Ugh,,,, I guess I should ask for a prayer

My husband of 17 years left my son and I 5 years ago for another woman. I am NOT divorced.
He hasnt seen our son since he left.
He took all of our money, I lost our home, he refuses to pay child support.
Anyway… I have heard that he has lost 2 jobs in the last couple of months, he is bouncing from state to state… it appears life is paying him back.

He put my son through more than a child should ever go through and hurt me beyond measure.

But, the good that came from all of this is… I went through RCIA last year and I am proud to be Catholic (something he would have never supported me in)

He isnt allowed in our lives ever again… what I am asking for is prayers for him. May God give him a glimpse into what a man is suppose to be. May the hardship he is going through change him.

Thank you Jesus… you are changing my heart from anger to pity for him.

Praying the August Queen Prayer for you.

August Queen of the Heavens, heavenly sovereign of the Angels, Thou who from the beginning received from God the power and the mission to crush the head of Satan, we humbly beseech Thee to send Your holy Legions, so that under Thy command and through Thy power, they may pursue the demons and combat them everywhere, suppress their boldness, and drive them back into the abyss. Who is like God? O good and tender Mother, Thou will always be our love and hope! O Divine Mother, send Thy Holy Angels to defend me and to drive far away from me the cruel enemy. Holy Angels and Archangels, defend us, guard us. Amen.

First, a praise to God for seeing you safely across the Tiber. Welcome home, sister!

Prayers going up for you, your son and your husband.
