For Widows/Widowers & those who have lost loved ones


#1

Please pray for us. While we hope/believe our loved ones are in in the Lord’s embrace and are happy for them, it sometimes gets difficult for those left behind. Please pray for our strength to handle things, particularly on those days that we miss them the most, on anniversaries, thru the holidays, birthdays & some days, just because.

Thank you.


#2

Loving God, please comfort each grieving heart in the waves of pain that frequently engulf it.

Sustain it when dark mourning closes out all light of comfort and hope, and when prayer seems no longer possible.

Obtain the gentle understanding and warm companionship of others to nurture the stricken heart and lead it towards hope and new life. Sustain it with faith and bring it to true generosity of spirit even in its sorrow.

Loving God, have pity on that terrible grief, that chasm of loss, the emptiness that stretches before the bereaved as they embrace their dead in their desolate hearts.

Let them find hope in Your Son’s resurrection even when their hearts are still frozen with grief.

Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, you lost your mother at the age of three, your husband in the prime of your life, and your daughter in the prime of hers. You, more than most, know the sorrow of losing family. But you also, more than most, know the strength to endure that comes from the Lord. Please intercede with Him that He may grant katrntogo and katrntogo’s family the strength they need and the hope of being reunited with their loved ones in the life to come. Amen.

Prayer in Time of Suffering
Behold me, my beloved Jesus,
weighed down under the burden of my trials and sufferings,
I cast myself at Your feet,
that You may renew my strength and my courage,
while I rest here in Your Presence.
Permit me to lay down my cross in Your Sacred Heart,
for only Your infinite goodness can sustain me;
only Your love can help me bear my cross;
only Your powerful hand can lighten its weight.
O Divine King, Jesus,
whose heart is so compassionate to the afflicted,
I wish to live in You;
suffer and die in You.
During my life be to me my model and my support;
At the hour of my death,
be my hope and my refuge.

Amen.
