On the other, I'm filled with the strangest paranoia that my life is a TV show and the writers wanted to mix things up a little, but test audiences didn't like the changes so the producers pulled the plug on them.

I used to have this as my signature here:

Quote
Every day, my life comes closer to resembling a "My Name Is Earl" episode.

And now you have this sig:

Quote
"As the sparrow flees from a hawk, so the man seeking humility flees from an argument". St John Climacus

as well as a change of avatar and its accompanying slogan.

St Patrick is not to be used and abused to make a triumphalist statement - and, incomprehensibly, by a priest.  Indeed, no saint should be appropriated in this way by anyone, any more than an iconographer has authority to paint images promoting a social, political or ecclesiological cause. How does seeking humility square with this public gloating?

I am noticing more and more Icons of St. Patrick popping up as people's avatars.  So, what's up and why have I been left out of it?  Is there some sort of reverse-Old-Calendar thing going on where Orthodox celebrate St. Patrick's Day a month early so they can get it in before Lent starts?

EDIT - Apparently I'm not the only one noticing it, they just type faster!   Wink

Kind of like the ten people who use the same icon of St. John of Shanghai and San Francisco. I think the multiple St. Patrick icons are nice. Smiley

Do you all really think that several long-time, frequent posters switching to the St. Patrick "avatar" closely identified with a long-time, frequent poster who has been recently and controversially muted is a coincidence?

I see nothing suspicious about a bunch of posters changing their avatars to a perfectly Orthodox icon of St. Patrick. Even Fr. Chris is doing it, so surely there is another meaning behind it. Why, Fr. Chris would have to be particularly scornful and mean-spirited to use mockingly that icon for himself if what you insinuated (that people are using the icon to show solidarity with said muted poster) is true. Thankfully, we know that can't possibly the case. angel

I personally am so happy to see that devotion to our Holy Father Patrick has increased dramatically on this forum. His icon might even be more popular than the icon of St. John of Shanghai and San Francisco now!

I have made no secret that I am of Irish ancestry; my grandmother is even from County Armagh, as I have stated elsewhere in this site. When I lived with her in my early years, she taught me many lessons in her accent and bright eyes about this wonderful saint. And she was a Protestant!  Smiley How many of you can say the same?

I have venerated the relics of this saint, and he has always interceded for me when I have asked him. In my icon corner, St Patrick is literally next to my own patron. How many of you can say the same?

On March 17, I have a Liturgy for St Patrick, Isoapostolon, Enlightener of Ireland, along with St Alexios the Man of God. How many of you can say the same?

On March 17, I even wear a green collar tab instead of the white one, because that was shown me by another priest of Irish descent I met while at seminary as another way to honor the Holy St Patrick. I even was in the Irish parade at the Greek seminary in Boston... helped to start that tradition, actually. How many of you can say that?

Father, all respect, but most of us are not priests and have no opportunity to decide for whom the liturgy will be said...  Embarrassed

Still, you are right in that we all have opportunities to increase our devotion, and the Feast of St. Patrick being only weeks away, plus Lent coming up soon as well, this is as good a time as any to do so.

You are not the only person in the world who is of Irish stock and grew up with the lore of St Patrick.

I have venerated the relics of this saint,

 No need to crow about it. Most of us have no chance of venerating the relics of most saints, including those of St Patrick.

Good for you.

I can (would you like to see a photo of my icon corner?), and I'm sure many others here can, including a certain hieromonk. Your point?

I can. We've been commemorating St Patrick in my town for years now. Last year, nine priests (including the dean, representing the bishop, for whom circumstances prevented from attending) and two deacons served at the festal liturgy. Can you say the same?

In my icon corner, St Patrick is literally next to my own patron. How many of you can say the same?

I can (would you like to see a photo of my icon corner?), and I'm sure many others here can, including a certain hieromonk. Your point?

I love you LBK.

Why don't you all just measure your icon corners and get it over with.

I think you can still get struck by lightening even if you stand under a tree.

Good job you're doing in the food bank  angel

Thank you.  Smiley

Yes i do. I changed my avatar to St P a few days ago for that very reason. You need to pay more attention.

I changed it back today because it felt odd given that i don't venerate any icons as i'm....refried.

I'm considering moving to New Zealand.  I hear there's this really great hieromonk, that some people have tried to silence.

The decision to mute Irish Hermit was a decision made by our forum admin, Fr. Chris, and that only after the moderator team gave careful consideration to Irish Hermit's posting history here. What you have done in this post, then, is criticize a moderatorial decision in public, which has already drawn disciplinary action against a couple other posters. That means that you share in the irresponsibility that got Irish Hermit muted and drew penalties against those others who criticized Fr. Chris's decision. You are therefore placed on Post Moderation for 99 days. If you think this action wrong, feel free to appeal it via private message to Fr. George.

Indeed.  Hey, do you think that there are a lot of St. Patrick lovers in New Zealand?  I bet there are even some Orthodox ones there.

I crave silence. My neighborhood is sooo noisy! I guess God is trying to teach me how to cultivate the silence of the heart even when there's noise all around me. How did the Saints do it?! I ain't even close yet! lol.
