The Power of Prayer
“We should have frequent recourse to prayer, and persevere a long time in it. God wishes to be solicited. He id not weary of hearing us. The treasure of His graces is infinite. We can do nothing more pleasing to him than to beg incessantly that He bestow them upon us.” -St. John Baptist de la Salle
“Let us go forward in peace, our eyes upon heaven, the only one goal of our labors.” -St. Therese of Lisieux
Br Anthony Freeman’s Example
“Love is the greatest form of evangelization because it makes an invisible God visible.” -Jason Evert

A Stingy Man Will Make A Stingy Husband:
Want to avoid ending up with a stingy man?
Set your standards FROM THE BEGINNING!
Example: Never ever EVER go 50-50 on dates. Ever!
He is the man! He is dating YOU!
He asked YOU on a date. He pays! Period!
and if on a date he is expecting you to pay, look at him like he is crazy and then get up and walk out!
Stinginess in a man is a disgusting personality trait that you should never tolerate.
Does that mean if a woman asks me on a date she has to pay? Also aren’t we dating each other?
if she decides to take on the man’s role by asking you out, she pays
Asking out is not “the man’s role.”
Look. I’m 22. I’m Catholic. I’m married. I’m pregnant. I would absolutely love to quit my job tomorrow and be a stay-at-home wife/mother.
In a contemporary poll about gender roles, I would come out looking VERY conservative.
But I asked my husband out. Both times we dated. And sometimes, when we were dating I paid for my own food because we were broke college students and it was more prudent than asking him to pay for both of us. It wasn’t because he was stingy. It wasn’t because I wanted to “take on a man’s role.” It just made more sense.
And I don’t regret it. I don’t feel like less of a woman. My husband doesn’t feel like less of a man.
Now that’s just a personal anecdote, and yes, if you must ask, this is a sensitive topic for me. And yes, I do feel condemned when people try to push this ideology as the single correct standard for interactions between men and women. So you can dismiss this as defensive babbling if you like. But it’s not just me. I have heard so much testimony from women and girls who were damaged by scrupulosity and guilt due to these kinds of “rules” and expectations.
So chill. Stop trying to reprimand/punish women for doing perfectly acceptable things that don’t happen to fit your ideals.
Asking out is the man’s role…..unless of course, you are liberal, feminist whatever, then keep doing you, boo!

What Is Your Vocation or State In Life:
Vocation Discernment aka a process of finding out how best we are called to love God and others.
Are we called to love by serving in a religious community, by serving as a Consecrated Single or by serving our husbands and family in married life?
Vocation Discernment: How best am I called to love?
