Prayer Request

My friend Peter Holmes passes along this prayer request for their new baby:

URGENT PRAYER REQUEST. Say a prayer and then #Like and #Share. Please pray for little Albert William Holmes who is in the intensive care unit due to difficulties with his heart and lungs. Albert was born at 1.30pm yesterday (18 February, 2014) and baptised later that day. Prayers for his parents and 7 siblings are also appreciated.If you can join Albert's family in praying a Novena to St Jude (Patron Saint of the impossible) over the next 9 days, the words can be found here:

Father, grant complete healing to Albert in body, soul, and spirit and help him thrive.  Give grace, knowledge, wisdom, compassion, skill, understanding, and the proper technology to his caregivers so that they can assist in the healing process.  Give him and all who love him grace, peace, strength, consolation, faith, hope, and love.  Mother Mary and St. Luke, pray for them.  We ask all this through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

    Welcome to the Catholic family, precious little one. I place you under the patronage of Saint Bernadette of Lourdes, on whose feast day you were born. Through her intercession, and through that of the Lady who spoke to her, we pray that you and your family may be supported, and that you may be healed. Your every breath praises God!
