for the bombers:
I’m writing to propose we hold a Divine Mercy novena starting tomorrow for the Boston Marathon bombers, and to ask if you could promote this on your blog. It would run Saturday 4/20 – Sunday 4/28.
Don’t see why not. If anybody is at risk for the everlasting fires of hell, it’s those guys. I think it would be good to also pray for the dead, wounded, and traumatized too.
Father, hear our prayer through your Son Jesus Christ. Mother Mary and St. Michael, pray for us!
Also a reader writes:
Please pray for my godson who is supposed to make his First Communion next month. My husband and I recently learned that he does not believe in the True Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. His catechists are teaching him right but his mother and grandmother are calling the host a “cookie” because they think calling it a “dead body” will scare him. Please pray for these women also, that their faith will increase and they too will believe in the True Presence of our Lord in the Eucharist.
I’m looking for resources to give to the mother to help her and her son. If you have any suggestions please let me know!
Thank you so much!
Father, help this little one get a sense of what the Real Presence really means and get past any bad catechesis or childish misperception that may be confusing him. Mother Mary and St. Thomas, pray for him. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen!
