Then she shoots her. Please note: Contrary to the US Version, the previous shootout remains entirely untouched. Then he snatches a bike and leaves. The small shot of Limehouse running off had to be cut for continuity reasons. Akira throws them forward. Public prayers were only offered for those who were believed to have died as faithful members of the Church. But Saint Perpetua , who was martyred in , believed herself to have been encouraged in a vision to pray for her brother, who had died in his eighth year, almost certainly unbaptized; and a later vision assured her that her prayer was answered and he had been translated from punishment.
Augustine thought it needful to point out that the narrative was not canonical Scripture, and contended that the child had perhaps been baptized. Eastern and Oriental Orthodox believe in the possibility of a situation change for the souls of the dead through the prayers of the living, and reject the term " purgatory ".
Prayer for the dead is encouraged in the belief that it is helpful for them, although how the prayers of the faithful help the departed is not elucidated.
Eastern Orthodox simply believe that tradition teaches that prayers should be made for the dead. But we who are living will bless thee, and will pray, and offer unto thee propitiatory prayers and sacrifices for their souls. Gregory goes on to say, the Church's practice of prayer for the dead must not be an excuse for not living a godly life on earth. The various prayers for the departed have as their purpose to pray for the repose of the departed, to comfort the living, and to remind those who remain of their own mortality.
For this reason, memorial services have an air of penitence about them. The Church's prayers for the dead begin at the moment of death, when the priest leads the Prayers at the Departure of the Soul , consisting of a special Canon and prayers for the release of the soul. Then the body is washed, clothed and laid in the coffin, after which the priest begins the First Panikhida prayer service for the departed.
After the First Panikhida, the family and friends begin reading the Psalter aloud beside the casket. This reading continues and concludes until the next morning, in which usually the funeral is held, up until the time of the orthros.
Orthodox Christians offer particularly fervent prayers for the departed on the first 40 days after death. Traditionally, in addition to the service on the day of death, the memorial service is performed at the request of the relatives of an individual departed person on the following occasions:. In addition to Panikhidas for individuals, there are also several days during the year that are set aside as special general commemorations of the dead, when all departed Orthodox Christians will be prayed for together this is especially to benefit those who have no one on earth to pray for them.
The majority of these general commemorations fall on the various " Soul Saturdays " throughout the year mostly during Great Lent. On these days, in addition to the normal Panikhida, there are special additions to Vespers and Matins , and there will be propers for the departed added to the Divine Liturgy. These days of general memorial are:. The most important form of prayer for the dead occurs in the Divine Liturgy.
Particles are cut from the prosphoron during the Proskomedie at the beginning of the Liturgy. These particles are placed beneath the Lamb Host on the diskos , where they remain throughout the Liturgy. After the Communion of the faithful, the deacon brushes these particles into the chalice , saying, "Wash away, O Lord, the sins of all those here commemorated, by Thy Precious Blood, through the prayers of all thy saints. Of this they are always in need.
The body feels nothing then: it does not see its close ones who have assembled, does not smell the fragrance of the flowers, does not hear the funeral orations. But the soul senses the prayers offered for it and is grateful to those who make them and is spiritually close to them. Normally, candidates for sainthood, prior to their Glorification Canonization as a saint, will be commemorated by serving Panikhidas.
Then, on the eve of their Glorification will be served an especially solemn Requiem , known as the "Last Panikhida". In the West there is ample evidence of the custom of praying for the dead in the inscriptions of the catacombs , with their constant prayers for the peace and refreshment of the souls of the departed and in the early liturgies, which commonly contain commemorations of the dead; and Tertullian, Cyprian and other early Western Fathers witness to the regular practice of praying for the dead among the early Christians.
However, in the case of martyred Christians, it was felt that it was inappropriate to pray "for" the martyrs, since they were believed to be in no need of such prayers, having instantly passed to the Beatific Vision of Heaven. Theoretically, too, prayer for those in hell understood as the abode of the eternally lost would be useless, but since there is no certainty that any particular person is in hell understood in that sense, prayers were and are offered for all the dead, except for those believed to be in heaven who are prayed to, not for.
Thus, prayers were and are offered for all those in Hades , the abode of the dead who are not known to be in heaven, sometimes rendered as "hell". Limits were placed on public offering of Mass for the unbaptised, non-Catholics, and notorious sinners, but prayers and even Mass in private could be said for them. The present Code of Canon Law of the Catholic Church states that, unless the person concerned gave some signs of repentance before death, no form of funeral Mass may be offered for notorious apostates, heretics and schismatics ; for those who for anti-Christian motives chose that their bodies be cremated; and for other manifest sinners to whom a Church funeral could not be granted without public scandal to the faithful.
On the other hand, "provided their own minister is not available, baptised persons belonging to a non-catholic Church or ecclesial community may, in accordance with the prudent judgement of the local Ordinary, be allowed Church funeral rites, unless it is established that they did not wish this. The two extra Masses were in no way to benefit the priest himself: one was to be offered for all the faithful departed, the other for the Pope's intentions, which at that time were presumed to be for all the victims of that war.

This sort of over-the-top movie is despised by most critics with good reason , but embraced by those in the horror and cult community. Joe Bob Briggs praised star Sho Kosugi as "the best kung fu man since Bruce Lee" and ranked the film high on his best list for Briggs is my kind of reviewer, who knows good cheese when he smells it.
Kosugi really was the defining ninja of the s with all due respect to a certain group of turtles. Arrow Films has released the film on blu-ray, and have done a very fine job of it. We have a p presentation from a transfer of original elements by MGM of the unrated version.
We have a brand new interview with Sho Kosugi, as well as an archive interview and Ninjitsu demonstration with Kosugi from the film's New York premiere. I would love to have seen a an audio commentary from Kosugi, or perhaps something from Hessler, but he likely passed before Arrow got the rights.
All in all, this is a great release and anyone who loves the days of renting action films based on their cover is going to appreciate what this gem has to offer.
