For my youngest son's girlfriend


My ds2’s girlfriends’ grandfather is going through a divorce from his second wife. His first wife died and this was a late marriage. There are 3 young children, 1 girl and 2 boys, who are at the center of a custody battle. What makes this especially difficult for her is that her grandfather is famous and this is being fought out in the tabloids. She finds it very hurtful at work to be regaled with the latest happenings when she doesn’t know about them yet herself and most likely are simply inventions of the tabloid press. Her little half-aunt and uncles are being hurt by this too, cause, as most young children in a custody battle, they don’t understand what is going on and why mommy and daddy don’t love each other anymore. She is very worried about them. Please pray for them all.

In addition, her mother is having a lot of pain with her knee and is looking at a knee reconstruction so she is worried about her mom as well as trying to cope with her grandfather’s very public messy divorce.

Our Father, who art in heaven
Hallowed be Thy Name
Thy kingdom come, Thy Will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us
And lead us not into temptation but
Deliver us from evil


Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death.


Your kin have my prayers and I shall be asking St. Dymphna to pray for your intentions also.

Glory be to the father, the son, and the holy spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
World without end,



Your intentions will be in my prayers.***

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible, look kindly upon us, and increase Your mercy in us, so that in difficult moments we might not despair, nor become despondent, but with great confidence, submit ourselves to Your Holy Will, which is Love and Mercy itself. Amen


Jesus I ask You to bring Your love into this family and situation, to surround and protect the children, and to bring respect, gentleness and healing, into the situation, into the family members.




Hail Mary full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus. Holy Mary mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen
