(A friend sent this to me and asked me to post it. Please feel free to disseminate it widely and to pray it as well).
St. Jude, the Church honors you universally as the patron of things
despaired of. Today we ask for your help at a moment of great need. The
hour is late; the night deepens. We beseech you, glorious apostle; use
your special place in heaven to pray that the life of Terry Schaivo be

St. Faustina, Apostle of the Divine Mercy, in life you taught us that
Jesus is limitless love and unfathomable mercy. Pray with us, that
Christ's tender mercy be upon Terry Schaivo. Jesus, we trust in you.

Archangel Michael, we seek your aid. The forces of darkness come ever
near another victory. We have reached the last bastion and our forces
are nearly spent. We ask that you come to the defense of Terry Schaivo.
Shield her from the forces of evil that seduce the hearts of men.

Mary, ever Virgin, we pray for your help. By the words of your Son we
know you to be our mother and the mother of Terry Schaivo. Hold our dear
sister and her family close to your heart. Pray with us, Holy Mother of
God, that her life be spared and health restored.

All the angels and saints in Heaven, please, pray with us.

Almighty and eternal God, healer of those who trust in you, hear our
prayers for Terry Schaivo. If it be your will, spare her life. Restore
her to health, that she may give you thanks and praise with her own
voice, and thus be a symbol to all the world of the sacred nature of
life. We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen

A Florida judge has decided that Terri Schiavo should begin starving today today at 1:00 PM EST. I ask that you pray and consider fasting for Terri. Here's an excellent prayer for Terri from Fructus Ventris: St. Jude, the Church... Read More


Alicia, that is absolutely beautiful. I have stolen it (just 'fessing up here) for HC.

That is absolutely beautiful, Alicia!

I'll be adding this to my blog. Thanks, Alicia!

Love your site and your beautiul prayer....the story of the midwife brought me here... I will be back.

I also posted it on the Mamas site.

St. Maximilian Kolbe, Patron of Journalists, Patron of prisoners, you were imprisoned for your Christian witness in your secular society and for your Marian Devotion. You willingly took the place of another and suffered your Martyrdom from starvation.

Intercede with God our Father for our sister Terri. Intercede with God for the journalists who are reporting on the intended starvation of Terri, that their eyes may be opened to see this event as the murder of a disabled innoncent. May they also see beyond the lies of those whose authority has been abused in ordering her death. May they be granted the courage to speak their minds and the courage overcome the pressures of our Culture of Death on (and within) the media.

St. Kolbe, intercede with God to comfort Terri in her time of trial. While your martyrdom was by choice, hers is not. You and Terri are both victims of societies with distorted views of Perfection and of the value of the individual.

May God have mercy on the actions of those within the Legal system of the United States. May the legal system of this country be returned to the values of cherishing each individual. May we view with horror the parallels between the actions of the legal system of the United States of America and that of Nazi Germany. May the suffering of our Parents and Grandparents during "The Second World War" not have been in vain.

May God Bless those in the United States who hold and express Christian values and defend the lives of those who are innocent and can not defend themselves.

We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen
