Thank you for your kind notice and encouragement, Carrie; perhaps after I complete and submit my annulment application. Then I might be able to re-engage TOB with the greater sense of Hope that it deserves.

Hey Mick,

I love TOB! I actually got my Masters from the John Paul II Institute (different from the TOB Institute everyone has been mentioning.) It was founded by JPII the day he was shot to study marriage, family, and TOB. It's the Catholic Church's "official" School to study TOB. Check it out!

That doesn't make the TOB institute "unofficial". They are under the direction of the Bishops, and the translator taught one of my classes (along with Kreeft and Janet Smith)

Don't get defensive. Lol did I call the TOB Institute a fly by night operation?

The John Paul II Institute in a Pontifical Institute governed by the Holy See and founded by JPII. And I know Dr. Smith personally and Dr. Waldstein as he has been to many conferences at JPII. This isn't a competition. (But if it was we'd win. :) jk)

I wasn't defensive. Your original statement saying its "the official one" had implications that I was clarifying.

Sums up the disordered attraction perfectly.

This is a great topic. I have been teaching and have had limited time to pray. I have found real power in this prayer and it seems to have helped the teaching environment for the teenagers who I teach. It can be very challenging teaching them as they are influenced in their thinking by the media and all of it's filth. This pray is very powerful. I know that I wopuld have been using it my whole life if I would have learned it as a child. It is so powerful and is in alignment with the Agnus Dei and other prayers from Mass. It really targets sin and prays for healing from sin.
