I was just wondering if you could ask your readers to pray for my grandfather who is drawing near to death, especially for the grace of final perseverance and consolation for his wife and our family! Thank you so much!
Father, hear our prayer that your servant will be granted the grace of a happy death and eternal peace and light in Christ Jesus our Lord. Mother Mary, pray for him and all who love him that they find grace, strength and consolation through Christ our Lord.

The husband of one of the teachers at my son’s school – he has been slowly losing his eyesight for the last year and a half, with no doctors (even Mayo Clinic) being able to get him a diagnosis. Yesterday they found a massive growth in his brain; he is in surgery as I write this. He and his wife have six children ranging in age from college to first grade. They need prayers, please!
Father, grant this man complete healing of body, soul, mind, and spirit through Christ our Lord. Give his caregivers grace, wisdom, compassion, and skill and all him love him grace, peace, consolation, and strength. Mother Mary, St. Luke and St. Lucy, pray for him. We ask all this through Christ our Lord.
