I had the most unbelievable day today, thanks to the Infant Jesus of Prague!!!
Our family has been in a bit of financial, professional and decision-making turmoil… DH has been laid off for weeks, we were slowly draining all of our financial resources to meet our needs and we were at a crossroads where we needed to decide where to send our 4-y.o. to preschool next year.
We really wanted to send her to a Catholic school and we just didn’t know how we were going to swing it when DH is working, much less when he’s laid off! Also, some of the employees have been laid off permanently, so we were really starting to worry about his own job security.
Well, last night, I went online to find a patron Saint of vocations… we wanted intercession to help DH figure out what we needed to do about his job situation. So, I found the Infant Jesus of Prague (who I had heard of before, but really didn’t know much about.)
Turns out, our beloved baby Jesus is the patron of vocations, finances and schools (among other things) and it fit our needs perfectly!!
I printed out the novena to the Infant Jesus and another devotion to Him and began praying right away last night.
Well, today, our prayers were answered!! I never expected to receive such a blessing so quickly!!!
All in one day, we received our tax returns (earlier than expected), received some other funds that we knew we were getting but were experiencing some stumbling blocks in actually receiving them, AND DH got a promotion at work!!! :eek: I kid you not!
All in one day, we went from not knowing how we were going to pay the phone, utility and other bills and not knowing if DH was going to have a job in 2 months to receiving quite a chunk of change and a promotion for DH!!! Which now means we can send our DD to Catholic preschool this year! Praise Jesus!!
I know this is all because of our Infant Jesus and I just can’t help share my excitement. God is so good!!!
I will continue praying my novena, but I think since we received such a blessing already, I will add all of your financial and vocational intentions into my prayers. I hope Jesus won’t mind.
