  • No one is praying to you, eringobrough, and if they really is some one doing that, tell them to stop it, tell them not to do that, that you are only a human.

    I'm OK with people asking (or praying) to me.  But if anyone worshipped me as God did - I would tell them to stop that immediately!!!! Only God is to be worshipped and I am no where worthy enough to even come close to that.  I'm sincerely sorry that you have such trouble understanding that the word "pray" does not have to mean "worship".  That it can and does mean simply to ask.  And that praying to saints isn't about worshipping someone other than God or trying to get around God's will - but it's about understanding that there is a communion of saints made up of believers here on earth and in heaven and that we're united through Jesus Christ.

  • Not to be rude but maybe you should stop talking to dead people and start relying on God wholly.

  • Stay focused on a job and your strengths not only the best job for you - put aps everywhere. Every hospital, every church, every copany you drive by within x miles of your house.

    Maybe try some volunteer work to enable those supervisors to give great recommendations of you.

    be careful of wikipedia people can write in themselves into those defs.

    Just try googling Saint Cajetan -

    Good Luck!!!
