One of my favorite hymns.  :angel: Also one of my favorite versions, although it seems to be just somebody's regular parish- they did a good job.  :)
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

Here you will find a brief video of our daughter's baptism, which took place one year ago today. She was baptized on St. Michael's Day, and she departed in the Lord the next afternoon. I miss my little Hosanna Maryam/Welete Mikael SO MUCH!

http://mysteryandmeaning.blogspot.com/2010/11/hosanna-maryam-memory-eternal.html

Jesus gazed at me through my little daughter's countenance for 11 weeks. As I held her in my arms, I held Christ Himself. And yet I still sin. I continue to indulge my passions, my ego, and my selfishness. What excuse do I have, for I have been blessed to hold a saintly infant in my arms?!

I will continue to pray to my daughter every day:


"Hosanna Maryam/Welete Mikael:
Pray for Mama, Papa, Noah, Zion, and Adayah"
-amen-

May her memory be eternal!


Selam

I'm so sorry for your loss. Memory Eternal, know that she is with the Holy Saints!


Thank you my friend.

An Irish Lament:

Beautiful.

Though, it's as much a revolutionary fight song as it is a lament: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=35CBWwy98nc

Could somebody please tell me what this is about. As far as I can understand the soldiers in this animation are saints but I have never seen fighting monks before.

He wasn't a monk when he fought, the story (of a soldier who was with St. Dimitri Donskoi at the Battle of Kulikovo) is told via flashbacks.
Every day we should hear at least one little song, read one good poem, see one exquisite picture, and, if possible, speak a few sensible words. -Goethe

I once heard a monk say, “The person of prayer does not need to go any further than his own heart to find the source of all violence in the world.” -Fr. Stephen Freeman

Thank you. I just thought that he looked like a monk when he was fighting Temir-murza.
Do not be cast down over the struggle - the Lord loves a brave warrior. The Lord loves the soul that is valiant.
