We learned this morning that the youngest addition to our extended family, our nephew, has been called back to Our Heavenly Father. My family and I ask for prayers for the repose of his sweet soul, that he might be in the loving embrace of our heavenly Mother, and look upon the shining face of God our Father.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
