Worried? Full of anxiety?
Padre Pio often told those who sought his encouragement and prayers, "Pray, hope, and don't worry".
Find a quiet spot in which to sit. If you cannot find one, retreat to that quiet space within yourself where God resides. Breathe deeply and close your eyes. As you slowly inhale, silently say, " pray, hope and don't worry"
Repeat this exercise for several minutes. As you do, visualize yourself completely supported by God's gentle, loving arms. Practice this exercise each day and especially during time of stress and suffering.
Read Mark 11:24 "So I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours."
Consider how you usually pray. Do you pray with hesitation or confidence? Do you pray believing that God really can meet your needs? God never fails to answer our prayers, He just doesn't always answer them in the manner in which we would prefer.
Are you ready to accept whatever answer God gives you? Resolve to pray today with confidence and humility, knowing that God alone knows what is best for you and for all those for whom you pray.
If possible, go for a 10 minute walk or lie on the soft carpet or grassy spot. Breathe deeply and look up and smile and as if you were smiling at God. But rather than petitioning the Lord, spend this time thanking him for everything and everyone in your life, and even for those elements of your life, including people, that do not please you. If possible, repeat this exercise once a day
Here are the thoughts that our son Wade Samuel presented to us a few months ago, we thought we would offer it again:
The Three Days of Darkness is 72 hours and we have some 72 hour emergency food kits.
He said he thought a good idea to help people would be to give away a free 72 hour food kit with very Three Days of Darkness Package.
It is only good for the USA because of postage cost and plus, we will not be making any money on this to begin with.
Order a Three Days of Darkness Kit and get a FREE 72 Hour Food Kit!
The free kit will not show up in your cart, but the boys will automatically include it.
THIS OFFER IS ONLY GOOD UNTIL THE 72 HOUR FOOD KITS ARE GONE!

Lined up the priests, created the page, instructed my children (who will instruct the grandchildren, etc) that THIS is a FOREVER thing!
Shoot, I want MY SOUL prayed for, for all of eternity (and my children's and hubby)!
Something about being in my 50's has really "woke me up" about eternity...and the eternity of all of my children.

FOREVER MASS & MEMORIAL PAGE!
What if I told you, you could have a Mass offered for a loved ones soul...daily, FOREVER
We have left directives for our children... to continue this, then our grandchildren will take over!
Masses celebrated for the release of a loved one possibly in Purgatory... as recommended by Pope Saint Gregory the Great!
What if I told you that your loved ones soul would be prayed for by a devout Catholic family...DAILY.
What if I told you that we have a Nun praying for these souls?
How is this possible? See THIS page

---HELP IF YOU CAN----
Here is a post, from a recipient of what we do,.
L**** and I were one of the precipitants of This mission. She is right. My parking was 9 per day for 3 months. Then on top of that food cost me approximately 15 per day. That was cheap - I got vouchers for $5.00 per meal. So somedays I did not eat or made meals last for more then one meal. Had to. Parking was $810. Food was $1,300. Then you have normal household bills and I have 3 animals I had to pay to have people come and take care of them. At first I had my dog in the Kennel for 1/2 the time. That was about 500. It is VERY expensive to have a sick child. That was Just ONE hospital stay. We have had numerous ones. Some only a few days, some a week or two. Without their help we would of gone fully under!
From providing necessary funds to actually having families stay with us...we DO what we say we do!
Kindly, head HERE. We always send a nice gift for your help
