Geeze, they're everywhere taking pictures of themselves and getting in the way. Is it because they're very vain people or just can't find anybody willing to take their pictures? I hope this cheese-head learns his lesson.

A priest stunned an Irish couple by breaking out into song with a surprise rendition of Hallelujah at their wedding, leaving the bride crying with joy.

Father Ray Kelly surprised Chris and Leah O'Kane with the note-perfect performance during their marriage ceremony at Oldcastle, Meath in Ireland.

The video of Father Kelly's heartwarming performance was then uploaded to Youtube on Monday making the priest an internet hit after having 240,000 viewings in just two days.

During the marriage ceremony, Father Kelly told the newly married couple and their family and friends gathered that he had a small surprise for them.

But nobody was prepared for his pitch perfect custom rendition of the Leonard Cohen hit 'Hallelujah'.

Father Kelly, who has been parish priest at Oldcastle, north-west of Dublin since 2006, starts the song with the words: 'We join together here today, to help two people on their way, as Leah and Chirs start their life together.'

Lyrics included - Hallelujah sung by Father Ray Kelly



The altered, customized lyrics were written for Chris and Leah by a girl in Enniskillen, Northern Ireland.

We're joined together here today
To help two people on their way
As Leah and Chris start their life together
And now we've reached their special day
We've come to help them celebrate
And show them how much we love them to,Yeah

As Leah is walking up the aisle
And Chris looks up and gives a smile
The love that flows between them fills the church,Yeah
With Leah's friends and family on her side
She really is the blushing bride
With love and pride they lead their Hallelujah

With the priest and the family who lead the prayers
We say our lines and they say theirs
I guide them through the ceremony to,Yeah
And in this house of God above
They join their hands to show their love
And say those most important words I do,Yeah

General Discussion / Ukraine ~ U.S. ground troops going to Poland

U.S. ground troops going to Poland

BY FRED HIATT,April 18 2014 ,The Washington Post


Poland and the United States will announce next week the deployment of U.S. ground forces to Poland as part of an expansion of NATO presence in Central and Eastern Europe in response to events in Ukraine. That was the word from Poland’s defense minister, Tomasz Siemoniak, who visited The Post Friday after meeting with Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel at the Pentagon on Thursday.

Siemoniak said the decision has been made on a political level and that military planners are working out details. There will also be intensified cooperation in air defense, special forces, cyberdefense and other areas. Poland will play a leading regional role, “under U.S. patronage,” he said.The strongest impetus, he said, is not even Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea, but President Vladimir Putin’s bald lies about Russian actions there and his exposition of anew doctrine allowing Russia to intervene in any country where Russian-speaking populations are, in Russia’s judgment, under threat. This poses a potential danger to the Baltic nations, which are members of NATO, and even more to Moldova, Belarus and central Asian nations that are not, he said.

Spirituality and Religion / Easter 2014: David Cameron’s message
« Last post by Jesso Yewno on Yesterday at 08:40:50 PM »
The Prime Minister of UK talks about Easter as a time for our whole country to reflect on what Christianity brings to Britain.

2014 04, 18

Happy Easter: Message from David Cameron ~ video


Easter is the most important date in the Christian calendar, and an incredibly special time for people across Britain and around the world. Last month I was in Jerusalem and Bethlehem and I got to see for myself the places where Jesus was born and died. It was an extraordinary experience to be in those places where so much history began.

Today, 2000 years on, Easter is not just a time for Christians across our country to reflect, but a time for our whole country to reflect on what Christianity brings to Britain. All over the UK, every day, there are countless acts of kindness carried out by those who believe in and follow Christ. The heart of Christianity is to ‘love thy neighbour’ and millions do really live that out. I think of the Alpha courses run in our prisons, which work with offenders to give them a new life inside and outside prison, or the soup kitchens and homeless shelters run by churches.

And we saw that same spirit during the terrible storms that struck Britain earlier this year. From Somerset to Surrey, from Oxford to Devon, churches became refuges, offering shelter and food, congregations raised funds and rallied together, parish priests even canoed through their villages to rescue residents. They proved, yet again, that people’s faith motivates them to do good deeds.

That is something this government supports and celebrates, and it’s why we have announced more funding for the Near Neighbours programme bringing together even more faiths in even more cities to do social action. And as we celebrate Easter, let’s also think of those who are unable to do so, the Christians around the world who are ostracised, abused - even murdered - simply for the faith they follow. Religious freedom is an absolute, fundamental human right.

Britain is committed to protecting and promoting that right, by standing up for Christians and other minorities, at home and abroad. Our hearts go out to them, especially at this special time of year. So as we approach this festival I’d like to wish everyone, Christians and non-Christians, a very happy Easter.
Florida man Cody Wygant accused of smothering infant son so he could continue playing video games

BARBARA LISTON, REUTERS , Apr 18, 2014, cnews.canoe.ca


Cody Wygant

ORLANDO, Fla. - A Florida man annoyed that his 16-month-old crying son was preventing him from playing video games suffocated the toddler and left him to die in a playpen, police said on Friday.

Cody Wygant, 24, was arrested on Thursday on charges of third-degree murder, which is an unplanned killing, and child neglect with great bodily harm, the Citrus County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman, Heather Yates, said.

Wygant said he placed his hand over the boy's mouth and nose for three to four minutes until the child appeared exhausted and lethargic. He placed the boy in a playpen and covered him from head to toe with several layers of bedding, tucked in such a way that it prevented fresh air from getting to the boy, investigators said in the affidavit.

Wygant told investigators he played video games and watched television for about five hours before checking on the boy, who by then was blue and not breathing.

Yates said Wygant was unemployed and recently had moved to Florida from California. Yates said Wygant has an extensive criminal history in California ranging from trespassing to rape.

US Jewish leaders deeply troubled by 'outrageous' anti-semitic pamphlets in Ukraine

By Cristina Corbin , April 18, 2014 , FoxNews.com


Jewish leaders in the U.S. expressed grave concern Friday for Jews living in Ukraine – and Europe in general – after fliers were distributed in the eastern city of Donetsk telling Jews to register themselves with pro-Russian separatists, pay a fee and declare all property holdings.

The precise origin of the leaflets has been called into serious question, and the Russian separatist being blamed has denied any responsibility -- suggesting the documents were spread as a ploy to vilify his side in the Russian-Ukrainian conflict. Still, Jewish leaders say the fact these pamphlets were even distributed, some 70 years after the Holocaust, has a chilling effect on Jewish communities worldwide.

"As a Jew, what impacts me is how the anti-Semitism that prevailed in that part of the world seems to still be in the gut of some people in that community," said Jack Rosen, president of the American Jewish Congress.

"Sixty eight years hasn’t changed much," said Rosen, whose parents were Holocaust survivors.

The pamphlets were stamped by the Donetsk People’s Republic and had the name of Russian separatist Denis Pushilin on them, but Pushilin claims he and his supporters had nothing to do with their creation and distribution.

"This directly recalls Nazi tactics, like the registration of Jews and the confiscation of their property, and it strikes a very deep cord with everyone in the Jewish community," said Andrew Srulevitch, director of European affairs for the U.S.-based Anti-Defamation League.

Christians commemorate Jesus's crucifixion on Good Friday

Around the world, Christian communities today mark the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, ahead of the resurection on Easter Sunday

Marina Barsoum, 18 Apr 2014 , Ahram Online


Millions of Christians around the world commemorates today Jesus Christ's crucifixion on the holy day known as “Good Friday” that falls just before Easter Sunday.

“Good Friday” is known in Egypt as “Sad," "Great" or "Holy Friday” in which the main Church in Egypt, the Coptic Church, holds prayers from early morning until around 5pm.

According to biblical beliefs, Jesus was arrested and sentenced to death after he was accused of blasphemy. Jesus carried his cross to the site of his execution, called "Golgotha" in Hebrew, or the place of the skull, and in Latin "Calvary." There he was crucified along with two convicted criminals.

Jesus was agonised on the cross for six hours. According to the New Testament, during his last three hours on the cross, from noon to 3pm, darkness fell across the land before with a loud cry Jesus gave up his spirit.

The cross for all Christians symbolises essential belief in the Christian faith.

The three days before Easter Sunday, for Christians, are the holiest three days of the year.

After Holy Thursday, no mass will be held until Easter, which proclaims Jesus's resurrection.
