Prayer for Nancy and her family

| | Comments (3)

St. Jude, the Church invokes you as the universal patron of things despaired of. Pray with us, blessed apostle, for Nancy and James Sandrock, and their beloved children. They need a lawyer to help them in their hour of great need. We pray that they find one, and that the truth of their plight be exposed. We implore you, St. Jude, to use your special place in heaven to help this family go on when their will and resources fail.

Archangel Michael, join us in this battle against the forces of darkness bent on destroying this family. Help them defend against all assaults, and to maintain their strength during the coming weeks. Defend the youngest and most innocent against any ill that might befall them.

Mother Mary, St. Joseph, go to the parents. Guide and comfort them, and help them expose the truth. Lend your protection and succor to them and their youngest especially. Keep them safe and warm in their parents stead.

We trust in the mercy of Christ, and pray in his name, Amen.

Way back when, I was originally planning to do a Novena to the Holy Spirit for the kids in our parish who will be confirmed on Pentecost. I am going to add special prayers for Nancy and her family to my novena. Please consider doing likewise.

I'll be adding Nancy etc to our parish prayer book. We've prayed for them in our household every day since you "broke the story" so does that kind of count as a novena?

Continued prayers here.

Guess I am getting confused with this turmoil in my son's family; the family of James and Nancy Sandrock. I wrote yesterday about a book "Mere Christianity" and attributed the authorship to G.K. Chesterton of whom Alicia had some great quotes from in one of her posts. The author of "Mere Christianity" is C.S. Lewis and is a great read for a spiritual uplifting. Sorry about the misquote.
As for the Holy Spirit Novena....we have been praying this novena annually for over 20 years in Our Lady of the Lake Parish in Mandeville, LA. Yes, include James and Nancy in this novena and also in all your prayers and prayer chains/lists. Thanks for your support Alicia and other supportive postings. John C. Sandrock

P.S. A little Cajun humor to lighten our load…. “A novena? Cajun Joke

Boudreaux was feeling guilty, so he went to Confession. "Father, I kinda took a little lumber from that new construction site."
Priest: What did you do with the lumber, my son?

Boudreaux: Well, Father, my porch, she's had a hole for a long time.
I'm afraid someone will break dey leg, so I fix de hole.
Priest: Well, that's not so bad.

Boudreaux: Well, Father, I had a little lumber left.
Priest: What did you do with it?

Boudreaux: Well, my poor dog, Fideaux, he ain't never had no place to get outta de weather, so I made him a doghouse.
Priest: OK, anything else?

Boudreaux: Well, Father, I had a little lumber left. So, you know, my truck, she ain't never had no place to get outta de weather either, so I made a two car garage.
Priest: Now this is getting a little out of hand.

Boudreaux: Well, Father, I had a little lumber left.
Priest: Yes?

Boudreaux: Well, my wife, she always wanted a bigger house. So I added two bedrooms and a new bathroom.
Priest: OK, that's definitely too much. For your penance you are going to have to make a Novena. You do know how to make a Novena, don't you?

Boudreaux: No, Father, but if you got the plans, I got the lumber.
