Well the fun and peace of winter is over, and already the armies of evil are emerging from their strongholds to begin their spring campaign. Yesterday evening, on an old secular forum site that I have been, for the most part, peacefully hanging out on; a Protestant attacked something I posted regarding Our Lady and engaging in the usual anti-Marian trash. I am engaging in a little bit of apologetics, but for the most part, I'm trying to ignore him and pray for him. However, a woman from of all places Poland, who admitted both there and elsewhere that she's a fallen away Catholic; commented on that thread and said that she never understood devotion to Mary and always felt that it was a form of adoration. On top of that, another guy came on the thread and started peacefully asking questions about venerating Our Lady, which I'm focusing on explaining well, his username is "EzraS" I'm not sure whether it's his real name of not. Please pray for all these people, and pray that I fair well in engaging in apologetics and evangelization here, I'm trying really hard to focus on God first and foremost during this ordeal. But moving on to my original plans for Lent, (sorry this prayer request is so long, just hear me out) I have two big plans for Lent. First, is that I want to open up with my parents about my childhood, now that I have finally healed from my wounds, and I plan on opening up to them on the Feast of the Annunciation, after renewing my Marian Consecration. The second plan I'm working on, is that I'm discerning whether or not to contact and speak with a certain individual by the name of Kevin Franklin. I'm confident that I could speak with him in a safe way, provided that it was the Lord's will, but I want to really discern whether that's best thing for the two of us. I'll be making my final decision, again, on the Feast of the Annunciation, in the time I plan on praying for Kevin Franklin and souls like him, including prayerfully taking cold showers for them every morning! So those are my prayer requests and plans for Lent, sorry again that this is such a long post. Please pray for me and everyone involved. I'm also praying offering up reparations for all that's been happening in the Church as well.
