Yay! August 14, 2009

Reader Carbon Monoxide has a job! He writes:

I have just been offered a wonderful job in Knoxville, TN. I will be moving the whole family there at the end of the next school year (or sooner if they don’t rebel). The offer was so good, I’m almost afraid it is some perverse joke that is being played on me. I will be implementing “intelligent grid” projects in the US and Europe, helping to reduce CO2 and make a safer, more secure, more efficient electric grid.

I have been out of work since May with nothing much happening until I prayed the Novena that I have attached. I finished the Novena and went to Boy Scout camp with my troop in North Carolina and told God to just take over this process. While in NC, I went over to Knoxville to interview at the place mentioned above. Since I’ve been back (about two weeks) I have had 4 job offers, two interviews that I believe will lead to offers and a couple of interviews pending. I literally have people calling me for interviews while I’m in interviews.

I know there is a lot of people hurting out there. Here is the Novena, if you want to pass it on:

Novena to the Thirteen Blessed Souls (Jesus and the Twelve Apostles)

(Please Note – The repeat of the first line is not a mistake it is supposed to be read twice.)

Oh my thirteen Blessed souls so wise and understanding, I ask you for the Love of God that my request be answered.

Oh my thirteen Blessed souls so wise and understanding, I ask you for the Love of God that my request be answered. Of you I ask for the sake of the blood that Jesus shed that my request be answered.

My Lord Jesus Christ that your protection wrap me with your arms. Guard me with your eyes.

O God of kindness you have been my defender in life and death. I ask that you free me from the difficulties that torment me. My thirteen blessed souls so wise and understanding having received the grace I seek from you (state request) I will be devoted to you.

Say Thirteen Our Father’s and Thirteen Hail Mary’s for Thirteen consecutive days. Publish this prayer (share it with a friend) and give a Mass of Thanksgiving.

Before the de rigeur complaints about “meaningless repetition” begin from critics with Improving Advice in my comboxes, please tell me, O Improver, how you understand Paul’s command to “pray without ceasing” and why a prayer like this is in flat violation of it? For myself, it just seems like one way to obey Paul’s command and that Christians would be better employed if they just prayed instead of scrutinizing the (obviously fruitful, in this case) prayer lives of brother Christians in order to find ammunition to shoot them.
