If you died today . . . Could you pass St. Peter's single test question in order to get into heaven?
Here's his question:
Did you make time in your life to help the poor and suffering?
A "Yes" gets you in. A "No" leaves you out.
"Not everyone who calls me their Lord will get into the kingdom of heaven. For it is not the hearers of the word who are saved, but it is the doers." Matthew 27:21

Pray in your car, pray in the bathroom at work and pray at home as often as you can. Pray a few "Our Father" or a few of our Catholic prayers each time.
Then listen and watch as you pray, after you pray and act on what good you hear in your mind or see happening around you. God will speak more and do more as you take action for charity's sake. Bro. Joseph +

Just saw a program on TV and in it, a doctor said it takes 18 months for the brain to detox completely from the effects of meth. He said it takes 90 days in rehab and an addict should go to sober living for at least a year.
The first days off meth (usually because of lack of funds) triggers depression and fits of crying. One point of meth sells for $10 and a person typically needs 7 - 8 points per week to avoid withdrawal.
Lastly, most become locked into a vicious cycle of highs and lows, usually for the rest of their life. Only a miracle of God can save from meth self-destruction. Photo: Macaulay Culkin before and after meth.

Yet, Hope has a name, it's Jesus! He inspires us by saying, "Blessed are you that weep and mourn for one day you shall laugh," Luke 6:21
