Well I am not going to be around these parts much during the Triddium. I have a lot to do in preparation for the Elect and Candidates reception into the Church.
As you prepare to celebrate the paschal mystery of our Lord, please pray for the sick and suffering among us. I especially ask that you storm heaven for baby Emme (and her family), a new born who is fighting for her life. She is holding on against all odds.
Please pray for new deacon Dave Waddle, his wife Pat, and their family. His doctors are concerned that his cancer is returning. They are asking that we say a novena to St. Philomena (You Tube video below).
Prayer for the sick:
Dear Jesus, Divine Physician and Healer of the sick, we turn to you in this time of illness. O dearest comforter of the troubled alleviate our worry and sorrow with your gentle love, and grant us the grace and strength to accept this burden. Dear God, we place our worries in your hands. We place our sick under your care and humbly ask that you restore your servant to health again. Above all, grant us the grace to acknowledge your will and know that whatever you do, you do for the love of us. Amen.
