This week has been very trying for my mother and step-father. My step-father has been physically abusing my mother by hitting her, and attacking her. We have gone to the authorities and have taken legal action, and steps for my mother’s physical safety. However my mother still has a fear that my step-father will come back regardless of the protection order against him and hurt her. So far my brother, my uncle, and I have been staying with her and at the house to make sure she is safe. We however are aware that we cannot protect her at all times, and that we have to place our trust in God that He will take care of us. I would ask if at all possible that you pray to God for a peaceful resolve to this situation, and to also pray for my step-father that he one day sees the Will of God and follows it. Also that he may convert to the Catholic faith and come back to God who I know loves him. My step-dads name is Ken, my mother’s name is Victoria, my name is Christopher, my brother’s name is Michael, and my uncle’s name is Francis. Please keep us all in your prayers.
