St. Theresa de Lisieux (via questformary)
I need prayers today for a medical issue I deal with. I had to call the doctor today because things have not been going well. I need help. Thanks.
I had another assassination attempt since Saturday on my life. Another spider tried to kill me; I kid you not.
I’m not going to survive this summer.
I read the first sentence and was like, “What kind of life does she live!?” (-_____________-;)
Get some spray or some clips and hang em around your room to ward off the spiders.
I should do that. But a part of me doesn’t want to because I don’t want to see them. My walls aren’t white, so it’s hard to see them to begin with; especially if they’re black. I think my window is the problem but I can’t sleep without it open. :( I usually spray raid on spiders and then swat them with my fly swatter just to make sure they’re dead. It’s important to make sure they’re doubly dead because You. Just. Never. Know.
I just read the incredibly moving story of Father Thomas Byles, a priest on the Titanic. He had at least two offers to get on a lifeboat and turned them both down, saying “his duty was to stay on the ship while one soul wanted his ministrations.”
What a holy man, a man to emulate. If I ever hear his cause for canonization has been opened, I will be among those praying for it.
That is how important the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession) is. He gave up his life, to save the lives of others.
