My favorite rendition of the Ave Maria was composed by Caccini and is performed by Andrea Bocelli. Here it is.
I was thinking some Catholics have had it worse than me.
Norma McCorvey wrote a book “I am Roe,” before her conversion, to the Catholic Church.
I read, about her sad autobiography. She was messed up sexually by a nun. She became a lesbian from it. Then was used by pro-abortion lawyers, to make Abortion Legal, in the United States.
This cartoon reminded me of her messed up life. And, how sometimes CARTOONS on the surface are funny, to cover up, like a bandaid, a deeper wound.
So I prayed for her today. And, the evil nun who took her innocence away. The maxim, “There but for the Grace of God, go I” came to mind.
That one evil nun, did years of damage to Norma and the whole USA. That Mortal Sin had a Ripple Affect on the Whole United States.
The Good News is Norma McCorvey became Catholic, Chaste and Pro-Life. So there are happy endings, after all. It just takes a lot of Knee-Mail to get there.
Wikipedia has her life story. It can answer any question you may have about her change of life. It will help those, I bet, who are in similar situations, to seek Help in a “good” nearby Catholic Church or counselor’s office, too. If you find discouragement, in one place, keep looking. Do not give up. Ever! Keep looking for the PEARL OF GREAT PRICE otherwise known as GOD! He loves you! Those who discourage you, don’t like themselves, and they project it, onto to you. Don’t let their bull shit bother you.
Help is available, if you keep seeking. Never give up. Where there’s life: there’s hope. Talk to God and your Guardian Angel for help everyday. Then, just put one foot in front of the other. Eventually, you’ll feel better. Praying for an adversary, will help you to forgive them. Who knows. Your prayers, may save a Nun or Priest’s Vocation, from taking a nose-dive for the worse. Give God a chance. He’s willing to Help if you let Him.
I may have to sell my house, to pay off my debts.
Maybe the priests and bishops will have to sell their Mercedes or their STD Clinic that gives Condoms to 12 Yr Olds, to pay off their debts. Maybe God will bless them, if they start preaching Catholicism not watered down pablum.
Frankly; I’m getting tired of seeing women wearing Prostitute Clothing to Church. Betcha their wallets are being mined.
I was praying for new pants…they’re thread bare, new underwear…and begging Our Lady before Mass.
The Gang messed up my Garage Roof and House Foundation and scared off two other neighbors they couldn’t stand. Who would buy a $40,000 depreciated piece of property?
Then the priest wants his share. Does not give a damn about me. Just wants the $$$.
I don’t have any $$$ in my wallet nor bank account, so I guess he is barking up the wrong tree.
Maybe he can bug the sick and poor in Darfur. He’d get the same reaction out of them, that he’s tacitly gotten out of me.
I need a Fish with a Coin in It’s Mouth, so I can give to Ceasar his extorted piece of the pie. All I ask for is Mass, Sacraments and Holy Communion.
Church Community is non existent.
I had to wear a 3 year old dress, to Mass, yesterday. It’s the only thing that is not thread bare.
No wonder I want to move, clean clear out of the USA, to a simpler, more Catholic country.
Whether to blog or not to blog about such trivial stuff as my great need for God’s Graces for everything, in my life is the Next Question.
