Tonight at mass, a young man nbamed Enrico introduced himself to me while he waited for an opportunity to talk to Father. He moved to Indy from Detroit with his pregnant girlfriend to find work as a carpenter. She (I’ve forgotten her name) has been turned out her family due to her pregnancy. They had enough money for a hotel room tonight, but were unsure where they’d be staying until his job starts this week.
I was unable to help financially, but promised prayers.
Remeber, o most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, sought thy help, or asked thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto thee o Virgin of Virgins, my Mother. To thee I come, before thee I stand, sinfula nad sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but hear and answer me. Amen.
