At my mother and father’s home yesterday, I didn’t want to go but got obligated, I prayed the rosary sitting on the couch in the sitting room, pretending to be sleeping. Then I brought up the luminous mysteries, asking my Dad if they had been instituted after the days of his youth as a Catholic. He was reminded of praying the Rosary as a youth. I pray that he will hold on to this connection. I went over the five luminous mysteries with him and the light jumped into his eyes. I pray my mother does not interfere and secretly yearns for the Lord. They both need Him.
I pray for my son’s redemption, as he stays with them and has been reinforced in misguided beliefs.
Oh Holy Spirit, beloved of my soul, I adore You. Please make a stronghold out of my mother and father’s household, fill them with your breath, blow them with your winds, and most especially guide my son right. He needs it so very much. Amen.
Gory be to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
