Do not for the sake of the Mountain,

    I want to share:

  • When my grandpa opened his eyes wide and recognized me, a tear ran from his left eye. I didn't notice because I was at his right side, but my mom did notice and told me later.
  • Yesterday, she visited him again, and although his eyes were closed, he was smiling. My mom asked him gently if he was seeing Jesus. He nodded yes. Mom encouraged him to follow Him, but grandpa shook his head no, as in, "it's not time yet." Still smiling.
  • My mother was awake since 1:00 a.m. today, feeling restless. At 2:30 a.m. she passed by my room, (I sleep with my door open) and she clearly heard the sound of a kiss.
  • She thought it was me because I have the habit of blowing kisses at her whenever I see her, but when she double-checked, I was asleep.
  • That's when she felt a soft breeze passing by, out of nowhere, and my grandpa's perfume. That's when she knew.
  • The doctors confirmed his time of death was 2:30 a.m.
  • I was able to say goodbye Friday. His soul visited me today to say goodbye one las time, showing his love one last time, with a kiss. I am so grateful for this grace. Growing up, and even as an adult, our way of showing love was to exchange tons of kisses with each other. He was my only grandfather. I was his only grandchild. We spoiled each other rotten with love and affection.

    I am so glad.

    Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let Your perpetual light shine unto him.


    Please pray for me. My suicidal thoughts are getting worse. Usually they are merely annoying, but they've gotten to the point where it's almost all I think about. I don't actually want to die. But it's hard to want to live sometimes. It's getting really bad and I don't know what to do.

    Anon, I am praying very hard for you right now. Holy Mary, pray for us. St Dymphna, pray for us.

    The national suicideand crisis hotline is 988 should you need it. ♥️

    I'm not sure if you are Catholic, but please check out these free Catholic suicide awareness resources. Some great videos, articles and podcast episodes are on this list.


    I’m a practicing Catholic but your sound of music post gave me a mini crisis because I realized I don’t know which knee I genuflect with or which one I’m -supposed- to genuflect with and what if I’ve been doing it wrong this whole time? I assume I’m supposed to touch my right knee to the ground which is what I’ve probably been doing but oh no what if I haven’t? It’s so automatic I don’t even pay attention to it

    Genuflecting on your right knee is reserved for the Blessed Sacrament, when you kneel to your bishop/the Pope/to propose marriage you use the left. It's for this reason that my left thigh is bigger than my right because it's the one I use more, to get back up from genuflecting :P

    I assume that if you have like joint problems or something that itd be better to kneel with the 'wrong' knee than not at all I don't think most people would notice.
