My wife and I just had a beautiful little girl on Saturday. My wonderful wife labored for 43 hours with no pain meds, needless to say she could use some prayers as she is resting and healing up. My wife and my daughter are having a hard time with breast feeding, We are so thankful to God for the birth going so well despite being so long and we are trusting in His mercy and in the intercession of our patron saints (St. Brendan, St Elizabeth of Hungary and Bl. Serafina of Tuscany) and guardian angels for healing and to establish good breastfeeding habits.
Also my brother who is soon to start his last semester at WSU was diagnosed with mono. We are hoping and praying for a speedy recovery so he can make it to school this fall and so he can spend time with his new niece.
Father, hear our prayer through your Son Jesus Christ and the intercession of Mary and Sts. Brendan, Elizabeth, and Bl. Serafina, and the guardian angels).
