for Amy

Please pray for my high school friend Amy, who got hurt through what happened to me and by me because of what happened to me, never got over her smoking and alcoholism, we switched lives–I became the socialite, she became the career girl.

She never got married and I blame myself for turning her off from the Yale man she was dating, she never had children, she travels and has a high-falutin’ life but no kids, and I just know that was what she wanted, a quiet married life.

I would give anything to go back to those days at Kent and have things go differently.

Amy is Catholic. Pain like my guts are being ripped out.

:signofcross:

PATER NOSTER,
qui es in caelis,
sanctificetur nomen tuum.
Adveniat regnum tuum.
Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra.
Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie,
et dimitte nobis debita nostra
sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris.
Et ne nos inducas in tentationem,
sed libera nos a malo. Amen.

She will be in my prayers.

Praying for Amy.

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

Amen.

I will be praying for both of you. lynnehelen, you cannot feel guilty over the way someone else has chosen to live their life. You cannot regret what did or didn’t happen in her life: she made her own path. If you look into yourself and find that you had influenced her by immoral, sinful acts, then, yes, there is a problem. Yet, even then, confession, absolution, penance and reparation are the way to go. Always trust in the Lord’s Divine Mercy.

Lord God, we lift up to You Amy.please guide, guard and protect her. I pray that she finds happiness and fulfillment in the things that she does. I also pray for lynnehelen. May she be able to forgive herself, Lord God, for what she thinks she did wrong to her friend. Please give her peace and the assurance that the choices made by Amy is not lynnehelen’s fault. Amen.

Prayers said.
