“Sir, it’s going to take a pretty thick rug for that kind of praying.”

“Sir, it’s going to take a pretty thick rug for that kind of praying.”
(Preacher’s response to WWII General George Patton’s prayer request,
which was subsequently granted.)

Now we come to another prayer request … not from a military general … but from Father Ryan Erlenbush, at The New Theological Movement website … which will also require “a pretty thick rug”:

I propose that, during the month of May, we join together in a campaign for the family Rosary. To promote the family Rosary, we would do well to begin with a month of prayer. I suggest that, through a joint spiritual effort, we offer prayers every day during May for the renewal of the family Rosary and in preparation for an active Family Rosary Campaign in which we would engage during the month of October (the Month of the Rosary).

If you have a blog, or a facebook page or twitter account, please consider promoting this Family Rosary Campaign!

What to give up for Lent?

Q: What to give up for Lent?

A: There’s no specific requirement, but might I suggest giving up lunch?

Instead of eating lunch, you fast.

You take the money you would have spent on lunch, and you donate it to the poor. That’s alms giving.

And since you’re not eating during lunch, you use the time to talk to God. That’s prayer.

Fasting. Alms giving. Prayer.

That about covers it! (And it works for me)
