Dirt on the Soul

The week before Christmas I went to confession, and was feeling all clean and fresh for the Holy Day and the start of the new year. I looked forward to becoming a better Catholic in 2013.


Feeling disgusted with my sinful, weak self who has already taken the easy way in important areas instead of the more difficult path.

I just want to cry.

Also, skipped saying my novena yesterday. Does that mean I double-up today or extend the novena for an extra day? What's the proper procedure?

Another non-edyfing behavior I partook in was following a dude-friend into the store at the mall. I knew better. Yuck. Do NOT enter that store. It's base. Just seeing some of those products made me want to take a shower.

Lord, have mercy.

I'd like to know the answer on the novena. I have a bad habit of doing them before I go to bed and almost always end up forgetting at least one day. I've done both doubling up and extending it... and just foregoing the whole thing.

I don't have the Novena answer either... I also say the Novena's at night ... and this Mary, Undoer of Knots novena that I'm saying is basically like saying the rosary instead of just a simple prayer. And I've fallen asleep one night instead of saying it ... when I was already 2 days in. So ... now what? I guess I'll tack 2 days onto the end of the novena. It wouldn't hurt, right? ;-)
