Catherine having some fun

Catherine is having some funny here in her "jumping jenny". She isn't in any sort of pain and we are thankful for that. We'll be heading to Philadelphia soon so we would appreciate prayers, especially to St. Lucy.

Her feast day is Sunday. If you would be so kind, we would ask you to join us in a Nine Hour Novena to St. Lucy on Sunday. As we drive, we'll be praying the prayer below asking St. Lucy to petition God for both healing and grace. We will pray this prayer once an hour for 9 hours. Thank you for all of your prayers, kind words and gestures. They mean so much to us.

SAINT LUCY, Whose beautiful name Signifies light, By the light of Faith Which God bestowed upon you, Increase and preserve His light in my soul, So that I may avoid evil, Be zealous in the performance Of good works, And abhor nothing So much as the blindness And the darkness Of evil and sin. Obtain for me, By your intercession With God, Perfect vision For my bodily eyes And the grace to use them For God’s greater honor And glory And the salvation of souls. St. Lucy, Virgin and martyr, Hear my prayers And obtain my petitions. Amen.

Catherine and your family are in my daily, frequent prayers. We serve an AWESOME GOD who is good in all things and He will see you through this. Please let me know if I can do anything.
