Prayer of the Week (Jan 26, 2015):
PRAYER FOR COUPLES PREPARING FOR MARRIAGE
We want to pray today for all couples preparing for marriage. St. Gerard please watch over and bless all women and men who will celebrate their marriage in the coming months. May their decision and commitment be serious, mature and joy-filled. Give them all the graces and blessings they will need to love each other tenderly and faithfully for the rest of their days, on both the good ones and the tougher ones. If it be your will, bless them with the gift of children and the grace to be wonderful parents, when the time is just right, as only you know. We make our prayer through you to our Lord, Jesus the Christ, who lives and reigns forever and ever. Amen.
Welcome, Friend of Saint Gerard!
In Christ our Redeemer,
Fr. Allan Weinert, C.Ss.R.
