I was reading up on the miracles that some attribute to Audrey Santo
And I came across something that is just a wee bit disturbing. I found posted on a few websites a “Prayer to Little Audrey”
A prayer to little Audrey:
Oh wonderful little Audrey on whom God has deigned
to prove His love for the innocent and pure of heart by
indelibly stamping His seal of salvation on you for our
sanctification and salvation. I-We beg you to intercede
for us poor sinners for the grace and courage to bear
whole-heartedly whatever cross God has chosen for us
before the foundation of the world. Your silence is more
eloquent than a thousand words. Your sufferings and
resignation to His holy will is a soothing balm for the
wounds of Jesus and His cross, so despised and rejected
in these days of darkness. Amen.
How exactly does one conclude that we are permitted to pray to living persons in the same we pray to canonized saints? This kind of thing makes me realize how much we need to reform some of the Catechism programs in this country.
