How many souls can i bring to HIM??

1?

200000?

25?

2000?

I dont know, but even one soul, plus mine is two! So if i can AT LEAST get two souls to CHRIST, then i have done my part, but two wont be enough, i want more!!
Well, your exclamation points indicate yelling.

Regardless, I would recommend you speak with a vocations director, starting with your parish priest.

I thought I had a vocation at your age and priests were more than willing to talk with me. I spoke with a diocesan priest every two weeks, also a Benedictine, and even spent a weekend with some Conventual Franciscans.

As a young man with a possible vocation you really should check this out, but do try to scale back on the intensity a bit- just some friendly advice.

God Bless

Thank you ringisil

I haved talked/still am talking with a Vocations Director, rather extensivley. Me and him agreed, that now, its not a matter of wherther or not i am called to the Priesthood, but as to what kind, Religious or Diocescan. My zeal is a sword, a sword that needs to be tempered with humility , but my calling and my intentions/desires are sincere.

Well, there are a few, and I mean few, religious orders who would start working with you right out of high school. Maybe something to check around for.

The vast majority of orders and dioceses will want you to get a bachelor's in something.

This can be a bit different for those called to be brothers.

For what? the LORD created a day of rest for a reason!! So we wouldnt kill ourselves with work, and that we would have time with HIM on sunday!! Our Lady also has kept warning us in Fatima, Akita, Lasalette etc., Our LORD has also appeared to give us the devotion of DIVINE MERCY!! I feel that is the one of the last, if not last Devotions and chances that humanity will be given. Our Lady and Our LORD has kept warning us, and what do we humans do a good job of? ignoring the warnings. Then we start crying and wondering why calamities strike, plagues, disease, famine, war, murders etc. Todays society has become too immoral and its time that we take the reins and bring our Society and nation (s) back to the LORD. Perhaps Our LORD is warning us!!!??

The wildfires, the heat, the conflicts, obama etc.. When are we finally going to wake up!! there is a battle to be fought!! and if we fail, the cost is eternity and our souls!!! The times are darkening,!! The fight Heats, the climax is near.... Let us arms ourselves with the HOLY EUCHARIST, CONFESSION, The Rosary and devotion/reparation to the SACRED HEART. Todays society has almost no morals, rampant impurity in the forms of porn!! (one of the greatest evils and something i will fight till i die!!) homosexuality, murder, greed, envy-We are all guilty, myself first and foremost. I hope the LORD will forgive me, and allow me to continue to fight for HIM and my soul!! Let us all pray!!

check this video out, very meaningful, scary and true. Just correlate what Our Lady is saying and compare them to our times..... The scary/chilling thing is that they match!!

Thank you for your thread
God bless you, I pray that you will continue to follow Our Lord Jesus, and that you will become a Priest one day May His Will be done.
Thank you for caring.


PAX,

Megan

I am not implying that you are, but you have to admit that society has depraved itself and is due for some big happenings if we dont repent!! Lets pray the Litany of the Saints....

(look it up on youtube, very beuutiful litany, made by Ucatholic i believe)
Thank you.. you took the words right out of my mouth!

Jesus, Divine Mercy to St. Faustina.

965
Souls perish in spite of My bitter Passion. I am giving them the last hope of salvation; that is, the Feast of My Mercy. If they will not adore My mercy, they will perish for all eternity. Secretary of My mercy, write, tell souls about this great mercy of Mine, because the awful day, the day of My justice, is near.

848
Write down these words, My daughter. Speak to the world about My mercy; let all mankind recognise My unfathomable mercy. It is a sign for the end times; after it will come the day of justice. While there is still time, let them have recourse to the fount of My mercy; let them profit from the Blood and Water which gushed forth for them.

1588
My hand is reluctant to take hold of the sword of justice. Before the Day of Justice I am sending the Day of Mercy.

We are near but we do not know how near.

Dearest Brother,

Peace and Joy in Christ our Lord through his most Blessed Mother Mary, most Holy Mother of God.

I just want to start off that while your zeal and great love for God is exceptional, I just want to spend a couple of minutes and have you ask yourself a good question.

What is the limit of God's Mercy? Is it limitless? Or is it supreme and unending? Infinite? Its barely a question that our finite minds can fathom in any manner, yet I would urge you to think about this. For in your OP you say that Christ's hand is growing heavy? Yet this gives a view that God is without mercy on his children? I would say not, for God is most merciful on his children, God does not punish us, our sin punishes us, that which comes down upon us is of our own doing, by the sin that we have caused against God. To argue a God that punishes is say that we have a God who is without mercy.

While I do enjoy your enthusiasm and zeal, one must learn to become contemplative on the truth. Building your zeal inside through study and prayer. This is the way we win souls, not being overzealous, but cautious and patient in our words, thoughtful and strategic in our speech. One cannot place limits on the mercy of God, I am not saying that this particular apparition isn't true, but one must first think of the implications and theological problems with what is being said. To declare that God is without mercy is almost to deny the cross. Peter looked to Christ and said "Lord how many times should I forgive the sins of my brother?" Christ says "seventy times seven." (cf. Matt 21:22). Now this is not to say that 490 times is some magic number. The point is that we should keep forgiving our brother out of love and if we are to do that, in our frailness and humanity, then how much more is God going to forgive us?

If you want to save souls and discern the priesthood, I implore you to do so, I myself am looking at joining a religious order, I just don't know which one. The point is that we shouldn't let our zeal turn people away, but rather through patience and being calm in the face of A) Opposition and B) Admonishing sinners, we lead people people closer to Christ for they see Christ in us. Christ himself was a calm speaker, so let us speak with the patience and love as the savior spoke.

By His Sacred Heart, Pax et Bonum.

You know, I've heard of "Our Lady of Good Success" but never read the prophecies. I also never read anything about our Lady of Akita.

They're quite chilling and quite a few appear to be happening in our time.

Thanks for posting the Gloria.tv video.

Remember the story of Abraham in regards to Sodom and Gomorrah. Abraham pleaded with God to spare S/G for the sake of ten just men. Well, WE have to be those ten just men, honoring the Sabbath and Mary's wishes/warnings. God is so merciful that if a few men be holy he will withhold His justice.

Daily Mass is a priority in my life for this reason. If I do nothing else but offer the sacrifice of Jesus, I have done more than any other action or good deed. God loves to be merciful and He loves to see us act as His Son Jesus. This will appease His justice.

It is often hard for me to accept that my love has such an influence on the Father. I often feel unworthy that He should hear my prayer and surprised that I mean that much to Him. But He has shown me that it is true.

God bless you for taking the time to post this mymamamary and for posting the video as well.

Many, if not all of the things that you mentioned throughout your posts and even what it states on the video I have heard about years ago from my own mother.

I think it was last week when I told my mother it is almost okay to live a "worldy life" if one lives a life of purity and for Christ you're shunned...Keep heart the Beatitudes Our Lord spoke of

Quote:
Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when men revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.
Rejoice and be glad,
for your reward is great in heaven.12
from http://www.vatican.va/archive/ccc_cs...m/p3s1c1a2.htm

I noticed in the video it mentions Our Lady of Fatima's warning if Russia doesn't consecrate to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

I thought this was done already?

Perhaps, CAF member Edward Henry can help me and others out. It is mentioned in a book called, "John Paul II, the Pope who understood Fatima"

Not that I am trying to argue or anything.

God bless,
