In my parish, the church used to be an AOG church so the pews were very close together. The kneelers we have now are cushions so it's almost nearly impossible at least for me to kneel upright. I need to kneel-sit. I only kneel properly during consecration.

About 25 mins. Enunciating each word as I think about them.

Any suggestions? I've deleted and installed again

This worked…finally. It took me forever ugh

While not obligated to believe, here is St Faustina's vision of hell. http://www.divinemercysunday.com/vision.htm

And from Fatima http://m.ncregister.com/blog/joseph-pronechen/fatima-july-13-apparition-ways-to-overcome-a-frightening-vision

I only give these two because the are approved by the Church. You can also look up Medjugorje too

When I was younger (say 16), I was praying devoutly to my Guardian Angel. When I woke up in the middle of the night one night, I saw a "figure" in my room standing against the wall. It was an outline in white wearing what looked like a robe covering from head to toe. I thought I was seeing things so I rolled over. Curious, I looked back again and it was still there. Five times I did this. On the sixth it just disappeared. I never thought of speaking but I want scared or anything. I truly believe he was there.

Nope. Too closed. I don't have Apple Music and it can't be used as a TV soundbar, no passthrough. Ridiculous.

In the evening, when you have time, you should watch Fr Don Calloway speak about it. This talk is quite long about an hour but so worth every minute.

Here's my two cents. This comes from Alexander Vilenkin, a cosmologist from Tufts University.

I quote from the article

"But now Vilenkin says he has convincing evidence in hand: The universe had a distinct beginning — though he can’t pinpoint the time. After 35 years of looking backward, he says, he’s found that before our universe there was nothing, nothing at all, not even time itself."

As we know from mathematics, divide zero by zero and you have zero. Nothing. Nothing is difficult to comprehend. Therefore, if the universe began from nothing which is impossible in and of itself then "something" had to create it. What is that something? God.

From a Catholic perspective, here's a great watch from Fr Spitzer's Universe. Start at 22:55. He just spoke about this a week or so ago. This segment is about 8 mins.

It's not only this, but do you ever see on the news where someone's father is shot and the daughter or son is on TV saying something like "we forgive the shooter." To me, it's kind of like that...both have lost something that never should've been taken. We are commanded to forgive and ask for mercy for those who wrong us. Today, many of us don't do it. It might take time to heal, but without forgiveness and mercy, you will never heal.

I can tell you what I've done and do. Every morning, I pray the following:

Apostle's Creed Seven Our Father's, Hail Mary's and Glory Be's

One Our Father, Hail Mary & Glory Be for: The Holy Father Priests and bishops To end abortion For the sanctity and holiness of family For a athiests (names included)

Deceased family members & for those in Purgatory

That the Blessed Mother protct me under her mantle, and the Memorare

That my Guardian Angel protect me under his wings and the Guardian Angel prayer

That God hasten the purification of this world

Prayer to St Michael

The angel of Fatima prayer (My God, I believe, I hope, I adore and love Thee. And beg pardon for those who don't believe, hope, adore or love Thee)

At noon the Angelus

At 3pm Stations of the Cross and Divine Mercy chaplet when I can. If I can't, I remember the Passion and invoke the Divine Mercy

In the evening, at least five mysteries of the rosary

At bed: Apostle's Creed, Our Father, Glory Be, Memorare, Guardian Angel, nonspecific prayers.

Beginning Feb 20, I will start the 33 Day Consecration to Christ through Mary

I can honestly say that these have helped me greatly through God's grace and Our Lady's intercession. I ask Our Lady to take my will and life and give them to Christ and God. And for complete trust in Christ.

I read Scripture and books like St Faustina's Divine Mercy in My Soul, and Champions of the Rosary by Fr. Don Calloway, etc.

Oh dear lord, I so just want to give you a friendly warm embrace! To see such dedication,and love, and faithfulness just warms my heart. I have my own daily things, such as daily mass,mother Angelica, my holy water, and prayer many times throughout the day. My faith is strong,and what's keeping me alive, I so pray to be as diligent as you in the future.

God bless ya my friend. Your an inspiration!👼

I appreciate it, but I still think it's not enough. I know that we're not supposed to ask for "signs," but I admit I did yesterday. I got it last night at Mass but didn't realize it until this morning when I read your reply. The priest's homily, in a nutshell, was about navigational aides like lighthouses and such. He said nav aides are there to help guide and if you don't have them, you can run aground. Look at Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini...they all grew up going to church but lost their anchor: prayer, narcissism, etc., and look what happened.

It didn't hit me because it wasn't really about the Gospel. Then I read your reply this morning and thought, hmm, maybe I am on the right path even though I don't feel it at times. While I have a long way to go, this is a base for me.

I realize that without prayer, like most of America, we're doomed. Look at abortion, murder, kidnappings...all that because we've lost it.

I truly appreciate your comments. And God bless you, too! I think you're on the right path, also.

(btw, I splash myself with holy water when I walk out the door and come home. And sometimes throughout the day while I am home.)

My apologies. I misread something. Your forgiveness is requested.

Correct. It attaches when the person self accuses.

He can refuse absolution. Or as a condition of absolution, the penitent must turn himself in

I'm just learning about this. Thanks for posting. Because of your, I will start on Feb 20 to end on March 25. It also for me reading the Mystical City of God. Wow. Talk about deep.

The problem with being Catholic (if you want to call it a problem) is that if you want to try and live truly Catholic (love, forgiveness, mercy, devotion, steadfast belief in teachings, a prayer life, forsaking things of the world, etc.) is that it can be lonely. Many Catholics are lukewarm and don't care about these things. Personally, I do. And, as long as I have them, I have all the friends I need.

I'm reading St Faustina's Divine Mercy in My Soul. Very deep, impactful and has made an impression on me. I beg mercy for everything now.

Courageous Priest site

I found this site about a week ago and I'm hooked. Maybe some of you have heard of it. They tell it like it is: faithful to the Church, Teachings, Holy Father, and to the Magisterium. Pages and pages of great articles. I suggest you read. http://www.courageouspriest.com

There is so much good on here. I've read a lot. I'm about 5 years back now. I'm reading almost all of it

Yes, pretzel crust and cheddar crust are gone from our menu. Now that it's 2018 I can say that 😅. But stores will continue to offer these crusts over the phone or in store, until the necessary ingredients have either run out or expired.

EDIT: Sorry I should be more clear. Yes, these crust flavors are gone nationality. But if a particular store still has the necessary materials in stock they can continue to offer them until sold out, or the ingredients expire. In addition to the crust flavors, several unpopular toppings and specialties are also gone as of today. But again, stores can keep selling until they run out. Also premium sauce. And a few WingStreet items.

It's not just a given. Faith alone doesn't earn it.

I never presume I will go to heaven: sin of presumption. It also takes works not just faith. Works? The Beatitudes. You must also do. Plus, as Jesus said and I paraphrase: take up your cross and follow me. I believe that I, too, must suffer. Heaven for me is not a given, but I have hope that one day I will go when I die.

Ha I know nothing about Canon Law. That's too deep for me

Yes, you can get over it, but not alone. Prayer, prayer and more prayer. Confession. And did I mention prayer? You will always be tempted, but through prayer and the grace of God, you then can overcome temptations. But, confession is a must. Believe me, I know; I've been there.
