The rite by which the bread and wine are presented offered to God before they are consecrated, and the prayers and chant that accompany it. HISTORY The idea of this preparatory hallowing of the matter of the sacrifice by offering it to God is very old and forms an important element of every Christian liturgy. In the earliest period we have no evidence of anything but the bringing up of the bread and wine as they are wanted, before the Consecration prayer. But soon the placing of the offering on the altar was accompanied by a prayer that God should accept these gifts, sanctify them, change them into the Body and Blood of his Son, and give us in return the grace of Communion. The Liturgy of “Apost. This silent prayer is undoubtedly an Offertory prayer. But a later modification in the East brought about one of the characteristic differences between Eastern and Roman liturgies. All Eastern and the old Gallican rites prepare the gift before the Liturgy begins. This ceremony proskomide is especially elaborate in the Byzantine and its derived rites.

Having this first of the Christmas Masses in the middle of the night is an old custom in the Church and is full of significance. In the first place it corresponds with the traditional belief that Christ was born at midnight. Secondly, from the material darkness around us, we are reminded of the spiritual darkness in the world which only Christ the Light can dispel.

The Midnight Mass is surrounded by family traditions which vary according to national heritage or personal preference. There is, for instance, one delightful way of waking the younger children for Mass. Some member of the family dressed as an angel and carrying a lighted candle, goes to each bed and sings a carol. After Mass many people share a special breakfast with their family.

The French are especially fond of this night meal or reveillon, and serve their own traditional dishes.

People wonder how millions of years could be squeezed into the biblical account of history. Clearly, such huge time periods cannot be fitted into the Bible without compromising what the Bible says about the goodness of God and the origin of sin, death and suffering —the reason Jesus came into the world See Six Days?

Christians , by definition, take the statements of Jesus Christ seriously.

The secular scientific literature lists many examples of excess argon causing dates of millions of years in rocks of known historical age.

Overview[ edit ] As of July , HBO’s programming is available to approximately 36, , households with at least one television set In addition to its U. HBO also provides its content through digital media; the channel maintains HBO Go , a video on demand streaming service available as a website and slate of mobile apps exclusively to existing subscribers of the linear channel suite and a separate, but similar standalone service, HBO Now , which launched in April as a subscription streaming platform that does not require a subscription to the HBO television service.

Initially people “in the business” either wrestlers or working behind the scenes used the term “kayfabe” as a code between those in the wrestling profession, discussing matters in public without revealing the scripted nature. Unlike actors who only portray their characters when on set or on stage professional wrestlers often stay “in character” outside the shows, especially when interacting with fans, trying to preserve the illusion of professional wrestling.

Another term for “kayfabe” is the word “work”, or “worked”, which also refers to the staged nature of professional wrestling. In contrast, something that is not “kayfabe” but legitimate, be it a fight or a statement, is referred to as a “shoot”. Every time he did, someone would yell “Kayfabe. Then one night, the guy decided to stand up for himself and told the whole dressing room: What he didn’t know is that wrestlers called people outside of the business “marks”—that’s why we were yelling kayfabe in the first place.

Sometimes that could include wrestlers’ family members who had not been clued in to the scripted nature of professional wrestling. A person can also be said to be “kayfabing” someone, by presenting storylines and rivalries as real. One theory suggests that the origin of the term was “keep cavey”, from the Latin verb caveo, which means “look out for”; this phrase was used by Jews living in East London between the two wars.

Many US promoters and wrestlers at that time were of Eastern European origin and many had heavy accents, leading to the term being transformed into “kayfabe”. In a show held at Wrigley Field in Chicago billed one of the matches as “the last great shooting match”, implying that the other matches were not “shoot matches”, the irony being that even that match was “worked”. Often wrestlers and promoters would make sure that on-screen rivals were not seen eating or traveling together between shows and so on.

There were a few occasional ‘hiccups’ at the time, such as an infamous incident in where The Iron Sheik and Hacksaw Jim Duggan , supposed rivals in an upcoming match at Madison Square Garden , were busted by police in New Jersey in the same car drinking and doing cocaine.

The Undamming of America

Being in a New England state allowed me to have exposure to the tradition of working oxen. There are shows and pulls throughout New England which have kept the tradition of driving oxen alive and unchanged in spite of its disappearance from other parts of the country.

The book of Revelation is one of the most neglected and yet one of the most abused books of the New Testament today and in times past. This view point is expressed in various forms by many biblical scholars. It is the most ‘turned back’ book. Classes make their way through the New Testament, but when they get to Revelation they ‘turn back’ to Matthew. Many Christians today are ill informed as to the content of the book of Revelation, with a general concept that it is a most difficult book and that it can only be understood by those who are Biblical scholars or by those who have some type of higher secular education.

I believe that this attitude toward a portion of the Inspired Word of God to be un-acceptable to God and to all those who profess to be children of His. The word of God is given for many different reasons: I do not believe that the book of Revelation is any less important in content than any of the other inspired books of the Bible, yet it is one of two books that most Christians shy away from because of its pre-judged content.

As much as I believe this, this in no way demises the fact that there are many difficulties with its content, nor do I portray the attitude of having come to a complete or full understanding of its message. It is my prayer to God and my desire for you to open our minds and hearts to receive the “implanted words of life”. The day that we seize to study is the day of our death and the doorway to a better and more complete understanding of the things beyond this life.

Study should be a constant way of life for the child of God. The purpose, as our Title of this book depicts, is a message of comfort during a time of conflict that ultimately results in a conquest and a victory over the oppressor. Although this message was directly written to the Christians of the First Century, I believe that we as children of God today can and must see the message applicable throughout the ages as well as the ages to come.

Thanks for your many years of attention and everything you’ve done to make the site such a valuable resource. The first thing is that you have to do some configuring of both Java and Safari to get the applet to run at all. Once that was all done, I could log in from all my Macs, fire up the applet and establish a secure connection. On two of the Macs, as soon as I fired up the Citrix app, the Java vpn window would show ‘error’.

The console showed a Java crash. But on the third Mac, everything worked fine. I made sure that the Safari and Java preferences were set the same on each machine but still no joy. Then I remembered that I had done some Java development in the past and installed various jdks from Oracle so I ran:
