O Holy St. Demetrius pray to God for us!


« on: April 26, 2010, 10:23:28 PM »

Please pray for me.

This week begins Finals week so I'm super stressed about school. Also, I'm waiting to hear from Rutgers and Montclair Universities respectively to see if I got into either one of them. (I'm scheduled to graduate with my AA from the Community College in August.) In addition to all this, life with my Stepmother is no pleasure cruise, and the part-time job I recently started prohibits me from going to Liturgy every Sunday. Plus, my Father-Confessor is in Atlanta, and I'm in New Jersey. (My priest in NJ just grants absolution every Sunday before communion, and when I try to go to confession, he rushes me through it.)

I just feel a mess. I'm questioning the wisdom of my decision to go back to school, I have no social life, feel very isolated, and just feel like I'm burning the candle at both ends.

Prayer has been difficult, and being cut off from the Eucharist is not good.

Please pray for me, as I am having difficulty praying for myself.

Right now, I feel like this whole idea of going back to school to get my idea is more of a pipe dream than an achievable goal.

100. Like a bee one should extract from each of the virtues what is most profitable. In this way, by taking a small amount from all of them, one builds up from the practice of the virtues a great honeycomb overflowing with the soul-delighting honey of wisdom.

It's finals week and you're working...you ARE burning candles at both ends. This will pass.  Hang in there. It will be worth it. 

Prayers for you.

Lord, have mercy!

Take a deep breath and go one step at a time.  Don't think too far ahead.

You CAN do it!

Thanks for your prayers. It's just about 2 AM here. I've finished two papers due for tomorrow and I have two more to do before night's end.

It's going to be a rough week.
