Please pray for me, would you?

*I feel a little funny asking for you to pray for me. But, please keep me in your prayers. I started a grief support group on here, and I guess I didn’t realize that I would feel so sad about dredging up some of the past of my parents’ deaths. I have been crying a lot lately, and don’t really know why. I thought I was past all of the pain of it, but there was something that triggered it today, and I could just use some prayers. Not even sure what to ask for, but if you could pray that I ‘get over’ this, that would be so nice of you.

Thank you. *

You certainly can count on me WG. The Grief Support Group is so important and I know will help many. But I am sorry for your pain at the same time.

Take care and will pray that Our Lady will especially watch over you …

Take Care…

Jesus thank You for bringing to the surface all WG’s uncried tears and buried pain. Thank You for the draining of this deep deep wound by opening it to the air.
Please grant healing to this beautiful person. Please walk with her as she faces the sorrow she has buried for so long, and help her to grow in new life.

Will gladly hold you in my prayers.

May you be comforted by the Holy Spirit, especially during this difficult time of grief processing.

I know what you mean WG. My infertility support group is the same for me. I didn’t realize how hard it would be to HAVE to be there for others. Other infertility support groups I could seek support or go help others when** I **felt up to it, and now I am responsible whether I feel up to it or not. It is very hard sometimes. Ours deals a lot with grief so I can imagine almost exactly what you must be going through. :hug1: I will certainly uplift you in prayers. If it ever gets to be too much, and you need someone to lead the group for a while, I understand and will be happy to help. Just let me know :thumbsup:


#7

Of course! My prayers are with you. :slight_smile:

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your Mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your Holy Will, which is Love and Mercy itself. Amen.

Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy Will be done, on earth, as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now,
and at the hour of our death.
Amen.

St. Bernardino of Siena, pray for us!

Praying with today’s Liturgy of the Hours:

Saint Bernardino of Siena (1380 - 1444)

Bernardino (“Little Bernard”) was born in Tuscany. His parents died when he was a child. While still a student at the University of Siena he took charge of the hospital there when an epidemic killed most of the staff. Later he looked after a bedridden aunt until her death; and then, at the age of 22, he became a Franciscan.

Inspired by St Vincent Ferrer, he was an energetic and popular preacher and spent years travelling on foot through Italy preaching to enormous audiences. He denounced usury, promoted peace among the warring Italian cities, and worked hard for the reform and discipline of the Franciscan order, and for church unity.

Bernardino’s achievements before he became a Franciscan show what the young can achieve if given the chance. Let us try not to confirm them in a culture of enforced irresponsibility, but to encourage each of them to give to others whatever they have been called into this world to give.

See the articles in Wikipedia and the Catholic Encyclopaedia.


Mid-morning reading (Terce) (Romans 4:24-25) ©
We believe in him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead, Jesus who was put to death for our sins and raised to life to justify us.


Noon reading (Sext) 1 John 5:5-6 ©
Who can overcome the world? Only the man who believes that Jesus is the Son of God. Jesus Christ came by water and blood: not with water only, but with water and blood.


Afternoon reading (None) (Ephesians 4:23-24) ©
Let your spirits be renewed so that you can put on the new self that has been created in God’s way, in the goodness and holiness of the truth.

St. Teresa of Avila,

You understand the lingering effects of the loss of one’s parents. Place WG in your care, and help to ease her burden of sadness. She is doing so much to help the pain of others that she need not carry it all herself. We pray through Christ our Lord, Amen.
