It is conceivable that my grandfather won’t live for long anymore. Both his mind and body are deteriorating rapidly. I have to worry for the souls of each of my family members but I think my grandfather’s, from what I am able to judge, is in the most critical state. Sadly, my own conversion wasn’t long ago and so I have not been able to pray for him that much yet. Ever since my mother told me today how critical things are and warned me before seeing him, I resolved to focus my prayers on him.
So now I want to seek your advice. What are good ways to pray for a person’s salvation who has no regard for God?
My idea is to offer up my Holy Communion, to pray the Rosary, and to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet for him.
Do you know of any novenas that would serve this purpose? Which saints could I ask for their intercession?
Thank you for your help. I would also appreciate any little prayer you could send his way.
