Ven. Archbishop Sheen’s Spiritual Adoption of an Unborn Child

holy-family

These prayers are said daily for nine months.  God will not refuse them!

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, I love you very much. I beg you to spare the life of the unborn baby that I have spiritually adopted who is in danger of abortion. Amen.

The name I wish to give my baby is ______.

Jesus, may Your peace and Your love embrace the hearts, minds, and souls of the family, friends, and loved ones who encourage this abortion and lead  them all to Your Sacred and Eucharistic Heart. Amen.

Discerned Out

Hey guys!  Just a brief post to let you know that I’ve discerned out.  The community and I weren’t as good a match as I at first thought and my soul’s charisms have been changing a lot in recent years (I guess that’s just part of growing up.) so I finally concluded that I am not, after all, called to a monastic Order.  I have not yet given up on Religious Life, but I’m going to just enjoy being a lay person for now and try not to rush into anything.  Thank you for your prayers!

oh yeah

Calling All Spiritual Warriors!

miserere nobis

A couple of extreme traditionalists have been criticizing and persecuting devotion to Jesus’ Divine Mercy. How many likes of reparation can we get for Our Lord? Praised be Jesus’ mercy! Let’s start a spiritual bouquet for the conversion of these souls and the comfort and guidance of those being persecuted in the comment section below.

Tuesday Adoration… embraced by Mercy

Another beautiful post about the spousal love of Jesus! Please pray for my family for some special intentions. Thank you! This post is dedicated to St. Agnes of Rome.

I Want to See God

Today, I was all alone with Jesus for my entire two hours of Eucharistic Adoration. This is a rare grace for me, although I feel sad when Jesus does not have other visitors.

But, His Love is so great that He is pleased and happy to remain in the monstrance for just one little soul.

When I have Him all to myself, I feel a special kind of joy. I recall St. Jean Marie Vianney’s words, “His eyes are fixed on you alone.” And I know, that if I truly understood that, I would surely die on the spot.

Being alone with Jesus is being like Mary of Bethany, sitting at His feet, fixing a loving gaze upon His Divine Countenance, choosing to do the “one necessary thing.”

I know that wherever Jesus is, all of Heaven dwells, and so I am never truly alone in the chapel. But Jesus doesn’t…

Holy Week and the Need for Prayer

alter christus

For us laypeople, Holy Week is a glorious time of great excitement. I look forward to it every year. For our priests who make it all happen, it is also glorious and exciting, but their ability to enjoy it as such is limited. Multi-hour Confessions almost daily, new members of the Church, and preparing for festivities and special liturgies, while beautiful privileges they cherish, also form a very heavy, stressful, and sometimes agonizing cross. These consecrated men of God truly lay down their lives for the sheep. I spend every Holy Week in prayer and fasting for them, and find my own Holy Week experience nourished as a result. Out of love, gratitude, compassion, and reverence for their holy gift of self for us, let us relieve them as much as possible through prayer and sacrifice.

I Want to See God

sinus

Hi dear friends….thanks for stopping by. I have a favor to ask. I am having sinus surgery today, and so I would truly appreciate your prayers for a safe and successful procedure and a speedy recovery.

I’ll be back soon. In fact, I had a post ready to go up yesterday, but forgot to hit the “save changes” button and so now I have to go back and do the rewrite again. Oh, the travails of Lent! 😉

I hope all of you are having a very holy Lenten season. I think of you as dear friends, and you are in my prayers.

You might enjoy this post from 2013, written when I was down with the dreaded shingles virus! I especially like the picture.
