t is Monday again, first one this February.  If you have not joined our group in the the United States and worldwide in the 100 Days of Prayer campaign for people who are sick or injured and those who care for them, please get on board. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Catholic Health Association of the United States. Please visit  the 100Days of Prayer for more information.

Please join us in prayer for another week to offer our appreciation and support to all caregivers and the sick.

Here is the prayer for the week of Feb. 2, 2015


Health Care Givers
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and God of all encouragement, who encourages us in our every affliction, so that we may be able to encourage those who are in any affliction with the encouragement with which we ourselves are encourage by God. For as Christ's sufferings overflow to us, so through Christ does our encouragement also overflow.
2 CORINTHIANS 1:3-5
 GRACIOUS GOD, HEAR OUR PRAYER FOR ALL WHO HAVE GIVEN THEMSELVES TO THE CARE OF THOSE AFFLICTED BY ILLNESS, INFIRMITY AND OLD AGE.

Sensitize their hearts with the compassion and benevolent spirit of the Good Samaritan that they might see and respond generously to the needs of those in their care. Strengthen them with your encouraging presence and love that they might be constant in their service even in times of fatigue and distress. Lift their spirits, bolster their resolve, grant them resilience, keep them well and guide them to wisely keep themselves well. We ask this through the intercession of Our Lady of Lourdes and in the name of your Son, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, now and forever. AMEN.


I would like to include my daughter in this prayer, that she may find the right path to righteousness. Please strengthen her spirit to do good and stop running away.  She left Sunday morning.
