Per Fidem Intrepidus means "Fearless Through Faith". My courage isn't my own, it comes from the Holy Spirit, it's my faith in God and my personal savior Christ Jesus that calms my fears and allows me to move forward in this fallen world. Personally I'm afraid of a lot of stuff, but having the faith that Jesus adopted me as his little, sin filled, brother keeps me going.

"I walk through this sinful world as a 
pilgrim in a foreign country" - CH Spurgeon
When I was assigned to the 80th Fighter Squadron "Headhunters" we would give each other the Juvat Salute, an unofficial acknowledgement of brotherhood and solidarity. Only a member of the 80th could give another member of the 80th the Juvat Salute. The word Juvat comes from the squadron motto Audentes Fortuna Juvat which means "Fortune Favors the Bold", in fact we called ourselves Juvats rather than Headhunters.

The Juvat Salute is both arms raised, fists clenched and held above the head, you shake your fists and shout "JUVAT!" (or Oooh RAH! depending on your mood) . A Juvat salute must be returned, which could be considered dangerous if you're doing something like loading a bomb, driving a truck, or taxiing an F-16, but I've never seen a Juvat Salute go unanswered.

I only bring this up because I taught my 10 month old granddaughter to give a Juvat Salute. She's good at yelling and she's good at putting her hands over her head, so why not? And it's totally cute. Of course her grandmother and her mom aren't impressed, but my son-in-law thinks it's a riot. And just so you don't think I'm a complete reprobate I am teaching her to pray too. Being 10 months old with a vocabulary of 0 we're going to start off simple; "Yay God!" I think it's perfect because we're called to praise and worship God, and what's better than a hear felt "Yay!"? I'll teach her about petitioning when she's old enough to understand what "according to His will" means (1 John 5:14)

Christians are the most persecuted people on earth. And now the left has decided that being a Christian is an unfair privilege.

"There are two equal and opposite errors into which our race can fall about the devils. One is to disbelieve in their existence. The other is to believe, and to feel an excessive and unhealthy interest in them. They themselves are equally pleased by both errors and hail a materialist or a magician with the same delight." - C. S. Lewis

  1. In the airborne we had a regular salute but we had a "challenge" and "counterchallenge." Only with airborne officers, though. We'd say "All the way, Sir," and the officer would respond with "AIRBORNE"!

    Rome's course on exorcism is about the same as charismatic courses on speaking in tongues -- and just as effective for truth.

    Good collection, as usual.
