I stated in another thread that I am going to say a decade on the Rosary as well as ask St. Anthony (only because HE personally has been very good to me and so, I must assess, Jesus loves him), and St. Helen, and St. John the Baptist (both who are patron saints of converts) to ask them to accompany me in prayer to God for Hisalone. I am going to extend that to these other three posters.
For those of you who do not know, these four posters are venomously anti-Catholic. They are deliberately obstinant of eduation and refuse to engage in a civilized dialogue which has provided them information to refute their errors. They are not charitable in their posts. They are very angry and hard hearted. They are not here to learn about Catholicism, but to pontificate their own set of bile, some of it less logical than others, whether they actually belive what they say or not.
As a result, some of our Catholic posters are being less than charitable.
Here is what I am asking. I am asking that all the Catholics who read this thread please pray a decade on the Rosary for EACH of these four posters, pray to a Saint whom you particularly love and you think will take this intention to God on your behalf, pray to St. John the Baptist, and another patron saint of conversion (list) as well as asking anybody you know is in Purgatory to pray for these posters’ conversion.
I would like to see their conversion into the Catholic Church.
BUT, I am not going to let what I want stand in the way of petitioning to Our Separated Brethren. I am asking also for the prayers of those of the Eastern Church who read this. Please pray to Our Blessed Mother, St. John the Baptist, and two other saints who may be effectatious in bringing these posters to see the Truth of the Apostolic Tradition and the Sacraments.
Finally, I am going to ask all Protestants who read this to also pray for these posters. I know there is no way on God’s green earth that you will pray for the same intentions I am asking from the Apostolic Tradition churches, but, I, nonetheless, would like your prayers for these posters, who may or may not share your beliefs. I pray you will ask God to not harden the hearts of these posters. I emplore you to ask God to provide charity and wisdom and patience and tolerance for these posters so that even if they will never agree or agree again with the Catholic position, they will accept that there are those on this forum DO agree with what Rome teaches, and can love us and be civil to us just the same. I also ask that you ask God that these posters be charitible and provide well researched and thought out doctrines and theories and beliefs as to what they believe in light of the Reformation, which was intillectual and discerning in nature so that they do not propegate deliberate lies and slanders that were long ago put to rest.
I thank you all for your prayers.
