Prayers for my grandfather and family

  • Hi Everyone,

    A couple hours ago I received word that my grandfather's heart aneurysm is leaking, and he is in pain and will die soon. I am travelling to see him. If you could say a prayer for his conversion, my family's consolation, and my determination and ability to speak of the Church when I see him, I would be thankful.

    Graham

    God be with you and your grandpa, Graham. I'll say a rosary with your intentions.

    Most merciful and immaculate heart of Mary, pray for him at the hour of his death.

    Religion clean and undefiled before God and the Father, is this: to visit the fatherless and widows in their tribulation: and to keep one's self unspotted from this world.
    ~James 1:27

  • He died today, 30 minutes after I arrived. Maybe he was waiting for me.

    Well, it's out of my hands now.

Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Our Lord Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor but a destroyer."  St. Francis of Assisi

    A blessing you could be with him.

    Deo gratias!
