I’d like to ask you and your readers to pray for me. I have chronic problems with my bladder and bowels that have really flared up in the past few days and are making life pretty miserable for me. I already have a disability and I don’t get out much, so I have little to do besides sit around and think about how yucky I feel. I will try to offer up my sufferings and unite them with those of Christ for any particular intentions your readers may have. Thank you for your prayers.
Father, hear our prayer for your son’s complete healing in body, soul, and spirit, and grant him the grace to offer his sufferings to you patiently in union with your Son Jesus Christ, who suffered to hallow his suffering. Mother Mary, and St. Luke, pray for him. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen!

I would like to say my thanks for all the prayers said for my sister who overdosed on Tylenol last week. She’s medically fit but she is still in the hospital’s psych ward. She’s actually fine mentally and she realizes what a mistake she made but the other psych patients are starting to disturb her and she really wants to get out. I would like to request prayers for the healing of my sister emotionally and spiritually and that she’ll be discharged from the ward tomorrow.
Father, hear our prayer for her complete healing and delivery through Christ our Lord. Bring her home and surround her with your love through her family and friends and the prayers of the Blessed Virgin. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen!
