Hurting Priest in 2 Ways Without Even Knowing It

I have come across this beautiful article in ncregister, where it is explained how to maintain a very good relationship without hurting priest knowingly or unknowingly. Priest is a spiritual leader who offered his whole life for his people by acting between God and man to intercede for them and to direct them towards the direction of spiritual path.  The real and wanted  spirItual path could be achieved by creating positive vibration in good actions. Today the world is with full of evil actions that the majority of people are with wrongdoings which are the works of satan. As Fulton Sheen says, “Satan will set up  a counter church.” and it is in the reality now. Coming to the point, it is true that people are generous  and kind towards their priest but in some cases they hurt their priest without their knowledge.

Are priests too consumed with their own power, prestige and importance?

Some are. That’s for sure. My favorites are the ones who put on a front of being consultative while ruling with an iron fist—or the ones who come across all humble and holy while they’re really just showing off.

I know, I know—I should look in the mirror. It is difficult not to fall into the ego trap. May God spare us!

PRAYERS FOR SOULS IN PURGATORY

prayers for souls

prayers for souls Have you lost a loved one who passed away, or know someone who has? Prayers for souls in purgatory can help them! While we can derive great comfort from the hope that our loved ones are enjoying Eternal Life with God, it never hurts to pray for their souls in any case.

In purgatory, the souls of many of those who have died in God’s grace undergo purification so that they may enter heaven.

The Prayer of St. Gertrude, below, is one of the most famous of the prayers for souls in purgatory. St. Gertrude the Great (pictured at left) was a Benedictine nun and mystic who lived in the 13th century. According to tradition, our Lord promised her that 1000 souls would be released from purgatory each time it is said devoutly.

From the excellent book “Purgatory – Explained by the Lives and Legends of the Saints” by Father F.X. Schouppe, S.J., Tan Books, 1986 we read the following accounts which highlight the power and importance of offering holy Masses for the departed. The following is a sincere testimony from the person who experienced several visits from a soul in purgatory, and thus she provides a detailed and frank eye-witness account with regard to the facts:

Holy Mass and the Souls in Purgatory

November 2, The Feast Day of All Souls. Holy Mass and the Souls in Purgatory.

Souls in purgatory

Once we have left this earth, there is nothing we will desire more than the celebration of Holy Mass for our souls. The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the most powerful intercessory prayer, for it surpasses every prayer, every penance and every good work. This will not be difficult for us to understand if we recall that the Sacrifice of the Mass is the same Sacrifice of Jesus which He offered on the Cross and which He now offers on all the Alters with its infinite expiatory value. Jesus immolated, is the true Victim of “Propitiation for our sins” (1 John 2:2) and His Divine Blood is effused “unto remission of sins” (Matt. 26:28). Absolutely nothing can be equaled to the Holy Mass, and the saving fruits of the Sacrifice can be extended to an unlimited number of souls.

Thanksgiving Prayer To God Brings abundant Blessings To Life

We all pray to God everyday and every moment, because we know how to communicate with God through prayers. Among many prayers, thanksgiving prayer to God is the best prayer that brings God’s abundant blessings in one’s life. The secret is that when we give thanks to God in our prayer, it becomes God’s favored one. There are different types of prayers that we normally recite according to our needs and circumstances. The Prayer of faith, the prayer of agreement (also known as corporate prayer), the prayer of request (or supplication), the prayer of thanksgiving, the prayer of worship, the prayer of consecration, the prayer of intercession and the prayer of imprecation. As far as my concern we are often taught to pray when we are in need and when we are satisfied with our needs then we just forget about all that we have received or not.
