Prayer of the Week (August 25, 2014):
PRAYER FOR SICK BABIES AND CHILDREN
Dear St. Gerard who, like our Savior, loved children so tenderly and by your prayers freed many from disease and even death, look today at us who are pleading for our little ones who are sick, especially those afflicted with cancer at such a tender age. We lift up to you all our babies and children who are sick and suffering. We know that you too do not like to see these little ones suffer and so we are sure that you will hear our prayers for all the sick children in the world. Intercede for them and bring them God’s healing touch. Comfort them and their parents and restore them to good health. Help them along the way that leads to true happiness. Amen.
Welcome, Friend of Saint Gerard!
In Christ our Redeemer,
Fr. Allan Weinert, C.Ss.R.
