“In Heaven I shall forget no one.”
Prayer to Blessed Marie-Celine
Blessed Marie-Celine, you placed yourself entirely in the Divine Heart of Jesus. Hard times had been your lot: sickness, family worries, job losses, poverty, sudden deaths.
In the will of God you had found peace. His mercy was greater than any misery and gradually His unfathomable plan revealed hidden grace. In heaven you had promised not to forget anyone. We come to you with our needs, especially for… Beg Jesus and Mary to hear our pleas and guide our steps.
Violet of humility, pray for us!
Lily of purity, pray for us!
Rose of fervent love, pray for us!
