Passing with a C




I’m totally a #5.

And don’t your forget it. :angry:



As St.Francis said close to his death:
“Let us begin, for up to now we have done nothing- St. Francis of Assisi”


We need mercy every day lol


I am #1, no doubt of it. If I make it to Purgatory it will be just barely by the skin of my teeth. :cry:


Stumbling, falling, rising by God’s grace; desiring to improve, hoping and praying that I am fulfilling God’s will for my life.


Ron, you need to add this to the list! :slightly_smiling_face:
It’s a pretty perfect answer.

P.S. As soon as I saw the title of this thread, I knew it was you, goodcatholic! :blush:


Saved by grace through faith apart from works. I’m riding Jesus’ coattails.


Hey, Cs get degrees! :wink:

I’d say I am a messy work in progress. VERY messy! I have to trust heavily in God’s forgiveness and grace to not despair of my eternal fate!

On a scale of 0 - 10 – maybe a 0.5 :frowning:



A sinner on the very long road to Sainthood. I have a LONG way to go and God has a lot of work to do in me before I get there but I am truly in LOVE with the Lord and in love with my Catholic Church/Faith. I am blessed and graced much more than I deserve.


.practicing. Hoping to improve.


How come hellbound isn’t an option?

Because we pray for NO ONE to be on that road.


Some people are on it.


But we PRAY for them NOT to be!
