Prayer for One’s Friends

June 20, 2013 Posted by Shannon

In addition to the rosary prayer, which one of you has already won, I wanted to offer a prayer for all of you.  It is one that I found in a devotional to the Holy Spirit.


For One’s Friends

Holy Spirit, Love of the Father and the Son,

Hear my prayer for all those

Whom you have given me to love.

By the love you have for them

I pray you,

Protect them from all harm,

Deliver them from evil,

Comfort them in sorrow,

Reassure them in anxiety,

Give them your own gladness,

And draw them to yourself.

An Explanation for our Children

June 16, 2013 Posted by Shannon

In light of this morning’s announcement by our bishop regarding Fr. Bill leaving our Prince of Peace parish, we had a long talk with our children about it.  I thought it may help some of you explain this situation to your own children.  And if you happen to have any suggestions to help me, please pass them along!

Praying for you!

June 15, 2013 Posted by Shannon

So I promised a give-away and I’m going to start with something simple.  We can all use more prayers and I would be honored to pray a rosary for your intentions.

I am going to randomly choose someone from those who subscribe to my website or who “like” me on Facebook.  I’ll contact you if you are chosen!

I’ll have my children pick someone out of a hat next Wednesday, so if you aren’t signed up, you have until then.

Thank you all sincerely for all of the support you give me.  You lift me up in this new endeavor!
