Soul Sunday

Today's Soul Sunday is personal as our souls are hurting.  Angel's lung disease seems to be  progressing. She needs not only positive thoughts but prayers.  Prayers for comfort, healing, miracles and to be free of any suffering.  
She is on medicine though lately it seems less effective, we are trying to keep her as comfortable as possible but know in our hearts we face heart wrenching decisions ahead of us.  
During this difficult time prayer is very important as well, not only to God but Saint Francis who is known as the patron saint of animals.  I ask from the bottom of my heart please pray for our little one and all those who also may be suffering.  May they find comfort, healing and be freed from any suffering. Amen.
Novena To Saint Francis Of Assisi

O Beloved Saint Francis,
gentle and poor,
your obedience to God,
and your simple,
deep love for all God's creatures
led you to the heights of heavenly perfection
and turned many hearts to follow God's will.
Now in our day,
in our ministry to the many
who come here searching for peace
and intercede for us
we come before the Lord with our special requests...

(Mention your special intentions here...)

O Blessed Saint of God,
from your throne among the hosts of heaven,
present our petitions before our faithful Lord.
May your prayers on our behalf be heard
and may God grant us the grace
to lead good and faithrful lives.


Saint Francis of Assisi, pray for us.

Heavenly Father, please help us in our time of need. You have made us stewards of [N.]. If it is Your will, please restore him/her to health and strength. I pray, too, for other animals in need. May they be treated with the care and respect deserving of all Your creation. Blessed are You, Lord God, and holy is Your name for ever and ever. Amen.
