The 2nd November remarks the 87th jubilee of the
coronation of His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I
as Ethiopias King of Kings . We honor H.I.M. who
sits upon the throne of Solomon. Defender of the
Ethiopian Orthodox Tewadeho Faith and Church.
Glory and majesty, may God bless our beloved
emperor forever and may God bless our beloved
Mamaland Ethiopia.

The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a
lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come;
and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.
Selah

"As Sunday, November 2, dawned clear, all in Addis
Ababa began to prepare for the impressive event of
the morning. The Conquering Lion of the Tribe of
Judah and his Empress have just completed a night
of prayer and devotion at the most high altar
within. Through the early morning the chanting of
praises continued, accompanied by the dancing of
the priests with their great pulsating drums, the
whole suggestive of the Ancient Jewish rites which
were in use at the time of King David danced before
the Ark of the Covenant.

"Proceeded by waving incense burners, His
Imperial Majesty, attired in white silk communion
robes, entered the ceremonial hall with an escort of
aides and clergy, and took his place upon the
Throne. The thrilling but solemn silence gently
breaks to the throaty voice of his holiness the
Abuna Kyrillos:  "Ye princes and ministers, ye
nobles and chiefs of the army, ye soldiers and
people of Ethiopia, and ye doctors and chiefs of the
clergy, ye professors and priests, look ye upon our
Emperor Haile Selassie the First, descended from
the dynasty of Menelik the First, who was born of
Solomon and the Queen of Sheba, a dynasty
perpetuated without interruption from the time of
King Sehale to our times."

"Forty nine bishops and priests of this ancient
Christian country, in groups of seven, have held
place for seven days and nights in the seven corners
of the National Cathedral to chant without ceasing
nine Psalms of David. They are now joined by
hundreds more. The established Coptic Church is
revered and all-powerful in Ethiopia. This is a day
when it may and does show its impressive might
and splendor.

"The Emperor, whose name is Anglicized as Power
of the Holy Trinity, before the questioning of the
Abuna gives his sacred pledge to uphold the
Orthodox religion of the Church, to support and
administer the laws of the country for the
betterment of the people, to maintain the integrity
of Ethiopia, and to found schools for developing the
Spiritual and Material welfare of her subjects.

"Chanting and prayers to the God of Gods rise from
a multitude of priestly throats and reverberate from
the lofty ceiling of the Cathedral. One by one with
the solemn rites and blessings of the high Ethiopian
clergy, He received the Gold-Embroidered Scarlet
Robes, the Jeweled Sword, Imperial Gold Scepter,
the Orb, the Diamond Encrusted Ring, and two Gold
Filigree Lances in token of His position and
responsibility. Following ancient customs, as when
Samuel anointed David, and Zadok and Nathan
anointed Solomon, so the Abuna anointed His
Majesty's head with oil. Seven differently scented
ointments of ancient prescription are received on
the Imperial head, brow, and shoulders. He then
concluded with the words:

"That God make this Crown a Crown of Glory. That,
by the Grace and the blessing which we have given,
you may have an Unshaken Faith and a Pure Heart,
in order that you may inherit the Crown Eternal. So
be it."

The centuries seemed to have slipped suddenly
backwards into Biblical ritual.

"The assembly applauded their greeting, and the
visiting naval band played the National Anthem,
while outside cannons roared a salute of 101 guns,
and cheer after cheer came from thousands of
subjects massed in the vicinity of the Cathedral."

Ethiopia my country...my heart..my love....
