I've been doing some hunting after a brief fishing trip and I think this may mean something but I'm not completely certain.
November 30th on that Calendar is an interesting date. Particularly the way things have been inflating.
November 30th in the Month of Hathor Commemoration of the Holy Virgin Saint Mary, the Mother of God (Theotokos).
Departure of St. Gregory, the Wonder Worker.
Departure of St. Cosma II, the 54th Pope of Alexandria.
Commemoration of the Holy Martyrs Sts. Alphaeus, Zacchaeus, Romanus, & John
Commemoration of the Sts Thomas, Victor, and Isaac of the City of Ashmunein
The first thing I noticed is it's a busy day and I didn't see any Martyrs.
I haven't had a chance to check out all of those but the first one caught my eye in a big way.
Commemoration of the Holy Virgin Saint Mary, the Mother of God (Theotokos)...Okay says I....
Then I looked at this....and I see An 18th-century Russian icon depicting various types of the Theotokos icons...Hmmm says I? That's interesting but no martyrs still yet.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theotokos
So I look further into this Mother of Mary...(I know guys...don't say it! I just never spent time with religion on any big level even though there's some guy walking around here sayin I'm in league with one of them guys...LOL)
So anyway I see this...REALLY interesting says I.
Mary in Islam
Mary (Arabic: مريم Maryām), the mother of Jesus (Isa), is considered one of the most righteous women in the Islamic religion. She is mentioned more in the Quran than in the entire New Testament and is also the only woman mentioned by name in the Quran.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_in_Islam
Are you kidding me? I did not know that! I know....go ahead say it...dummy! I deserve it I suppose. I think TonyB is going to spank me...LOL You know I love you Tony
But still no Martyrs! So I said it must just be a feast day....hmmm?
But then I was reading one of Carols threads and this post caught my eye and something popped! I think it was my brain....LOLhttp://www.themistsofavalon.net/t8534-they-knew-the-exact-time-and-the-exact-place-putin-accuses-us-of-leaking-flight-path-of-doomed-jet-to-turkey-as-his-forces-in-syria-deploy-missiles-that-can-blow-planes-apart-from-250-miles-away#117679
The Wall Street Journal recently reported that the CIA, along with Saudi Arabia and Turkey, is preparing to supply surface-to-air missiles (SAMs) to militants in Syria “even though Obama has long rebuffed that idea.”
So I dug a bit further...and lo and behold Saudi Arabia has guess what?
Martyrs' Day (United Arab Emirates)
Wanna know the date? You guessed it...November 30th
Martyrs' Day will be marked annually on November 30, recognizing the sacrifices and dedication of Emirati martyrs who have given their life in the UAE and abroad in the field of civil, military and humanitarian service.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martyrs'_Day_%28United_Arab_Emirates%29
I guess Wikipedia is like cliff notes for Religion....Who knew?
I have no idea if that means a damned thing but it sure is interesting no?
