So I am trying to lead a saintly live. Since my conversion back to the Faith I have cut back on a lot of sin. I'm still a rotten sinner with a long way to go but now instead of going to hell at the speed of light, I am now only headed there at the speed of sound.
Anyhoo, since I have been trying to amend my ways the devil has been attacking me in my sleep. Last night I had a dream that I committed grave sin, went to Confession, forgot to confess it then went to Communion. Right after Communion I recalled the sin then fell into despair over the sacrilegious confession and Communion. It really causes me a ton of grief in my dreams. I have also had the dream where I am all of the sudden in line for Communion and I realize that I am wearing jeans and sans mantilla. I guess that is the Catholic girl's version of the dream about going to high school naked.
I suppose it's time to start sprinkling my bed with Holy Water at night! Anything to avoid going here:
41 If I shall whet my sword as the lightning, and my hand take hold on judgment: I will render vengeance to my enemies, and repay them that hate me. 42 I will make my arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh, of the blood of the slain and of the captivity, of the bare head of the enemies.
Since it seems germane to the topic of hell, here's a good word of the day,
1 : to haul under the keel of a ship as punishment or torture
*2 : to rebuke severely
