  • Guten Rutsch!

    01/01/2018 4:04:22 AM PST · by SandRat · 12 replies
    If youíve ever been in Germany between Christmas and New Yearís, you have without a doubt heard somebody wishing you a ďGuten Rutsch!Ē It literally means a ďgood slideĒ and people use it to wish you a Happy New Year. Thereís various ideas how the ďgood slideĒ expression came about with some people theorizing it originates in the Yiddish word ďroschĒ and Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. Others argue that it stems from the original meaning for Rutsch, a journey. Personally, I always figured with the winter weather and amount of black ice we get in Germany it makes...
  • [Catholic Caucus] Christmas Day - Afternoon of the Eve (Gueranger)

    12/24/2017 1:59:03 PM PST · by CMRosary
    CHRISTMAS EVE, with its own happy spirit, is drawing to its close. Already has the Church terminated all her Advent Offices, by the celebration of the Holy Sacrifice. In her maternal considerateness, she has permitted her children to break their Fast of preparation for the great Feast, by taking their meal at midday. While refreshing their bodies with this repast, to which Abstinence gives merit, the Faithful feel an instinct of gladness, which comes as a harbinger, to tell them of that immense joy which this beautiful Night will bring them, by giving them their Emmanuel. But so great...

    Violet Privilege of the First Class (Double from Lauds onwards) ‚ÄúAT LENGTH,‚ÄĚ says St. Peter Damian in his Sermon for this holy Eve, ‚Äúat length we have got from the stormy sea in to the tranquil port; hitherto it was the promise; now it is the prize; hitherto labor, now rest; hitherto despair, now hope; hitherto the way, now our home. The heralds of the divine promise came to us; but they gave us nothing but rich promises. Hence, our Psalmist himself grew wearied, and slept, and with a seeming reproachful tone, thus sings his lamentation to God: But...
  • The Two Women of Revelation and Proverbs; Rev12 pt 2

    And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. (Revelation 12:1)The visions of Prophets recorded in the Bible are God-given revelations, that we might see spiritual realities otherwise hidden. Often these apocalypses,(ďunveilings) use symbolism and metaphor to reveal abstract truths to Godís people. In apocalyptic imagery, a woman is often a symbol for a spiritual body. Thus faithful Israel is often referred to as ďthe daughter...

    Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?( Genesis 3:1-2)The Angel approached the couple in the garden very calmly, and in an attractive form. ďEve, has God really forbidden you to eat of all of the trees of the garden?Ē By exaggerating the prohibition placed upon the couple, the serpent was probing, looking for any indication of a rift between they and God. And the woman said unto the serpent,...

    Ten years after publication of Who Was Adam? by Fazale Rana and Hugh Ross, 13 new chapters detail the new scientific evidence on the origins of humankind in a second edition.Rana and Ross are scholars affiliated with Reasons to Believe, which also published the new edition of Who Was Adam? RTB works to spread the Gospel by showing how science supports the truths found in Scripture. Rana and Ross both have doctorate degrees in the physical sciences, biochemistry and astronomy, respectively. Unlike most second editions, this one leaves the original edition alone and adds the new chapters onto the original.During an interview...

    A stunning new player-made video highlighting the visual beauty and wonder of this immense, sprawling and player-driven universe. Be sure to watch full screen and in HD 1080P. What many EVE players themselves overlook is just how visually compelling EVE is. All you have to do is stop and take a look around. All the while dodging incoming fire, that is. Heh. Just kidding. Or maybe not.

    Pure myth! That is today¬ís typical view of a literal Adam and Eve. Yet, contrary to current skepticism, a real Adam and Eve remain credible¬óboth in terms of Catholic doctrine and sound natural science.By calling the Genesis story a ¬ďmyth,¬Ē people avoid saying it is mere ¬ďfantasy,¬Ē that is, with no foundation in reality at all. While rejecting a literal first pair of human parents for all mankind, they hope to retain some ¬ďdeeper¬Ē truth about an original ¬ďsinful human condition,¬Ē a ¬ďmythic¬Ē meaning. They think that the latest findings in paleoanthropology and genetics render a literal pair of...

    In yesterdayís blog post, I sought to explore the details Original Sin and to convey that there are subtleties and stages to the sin that have something to teach us. The sin was more than eating a piece of fruit, there were things that led up to it, both externally and internally, which the text reveals.In yesterdayís post I also mentioned that it was worth exploring how the sacred text speaks of the Sin of Adam, and differentiates it to some extent from the sin that Eve commits. In fact, Original Sin, biblically, is properly denoted as the sin of...

    WASHINGTON, December 20, 2013 ó Federal employees are wondering whether the President will close the government on Christmas Eve. The order to close the government for Christmas Eve 2012 came on December 21, 2012. According to Government Executive, ďObama gave federal employees a half day on Christmas Eve in 2009, when it fell on a Thursday and Christmas on a Friday. He did not order any extra holiday time in 2010 or 2011.Ē **SNIP** As of the publication of this article, the White House has not given any indication about Christmas Eve closures.

    The Book of Genesis puts Adam and Eve together in the Garden of Eden, but geneticistsí version of the duo ó the ancestors to whom the Y chromosomes and mitochondrial DNA of todayís humans can be traced ó were thought to have lived tens of thousands of years apart. Now, two major studies of modern humansí Y chromosomes suggest that ĎY-chromosome Adamí and Ďmitochondrial Eveí may have lived around the same time after all. When the overall population size does not change (as is likely to have happened for long periods of human history), men have, on average, just one...
  • Eve; The Mother of All Living...Genesis 3 pt 14

    And Adam called his wifeís name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.(Genesis 3:20)Genesis three is a primal chapter of scripture. It is essential to any true understanding of the plight of man, death in the world, the nature of sin, Satanís wiles, and most importantly, Godís salvation. Every detail of this foundational chapter is set in place by the Holy Spirit of God, that we might benefit by this unique revelation of why the world is as it is. Therefore the naming of Eve, who up to this point is referred to as ďIshahĒ, (the woman), is...
  • The Sentence Upon The Woman...Gen 3 pt 12

    Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee. And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou...
  • The Enmity Between The Serpent And The Woman...Genesis 3 pt9

    And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.(Genesis 3:15)The gloom of judgment and wrath at the sinners in the garden, has been penetrated by this mysterious pronouncement of God, addressed to the serpent, and not to the guilty man and woman who had already refused accountability to God. Adam and Eve overhear in the sentence passed upon the serpent, the possibility of a reversal. Evidently even in judgment, the Lord remembers mercy to the fallen couple, for the woman shall...

    And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.(Genesis 3:6)Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:(Romans 5:12)Responsibility for the fall of man is laid at the feet of Adam, the father of us all, not Eve. Never in all...
  • Human ancestors interbred with related species

    Our ancestors bred with other species in the Homo genus, according to a study published today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences1. The authors say that up to 2% of the genomes of some modern African populations may originally come from a closely related species. Palaeontologists have long wondered whether modern humans came from a single, genetically isolated population of hominins or whether we are a genetic mix of various hominin species. Last year, an analysis comparing the Neanderthal genome sequence to that of modern H. sapiens showed that some interbreeding did take place between the two...
