My family is going through what has to be the worst weekend in our lives. On Saturday my Dad was taken to the Emergency Room with a Brain Bleed. He is stable but still in critical condition.. and we still don’t know what caused the situation. On Sunday we found out that my wife’s brother who was in his early twenties and just a couple of months from graduating from College with a Master’s degree committed suicide. So any prayers that can be offered for both of them and our families will be greatly appreciated.
Father, hear our prayer for this man’s father and brother-in-law. Grant complete healing to the former (and grace, skill, knowledge and compassion to his caregivers) and mercy and peace to the latter. Grant, as well, comfort, consolation, grace, hope and peace to all who love them. Mother Mary and St. Luke pray for them. We ask all this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
