Happy Feast Day of St. Joseph...
Would like to forward these great petitions and suggested list of intentions from the Rosary led by Pope Francis this afternoon, which can be used as we continue to pray the Rosaty in the coming days:
1st Decade: For the protection of the first responders, doctors, and nurses who care for those made critically ill by coronavirus. For wisdom and guidance on those scientists,researchers and seeking vaccines and rapid testing platforms. Our Lady, Help of Christians, intercede for us.
2nd Decade: For a full and speedy recovery for those suffering form the coronavirus. For protection of their family members and all those who are at risk of getting or transmitting the virus. Our Lady, Help of Christians, pray for us.
3rd Decade: For God's abundant mercy on the souls of those who have died from coronavirus. For strength and consolation for their grieving families. Our Lady, Help of Christians, intercede for us.
4th Decade: For protection on those who are most vulnerable to coronavirus: the elderly, those with compromised immune systems, those who have been traveling abroad, those who are in quarantine. Our Lady, Help of Christians, intercede for us.
5th Decade: For an expedient halt to the spread of the virus. For churches and schools to be reopened, and for the people to be able to return to their normal daily activities with a deepened faith and love for God. Our Lady, Help of Christians, intercede for us.
Then, let us unite ourselves with Catholics around the world and pray Pope Francis' prayer to our Lady to end the pandemic:
"O Mary, you always shine on our path as a sign of salvation and of hope. We entrust ourselves to you, Health of all the sick, who at the cross took part in Jesus' Pain, keeping your faith firm, You, Salvation of God's People, know what we need, and we are sure you will provide so that as in Cana, of Galilee, we may return to joy and to feasting after this time of trial. Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform to the will of the Father and to do as we are told by Jesus, who has taken upon himself our sufferings and carried our sorrows to lead us to the cross, to the joy of the resurrection. Amen.
Under your protection, we seek refuge, Holy Mother of God. Do not disdain the entreaties of we who are in trial, but deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.
Our Lady. Help of Christians, pray for us. "
Today is the feast day of St. Joseph, Patron Saint of the Universal Church, I invite you all to pause and pray THE HOLY ROSARY together at 6:30 PM this evening, from our own homes, whether individually or (even better) with our family members.


Although we are physically separated, we are united in spirit, heart and mind,
Let us continue to be a praying community. God bless you all.
