Abortion in my family

I just got the devastating news that my granddaughter, Lisa, had an abortion last week. Her mom and dad called to tell us and said that all three of them are totally disconsolate, depressed, and in remorse. (The parents did not know that she planned to do this.) We are trying to reach out to Lisa but she is unwilling to talk with us right now. Please pray for her, her deceased child, her parents, and us.

Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst 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.

Praying for Lisa, her lost baby & the baby’s father, her parents & both sets of grandparents.

Hail Mary, full of grace,

**Prayer to Heal Wounds **

Oh Jesus, you who experienced and shared this devastated world with us, we trust you to be with us in the dark times. At moments, life can be beautiful and fulfilling; at others, it can be like hell. Often, its dullness only leaves us weary. But your Holy Spirit whispers in our hearts that your are here with us. You are not put off by our faults, our ingratitude, our weakness, even our sinfulness. You look upon us like lost sheep, like the prodigal son. You look upon us with pity and not with blame. You do not cause us to be lost, but rather to be saved. We cause our own loss if we refuse to turn to you. Hold onto my hand in the darkness. Come to me in the lonely night. Guide me through the rough places. Help others who come to me to find your loving presence. Assure us all by your Holy Spirit that you are always there for us, O merciful Savior. Amen.

Praying for your family

Our Father, Who art in Heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name.

As we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.

Remember,
O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that any one who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help or sought thy intercession,
was left unaided.
Inspired with 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 thy Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but in thy clemency hear and answer me.
Amen
