Dear friend Sherry Curp writes on behalf of dear friend Dave Curp, her husband:
Please pray for my husband David’s mother Mary and 95-year-old grandmother Onedra, who both have pneumonia.
Father, hear our praye for their complete healing through Christ our Lord. Grant grace, skill, knowledge and compassion to their caregivers and grace, peace, and strength to all who love them, especially the Curps. Mother Mary and St. Luke, pray for them.

My husband and I have been arguing constantly since about this time yesterday and can’t seem to stop. Just when I think everything has finally died down he tosses some personal insult at me and it all starts up again. In a nutshell he keeps telling me that I am crazy, that I am a bad wife and mother, and that all his problems are my fault. I want to be patient and charitable but I don’t want to let him get away with verbally abusing me either, so I really don’t know what to do — be sweet and kind in spite of it, or tell him to grow up and snap out of it. I wanted so badly to enjoy a few peaceful days at home with my family (I am off work this week) and now it seems that it has all been ruined. I have no family or friends to turn to so I am hoping some extra prayers will help. Thank you.
Father, hear our prayer that your love and peace will prevail in this family. Help your servant take the initiative as peacemaker and reap the blessing that comes from obedience to your spirit. Lord Jesus, you bought peace with your blood. Help us to imitate you. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Mother Mary and St. Joseph, pray for us.
