Sutro Parents of a Poor Clare
heartponderings One Thing Necessary
(adapted from St. Alphonsus' prayers)

O my God, help me to remember that time is short, eternity long.
What good is all the greatness of this world at the hour of death?
To love you, my God, and save my soul is the one thing necessary.

Without you, there is no peace of mind or soul.
My God, I need fear only sin and nothing else in this life, for to lose you, my God, is to lose all.
O my God, help me to remember that I came into this world with nothing, and shall take nothing from it when I die.
To gain you, I must leave all.
But in loving you, I already have all good things — the infinite riches of Christ and His Church in life,
Mary's motherly protection and perpetual help, and the eternal dwelling place Jesus has prepared for me.
Eternal Father, Jesus has promised that whatever we ask in His Name will be granted us.
In His Name, I pray: give me a burning faith, a joyful hope, a holy love for you.
Grant me perseverance in doing your will and never let me be separated from you.
My God and my All, make me a saint. Amen.

The now Father Jae Chung is bestowing his first priest blessing upon Bishop Lawrence Provenzano. St. Ann's rector, Mother Diane Britt, Deacon Anthony Jones, yours truly, and a cast of others stand in witness to this moving and blessed moment in the Church.

I love this because I'm writing a book about an angel who escapes purgatory to check out hell and ends up falling in love with a demon.
*nods* good shit, I'm pretty proud of it.

heartponderings If you have children I highly recommend listening to this talk about vocations. In the talk Fr. Nelson explains the teaching and importance of consecrating our children to God.
If you are single and discerning the call to the priesthood or religious life, this talk can help answer some questions regarding how to respond to God's calling. The cd can be purchased for $3.00 from the Institute on Religious Life website at www.religiouslife.com. The website also has additional resources and information on vocation retreats.

A brief summary of the talk by Fr. Thomas Nelson, O.Praem...
Dispel the myths and end the confusion regarding priestly and religious vocations! With this talk, given by spirituality expert Fr. Thomas Nelson, O.Praem., you'll discover: Why is there a shortage of vocations today? What must Catholic families do to "give birth" and nurture religious and priestly vocations? What are Satan's strategies to discourage vocations? Where can youth find positive encouragement to discern a vocation? This CD, distributed by the IRL and religious communities, has moved thousands of souls throughout the United States and beyond to think seriously about God's call to a religious vocation. +++God bless+++ #catholic #religiouslife #consecratedlife #catholicparents #catholicfamily #catholicliving #vocations #vocation #discernment #discerning #irl #prayforvocations #priest #priesthood #religiousvocation #religiousvows #ordination #seminary # seminarians #formation #novitiate #nunsrock #catholicnuns #catholicsisters #religioussisters #holyorders #consecratedtoGod #presentation #JesusChrist #blessedmother #Godscall

  •   dappledthings Praying that all may take the question of "what should I do with my life" to the Lord 2mon
  •   heartponderings @dappledthings Amen! One of the things I found most interesting is the Church's teaching on consecrating our children to Him. One of the reasons why vocations have declined since Vatican II council has to do with this teaching being lost so to speak. In my opinion this talk should accompany marriage preparation! God bless+++ 2mon
