Good Afternoon, Sister. I find your blog both educational and entertaining! Might I convince you to tell us a bit more about your experiences with worm composting, please? I find that there is often a big difference between the theory behind something and the actuality of day to day life with, say, a bin of worms and trash.SEE VIDEO BY TOPIC: Prayer for a Good Husband

Looking for a husband? Pray to St Agnes...
I heard something about praying to St. Agnes the eve of St. A few questions, has anyone heard anything about this? Is this possible? Dose anyone have any detailed links about it? My friend and I were gonna do a Novena of St. Anyone have any more information? I also ask if this is possible is because I struggle with saints and Mary as it is. I do not believe that for a second.
That smacks of superstition which would be a grave sin against the First Commandment. I have to agree with the other response. The saints are there to help us in our spiritual walk. Praying to St. In that case I have a question. What is the difference between that and say for example praying to St. Odilia who is known for curing people with eye problems? Or praying to St. Joseph and burying a statue of him upside-down in your yard when you have trouble selling your house?
Is this OK or is this also a misuse of our friends the Saints? Is it just because the St. Agnes thing is about the future?
Or is there more to it than that? Yes I agree with you to be honest. Though are you sure it would be a grave sin? Is superstition a grave sin? Well I guess only if you know that your being superstitious because then it would be full knowledge but beside that how is it a grave sin are you sure this is a grave matter? Yeah I believe the same. I think instead of praying to St.
Agnes for a dream of your future spouse instead we should pray to St. Agnes for our future spouse and perhaps for an increase of purity in our lives,. I think their prayers help us to long for Him more and that their lives show us examples of how to long for God and how to grow closer to Him. I have a friend who says something around this same thing dealing with St. Anthony when trying to find lost things. I can see where with all these saints we can misuse them very easily and forget that we are not praying to them rather we asking for their prayers to pray to God in order for our given request to be granted.
We are asking for their intercession so that we may grow closer to God. I personally find it a bit silly to bury a statue of St.
Now when it comes down to it we can ask for miracles and God wants us to ask for everything on our heart. Matthew Ask, and it shall be given you: seek, and you shall find: knock, and it shall be opened to you. Joseph to pray for your house to be sold quickly and efficiently I would defiantly ask family and friends to help with prayers with that.
As for the St. That when we ask we must have faith that things will happen if they are His will and that if it is His will it will happen in His time. When you pray to St. Odilia, you are petitioning her intercession for a particular and legitimate need.
You must remember, of course, that it is ultimately God that heals, praying to the saint is merely to ask her to pray for you, much as you would ask a living loved one. If you were to ask St. Agnes to pray for you to find a good husband, that would be a legitimate prayer to make. However, saying a prayer with the expectation that your future husband will be revealed to you is a superstitious form of divination.
The difference really lies in your attitude and assumptions. Someone praying for help with something is a petitioner approaching God and his servants with humility and receptivity. The practice of burying an image of St. I personally would feel much better simply praying to St. Joseph for help in selling the house and spare his image from burial.
I agree with you. I think having the statue around your house would probably bring about more prayer on your part then burying it in front of your home. Though maybe putting the statue outside until you sell your home might be good practice to help you pray. Perhaps the burying of the statue brings about prayer which is always good though as we keep saying it all about the persons motives.
Paul says that everything is permissible for him, but not everything is beneficial. There are a lot of gray areas in practical spirituality where a practice can be either very holy or very superstitious, depending on how a person approaches it. I am finishing a postgraduate program in Medieval Studies and I recently did a paper on magic and superstition during that period and how the Church approached it.
For most of the Middle Ages, people engaged in all sorts of practices that danced around the fine line between superstition and faith and the Church allowed them to do so. Around the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, religious authorities became more concerned about eliminating debatable practices. I think both approaches have value. The point is that affective piety is not necessarily a bad thing, nor is making requests about mundane matters. Daily life is important and maybe in burying St.
Joseph statues a person may be an appropriate method of petitioning the carpenter saint who worked with his hands for his help in selling your house. That is frowned on by the Church. It is also superstition which is a grave sin against the First Commandment. All superstition is a grave sin.
CCC The first commandment forbids honoring gods other than the one Lord who has revealed himself to his people. It proscribes superstition and irreligion. Superstition in some sense represents a perverse excess of religion; irreligion is the vice contrary by defect to the virtue of religion.
CCC Superstition is the deviation of religious feeling and of the practices this feeling imposes. It can even affect the worship we offer the true God, e. To attribute the efficacy of prayers or of sacramental signs to their mere external performance, apart from the interior dispositions that they demand, is to fall into superstition.
This matter of doing such things as burying a statue upside down to sell your house, etc. The purpose of holy pictures, statues and icons is to remind us of the Saints and the holiness of their lives so we can imitate them in their virtues, and lead us into a deeper relationship with God, NOT to make them into objects of superstition.
That is insulting to the Saints and to God. Any prayer that is answered through their intercession is answered by God through their prayers, and it is God who allows them to hear our prayers for intercession. The Saints are not to be manipulated, and neither is God. I know I am ranting here, but think of this…when non-Catholics see people doing these things, it is no wonder they think that is what Catholics do. And then we have to spend time trying to explain to them that what they have seen is not what we are supposed to be doing, instead of spending the time evangelizing to Christ and the Church.
We have to waste time defending against superstitious practices that they know Catholics have engaged in, because they have read these things in the paper or on the internet, or seen us do them. We have to take some responsibility for our part in the myths that are perpetuated against the Church when we engage in such practices, and not just chalk it up to their ignorance of our Faith.
So if anyone is doing these things, please stop. Educate yourself on Church teachings, pray to the Saints in a proper manner for their intercession, and use the reason and common sense that God gave you. Enough said. This came from a poem written by Keats, not the Church. It is very supersticious, saying that you have to go to bed without supper, not look behind you before going to bed, sleep without clothes, and keep your hands under your pillow in order for this to happen.
But, you should always pray for your future spouse, and St Agnes is a wonderful intercessor for that. You should not look for or do a ritual for visions or spiritual priveledges…God will reach you as He sees fit, just trust in that. Now I know that this is just silly superstition. When I was younger however, I was not very educated on the Catholic Faith. One of my friends told me about this, so I decided to give it a try. The result: I had a dream about my brother. Something tells me this is not accurate.

“St. Anne, bring me a man as fast as you can!”
Theresa Hoiles , Elizabeth Carr. Most cultures and societies around the world have their own unique methods for finding love. For instance, in Genoa, Italy, a yearly celebration commemorates the generosity of Count Fieschi of Lavagna who, in , threw a party with a foot cake. Townsfolk remember him with a parade and a little romance: they pin to their clothing a piece of paper--blue for men, white for women--on which a specific word is written. When they find someone wearing the same word, the couple is given a piece of cake. And the rest is up to them! This charming practice and many others can be found in Love, Luck, and Lore. In this little book of love, Theresa Hoiles and Elizabeth Carr have collected celebrations and spell rhymes, fortune-telling tricks and food charms to help you snag that guy you've seen at the local coffeehouse.
Novena to Saint Anne for Finding a Husband
Or so they say. The man who does love her, Porphyro, takes more active steps. His family is in a deadly feud with hers like Romeo and Juliet's Montagues and Capulets , so he creeps into her house while everyone is drunk and hides in her bedroom. Keats's imagined medieval world here is an early essay in Gothic revival, a pre-Pugin fantasy of gold, silver, amethyst, ivory, diamond-paned casements, carved stone, and spiced dainties from silken Samarcand.

Prayer for a husband
Tennyson and Victorian Periodicals : Commodities in Context. Kathryn Ledbetter. This is the first book-length study of Tennyson's record of publication in Victorian periodicals. Despite Tennyson's supposed hostility to periodicals, Ledbetter shows that he made a career-long habit of contributing to them and in the process revealed not only his willingness to promote his career but also his status as a highly valued commodity.
Maybe your heart is breaking. Or, maybe you just want to see eye-to-eye with your spouse. Whatever your romantic woe — we have one simple question: Have you considered prayer? Yes, really. Some might call it guided meditation, but as Catholics we usually call this kind of practice prayer, and it often involves asking others who have gone before us to intercede on our behalf. Yes — those lost causes.
8 Saints You’ll Want Interceding for Your Love Life
The Catholic devotions and folklore of Medieval Europe are fascinating and enchanting in ways unlike any others. They are full of tales, customs, Romantic golden legends, and an intermingling of the supernatural and natural worlds in ways no longer seen in modern society. One particularly interesting custom was a devotion to Saint Agnes that was rumored to result in a young woman having a vision of her future husband in a dream. Saint Agnes, who was martyred for refusing to marry a rich man, was a highly venerated saint in the Middle Ages, and considered a patron saint of young girls. According to the tradition, young women would spend a day fasting. That night, they would take a sprig of rosemary and a sprig of thyme and sprinkle them with Holy Water. They would then put one sprig in a shoe and place it on one side of the bed, then do the same with another sprig on the other side. Before falling asleep they would pray, "Saint Agnes, that's to lovers kind, come ease the trouble of my mind, let me my future husband view, and be my vision chaste and true.
But only now though that I give this a try. I saw myself wearing my beautiful white wedding gown in the dream. How I wish I was able to see who I got married with, because I already woke up. That dream could be wishful thinking… or must be a providential sign from Heaven.
