Isaiah58 ok yummy
flag
Isaiah58 I used to get ear infection too, from fungi.
flag
Isaiah58 then I used rose oil on it.
flag
Isaiah58 sometimes we pray a few words and never think about it again.
flag
Isaiah58 at other times a person keeps coming back to yur thoughts and so you know to stay in prayer.
flag
Isaiah58 when the HS impresses something on us again and again he is likely drawing us in.
flag
Isaiah58 we don't mmean to be disrespectful to God, but we can keep praying until we see results.
flag
SaintTMore Yes, like the parable of the persistent widow and the corrupt judge
flag
SaintTMore The other day I was reading a devotional, "Conversations With God" which said the woman with the hemorrhage was a very good model of prayer
flag
Isaiah58 yes, she was.
flag
SaintTMore The devotional said she met 4 elements of good prayer: (1) faith in Jesus; (2) trust in his goodness and mercy; (3) humility; (4) persistence.
flag
Isaiah58 God delights in respectful persistence.
flag
flag
Isaiah58 some nice sermons have been preached on that lady
flag
SaintTMore Her humility and persistence in saying that even the dogs eat the scraps that fall from the master's table.
flag
SaintTMore Really touching
flag
SaintTMore Touched Jesus' heart
flag
Isaiah58 I like those testimonies.
flag
flag
SaintTMore Isaiah, watched your You Tube Video. Like Testimonials. I've watched probably a couple of hundred or more on "Journey Home" on EWTN.
flag
SaintTMore Including by Roslyn Moss (now Mother Superior Miriam) and her Brother, David Moss (founded association of Hebrew Catholics)
flag
SaintTMore They are one-hour clips, although the Journey Home website has several shorter clips
flag
SaintTMore Mother Superior Miriam was formerly a Messianic Jew
flag
Isaiah58 that's nice
flag
SaintTMore Still considers herself Jewish - "completed" Jew
flag
SaintTMore As do I, in a sense, although my jewish identity is very secondary to my Christian identity
flag
Isaiah58 good for you.
flag
Isaiah58 i go to small fellowship and we're kinda Pentecostal. Maybe 30 ppl.
flag
SaintTMore Small has its advantages
flag
Isaiah58 each sunday we serve a buffet afterwards.
flag
SaintTMore There was actually a "charismatic" renewal in the Catholic Church, speaking in tongues, etc., popular mostly with younger group
flag
SaintTMore Real popular with youth
flag
SaintTMore I'm more on the traditional latin Mass and chant music end of the spectrum
flag
Isaiah58 we had a few charismatic priests in this city too.
flag
Isaiah58 maybe you're heard of Father Bob McDougall, him and another priest.
flag
Isaiah58 Bob was a tail gunner in a bomber during WW2.
flag
SaintTMore I like priests with military backgrounds
flag
SaintTMore Our last pastor was an Air Force Academy graduate - pilot and military intelligence
flag
SaintTMore Nothing feminine about him
flag
SaintTMore Manly man
flag
SaintTMore About half of our priests in my Diocese are veterans
flag
Isaiah58 TM, are you a bishop?
flag
SaintTMore LOL. I'm just a lay Catholic who came to the Church in 2006
flag
Isaiah58 oh, thanks
flag
SaintTMore Not even a real involved one, other than daily Mass attendance
flag
Isaiah58 we had a protestant kid who went to catholic school, became a priest and then later a bishop.
flag
SaintTMore Yes, some of our best people are converts.
flag
Isaiah58 he served in Europe during WW2 and then served in Korea.
flag
SaintTMore Our son had been discerning the priesthood for from ages 10-20, but recently entered the army at 23, after graduating
flag
SaintTMore Hoping to meet the right woman - not sure if he wants to stay in the army long term. In Military Intelligence school now.
flag
SaintTMore Where is Guelph Isaiah?
flag
Isaiah58 my nephew was in American military intelligence too. After leaving that the electric power company in Orlando hired him as their chief man.
flag
Isaiah58 so he's the boss over everyone there.
flag
SaintTMore That's a great job.
flag
Isaiah58 Guelph is an hours drive west of Toronto.
flag
SaintTMore Electric companies have better job security than the government, better pay, and similar hours.
flag
Isaiah58 yes he gets $50 an hour plus overtime.
flag
Isaiah58 at least i think that's what it is.
flag
SaintTMore I've read that Canada has some really harsh laws targeting persons of faith. Side with what Mark Steyn called "the Gaystopo"
flag
Isaiah58 Canada has become liberal, abortions, accepting gays, and all that, but it is still wide open for evangelism.
flag
SaintTMore Yes, if brave souls still try to evangelize in the mideast, I suppose Canada is a piece of cake.
flag
Isaiah58 Gaystopo, haha
flag

Jesus loves you!
