I thought it was time to bump this thread up. I don't know if St. Dominic would claim me but I certainly am broke. It was nearly ten years ago that I decided not to enter an order of Anglican sist

Boy, looks like we are going to be storming Heaven. I love this community in action.

So PP, I am adding St. Benedict to my Litany any other Benedictine saint you would like me to invoke on your benefit?

My friend FutureINMNJ, I will include St. Teresa de Jesus, do you have any other in mind as well.

So I figure this group will have a twofold purpose in the end. First we will be debt free and all will be able to enter religious life. and secondly, with all this praying we may end up becoming saints ourselves :cloud9:

Think about it, wouldn't you like to be at the party in Heaven today celebrating our Beautiful Blessed Mother's Assumption. What also thrills me about this feast day is that it is a feast day celebrated by the Byzantine rites as the Feast of the Dormintion. So as church we are celebration TOGETHER!!! May we all be one.

May all be blessed on this beautiful Solemnity of the Assumption of our Beautiful Blessed Mother!!!

St. Benedict will storm Heaven well enough for me! I have a private Litany of Benedictine Saints whom I hassle with prayers every now and then. I'll ask them if when you call St. Ben they'll perk up too and join in the fun.

Have I just trivialised the whole asking-saints-for-intercession thing? Oops.

Love and prayers,

PP

I can't believe you are asking for this saint. Why? I have been praying to St. Alphonsus de Liguori for five years in regards to my vocation.

When I started looking at religious life again, I decided that I wasn't going alone and so I looked for the patron saint for vocations and St. Alphonsus was listed. So I said "Ok St. Alphonsus you are up." Not too long afterwards, I received a letter from an order that didn't accept me. I was very hurt, and I was very mad at St. Alphonsus. I said you are supposed to look after me and look at what happened. I was at Madonna House in Combermere the following week and I happen to find a little booklet about his life. Well, I apologized on his feast day and I made plans to go to Toronto to celebrate the feast of the Archangels (Toronto is under the protection of St. Michael) and where are there CSSRs and a church dedicated to St. Alphonsus.

While I was in Toronto, I went to a Catholic bookstore. Now money was tight but I wanted to take a look anyways. I passed down an aisle and there was a book on St. Alphonsus I was drawn to straightaway. I looked at the book and its price and I said no. I walked away but I kept coming back. So I asked the Lord if this is His desire for me to have the book. I didn't know what to do. Meanwhile in the store there was another lady buying things for a baptism. She was asking the clerk all sorts of questions about what would be a good gift. I was ready to leave and I decided I wasn't going to buy the book when the lady ask the clerk about the name tags at the counter and she asked if they would be a good gift. The clerk said yes and the lady called someone to find out the name of the child. On the telephone the lady said "Alphonsus". Well that was good enough for me and I bought the book. :D:

The book was wonderful and and showed me that St. Alphonsus is a good model for an older vocation such as myself. Like me he was in a career to which he gave his heart to ( for St. Alphonsus he was a lawyer)but he had leave it. Disillusioned but opened he was lead to the priesthood at time when studying for the priesthood at his age was considered old.

So he has been a very close patron and friend. Believe me, I talked to him all time. As much as I like to believe I found him, I think the real truth is I believe the Lord helped me by putting him in my life. I feel your request is another wink from him ;)

P.S. The Dominican connection: Hawthorne Dominicans. Rose Hawthorne became Mother Alphonsus.

I keep a copy of St. Alphonsus' book, [u]Preparation for Death[/u], on my nightstand. I highly recommend this book (especially for youth who think they are never going to die. :)).

A little phamily trivia - phatdaddy's (Mr. Ray) wife (uruviel's mother) is the person who introduced me to this book, props to her!

:blink: I'm sorry Donna Marie, I couldn't resist it any more. I love you guys and I offer my prayers for this "mission". I have 1 kid in college and 3 at home so I think that qualifies me as being broke. I love Dominicans, I vist them every chance I get. I love Franciscans and I've worn a path between my house and OLAM. Alphonsus is awesome. Dominic is awesome. Francis and Clare what can I say. Let's not forget Therese either and of course our dear Mama.

Anyway I would be honored if I could be a member of this awesome prayer club. :bigpray:
Mr. Ray

O Mr. Ray, we would be honoured with you as a member. :blush: I love the line " I have 1 kid in college and 3 at home so I think that qualifies me as being broke". :D: I have a friend who is a Trappist priest and he asks to be a member and so this group is growing in ways I hadn't planned.

As much as I do like to play I do take intercessory prayer seriously because I believe it is one of my gifts. What is wonderful about the Vocation Station and this little group is that we are praying and supporting each other in prayer. I have no doubt our friends, and family in heaven are interceding for us and we will see the fruit.

This summer has been very difficult for me at work and I was becoming very discourage as to whether I would ever be able to enter. It was a telephone call from Brandee, the intercession of St. Clare and the loving embrace of our Beloved that strengthened me. The battle continues at work with the owners of our practice placing our supervisor on probation. This leaves the bulk of the work in my hands again. Yet the grace of your prayers have helped and instead of reacting with sorrow, I was able to come to our Lord and bless His help so that I was able to make through this difficult day and ask His Help for over the next few weeks. The office is asking me for a firm date of my leaving and I have agreed that I would give one month's notice.

I also said to the Lord with a smile that I wouldn't mind a bucket of money coming to me at this time but I will wait upon Him.

Count me in, even though I'm proudly flying the Benny colours over here!

Yesterday I was at Stanbrook for St. Maximilian's feast; it was very beautiful :) (although overshadowed - I'm sure St. Maximilian doesn't mind in the slightest - by the vigil of Our Lady's Assumption which began in the evening)

I'm struggling to get rid of my debts too, although as the situation in with UK debts is somewhat different I have to do more looking up.

Love and prayers,

PP
