Prayer request


First, I want to apologize to all who participated in my thread entitled “I need convincing in regards to marijuana” for my lack of responses. I have been *swamped *with schoolwork and fraternity rush activities over the past week, and I’ve had little time for much else.

That said, I want to thank you all SO much for your kind advice, encouragement, and opinions. This week in RCIA, my instructor talked about the fact that the formal conversion process is more than just a series of instructive classes. On a more profound level, it’s a conversion of one’s heart and mind in an effort to conform one’s life more closely to the Christian faith and the Church as the Body of Christ. Consequently, I’m praying for that conversion, and I’m trying to shed some of my less admirable habits; I haven’t smoked a cigarette in a month, and I haven’t touched pot in about ten days.

Just in case I am tempted, I ask for your prayers, that the Holy Spirit may guard me against succumbing to temptation again. I will be praying for all of you, and especially Ana, as i know you’re facing a bit of a dilemna yourself. Thanks again for your charity and love!

God bless,



Good luck on this process. We all wish you success in doing what is best for your body and soul. With God you can overcome this need and the temptations that will follow. Keep us posted!


Obviously you are facing many temptations when you are in college. Our sons say the same. I will add you to your prayer list.
