June 5, 1920 – March 14, 2009
I just found out that my Grandpa died last night… Oh, I am going to miss him soooooo much! I would love to tell you all about him, but I just can’t right now. It’s all I can do to get on here and ask if you could please say a prayer for the repose of his soul, as well as one for my sweet grandmother, their 13 children, and countless* grandchildren and great-grandchildren. (*My Grandpa could always tell you exactly how many of us there are… All together he has over 100 descendants!)
I love you Grandpa!
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord. And let perpetual light shine upon him.
May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
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.
