  • You may, to make the experience more enriching, pray on your knees, or, you may prostrate yourself (lay face down) on the floor.
  • St. Anthony is universally known for coming to the assistance of those who have lost something.(be it, keys, documents, loved ones.)

NOVENA TO ST. ANTHONY

(pray for 9 days or 9 hours straight)
St. Anthony, perfect imitator of Jesus, who received from God the special power of restoring lost things, grant that I may find (state your specific request or intention here!) which has been lost. At least restore to me peace and tranquillity of mind, the loss of which has afflicted me even more than my material loss. To this favor I ask another of you: that I may always remain in possession of the true good that is God. Let me rather lose all things than lose God, my supreme good. Let me never suffer the loss of my greatest treasure, eternal life with God. Amen.

My sister is having surgery on Monday

My dear sister has a duodenal ulcer and on Monday she is going in for a retraction.  Basically cut out the part of the duodenum that has the ulcer and then sew the two ends together.  They want to this BEFORE the ulcer bursts. 

Eternal Rest

Bear's acquired aunt passed away.  Please pray for her and her family. Thank you and Amen!

Deaconess Phoebe: Women got Second Class Baptisms

Women cannot be ordained. Got it! The Church has no authrity to ordain women as either preiests or deaconesses! 100% concur.

Deaconesses in scripture didn't do the same things that the Deacons did. The Deacons were an ordained ministry. The Deaconesses did not do anything that required being ordained.  The Deacons did all the important stuff, the Deaconesses did all the minor stuff that didn't require ordination.  All theimprtant stuff required ordination so the men did that. Got it not a problem accept it one hundred percent.

The Ordained Deacons baptised the men. The Unordained Deaconesses baptised the women. The layman did not baptise on his own. So the regualr layman who also was unordained did not have the authority to baptise. But only men could be baptised by ordained Deacons and consecrated hands, women were baptised by UNordained women without consecrated hands.  Wouldn't that suggest that women's baptisms were not as important as men's baptisms, because their baptsim were not performed by ordained minsters with consecrated hands?

Thinking out loud.

Scripture to keep in mind

Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh his soul detesteth: [17] Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, [18] A heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief, [19]A deceitful witness that uttereth lies, and him that soweth discord among brethren. [20] My son, keep the commandments of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother. ***Cf:Douay-Rheims Proverbs 6: 16-20
