It's like there was a vote in Heaven as to who would be the best person to serve us at this time as Pope, and the whole heavenly orders unanimously voted for Pope Shenouda III......such a gift from Heaven, A gift from GOD!!!

Thanks very much for your reply's!
I think I am getting more clarity on this subject now.
So, the 2 become one flesh, but still the soul's are separate??
So Holy Matrimony unites our body's, but not always our minds?
God bless you!!!

When u feel the urge to sin pray the Lord's prayer, holy Virgin St. Mary prayer etc. Pray earnestly and fervently and before u even realize; u will have forgotten about the sin, that seemed to be consuming u before!
Yes, I think we should stop beating ourselves up. Just the mere fact that we even take time out to pray shows that we are striving to live a righteous life. We have to just keep trying and praising God until one day we will see the good results!
