Prayer Request

A reader writes:

A friend of mine has fallen on very hard times.

Some background:

My friend converted to Catholicism 4 years ago. It’s probably the only real break she’s had in life. As of now, she’s unemployed and living with her parents, both of whom are on fixed income and not in the best of health. If anything happens to them, she has no place to go, save for the streets. She genuinely wants to discern religious life, but none of the convents within reach will take her because of her college debt. She has few friends aside from me, and is feeling very lonely and afraid.

Please offer prayers. The woman is like family to me.

Also, any other help your readers could provide would be appreciated. She’s had security guard training, is a more than halfway decent artist, and she’s written a lovely novella series about about a clumsy Cardinal set in 19th Century Italy . She’s willing to do any sort of work, really. If any of your readers in her area (Lake Wales, Florida) would be willing to hire someone like that, let me know, and I’ll provide contact info.

Father, hear our prayer that she find a good job with a living wage swiftly, through Christ our Lord. Mother Mary and St. Joseph, pray for her!

  • I will most certainly pray for her.

  • Caroline

    Seems to me her parents need her now as much as she needs them. Maybe a “nun of one” taking care of the parents and practicing the obedience to them before taking a vow of obedience and practicing poverty in the present situation before taking a vow of poverty is the calling for the present.

    According to the Employ Florida Job Search, the City of Lake Wales is hiring police officers. She may qualify for that position.

    I don’t know if she is interested in work-at-home stuff, but I have been doing online search engine evaluation work for 5 years with several different companies. I have been working with Lionbridge for the past year and it’s definitely the best of the companies I have worked for. It’s not full-time, but you can work 10-20 hours per week on a flexible schedule, and the pay is decent (above minimum wage). It’s great as a fill-in while job searching or to supplement another part-time position.

  • I offer my prayers through the intercession of St. Nicholas.

    I am leary of Lionbridge. They want my bank account number. Here is one comment about them:

    Google brings up more complaints of a similar nature.

  • I am thankful for all your prayers, I did get a security job and am in training right now. Please pray I do great at it!
