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.
Join us in praying the following petitions. Lord hear our prayer.
We pray for...
...my dad, Tim Booms, who has been battling GBM brain cancer since Jan. 2021, and for our family, especially my mom who has devoted her life to caring for him and everything around the house, that God guide us through this challenging time and extend Tim's life if it be His will. Overall, that He give us the grace to endure whatever lies ahead.
