My Prayer Intentions
Remember, O Most Gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of Virgins, my Mother. To thee do I come; before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, by in thy clemency hear and answer them. Amen.
When I read or type these intentions, I will be praying in my heart for those mentioned here.
For my husband, who works really hard, who has stress at work, and whom I love very much. Saint Joseph, pray for him.
For my children, that they may grow up healthy and strong in their faith. Saint Joseph, Saint John Bosco, and Saint Anthony, pray for them.
For my mom, whose doctor had some concerns after her routine mammogram. Our Lady of Perpetual Help, pray for her. Saint Anthony, pray for her.
For Miss Barbara who is being treated for leukemia. Saint Anthony, pray for her.
For Father Dan, for healing and strength for him. Saint John Vianney, and Saint Francis, pray for him.
For Christina, who is beginning her hunt for a teaching job as she prepares to graduate from college. Saints Luke and Catherine of Bologna, patrons of artists, and Saint Gregory the Great, patron of teachers, pray for her.
For my great-aunt Anna, recovering from knee surgery. Saint Luke, pray for her. Saint Roch, patron of knee problems, pray for her. Saint Anthony, pray for her.
For Sue, SFO, who is recovering from elbow surgery. Saint Luke, patron of surgeons, pray for her and her medical team.
In thanksgiving for Natalie's kidney transplant, with prayers for the family of the donor, and for her continued good health. Saint Luke, pray for her. Saint Anthony, pray for her.
For my uncle, who is pastor of a church he is trying to revitalize, but which may be closed down in the future--and for all in churches that may become victims of diocesan "consolidations." Saint John Vianney, pray for him.
For all the members of my SFO fraternity and the intentions they hold in their hearts. Saints Francis, Clare and Anthony, pray for them.
For J, whom I know only through her blog, and her very special intention. May God give her strength, courage, perseverance and faith in her time of difficulty. Saint Anne, pray for her. Saint Edward the Confessor, pray for her.
