Our son, Tristan, has been unable to eat much for the past four months, due to a very rare and antibiotic-resistant bacterium that has been slowly weakening him. I have prayed a Novena to Saint Jude and am continually appealing to the Blessed Virgin Mary to once again intercede on his behalf as I know she did many years ago when he was in great peril and he miraculously avoided lasting damage. We pray he may recover quickly and return to DePaul University to begin his Master’s program, having graduated in June with a Bachelor’s, cum laude, at age 19.
Pater noster, qui es in caelis:
sanctificetur Nomen Tuum;
adveniat Regnum Tuum;
fiat voluntas Tua,
sicut in caelo, et in terra.
Panem nostrum cotidianum da nobis hodie.
et dimitte nobis debita nostra,
sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris ;
et ne nos inducas in tentationem;
sed libera nos in Malo.
Ave Maria, gratia plena,
Benedicta tu in mulieribus,
et Benedictus fructus ventris tui, Jesus.
Sancta Maria, Mater Dei,
Ora pro nobis peccatoribus,
Nunc et in hora mortis nostrae.
Gloria Patri, et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto,
Sicut erat in pricipio, et nunc, et semper,
et in saecula saeculorum. Amen
