novena

i didn't know that i was inlove. hehehe. actually, i really am not. almost everyone who left a comment in my last post (Moments) said that i was inlove. i'm not. promise! as in there's no one in my life right now. not even a kilig someone. none. sad noh? but it's true. and i'm okay with it.

honest. i'm okay even if i have a zero lovelife. every thursday, i'm doing a novena to St. Jude. as in i really go to mendiola to attend the novena mass there. i have been doing it for four consecutive weeks already (5 more to go). St. Jude is the patron saint for hopeless cases.

my officemates know that i'm doing this novena and they are all teasing me if i'm really deperate of having a boyfriend already. honestly, it's not what i'm praying for. it would just come as a bonus if ever. honestly, i'm not a hopeless case even with what i'm praying for, i know i can have it (to the smallest details) in the right time. i know God will not abandon me. i'm sure He will give it to me. i just go there because an officemate invited me and i just can't say no. hehehe.

but yesterday when another officemate asked me what am i praying for.. i said: "just wait after a month.. i'll already be thin."

after saying that, it got me thinking... i now know at where i am a hopeless case. it's in slimming down :)

Psalm 37:4
Delight yourself in the LORD, and He will give you the desires of your heart

For me, di hopeless ang pagpa slim. Why do you want to slim Tin? :)

Hahaha. Ate tin-tin talaga.

I agree (with the guys... hahaha) that we tend to be superficially picky when it comes to girls. if you think you don't have a problem with your attitude (which I think you are... x-ing fingers ^_^),

Buy the Pilates dvd and say goodbye to your cellulite.

Hey I was baptized in that church. It was still a chapel then and the St Jude catholic school wasn't around yet. Tagal na ano? Anyways, my Mom probably thought I was going to be a hopeless case that's why she chose that chapel for my baptism, haha. Was she ever right on that...

Anyways, prayers might help, Tin. But there is still no substitute for dieting and exercise. If slimming down is indeed what you are praying for... ;-)

Good luck, and happy weekend.

BW said...

No worries Tin. Your BIG day will come I'm quite sure. Trust me - it does come when you least expect it ! :)

The last novena I did was the First Nine Fridays about 25 years ago or so.

I have never heard of a novena to St. Jude.

While I do pray to St. Jude. I mostly pray to Mary, Joseph and Michael (and now my mom) ... and of course, God!

Good luck with your novena.

vina: i believe i have more important things to accomplish pa. hehe ;p

neil: i have a pilates dvd pero di ko masyado makuha. hehe. so aminado kang superficially picky ka? :)

snglguy: you really are a manila boy. for me, it's really a sacrifice going there. layo!! hahaha. i do exercise and sometimes (or rarely, hehe), i choose my food :)

Toe said...

mostly mga reviewees nag-nonovena dun sa St. Jude diba? marami kasing review centers sa area dun. hopeless daw kasing makapasa sa boards. too bad, i wasn't able to go and visit that chapel nung nagreview ako sa manila. my fave church is yung San Sebastian, ang ganda talaga then walking distance lang. nagnonovena ako every wednesdays dun, shempre para makapasa. hehehhe...

prayers give you the much needed boost to overcome being discouraged. and God likes it when we include Him kahit sa maliliit na bagay. so maybe you've been praying for the strength to say no to tempting cholesterol-laden food and the urge to be lazy with your fitness schedule. :)

The claim is that if you receive communion on 9 consecutive first fridays of the month, you will not die without receiving Holy Eucharist and last rites.
