Hello!
« on: April 22, 2021, 05:17:11 AM »
Hello. I'm a traditional Catholic and live in Poland. I would like to know more about my faith and meet other traditional Catholics from all over the world. Dominika is my real name, I'm single, hope to become a wife and mother according to God's will. I like J.R.R Tolkien's books as well as "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy movies, documentary movies, especially about nature and history.  My favourite book is "The Mystical City of God" by Mary of Agreda. I enjoy cooking, gardening, listening to instrumental music, learning and reading.
I love our Lord Jesus and His Blessed Mother, I also have a special devotion to saint Joseph and saint Anne and Joachim. Yesterday I visited a nearest health resort and was so happily surprised because I found a beautiful, old chapel of saint Anne there. I'm glad to be a member of this forum.

Welcome!
In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”

Hello fellow Tolkiener! Ever read Children of Hurin or Silmarillion?

Hello. My great grandparents are from Poland. King Sobieski. I like Marius Pudzinowski. Perogis with Mexican hot sauce is tasty.

Welcome here.

Hello and welcome.

Welcome to the forum; I am also a big fan of both the Lord of the Rings (books & movies) and of the Mistical City of God. Good reading material. Also I would like to recommend a book by St. Alphonsus Liguori, "The Practice of the Love of Our Lord Jesus Christ". A short work but a great summary of the spiritual life and how much Our Lord loves us.

Sanctify yourselves in the times wherein God has placed you; bewail the evils and the disorders which God tolerates; oppose them with the energy of your works and your efforts, your life uncontaminated by error, free from being led astray, in such a way that having lived here below, united with the Spirit of the Lord, you will be admitted to be made but one with Him forever and ever: But he who is joined to the Lord is one in spirit."

Dominika,  what a beautiful name.  You sound perfect for the forum. Before Covid Era I went to a Catholic Women's  book club reading "Mystical City of God" too (we spelled it your way). I enjoy Tolkien too and should revisit some of it.

Welcome!
[Matthew 8:26]  And Jesus saith to them: Why are you fearful, O ye of little faith? Then rising up he commanded the winds, and the sea, and there came a great calm.

[Job  38:1-5]  Then the Lord answered Job out of a whirlwind, and said: [2] Who is this that wrappeth up sentences in unskillful words? [3] Gird up thy loins like a man: I will ask thee, and answer thou me. [4] Where wast thou when I laid up the foundations of the earth? tell me if thou hast understanding. [5] Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?

Jesus, Mary, I love Thee! Save souls!

Thank you, I will read "The Practice of the Love of Our Lord Jesus Christ" for sure.

Dominika,
I missed the part about you wanting to become a wife and mother; pray to St. Joseph to send you a saintly Catholic husband and a happy marriage.
I have this short prayer to St. Joseph (with imprimatur; 1938) that you can say seven times daily, here:
Quote
Oh great St. Joseph for the love you bear to Jesus and Mary hear my prayer and obtain my petition
this from the pamphlet that has the prayer:
Quote
Great St. Joseph
Would that we had the eloquence of St. Chrysostom to tell all men how kind and good St. Joseph is, he is powerful with God who refuses him nothing how generous he is to his clients for he always hears their prayers. Books could be filled with the stories of how he helps the sick, consoles the sorrowful and comes to the aid of those in need.
He was the loving spouse of Holy Mary and therefore obtains happy marriages for those who pray to him. More, he makes  happy the marriages that are unhappy and restores peace and joy to families in distress.
He was the Foster Father of the Child Jesus and no father ever loved a child as St. Joseph loved Jesus. For this reason he is all powerful in helping fathers and mothers to bring up their children with prudence and love making them good men and women, good husbands and wives, good citizens and useful members of society.
There is more, I will post it in the traditional Catholic thread when I get a chance.
