A Morning Thought @ 1262



  1. When I was 7 years old in 1963 and attending a Catholic school, the nuns told us that if we said 5 "Our Fathers" and 5 "Hail Marys" it would get one person's soul out of Purgatory. I think, but can't remember because it was a looong time ago (1963!), there was also some prayer quantification for getting a baby's soul out of Limbo. And we were told if we prayed for the souls of people who were in Purgatory, it would reduce their time there - so it was good to pray for anyone you loved because, after all, since 'everyone is a sinner' their souls might be in Purgatory. Ah, the BS we were taught by the Catholic Church. LOL. At 7-8 years old, we would say the prayers really fast in our minds, slurring the words together, and then feel really good about ourselves - really "holy"! "In 2 minutes of prayer this morning, I freed a dozen souls from Purgatory so they could go to Heaven and freed another dozen babies souls trapped in Limbo so they could be reborn. I'm half-way to sainthood!" LOL, again.

    Then in 2007 Limbo for infants was officially done away with...just like that! Millions of prayers over centuries for fuck all. Why do people believe such shite?
