2 pointsI decided to apply for the Angelic Warfare Confraternity [http://www.angelicwarfareconfraternity.org/], which is an apostolate of the Dominican Friars. I received a medal and a cord to wear, but now I have to find a Dominican priest or a priest authorized by the Dominican Order to receive me into the confraternity in order to be blessed. It doesn't look like there are any Dominicans in my region. I called a local priest, who advised me to contact the diocese. Then I left a message with the diocesan office and sent them an email. I'm not sure what else to do. I started praying 15 Hail Mary's for purity every day. St. Thomas Aquinas is the patron saint of the confraternity, and I happen to like his philosophy in many ways (I feel that it can be updated to accommodate modern science without sacrificing its core principles). I want to focus especially on purity of heart and intercession for others facing temptation, so that God will reward me with the gift of chastity.
