Christmas 6

“Angels We Have Heard on High” is a Christmas carol with the lyrics written by James Chadwick, Bishop of Hexham and Newcastle, to the music from a French song called Les Anges Dans Nos Campagnes.

The music is the same as the original song, though Chadwick’s lyrics albeit unique and original are clearly derived and inspired, and in parts a loose translation.

The song’s subject is the birth of Jesus Christ narrated in the Gospel of Luke, specifically the scene in which shepherds outside Bethlehem encounter a multitude of angels singing and praising the newborn child.

Libera again:


If you were to stretch a hundred mile across ribbon from the north to the south poles, where would you place it in order for it to pass through the maximum possible number of countries?

In other words, what are all the countries it would pass through? Hint – there are 26 such countries.



There are some fundamentally wrong things going on and one of them concerns definitions.

A Catholic friend has just called me a heathen [oh ho ho, here we go] and on what basis? That I called out the current Pope and those CINOs at the top of the hierarchy for documented behaviour and for symbolism which is non-Christian?

I also called out Welby for his non-Christian and anti-scriptural stance and statements, plus the entire CofE hierarchy [and let’s throw in the sanhedrin while we’re there] – does that also mean I’m a heathen?

The Horowitz probe is why Peter Strzok’s amazing emails were discovered. As sensational as those emails are, the more important question is what occasioned their becoming available to the Horowitz investigators. The DOJ IG is nobody’s fool and his report is just over the horizon. Just ask American Thinker’s Thomas Lifson.
