March 25, 2011

Holy God, I ask your blessings on my Bishop and my pastor and priests in Rome who have assisted me in the process of being re-instated into the Roman Catholic Church and I forsake all connection with the Roman Catholic Women Priests program via Internet or otherwise.

I thank you for the efforts of my family in my behalf and ask for Jesus’ Light and Love to pour over my husband of 47 years and my five children.

Forgive me my Beloved Jesus and Mother Mary for pursuing my own will in this matter of ordination and as I consecrate myself to your Divine Will through the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I ask you to pour out Light and Love upon any who have placed themselves outside of your Love and Light Bless us, O Lord, for these thy gifts and place us in the Heart of the Father, as we pray for more priests to serve in our church and for vocations to enrich our Church in the United States.

Forgive us for failing in obedience and enrich us in your Holy Love, I pray through Jesus and Mary. Fiat+

WDTPRS KUDOS to Norma Jean Coon.

    Good for you, Norma Jean!
    Humility and obedience is best!

    What a beautiful prayer of repentance, all the more difficult for her in that her sin (and repentance) have been carried out in a very public manner. I sense that her family (and husband) had a role in assisting her to genuine contrition. May she and her family be blessed.

    (I wonder: why does this sort of repentance seem so rare? Is it truly rare, or are these cases of public sinners repenting simply not reported on by an indifferent, or even hostile, media – including Catholic media?)

    Wonderful! Yes, God bless her and welcome home!

    @Thomas G.: It would appear that Ms. Coon started withdrawing from the Womenpriests (“Down with patriarchy! Down with spaces between words!”) movement almost before the attempted ordination.

    So my hunch is that we haven’t seen more stories like this because the vast majority of women either experience pangs of conscience and withdraw well before an attempted ordination, or they follow through all the way and are too deeply committed to the movement by the time those pangs come (if they come).

    Stunningly beautiful! The overt and also implied presence of the Immaculate Conception is overwhelming.

    Asked about life in general, St. John Bosco simply chose to reply, “I have prayed and trusted in the Madonna.” I think about that a lot lately and I see it here.

    Wonderful news. God bless her and her family. How approprate that the update on her site came on the Feast of the Anunciation, when the most holy of all women said yes to God.

    Responding to God’s grace can often be hard….especially when it means publicly admitting you were going against His will. May her conscience now know peace and rest.
