From a reader:
Could you please say a prayer for me?
I have a really bad vice of procrastination [from the Latin cras, "tomorrow"] that has gotten me into a heap of trouble at school and even frequent confession hasn’t helped. I’m still under academic probation from last year’s effects of procrastination. I can’t afford to lose my internship and get kicked out of school in my graduation year.
I’ve got the elbow grease and a novena to St. Expeditus to get me through the lag work of paper writing, but sadly it’s at the sacrifice of Thursday and Friday night Mass, so I need all the extra help I can get.
A prayer for you? About procrastination?
Sure, I guess I’ll eventually get around to it. Maybe tomorrow?
Seriously, I always pray, right away, for people who ask for prayers.
