Prayer Requests

Another good reason not to have taken this site down is the opportunity to appeal directly for prayers.  Ah, where to begin?

My sister, who married last July, accompanied her new husband to a much-dreaded neurology visit on Friday and they were informed that he does indeed have Huntington's Disease, a genetic disorder which attacks brain cells and for which there is no cure.  The disease claimed the life of his mother and his grandfather and it is likely one or more of his four siblings may also have the disease.

A young mother from our Latin Mass community was just diagnosed with breast cancer.  There is some lymph node involvement so both surgery and chemotherapy are indicated.

One of my nurses, who is young and in good shape, has suddenly developed heart failure.  Her heart is functioning way below the level it needs to and she is unable to work or do much until the doctors can figure something out for her.

Finally, and this is something happy to pray and be thankful for, a certain young lady who means the world to her mother confided that she is discerning a vocation to the religious life. Specifically, she believes she's being called to Carmel.    It's early, and lots can happen, but your prayers for this and all the preceding intentions would be most appreciated.

God bless you all.


  1. Lately I am hearing of so many people with health issues. I will keep them in my prayers and also for your certain young lady.

  2. I will pray for all of these people. May the Sacred Heart of Our Savior be their refuge, and may Our Lady Star of the Sea guide them through the uncharted waters that lie ahead of them.

  3. Will say a prayer now. So much to pray for. ...

    A homeschool mom near me may have stage 3 lymphoma and I am beseeching St. Anthony for intercession as I fear I have lost something very dear and precious to me, irreplaceable. While I am on my knees I will be happy to add your prayer intentions.

    God bless.

  4. Prayers offered for all. God bless.

  5. A certain young lady with a calling? How wonderful!

    I will pray for all.

  6. Prayers and a suggestion. A few years back I joined the "Universal Living Rosary". Each person is assigned a decade once a group of 15 people per group is put together. One prays one's decade til death. It is a wonderful way to take part in the graces of many rosaries together. I pray this apostolate will spread.

    1. Thank you, I definitely look into this.
