Another Little Saint…

by | Sep 2, 2009 | Prayer Request, Requiescat in Pace | 3 comments

Earlier today I was devastated to hear the heartbreaking news that Colleen’s little boy, Bryce Philip Mitchell, died in his sleep this afternoon.

I am still in shock and, even though I know what it is like to lose a baby, I never seem to have the right words to say…   I just wanted to ask you all to please pray for comfort and healing for Colleen and her family, and to ask their new little saint to intercede on their behalf.

Last summer, my little nephew also died in his sleep.  I know how hard it is on the family, not to mention the unexpected financial burden this places on the parents when they are already dealing with so much suffering…

Elizabeth has set up a Memorial Fund for little Bryce to help defray the costs of the funeral.  Please considering donating!  Be generous if you can, but even little donations can add up fast when we all join together…  Thank you!

“Jesus said to her:  I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in me, although he be dead, shall live:  And every one that liveth, and believeth in me, shall not die for ever.”  ~ John 11:25-26

    When Steven Curtis Chapman lost his little girl, he said something, which I found very comforting, "The vast majority of our time together is still ahead of us." May God bless and comfort this family. JMJ

    I really like Annita's comment. What sad, sad news. I will pray for that beautiful family.

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
