This week, I was to continue with the topic of spiritual direction; however, I am going to put that on hold for a few days. Instead, I would ask that you join me in prayer for a homeschooling friend, Molly and her family, who lost their 2 month old son, Oliver Joseph to SIDS over the weekend. Tonight, in Steubenville, OH a rosary will be said, and tomorrow morning the funeral mass at St. Peter church. If you could please remember this family in your prayers as this blogspot will pause in silence over the next several days.

Thank you and God bless you.

Mother of Sorrow and Consolation, Our Mother, to you we turn for help and comfort. Your son was called the fairest of all the sons of men; you lost your son in death on Calvary. We are grateful for the assurance that the child we grieve over is safe with Jesus and close to you. Grant this child's family the strength and comfort they so greatly need in bearing their sorrow.

At the cross, your station keeping, Mournful Mother, you stood weeping, close to Jesus to the last. Our Lady of Sorrows and of Mercy, Pray for us!

I am so sorry to hear about this loss. My family and I will pray for your friend Molly and her family.

May Oliver Joesph rest near Jesus's heart and live in everlasting peace in Christ Jesus our Lord.
