Request for Prayers

Please continue to pray for Bella Santorum. She is on the mend and her dad, presidential hopeful Rick Santorum, has called her recovery "miraculous".

Would you also in your charity remember an associate of mine, a very fine surgeon and a devout Catholic and family man who sustained a devastating head injury last week? I am praying for a full recovery and for him to regain his ability to operate again.

Could I also be so selfish as to ask for your prayers for my own personal intention? I am a weak human being who is struggling with a cross that I've been asked to carry and the temptation to put it down has been great. There are countless people in this world who would love to carry a cross as simple as mine and yet at times, it seems the heaviest in the world. I know that nothing is further from the truth and I ask your help for the grace to accept what God wills for me.

Thank you and God Bless you.


  1. Joining you in prayer for Bella Santorum, your friend the surgeon and for you!

  2. For all of your requests, I'll be praying..+

  3. Thank you Julie, Caroline and Kathy!

  4. Lots of prayers being sent your way for your list of intentions. And thank you for dropping by and sharing kind thoughts and words. As my sweet friend, Shannon, mother to 9...soon to be 11 (twins!) has told me..."Offer it Up, Valerie. That's all you can do. Just offer it up!" Amen!

  5. I'll be praying for you and all your intentions. May St. Therese pray for you too!
