(from morning prayer, for our Irish friends)

Mine is the sunlight!
Mine is the morning
Born of the one light
Eden saw play!
Praise with elation
Praise every morning
God's re-creation
Of the new day!

Please make a special effort to remember all of the intentions of the St. Blogs community that I cannot gather together here, or that have not been expressed in writing, but rest in the hearts of the writers.

Special Urgent Need

For the people who died in the terrorist attack in Spain, for their families and friends, for all of the wounded and their families and friends, for the people of Madrid who are haunted by this horrendous act, for all of the people of Spain, and for those who would perpetrate such evil that God transform their hearts and minds into those of people befitting the title "Children of God."

Christine and Gordon have a contract on their home here in Florida and a bid in on a home in Louisiana, please pray that both of these remain solid and that the preparation for the move goes smoothly.

M'Lynn reports that the court case is dismissed and her little one is reacting well to her medication. Keep praying, mothers like M'Lynn need all the reinforcements we can give them to bolster patience, courage, and a maternal heart.

It appears that Gregory Nemiroff is out of the hospital and doing well. Pleae pray for his continued recovery.

Prayer Requests

A very important request from a St. Blogs parishioner--"I found out recently that my friend's sister is pregnant for the fourth time. Her other three children have autism, and I know it would make her very, very happy to have a normal child." Please pray for this poor woman that she might have the joy of a healthy pregnancy and a happy, healthy delivery and new infant. Our Lady of La Leche, pray for us. Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us. St. Gerard Majella, Pray for Us.

Please pray for Peyton, a classmate of Samuel. She had a seizure last night and went to the emergency room (met mom and dad at the Doctor's the morning)

A request from Davey's Mom:"Please pray for S. and her newborn baby C., both had problems after the birth and C. is brain damaged."

For Father Joe who has left the active ministry of Priesthood after a number of difficult experiences, for discernment, strength, and a renewal of heart, mind, and spirit

From Therese a request for Mark Cotter,SF0, 50, just diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer. He has 2 children still in school.

For all those in the process of discerning vocations to the religious life, for guidance, prudence and good counsel

For our children, that they grow up in security, comfort, and the certain knowledge that they are loved and that they be released from any bonds of darkness, fear, anger, or sadness that bind and threaten them

For Dylan's return to health and return to us.

For Father Benedict Groeschel, for complete recovery

For Amanda and the success of her book-designing business

T.S. O'Rama requests prayers for:
-a brother-in-law experiencing marital difficulties
-for Akim

For all those living under the curse of generational sins, that they may have protection and the inheritance of the past may be made void in their lives.

For all who are suffering from marital problems, most particularly those in our own families or communities, that the Lord may intervene and remind them that a marriage is of three persons.

For mothers and families that struggle with autism and autistic related disabilities: particularly for M'Lynn, Melissa, Christine, and Betty.

For families that desire more children

For the conversion or return of spouses and loved ones to the Catholic Church, most particularly for Amanda's husband

For Neil, Kris S., Derrick, and for all who are involved with darkness in any way that the Lord will help them see light

For Audrey, who is battling anorexia, and to her family which is suffering through very difficult times.

For the men and women of the American Armed forces in Iraq and Afghanistan and for their families, may the Good Lord provide sustenance, support, compassion, and love that these separated families might continue to grow in strength and love.

Special Prayer Projects:

(1) Chris Keith, the young lady whose biopsy went poorly got the results of that biopsy--carcinoma of the liver. The cancer is metastatic from colon cancer. Surgery has taken place to treat the colon cancer.

I paraphrase her mother:

"We [members of the family] are standing on the Rock and are rock solid. We are all okay and we are looking for a few prayer warriors to help us in this battle." Because this mother means so much to me for the great good she has done for my friends, I plan to stand with her and her family in this battle, and I invite you all to join me. Expect to hear about this on and off over the next few months.

(2) For Katherine and Franklin, Janet and Louis, Peter Kucera, and for all who are seeking employment and suffering through difficult times as they wait.

(3)Healthy Pregnancies and good and safe deliveries: From Davey's Mom: I am with child once again and could use prayers for a healthy pregnancy. For Suki, for a healthy pregancy and a safe delivery. For Ashli and her child that doctors may find a way to help her carry her young one to term. For JCecil3 and Wife. For Pansy Moss. Our Lady of La Leche, pray for us. Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us. St. Gerard Majella, Pray for Us.

I have read an update that Baby C. is off the ventilator and breathing on her own. She has cerebral palsy but they do not know the extent of her brain damage and is "physically... strong."

Blessed Gianna, pray for all pregnant women!
