A Great Investment
One of the best investments I know of is to pray for the Souls in Purgatory. The way I see it, the more souls I help to get out of Purgatory, the less time I'll have to spend there {and the less time in Purgatory, the better!}.
Every soul I help to get out of Purgatory is another Saint in Heaven praying for me.

One Of My Favorite Quotes
Slightly adapted from a post in "Random Things By Rochelle Theresa Brown"
"From silly devotions and sour-puss saints, good Lord, deliver us."
St. Teresa of Avila.
{Some translators have "sour-FACED saints.}
And now, my own deep, brilliant observations:
I know that there are times when Christians should be sober, but there are many more times when we should be joyful. I mean, what's the point of going around looking like we don't expect to go to Heaven?

Cast into Hell Satan

Whenever I say the Prayer to St. Michael, when I get to the words "cast into Hell Satan".. oh, the contempt and loathing with which I pronounce the name Satan!

Prayer Times

I'm trying to work out a schedule for myself; to set aside certain fixed times for prayer. Update: I'm still working out my schedule, but I've figured out that, for the most part, I have to be more flexible than I would be if I were in a convent or monastery. Maybe I should set it within certain parameters, except for Mass, Chaplet of Divine Mercy, and Benediction.
