Delivery postponed! Looks like baby Jude may have a bit more time…thank you for your continued prayers.  Will keep you posted…

This a.m.:

Prayers for this lovely mother of five (soon to be six!) precious little ones…

My dear friend Lisa is scheduled for an emergency c-section due to placental failure. Baby Jude will enter this world nine weeks early and needs our prayers! Shall we beseech St. Jude for his most powerful intercession?

O glorious Apostle St. Jude, true relative of Jesus and Mary, I salute you through the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. Through this Heart, I praise and thank God for all the graces He has bestowed upon you. Humbly prostrate before you, I implore you through this Heart to look down upon me with compassion. Despise not my poor prayer and let not my trust be in vain. To you has been assigned the privilege of aiding mankind in the most desperate cases. Oh, come to my aid that I may praise the mercies of God. All my life I will be grateful to you and will be your faithful client until I can thank you in heaven. Amen.
