Current Prayer Intentions
Going through rough times, wife and I are 70, financial concerns, eldest daughter died 3 years ago 41, in Heaven with Jesus we are sure…we are going through rough emotional and physical problems…..please seminarians pray for us…so much more…you are so fortunate Jesus called you to be priests, in the person of Christ. You as priests will be able to call down Jesus from Heaven, in the Most Blessed Sacrament. No greater honor than this. Remember scripture, when Jesus said, those of you who leave brother, sister, mother, father for me will earn a hundred fold in Heaven our true home, so please pray for my mental health, my wife because I worry I may end up homeless if she goes to Heaven. I am lucky if I make purgatory….so God Bless You all and please remember us…Thank you and may the God of all consolation, mercy, compassion and love bless you as you become priest sons.
