I received an email claiming to be a novena this morning with this picture attached. However, it is nothing more than a chain letter preying on peoples fears and superstitions!! God does not want you to send copies of an email so you can have nice things happen and if you don’t send it terrible things will happen. (Plus it says it was started in 1952, eh, email wasn’t around in 1952 😀 )
If you want to pray, then pray! You can go to mass, or visit the church when its quiet, or stop in the middle of doing the dishes say a prayer and offer it up. Go for a walk in the forest, spend time with people you love, be thankful. Hug your children, plant a flower, smile and be glad because you can. Sending an email is not praying. Sending an email is passive, prayer is interactive, you need to think it, feel it, believe it.
An email cannot mend a broken heart, but faith, hope, love, and kindness definitely will.
