Prayer of the Week:
PRAYER FOR MOTHERS STRUGGLING IN POVERTY/FAMILIES IN NEED
Lord, today we pray for all mothers who struggle to raise their children in poverty. They do not have a safe place where their children can receive enough food, clothing, shelter, necessary medical care and opportunity for education. Through the prayers of St. Gerard Majella, protect them and help them. Move the hearts of those who have been chosen to govern and of all women and men of good will to work for the necessary changes in our world, so that all people will be able to live a dignified human existence. Change our hearts, Lord. May we feel your compassion for those in need.
Welcome, Friend of Saint Gerard!
In Christ our Redeemer,
Fr. Allan Weinert, C.Ss.R.
