Names[ edit ] Since , the Roman Catholic Church uses the name “Anointing of the Sick” both in the English translations issued by the Holy See of its official documents in Latin  and in the English official documents of Episcopal conferences. Cardinal Walter Kasper used the latter term in his intervention at the Assembly of the Synod of Bishops. This is to emphasize that the sacrament is available, and recommended, to all those suffering from any serious illness, and to dispel the common misconception that it is exclusively for those at or very near the point of death. Extreme Unction was the usual name for the sacrament in the West from the late twelfth century until , and was thus used at the Council of Trent  and in the Catholic Encyclopedia. The normal order of administration is: Biblical texts[ edit ] The chief biblical text concerning the rite is James 5: Let him call for the elders of the church , and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer of faith will save the sick man, and the Lord will raise him up; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven” RSV. Other Christians too, in particular Anglicans , Lutherans and some Protestant and other Christian communities use a rite of anointing the sick, without necessarily classifying it as a sacrament. In the Churches mentioned here by name, the oil used called “oil of the sick” in both West and East  is blessed specifically for this purpose. Roman Catholic Church[ edit ] Main article:

Lori Palatnik For many, the last part of Shabbat is the more spiritually fulfilling. The Shabbat Nap The body is on a natural 7-day cycle, and the nap can promote physical and emotional health by alleviating stress and boosting the immune system. Beyond this, it’s actually a mitzvah to nap on Shabbat! In fact, it’s not so unusual for the whole family to sleep a good hour or so after the Shabbat midday meal.
It may not be possible if there are kids around with varied sleeping schedules, but if parents take turns, a Shabbat nap can usually be had by all.

A podcast listener named Nathan writes in to ask: A wife is bound to her husband as long as he lives, but if her husband dies she is free to be married to whom she wishes, only in the Lord. So a Christian is not free to marry outside the Lord. Or 2 Corinthians 6: Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. So biblically the bottom line for the follower of Christ is: Will you marry only a believer. And what saddens me, Tony, is how many believers get so entangled emotionally with unbelievers that they either throw away their convictions or they stand on their head to see the other person as a believer when he is not.
So let me make it a little more precise. A mature believer will want his or her spouse not just to profess some kind of creed or be willing to go to church.

Grief and bereavement Stage One: Shiva After the burial, the immediate mourners return to a home called the “shiva house,” to begin a seven day period of intense mourning. Shiva is from the word sheva, which means seven. This week is called “sitting shiva,” and is an emotionally and spiritually healing time where the mourners sit low, dwell together, and friends and loved ones come to comfort them with short visits referred to as “shiva calls.
All other loved ones are also mourned, but the observances of shiva do not apply. Ideally all of the direct mourners sit shiva in the house of the deceased, for it says, “Where a person lived, there does his spirit continue to dwell.

I see the face of a future fascist. So what if he is? Although I am not a Christian your comments speak of open wisdom. At which point the laws of physics break down and the only answer I can think of to how did the big bang start is someone started it, ergo a godlike being. Travis Who Created God? Since God is, he she must have desired to exist. To desire existence is vanity. Therefore God is a vain God. Vanity is a love for oneself. So, this divine source of spirituality has that in common with us.

Twitter The New Jersey hamlet of Mahwah has become the latest flashpoint in tensions between locals and a growing Orthodox population in the far northeast corner of the state along the border with New York. A symbolic boundary that allows religious Jews to carry objects outside on the Sabbath, called an eruv, is at the heart of the debate. And some Orthodox view the opposition as part of a culture clash not with non-Jews — but with secular Jews. But Diamond, who supports the removal of the eruv allowed that he does see the growing Orthodox community to the north as separate from his own.
His own congregation has little contact with their more traditionally observant neighbors:

Party like a Russian peasant: Christmas festival mixes Orthodox and pagan rites Published time: Is it too late to join in? Goodbye to the dead The duration of Svyatki, 12 days, exactly matches the pre-Christian Kolyada festival — or Yule celebrated by other European pagans — though both of those holidays took the Winter Solstice as their starting date.
For agricultural societies, the lengthening of the week days marked a natural moment to demarcate the turn of the year, commencing the march towards the next planting season. And the severe weather offered more spare time for frivolities — work was frowned upon during Svyatki. The fortnight gave peasants a window to say farewell to the dead, as they descended with an assortment of demons — including female creatures, bodies covered head-to-toe in hair, who would dig their grotesquely long nails into the flesh of victims they met in the woods, tearing it out in chunks.
During formal meals, tables would be set and food prepared for the departed. Pyres would be kept burning outside the house so the locked-out spirits could stay warm.
