The Month of August


#1

August was the month that I reverted to the Catholic Faith, and I was planing on, and in some instances, have already begun celebrating it. However I still have to finish my university course, I have only just started typing my final assignment essay, although I do have a fair amount of information to work with. I have to get my assignment done by August 7th at the very latest, as August 8th is when I do my final exam.

A few other things I’m working on right now are, I’m starting to really focus on evangelizing my family, (my dad is non-practicing Catholic, my mom was brought up Anglican and is now secular, and my brother had a bit of formation in his early life, and is now an atheist.) I’ve start doing a new set of first Saturday Devotions for my dad, and will probably do another set for my mom after that. My Summer Campaign is still going on, M. has started speaking with me again, it turns out that the reason he went silent was because the site we’re on, has issues with its PM-ing system. I’ll be speaking with P. on the 13th if he still needs me help free him from his grave activities. As for A., I think he may have actually left his grave “lifestyle” some time ago, and simply hasn’t closed down his account, keep him in your prayers either way though.

Overall, I’d like prayers said in thanksgiving for my reversion to the Faith. (specifically it happened sometime just before the Feast of the Assumption, though I forget the exact date.) Prayers that I can finally finish my university course in time, and do it well. And Finally prayers for my family, my friends, and the specific individuals mentioned above.

Thanks

Father Joseph,
you taught Jesus how to work and play,
help us to realize that
we can only gain knowledge
by listening and learning.
With you to help and guide us we pray,
O Saint Joseph,
that we will choose the right path
and will remain faithful to the teachings of Jesus.
Amen.

Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done
on earth, as it is in heaven.

Thanks everyone, my conversation with M. has concluded a few days ago, he was annoyed with the poor quality of the secular site’s PM-ing system, and said he was a tad disturbed by how long are conversation went.

I’ll be speaking with P. this Monday, please keep both him and M. in your prayers.

Prayer of Thanks to God

Blessed are You, Lord God:
Blessed are You forever.
Holy is Your name:
Blessed are You forever.
Great is Your mercy for Your people:
Blessed are You forever.

Amen!

Collect for the Feast of the Assumption

Father in heaven,
All creation rightly gives you praise
for all life and all holiness come from You.
In the plan of Your wisdom,
she who bore the Christ in her womb
was raised body and soul in glory
to be with Him in heaven.
May we follow her example
in reflecting our holiness
and join in her hymn of endless life and praise.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
