Gloria, in excelsis Deo! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2018

Angels We Have Heard on High

 

The English version of the lyrics to the Christmas carol “Angels We Have Heard on High” was written in 1862 by James Chadwick, Roman Catholic Bishop of Hexham and Newcastle, England. The original music was a French song titled, Les Anges Dans Nos Campagnes.  Bishop Chadwick’s lyrics are not an exact translation from the French. This beautiful song recounts the birth of Our Lord Jesus Christ as it is depicted in the Gospel of St. Luke.

Angels we have heard on high
Sweetly singing o’er the plain
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strains
Gloria, in excelsis Deo!
Gloria, in excelsis Deo!

Shepherds, why this jubilee?
Why your joyous strains prolong?
What the gladsome tidings be?
Which inspire your heavenly songs?
Gloria

Come to Bethlehem and see
Him whose birth the angels sing;
Come, adore on bended knee,
Christ the Lord, the newborn King.
Gloria

See Him in a manger laid,
Jesus, Lord of heaven and earth;
Mary, Joseph, lend your aid,
With us sing our Saviour’s birth.
Gloria

 

Les Anges dans Nos Campagnes

Les anges dans nos campagnes
Ont entonné le chant des cieux;
Et l’écho de nos montagnes
reprend cet air mélodieux:
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Bergers, pour qui cette fête?
Quel est l’objet de tous ces chants?
Quel vainqueur, quelle conquête
Mérite ces cris triomphants?
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Ils annoncent la naissance
Du Rédempteur, Roi d’Israël
Et, dans sa reconnaissance,
La terre chante avec le ciel:
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Bergers, loin de vos retraites
Unissez-vous à leurs concerts
Et que vos tendres musettes
Fassent retentir dans les airs:
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Cherchons tous l’heureux village
Qui l’a vu naître sous ses toits,
Offrons-lui le tendre hommage
Et de nos cœurs et de nos voix!
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Gloria in excelsis Deo.

 

Merry Christmas and Happy New 2018!

Persecution of Christians in China

Thousands of crosses are being demolished and Christians are mobilizing to save them– following Beijing’s orders to tear down crosses in eastern China.

PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS IN CHINA – Copyright © Marielena Montesino de Stuart. All rights reserved.

Over 1,000 crosses have been demolished by communist government thugs in eastern China. The faithful are desperately trying to save them or rebuild them. Pastors and clergy are being detained and imprisoned.

Zhejiang, a coastal province in eastern China appears to be the center of this crackdown– but we all know that this will continue to spread.

Religion in China is closely watched and controlled by the communist government in Beijing. One can only assume that these churches in eastern China are government-approved.

Meanwhile, the underground Christian churches in China continue to meet in clandestine locations– since many of their faithful are tortured, imprisoned and executed for refusing to collaborate with the communists and be “government-approved.”

It is evident that Xi Jinping, China’s president, has decided that even with his grip on government-approved churches– they are growing too much and are becoming a threat to the communist tyrants in Beijing.

My readers need to stay focused on an important issue: China is a blood bath of forced abortions, human organ trafficking (fetal and adult), torture, imprisonment, executions, religious persecution– and every abominable act known to man. Why then was China granted the status of “most favored nation” (MFN)– also known as “permanent normal trade relations” (NTR) status– as noted on the website of the U.S. International Trade Commission?

Why, ask yourselves, are we doing business with the Devil? The same goes for all rogue nations that appear on this list.

Why, ask yourselves, are we courting Chinese investors on our own soil? Do you want to see who is involved? Well, then click HERE and HERE.

During my campaign for the United States Senate 2012 (Republican on the ballot – Florida) I always included the following statement– which applies today more than ever:

“I’m not taking any prisoners– and neither should you!”
