Love!!!

Can you please pray for my son. He has become very overwhelmed and depressed with his job and in life in general… I’m very worried about him. And It breaks my heart to see my son so sad. I try to talk with him and he promises me nothing is wrong… He is my son I know better. Please help!!! Thank you…:bighanky:

A prayer against depression

O Christ Jesus
When all is darkness
And we feel our weakness and helplessness,
Give us the sense of Your Presence,
Your Love and Your Strength.
Help us to have perfect trust
In Your protecting love
And strengthening power,
So that nothing may frighten or worry us,
For, living close to You,
We shall see Your Hand,
Your Purpose, Your Will through all things.

By St. Ignatius of Loyola

Memorare

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine 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.

amen

Praying that you will find the right words to open true communication with your son and that Our Blessed Lord, who loves you both, will ease your worries at this time.

“Lighten my eyes,O Lord
that they be not blind to the wonderful things in your law;
wonderful goodness
wonderful love.”
