It is often very difficult for us to understand your ways, but you are the Way, the Truth, and the Light. Help the light of your comforting and holy presence to be with this family as they suffer and mourn the loss of their son. Bless them as they move forward as a family and help them to cherish the time they had with this beautiful child they will meet again in heaven. Take this child into your arms and may our Blessed Mother Mary comfort this child. Help all people who interact with this family in their time of suffering have the wisdom and grace to say things that help and make the family know they are cared for and loved by many.
Father, teach us to see Christ in the lives we touch, to offer him living worship by love filled service to our brothers and sisters. Help this family to remember the love of this child who was with them for such a short time and be inspired by the warmth of this love. We ask this through Christ our Lord.
