Spiritual News Year's Resolutions

I've decided to do some spiritual New Year's resolutions. Those are the best kind, imo.

1. Go to daily Mass, daily, if possible.
2. Keep up with the daily morning and evening prayer through Magnificat Magazine.
3. To remember to thank God before meals.
4. To use daily opportunities to pray--seeing an ambulance pass by, or a car accident.
Edited to add:
5. To abstain from meat on Fridays.
(This "rule" is still on the books, folks. All Vatican II did, was to add the option of doing another act of penance in place of abstaining from meat. Since I often don't eat meat anyway, it is difficult for me to remember to make sure that's on a Friday, but I'm going to try.)

I think your blog is interesting. As an adpotive mom I deal with mental health issues on a day to day basis. I'm also a PA girl...born and raised! Lived there for 35 years before moving to Minnesota over 9.5 years ago.

I subscribe to the Magnifcat..and I hope in 2007 that I use it more often in my prayer life. You are inspiring me to seek St. Dymphna's help this coming year too!

I'll be putting a link on my sidebar too, 4HisChurch.

Have A Blessed 2007.

Oops...I see I spelled 'adoptive' wrong. Yikes!

Hey, Jayne! My dh is adopted. Adoption is a wonderful gift from God. Thanks for stopping by!

Dymphna's favorite quotes


"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
