Vsers - Virtues To Practice And Contintents To Pray For During 2014


Recommended Posts

Hi, VSers....

 

This is a repeat of a thread I just posted in Open Mic.  Last year when I just did this in openmic, many VSers didn't know about it... so I am double posting it here.  You ONLY need to reply in one of the threads if you are interested!

 

 

--------------- snip! ----------------- (reposted from open mic) --------------------------------------------------------

 

Each year LilRed offers the chance to have her pick patron saints for us for the coming year.  I believe she intends to do this for Advent again this year! 

 

 

Last year I offered a similar offer... but not for patron saints.  I offer Virtues and Continents!!!

 

Many people find it helpful to add a virtue to practice and a continent to pray for during the coming year.  It's the custom in many religious communities, but I think it is a good thing for our Pham to do as well!   St. Therese's community did this --  she prayed especially for North America the last year of her life.

Last year I set up a bowl with the continents listed on slips of paper, and some nice virtues to foster for the coming year in a second bowl.   I'm looking forward to pulling these again this year.

 

Last year, for example, I received Peacefulness and the Continent of AsiaI have found fostering peacefulness has been a wonderful goal during 2013, and I don't look at news stories from and about Asia and the Middle East without praying for them....

 

I am going to start pulling and posting them on Sunday evening, November 17,  and I will continue to have them available throughout the end of December 2013.

If you want me to choose a continent and/or virtue for you, please let me know by replying to this post. Let me know if you want one or both....

Thank you!  Pray for me, and I pray for all of you!

I guess we will all be working on the virtue of patience until then!

ROTFL !   Max!   And for all of you....Your patience has been rewarded!     I pulled a virtue and continent for The171.... and when I told my houseguest, T, what was going on (because she pulled t

Did I muck it up and get you twice?   Oops!   That is really funny, but you enjoy your OpenMic Virtues.     My friend was sitting here, muttering, 'tell them "I" Didn't do it - it was the Holy Sp

I am the one to talk to about the virtues and continents.   I'm happy to pull one of each of those for all of you (unless you tell me otherwise). :)

 

Mater and DC, I can't help you with old or new saints -- you need to check with LilRed in Aisle 5.  She does that department.  She has told me she will be posting her Saints thread before Advent.  However, I don't think you have a 2 year license for the saints... you get a new one or s/he expires.... :(  But I bet Bl/soo-to-be-saint John Paul II won't abandon you!!!!!   You'll just make a new friend!

I always draw my own because I've ended up with some really obscure saints from lil red's drawing. I still have my bowl from last year. I'll use it again. I drew ones for my mom and dad. My mom got Bl Margaret of Castello and my dad got St. Dominic Savio. My mom loved hers.

:doh: This is in here, too?  :pinch:

 

If it's possible to remember, please post my virtue in here rather than the Open Mic. If not, no big deal. Don't want to make it a hassle!

 

Thank you, AnneLine!

Curiousing, I'll do it if I remember... and hopefully I will!

 

The main reason I 'copied' it in here is last year so many VSers didn't find out about it for months because some of the VSers don't venture out of here very often  ;)

 

There are a lot of good things in that Open Mic thread.... you don't have to participate, just read it sometimes! 

 

For example, LilRed has posted her 'select a saint for 2014' offer on open mic today...

 

And there is a big prayer request and updates about the health of The171 hiding under a file called 'The Percoset Files'.

 

Please post one place or the other, and I'll check both places so no one gets left out!

 

Blessings to all!
