Let Us Pray
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, we fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, our Mother; to thee we come; before thee we stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not our petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer us. Amen.
We pray for...
...Patricia, who has pancreatic cancer and has a few weeks to months to live. For a holy death for her. And for her sister, Lisa, who is caring for her.
...the Good Shepard and St. Raphael congregations to brighten the light of Christ in our pastorate and renew members' faith, hope, and charity.
...Kristen Danowski Brown to have a blessed, safe, and easy birth of her first child, and that the baby bring others closer to Jesus.
...the repose of the soul of Scott’s dad, who just passed away. For a successful cataract surgery for Sally and for her conversion. That a friend (who has already suffered two miscarriages) have a successful pregnancy and for the health of the baby and mother.
...a pro-life judge to be elected on April 4th for Wisconsin’s Supreme Court. That abortion remain illegal in Wisconsin and that the lives of all the unborn children be protected.
...Colin Duffy’s full recovery from his ankle surgery, necessitated by an injury from slipping on the ice. We pray for his quick return to regular life and to our group meetings as well.
...Maria DaCunha's grandsons, Jacob, who suffers from ADD, and Jaxson who suffers from Autism. They both struggle to learn and to adjust to school and life.
...the Discipleship Day on April 29 to increase the effectiveness of witnessing Christ to others.
...all people who have fallen away from the Catholic faith, that their hearts may be open to the voice of the Holy Spirit calling them to return to the Church, returning with a fervent love of Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist and with a loving-knowledge of Him in their souls.
...the Go Make Disciples initiative in our parish, that it will bear fruit, through the Holy Spirit, in evangelizing souls to the Catholic faith.
