The Memorare.

assumpt.jpg (4668 bytes) Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection,
implored your help or sought your intercession,
was left unaided.

Inspired with this confidence,
I fly to you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother;
to you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful.

O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but in your mercy hear and answer me.

Amen.

For myself,that I can see myself(and love myself) as God does,focusing on the good on the inside,and not by my outer appearance.

What’s WRONG with people?

http://communities.justicetalking.org/blogs/day19/archive/2007/08/17/hate-crimes-legislation-a-matter-of-basic-fairness.aspxI have been following a blog where a young woman just gave birth to a baby not expected to live long and have learned they have actually been bombarded with HATE messages and hurtful scathing comments that they’re a “fraud” and a “hoax” and the like and even drew DEVIL’S horns on the baby’s photo! This incensed me; these people need our love,support, and our prayers and THIS is how people react? What’s WRONG with people? Why do they have to be so uncalled-for, so horrible, so MEAN? I have zero faith in humanity left to tell you the truth. I hope they can just try and ignore the haters and just consider where it comes from, but this is just unacceptable and really gets me mad! Why are people so CRUEL? How do they get “off” being so hurtful and kicking people while they are down?I just don’t get it…and I DON’T like it!!

“Not me!” Monday!

I didn’t wipe the 2 year old’s snotty nose with a washcloth instead  when I couldn’t find the kleenex…

I didn’t wash off my flip-flop in the SINK(as opposed to the hose outside) when I stepped in dog ca-ca on the floor…

I didn’t have dreams about celebs AGAIN….

I didn’t put an “inappropriate” sticker up on my computer monitor…

I didn’t silently gloat to myself with satisfaction,”I told you so! I was right!” when I was right about someone’s inappropriate relationship when I’d discovered they’d broken up(and secretly happy that they DID!)…

I didn’t just  pick the fuzzy white mold “fungus” off the hotdog buns and leave them there(as opposed to throwing them out) and  not tell the kids…

I wasn’t disappointed when I went for Confession and found it was Fr.P( and in the end it was exactly what I needed!) and then felt badly I ever doubted him…

NOT ME!!
