Comments Are Now Moderated

A fellow blogger who goes by the name of Festes has been leaving blasphemous and disgusting comments on this blog. In one sense I rejoice in this because it indicates that this blog is doing much good in bringing people closer to God. Were this not the case such things would not be happening.

Festes' Blogger profile indicates that he is a 27 year old male living in Alberta, Canada. He proudly proclaims that he desecrates the Most Blessed Sacrament and other sacred objects. There is only one way to deal with such people. I ask everyone who reads this blog, whether regularly or occasionally to take a moment each day and pray the Hail Mary and the Saint Michael Prayer for Festes. Consciously direct your thoughts to him as you do so asking God to surround him with love and mercy. I also ask those of you who are able to make a Holy Hour of Reparation for the sins and blasphemies of this young man and for his conversion. Remember, the only way for evil to prevail is for the good to do nothing.

For your convenience:

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee, blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the Fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now, and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil. Rebuke him, O God, we humbly pray and beseech thee. And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, cast unto hell, satan and all the evil spirits, who prowl about the world and seek the ruin of souls. Amen.
My Jesus, for all the blasphemies and outrages Thou hast received, we console Thee and implore Thy mercy upon us and those who offend against Thee.
For the sake of Thy sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world!

What a beautiful idea, Father Bailey! I will be praying very much for Festes--what wounds he must be carrying that he would act in this manner. There is a saying that those that act most unlovable are the ones most in need of love---let us shower this dear soul with immense prayers of love for his conversion and seeing the loving hand of Jesus!

While I have not seen the comments made by Festes, for you to post a request for prayers for him it must be serious. How sad for him and for the experiences in life that brought him such pain.

From a technical standpoint, surely there must be away to block his posts.

Good luck Father - you are doing tremendous work.

Father, I just found your blog through Hallowed Ground. I will make a Holy Hour of reparation at Divine Mercy Chapel for this fellow Canadian, and I will ask my sister (Seeking Jesus) to pray for him as well. She lives in Alberta too, I will send her this link.

Father, I made a Holy Hour at an adoration chapel today in reparation for Festes' sins of blasphemy. I prayed to the Blessed Mother for him, as well. I hope others do the same.
