Remember to Pray for Me!
Mary Beth Bonacci, writing in Envoy Magazine, says something I've wanted to say, but haven't:
"If anyone stands up here and announces that I’m already in heaven, I want that person removed — forcibly — from the room." And "odds are quite good that, if I did as well as I hope to, I’m currently in purgatory. And I won’t be getting out without some help.
She expresses it a heckuva lot better than I would, as well.
"So pray for me. Keep praying for me. Don’t stop until you’re ready to join me. If you’re Protestant, pray for me anyway. Humor me. Consider it one final favor."
