I can't get over the way I interpret the very first lines of religious blogs. I've been going through so many only to find every body has their own idea of what our God is all about. You tiny little worms! How dare you preach and throw stones! Some of the blogs are very nice and creative. I was impressed. But gobblty gook! Tell an interesting story, short and sweet! Give your personal testimony! Don't tell me I'm seeing life the wrong way! Don't tell me the way I worship is wrong or if I think 'this or that'.
I say unto you, "Make sure the rock is the largest you can find!".
For this reason I said that above:
I recieved an email with a novena and a prayer. As long as it comforms to standard practice of Orthodoxy, It'll even promote or publish, giving credit where credit is due.
I repeat this step, including the original rendering of Our Lord Christ Forgiving Magdalen.
Now the original email instructions:
You were chosen to receive this novena .
The moment you receive it, say :
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come. Thy
will be done, on earth as it is in heaven, give us this day our daily
bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass
against us. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil . Amen ..
GOD WANTED ME TO TELL YOU, It shall be well with you this coming year .
No matter how much your enemies try this year, they will not succeed ..
You have been destined to make it and you shall surely achieve all your
goals this year .
For all of 2012, all your agonies will be diverted and victory and
prosperity will be incoming in abundance .
Today God has confirmed the end of your sufferings, sorrows and pain because HE that sits on the
throne has remembered you. He has taken away the hardships and given you JOY . He will never let you down . . ...
I knocked at heaven's door this morning, God asked me . My child! What can
I do for you? And I said,
'Father, please protect and bless the person reading this message . . . '
This is a Novena from Mother Theresa that started in 1952 ...
It has never been broken . Within 48 hours send 20 copies (Or as many as
you can - God does know if you don't have 20 people to send it to .
It's the effort and intent that counts .. ) to family and friends .
Do not send it back to the person who sent it to you.
This is a powerful Novena . Couldn't hurt.... Can only help .
Please do not break it . .
