic "praise & worship" into its corporate life is no longer Orthodox.  It is, by definition, heterodox.  Those "Orthodox" leaders who make theological arguments for the incorporation of heteropraxis into the life of the Church are heretics.

Now I regret these elephants are not Orthodox... I can imagine procession with icons carried by elephtans on Sunday of Orthodoxy.

Mor, what are you doing to bring more elephants into Orthodoxy?

But it had not been in Tess's power - nor is it in anybody's power - to feel the whole truth of golden opinions while it is possible to profit by them. She - and how many more - might have ironically said to God with Saint Augustine, "Thou hast counselled a better course than thou hast permitted."

Wouldn't there be less snow than in Penn State/State College?
Although it is further south than Center County, Cambria County is at higher elevation.  Last time I got caught in a snow storm back there was 2015.  I was staying in Patton (Cambria) and driving to Hawk Run (Clearfield) and the whole area was garbage.

JamesR got more ink?
The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.
