I will pray for you & your family that God will comfort you and the tremendous sense of loss you are enduring. God Bless
Prayers promised for your aunt and your whole family during this sad time. :signofcross:
God rest her soul and bring you peace…Your aunt gave you a tremendous gift
May you be willing to accept the peace of Christ and ask him to show you his love in a very special way in this time.
May your aunt’s memory be eternal+
Eternal rest grant unto Mari, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace. Amen.
Hail Mary, full of grace, pray for her now, and until she is in Heaven with you. Amen.
Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, comfort her family that has been left behind. Amen.
Sincerest sympathies to you and your family Nicole.
May God receive her into His Kingdom with a crown of Victory
You entered this forum seeking help and I could not help but feel tremendous heartbreak at reading your personal story and knowing what was going through your mind (in all honesty the exact same questions which just about many Catholics sooner or later face in life and struggle with in similar situations, most being afraid to admit so publicly).
But Jesus Christ Himself hanging on the cross felt forsaken by God. He the Incarnation. How much more we poor sinners in times of stress. God sends crosses to those who are strong. St. Paul himself asked God three times with all his soul to cure him of illness, but God didn’t for His own reasons, leading Paul to understand ultimately that when we are weak, that is when Christ’s power is most strong in us despite of, or more probably, because of our suffering. Jesus himself in the Beatitudes spoke that “Blessed are those who are weak in spirit”!
I will say prayers both for you and your aunt.
Please accept my sincerest sympathies. My father passed away not too long ago. Feel free to give a shout for questions on grief if you feel. In Christ!
May her soul, and all the souls of the faithfully departed rest in peace, Amen.
Eternal rest grant unto your aunt, May she rest in peace. Amen
Eternal rest grant unto Mari Loli, O Lord. And let Your Perpetual Light shine upon her.
May she rest in peace.
I’m sorry for you loss of your loved aunt, and it’s wonderful that she was such an inspiration to you!I will rember you family, with your Uncle Frank and your cousins in my prayers this evening.
It’s wonderful that you have received the grace to return to the Church. It’s a great blessing also for your three little boys.
I ask God to help your family give comfort to each other in sharing your memories and consoling each other.
God bless you, Nicole :grouphug:
Eternal Rest grant unto her soul O Lord
Let perpetual life shine upon her
May she rest in peace.
Praying for you and your family in this sorrowful time
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of death
