7 Quick Takes 14DEC2012

1. I have a job interview today. Please say a prayer for me.

2. Hands down, my favorite Christmas song of all time is O Come O Come Emmanuel.

3. This post makes 884 on this blog. I had a goal of 1,000 posts on this blog by the end of the year, but that appears to have fallen through. I just don't seem to have the time/inspiration of other people to post 3 or 4 times a day.

4. Somehow I still need to get presents for my parents and brother and get them sent across the country before Christmas. It'll work out somehow.

5. My favorite image thus far from Catholic Memes.
Devil Went Down To Georgia

6. "O God and Lord of the Powers, and Maker of all creation, Who, because of Thy clemency and incomparable mercy, didst send Thine Only-Begotten Son and our Lord Jesus Christ for the salvation of mankind, and with His venerable Cross didst tear asunder the record of our sins, and thereby didst conquer the rulers and powers of darkness; receive from us sinful people, O merciful Master, these prayers of gratitude and supplication, and deliver us from every destructive and gloomy transgression, and from all visible and invisible enemies who seek to injure us. Nail down our flesh with fear of Thee, and let not our hearts be inclined to words or thoughts of evil, but pierce our souls with Thy love, that ever contemplating Thee, being enlightened by Thee, and discerning Thee, the unapproachable and everlasting Light, we may unceasingly render confession and gratitude to Thee: The eternal Father, with Thine Only-Begotten Son, and with Thine All-Holy, Gracious, and Life-Giving Spirit, now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen." -- prayer from Saint Basil the Great

7. "And we know that to them that love God all things work together unto good: to such as, according to his purpose, are called to be saints." -- Romans 8:28

May God bless all who read my ramblings,
