Be Not Afraid

It started with 12.

We can go back down to 12, and with the Holy Spirit, rebuild.
Be not afraid.

First Sunday of Lent - Pope St. Felix II

I pray for the Pope. That he may lead Catholics to deeper faith and union and that he live long enough to right the waywardness that has hurt the Church so much in the past 40 years. I also pray for his intentions for the month of March:

That the role of women may be more appreciated and used to good advantage in every country in the world." His missionary intention is: "That, in the light of the Letter addressed to them by Pope Benedict XVI, the bishops, priests, consecrated persons and lay faithful of the Catholic Church in the Popular Republic of China may commit themselves to being the sign and instrument of unity, communion and peace."

Julian asks our Lord to give Ama Gaby good health so that we may enjoy her company for many, many years.

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, have mercy on us.

Saturday After Lent - Pope Saint Hilary

Lord, I pray and ask your help for the need of all the people that have been praying for D's recovery. Especially Connie, who is in a particularly difficult situation. Bless her and her daughter and give then strength through this trial.

Julian prays for:
All the children that are in hospitals today and those that can not go home because they are very sick, especially those at Sant Joan de Deu Hospital in Barcelona.

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, have mercy on us.

Friday After Lent - St. Leander of Seville and St. Julian

For Avia (his Catalan grandmother), I hope the doctor tell her her finger is better.

For priests: Lord make them holy. May they ALWAYS be faithful to You and Holy Mother Church.

I read this prayer for priests on the comments of Fr. Z's blog.

Prayer for Priests
O Jesus,
I pray for Your faithful and fervent priests;
for Your unfaithful and tepid priests;
for Your priests labouring at home or abroad in distant mission fields;
for Your tempted priests;
for Your lonely and desolate priest;
for Your young priests;
for Your dying priests;
for the souls of Your priests in purgatory.
But above all I recommend to You the priests dearest to me;
the priest who baptized me;
the priests who absolved me from my sins;
the priests at whose Masses I assisted and who gave me Your Body and Blood in Holy Communion;
the priests who taught and instructed me;
all the priests to whom I am indebted in any other way.
O Jesus, keep them all close to Your heart,
and bless them abundantly in time and in eternity.

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, have mercy on us.

Thursday After Lent- St. Victor

I want to pray for Apa Carlos (maternal grandfather) so that his metal knee can help him walk and he can play with me when I go to California.

Lord, I pray for the millions of unborn babies that are slaughtered every year and for their mothers.

Lord Jesus Christ, son of the living God, have mercy on us.

Prayers for Lent - Ash Wednesday

Julian and I are making a Lenten prayer book. Each day we both pray for something specific.
Here is my first entry:

Lord God, I pray for all your faithful. May this Season of Lent bring them closer to you Son so that we can share in his passion, death and resurrection.

As I fast, Lord, I pray for the 3.8 million people in the world that go hungry everyday.

Julian had this to ask our Lord:

I pray for Daddy. I want him to believe in God and to come to Mass with us.

May this Season of Lent be joyful for all of you and I hope that this road of freedom that we are on will lead you to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
