I just posted the next Chapter of I Want to See God under Formation. It is about the Prayer of Recollection which is one of the beginning stages of prayer for St. Teresa to explain to us. The essence of it is the Practice of the Presence of God. I have already written on it and it can not be emphasized enough. If we were to practice the Presence of God throughout our day - we would think twice about what we say to others; what we do and how we act. It would help us to be the saints that we dream of being.
Please go to the July Archives to re-read the post on Practicing the Presence of God.
I will post before the Feast of All Souls an excerpt from the Dialogues on Purgatory by St. Catherine of Genoa. Please look for that before the Feast Day which is coming up quickly.
Praying for the souls in Purgatory is such an advantageous thing to do for our own souls. Many worldlings know how to make the best investments in the stock market. I look at the devotion to the souls in Purgatory in the same way! We can help them and they can help us!
Let us make an effort this November to intensify our prayers for those who have gone before us!
Do not forget to go to the July Archives for The Practice of the Presence of God.
Thank you and God bless your day through the prayers and intercession of Our Good Queen and Mother!
