Dear Caveys, Can you please put a prayer request up onto your blog? I need prayers of faithful Catholics who understand. And I am not ashamed to admit my weakness here! "After two crippling pregnacies, each with painful and slow recoveries (with infections, fainting spells, crippling of body, heart palpatations... I'm STILL recovering and struggling massively) I am being sorely tempted by Satan to use artificial birth control. The temptation is nearly overwhelming. We don't have anyone at all that can teach us NFP. The fertility groups here talk about how they have this great NFP to teach but, "sorry we don't have anyone to teach it to you." End of story. I'm trying to get my hands on a home-study course from the Couple to Couple League folks in America but it's proving to be difficult as my billing address hardly works on American web sites. Please everyone, pray for me that I resist the temptation to use artificial birth control. And please pray for me that if I become pregnant again that God helps us ~ because we don't have any help. None. And I'm disabled and we have three small children. I can't even drive. Being Catholic here is very difficult. We don't even have any practical support from the Church. No one to teach NFP. No ministry to help mothers while pregnant or after they have children. Nothing available from social services. Nothing. We are on our own. Please pray for us. Thank you so much for your help and God bless! (P.S. My husband is becoming a Catholic!!) ~Coffee Catholic"
Did you notice that the loonies at Steubenville were all old? This craziness will die out soon, one way or another.
Two things I learned from this video. Pentacostalists wave their hands a lot and if you're a woman who carries a wide load never, ever wear khaki pants.
Hootenany or not, it's infinitely preferable to that creepy liturgical dance with the smoldering pots in LA.
Is that a "priest" speaking in "tongues"? (Could it be that he couldn't memorize the Latin but CAN mutter gobbledygook?)St. Francis would be scandalizedThank God for the young people of Wynona ~ who recognize the TruthVeni Creator Spiritus
Wow! a square dance (or is it a Virginia Reel?) in the middle of mass. The FUS has for decades been a center for Catholic charismatic practices. The Baptists don't generally do this so--or at least the So. Baptists don't--but there are lots of pentecostal communities that do and do it better than FUS--I agree!The contrast between the two videos can't be put into words.
The charismatic folk there do not look like students at the university. No no no, don't say they are the professors !
Coffee Catholic -Have you looked into learning NFP from a book. No one taught us NFP either, my wife just purchased a couple books. One of the books was not Catholic and more feminist in nature. But it was very good at the clinical aspect of NFP. The other book was very good in that it was Catholic and advised on the proper use (and not abuse) of NFP but it was less helpful according to my wife in regards to the actual clinical application.Anyway, if you need book recommendations, please let me know and I will get the titles from my wife.Thanks,Confiteor
