Lorica of Saint Patrick†

I arise today Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity, Through a belief in the Threeness, Through confession of the Oneness Of the Creator of creation.

I arise today Through the strength of Christ’s birth and His baptism, Through the strength of His crucifixion and His burial, Through the strength of His resurrection and His ascension, Through the strength of His descent for the judgment of doom.

I arise today Through the strength of the love of cherubim, In obedience of angels, In service of archangels, In the hope of resurrection to meet with reward, In the prayers of patriarchs, In preachings of the apostles, In faiths of confessors, In innocence of virgins, In deeds of righteous men.

I arise today Through the strength of heaven; Light of the sun, Splendor of fire, Speed of lightning, Swiftness of the wind, Depth of the sea, Stability of the earth, Firmness of the rock.

I arise today Through God’s strength to pilot me; God’s might to uphold me, God’s wisdom to guide me, God’s eye to look before me, God’s ear to hear me, God’s word to speak for me, God’s hand to guard me, God’s way to lie before me, God’s shield to protect me, God’s hosts to save me From snares of the devil, From temptations of vices, From every one who desires me ill, Afar and anear, Alone or in a mulitude.

I summon today all these powers between me and evil, Against every cruel merciless power that opposes my body and soul, Against incantations of false prophets, Against black laws of pagandom, Against false laws of heretics, Against craft of idolatry, Against spells of women and smiths and wizards, Against every knowledge that corrupts man’s body and soul. Christ shield me today Against poison, against burning, Against drowning, against wounding, So that reward may come to me in abundance.

Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ on my right, Christ on my left, Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down, Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me, Christ in the mouth of every man who speaks of me, Christ in the eye that sees me, Christ in the ear that hears me.

I arise today Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity, Through a belief in the Threeness, Through a confession of the Oneness Of the Creator of creation

† Also known as the Breastplate of Saint Patrick, this prayer is attributed to St. Patrick in 433 A.D.. however many scholars believe the author to be anonymous.

How wonderful, TTT. Just what I needed in my moment of sadness this evening. Posted about it in the Open Thread. Found out that SD not only unfollowed me, but blocked me on twitter. It hurt my feelings.
But then there is this post, in this moment, and indeed it calls for a mantle of protection around all those who love and serve the Lord.

Curry Worsham

Sorry for your sadness m’lady.
Was it unprovoked?

ladypenquin

Absolutely, unprovoked. I’m very unassuming in whatever I say. Often retweet him too, and as you know try to make positive comments at CTH. No, I think he knows I’m here…
That’s okay. Now I know where all the good folks are that I was missing. 🙂

Curry Worsham

That’s what I figured. He probably checks in here to see who the “traitors” are.

gingersmom2009

Tonawanda

Sundance needs prayer.

michaelh

Sundance is a man suffering under a great deal of spiritual warfare. He is in desperate need of our prayers.
Sadly he has taken to blocking people on Twitter and banning on CTH anyone associated with WQTH.
Sundance, I know you are reading here. We are still praying for you.

Marica

lLady–
I actually blocked SD two days ago. He never followed me–I just didn’t want to give him the satisfaction of blocking ME! So SO sorry for your sadness. Such a beautiful Lady with such a great heart…He will be sad one day that he doesn’t have a Lady Penguin in his life…
Tona is right…He does need our prayers….

ladypenquin

Thank you, Marica. I was surprised. Figured he’d unfollow me, but the block. No reason except that he must know I’m here. That’s okay. If he doesn’t see the usefulness of having positive, reasoned comments in his threads, so be it.
Most of the names I don’t recognize there anymore, so won’t bother with it. I’ll miss Ristvan’s comments.

Marica

There’s a few OT that I miss–But this place has become such a safe and wonderful place..I stopped even looking. And you are a voice of reason! And speaking of reason–Who would ever ban Daughn?!! Or Wheatie of the cool tree pics? and FLEP?!! are you kidding–except I think he self-banned–but still! I can kinda “get” guys getting banned-the macho thing… But Why ban lovely reasonable women of which I would argue EVERY woman here is Extremely reasonable…SMH

ladypenquin

🙂

michaelh

I have a filter set up for all WordPress comments, to flag comments from people I follow, regardless which blog they are posting to.

tessa50

May I ask, how did you do that?

GA/FL

Takes a while to get over the hurt of being banned.
The lovingkindness of Wolfie, Flep, Steve, Wheatie, Sylvia, and EVERYONE here have made The Q Tree a place of refuge and healing and a place to speak, seek, learn without constantly feeling anxious and afraid of offending and being censured and vanquished.

ladypenquin

Yes, I feel like I’m among friends and family. And now I can read posts to my hubby from here and not CTH. 🙂

Aubergine

Hi, lp, So sorry you got banned.
I felt really bad about it for a while. It felt like high school all over again. But people here are really great.
We are like a remake of The Breakfast Club. I’m the basket case. SD is mean old Mr. Vernon.

scott467

“SD is mean old Mr. Vernon.”
___________
Dean Wormer!
I didn’t know who mean old Mr. Vernon was, but when I read your comment, Dean Wormer is the first thing I thought of, from ‘Animal House’.
When I checked to make sure I spelled ‘Wormer’ right, that’s when I realized that John Vernon was the actor who played Dean Wormer 😁

scott467

Of course, SD could also be the Principal in ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’…

Marica

BUELLER!!!!

Marica

Aubergine!!! I always tell people I’m Ally Sheedy–I don’t even know if I am actually banned OT. I came cuz I “had nothing else to do”! 🤣🤣🤣🤣

Aubergine

Lol!!! We can be basket cases together!

ladypenquin

🙂 I should clarify, that so far I’m not banned on CTH, but his blocking of me on Twitter is a direct attack on whatever he thinks I/we represent. It’s really more that he feels threatened, but other than just having held him in high esteem, even when I disagreed with his take, it’s simply now a disappointment.

Marica

Tell Hubby Hi from us!! And tell him thanks for supporting you and your time here!! We do get a shot in the arm of Winnamins when you post!! Keeps us from getting MOROSE..Well–at least me ..😍

ladypenquin

Thank you, Marcia. Hubby has been great and become politically aware as I have since the Era of Obama.

SteveInCO

I will second all of the above. Glad you’re here.

judyw

LP, just a thought I’ve thrown out before and may be helpful for you to ponder….do any of us know that someone other than SD is not acting on his public behalf? Hope that helps because it is not about you, it is about a person who unfollowed and blocked you which may or may not be SD. You are so appreciated here!
❤❤❤

ladypenquin

I don’t know, but he doesn’t seem like the person I was reading two years ago. Not at all.

judyw

LP, I don’t know anyone anywhere who would disagree with you. Sometime ago I put CTH and @TheLastRefuge2 in my Archive Stack of places I formerly trusted for useful information along with The Drudge Report which was my first to break from. We have lots of options. People change and their motives change but I am only responsible for where I spend my time and it tires me out to filter disinformation.

Marica

Agree 100% Judy!! And I truly have 0 tolerance for hopelessness–which is what you find OT..

TheseTruths

I see much the same writing style as before over there, as well as common words and phrases like “writ large,” “geopolitical,” and others I can’t remember at the moment, as well as the way he structures his sentences.
Many of us have been quite critical of him here. I wouldn’t be surprised if he bans and blocks people just for associating here. And it is not clear to me who is responble for banning people. Do they all work in tandem? Do they consult about such decisions?
It’s a shame that nothing has been learned over there. I asked politely three times if I was banned but got no response. If we had been able to have a short dialogue, something might have been learned on both sides. But that doesn’t happen. When someone won’t listen, all you can do is move on. I know it’s hard when you’ve respected someone. It’s different with me; I saw a lot of things from the beginning and wasn’t surprised about any of this.
In my opinion, he’s been treated with kid gloves — if not outright respect — by so many that have been treated unfairly over there. (And I say that a little hesitantly because I always maintain that the site owner can do whatever he pleases. But reasonable, intelligent posters, whose comments drew others to the site, have not been treated well.) My point is that I never saw anyone bad-mouth him or the site after they were forced out. I never did that, either, and I had plenty of opportunities to say something on other sites. I didn’t say anything until I came here and found like-minded people. He’s been given many chances, which is not how he has treated many of us.
I understand your disappointment, and that it’s difficult.

ladypenquin

I was just a wandering big #MAGA supporter and was delighted in 2016 to find CTH. The commenters gave me hope, especially Flep – ever optimistic. but I loved all the very smart people with their insight and sharing of their knowledge.
This move by SD simply was because of my association here – IMO, it means he doesn’t care that much about the community and knowledge shared at his blog.

Marica

How in the world did you get banned? T3– you are so tenderhearted! And I LOVE THE CELTIC CROSS! How about where Wolfie’s Avatar landed? God is so GOOD!

Plain Jane

I cannot even imagine you would be blocked. So sorry LP. His big loss.

ladypenquin

Thanks, PJ. It was certainly a surprise. He’s messaging on his part, but it doesn’t change who we are on our side. Tends to reveal issues for him.

Plain Jane

He’s either another person or persons, or he/she has major problems. Wow! Either way, those actions have spawned the growth of a greater good, namely, wqth.
Sad there are hurt people in the wake.

ladypenquin

These things happen for a reason. I’m sure the “big” conservative voices on the ‘net have noticed some shift in the tone of CTH. There are many analysts out there – it’s better if one is open to other ideas than to shut them out.

Plain Jane

God always makes lemonade out of lemons for His faithful. Sometimes I think he allows the unfaithful of marinate in the acid to bring them to their knees.

ladypenquin

Yes, that’s true. And someone mentioned praying for SD, and that is also a good thing. I’m sorry for someone who feels so threatened he has to let go of people who would have been glad to call him friend.

Plain Jane

I don’t think he/she is the same he/she. Really wondering aboutthat.

ladypenquin

True. Tone and tenor shifted quite a bit. Everyone has a writing style and speaking style. One can almost tell who wrote something if they’re familiar with their writings. Something sure seems off.

Alison

Thank you, TTT. Your prayers comfort, sustain and uplift all of us.
LadyPenquin, I don’t understand why SD would make that decision. Through the personal hurt and confusion, may our support lift you to higher ground. 💖💖 #WWG1WGA

ladypenquin

It’s within SD. It’s unfortunate that he has such anger, but he’s imply sending a message that he won’t tolerate not being the only access to information, ideas or thoughts.

Tired Mom

If I were on Twitter, I would follow you and never, ever block you (but I will never be on Twitter),

ladypenquin

You’re sweet. Took me a couple of years before finally joining. I do like it for getting a lot of information conservatives never would see otherwise, and now with POTUS directly communicating really expanded that information flow to people I had no idea about. And then those same good folks are now congregated in a place like Q-Tree!
PS If POTUS ever leaves Twitter – it will collapse.

Marica

Exactly right regarding POTUS ever leaving Twitter…
Did you see the tweets from the left, referring to the Trump Internet? LOL! Apparently it’s a thing!!! AND it actually gives me greater HOPE than ever. Trump supporters have found a way to get our voices heard by diving into the social media dumpster fires and taking on the hatred spewing commies!

rayzorbak

Lady…….. I for one am glad that YOU are here.
I Love your posts…..Welcome to the Banned! 🙂

OFFICIAL THEME SONG 😉

michaelh

In all fairness, I like this version better!

trumpismine

God bless you ladypenguin and remember Jesus loves you and all the
Qtreepers too!

Tonawanda

I believe in God,
the Father Almighty,
Creator of heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died and was buried;
He descended into hell;
on the third day He rose again from the dead;
He ascended into heaven,
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from there He will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Holy Catholic Church,
the communion of Saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and life everlasting.
Catholic = universal

rayzorbak

Agree (up until the 2nd “Holy Spirit” reference……
Stops there for me.

churchmouse

Mmm.
Not believing in the Holy Spirit is a very serious sin. It’s in the Bible. One believes in the Triune (three in one) God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

rayzorbak

That is why I stopped after the 2nd mention…. I agree up until the “catholic” stuff

rayzorbak

Anyone that has read my posts KNOW that I DO believe in the Holy Spirit.
(And the Sovereignty of GOD)….
Not some “church”

gingersmom2009

So what about the communion of saints? Don’t you pray to/for your deceased loved ones?

rayzorbak

I Pray to NOBODY but Jesus the Christ our Lord and Saviour. Nobody but him can hear (or see) us…..
For in Heaven….. There is NO sorrow or pain etc……
Those who have died are either in Heaven or Hell…. (No “Purgatory” – It is NOT in the Bible)
WE can NOT pray someone into Heaven just as we can NOT buy them into Heaven.
God is in complete CONTROL…. “we” are not…..
And our “prayers” do NOT change God’s plans….. (God does NOT change)
HIS “plan” is perfect and was done BEFORE the Creation of the World.
JMHO

bflyjesusgrl

Hey Rayzor, I’m non denominational. I believe the Bible. If I’m reading it right, I think Tona is saying to substitute Catholic for Universal Church, or whatever denomination you may prefer?? This is what’s known as the Apostle’s Creed. The group Third Day sings the Creed and it’s really good.
The Church is the Bride of Christ, He’s coming back for us. We’ll all attend the marriage supper of the Lamb. God Bless.

rayzorbak

Though I do not know what the “apostles creed” actually says….
my understanding is that it refers to the “catholic” church.
The Bible does NOT specify any denomination…. but to the “church”
Gods body of believes chosen (Elected) (Given to the Son by the Father in Heaven) before Creation.
I reject the “Pope” as I can go to God (Jesus) myself and have NO need for an “Earthly” intermediary. (Many examples that the “Pope” is NOT infallible)
JMHO

bflyjesusgrl

The whole paragraph that Tona wrote from beginning to end is called the Apostle’s Creed. I associate Apostles not with Catholicism, but with Jesus’ 12. And yes, no Pope necessary. Jesus tore the veil, He fulfilled the law, now we can talk directly to God as we are in Him(Jesus) and He in us. Direct pipeline😃

rayzorbak

To all the Catholics here……
I mean no disrespect…….
I am just stating what the Lord has lead me to believe.

bflyjesusgrl

Me either. We are all members of the Body of Christ. Doctrine will be reconciled once we get to Heaven!🤗

rayzorbak

So True…..
Thanks for understanding

bflyjesusgrl

You’re Welcome. And the Lord well knows, I’m looking forward to some answers when I get there!!😃

rayzorbak

Exactly…… like Why did you make Ticks?
Especially Poly-Ticks?

bflyjesusgrl

LOLOL, Those durn Bloodsuckers!!😂

churchmouse

The word ‘catholic’ in context there means ‘universal’.
The following link quotes heavily from a Reformed clergyman who teaches Church History at Westminster Seminary California, Dr R Scott Clark:

redlegleader68

ladypenquin, this is for you! (as noted by our wonderful Tonawanda)
Peace be with you!
God Bless you from ALL your friends and admirers here in the Q-tree.

ladypenquin

Thank you for your kind words.
I sure didn’t mean to have so much go on about me, but it did hurt my heart, considering I’m harmless. but what’s happening at CTH is bigger than me, and maybe that’s why this happened. It sure doesn’t seem like it’s the same SD we once knew.

churchmouse

‘It sure doesn’t seem like it’s the same SD we once knew.’ Nor for us.
But now, we ‘refugees’ are together here.

Linda

He’s either not the same SD we once knew, or he is and is now revealing more about himself. I’m not sure which.

SteveInCO

I am suspecting the latter, but then my bad experience predates a lot of others’.

SteveInCO

but it did hurt my heart, considering I’m harmless.

I don’t want you to be harmless–to the enemy.
But it’s ridiculous that someone like you-know-who came to perceive you as an enemy.

ladypenquin

Thinking on this overnight, this move by SD revealed a great deal, and in a way, epitomizes what we’ve found is almost a fatal flaw in the “conservative” movement. By conservative, even if it’s simply to retain our traditional American values, we’re impeded by those who cannot share.
Will take more thinking for me to figure out what it is they can’t share…

Marica

Thank you T3!! Beautiful Prayer!! You certainly know what and when our Q tree needs Protection and Uplifting!! You are such a tremendous gift!

wheatietoo

Thank you, TTT…for the lovely thread and the beautiful prayers.
What a wonderful thought!
And I love the Celtic Cross.
Not sure if it’s because I have some Celtic ancestors, or what…but the first time I ever saw a Celtic Cross, it pinged something in the back of my head.
Somehow it looked familiar to me, when there is no way that it could have.

Happy Anniversary!! Pray For this lovely couple!

I’m so glad she married POTUS!

Thank you T3. Beautiful!

rayzorbak

Flep….. With YOU being our local Economic Genius…..
I would love to see an article (deep dive) into:
Our economic future pertaining to:
Q: Gold will bring down the FED…..
How will things work out “IF” they Abolish the FED?
What currency will we use?
Gold and Silver? (Not enough worldwide to use as money)
Bitcoin or other electronic currency?
There is a bill waiting to Audit the FED…..
Another to Abolish the IRS……
Payrolls still need to be made….
Businesses need “credit” to operate…..
We need a way to pay debt and Buy necessities (Food etc)
What would happen to our bank accounts?
Retirement funds?
Investments? etc.
Worldwide Debt Jubilee? (Forgiveness of debt)
I know it is a lot to ask…. but YOU might be able to help us prepare for?
Thanks in advance.

rayzorbak

lol….. you know that I was NOT “praying” to Flep……
Just asking for “Earthly” comment. 🙂

Marica

but it’s fun to tease you my favorite Razorback fan 🙂 LOL!

rayzorbak

I can take it 🙂

Praying for clarity, focus energy and strength for WM and all who are in the trenches guiding the power shift that will benefit the innocent and all of humanity. ❤

judyw

You are THE BEST! It is adds so much substance to this lovely space and the first one seemed to be wholly inspired and much appreciated. Your suggestion to go back to it was brilliant.
