Happy Victoria Day

With all the Rapture and Judgement day talk I forgot to wish all of you  Happy Victoria Day.

In case some don't know.  Victoria Day is the day we observe the reigning monarch's birthday.  Though May 24 was Victoria R. birthday, and our present Queen's official birthday is in April, I think.  Instead of changing the observance everytime the monarch would or could change, they (parliament) decided that no matter when the Birthday really was, it would be observed on the Monday on or before the 24th day of May.

So, in honour of the Queen's Birthday, a toast

The Queen.

Scripture to keep in mind

Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh his soul detesteth: [17] Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, [18] A heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief, [19]A deceitful witness that uttereth lies, and him that soweth discord among brethren. [20] My son, keep the commandments of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother. ***Cf:Douay-Rheims Proverbs 6: 16-20
