Prayer Update!

Thank you all so much for your prayers on Friday.

The Memorial Mass was lovely and the whole school community really felt full of love. Do you know what I mean?

The Madrigals did an awesome job singing Jackie's favorite songs. There were some tears but only one or two here and there and nothing that interfered with the music. It was just beautiful. I'm sure Jackie was pleased and maybe even singing with them.

I had the pleasure of bringing all the Madrigals a snack and drink (and Altoids and pocket Kleenex packs:-) between the end of school and the start of Mass. It actually blessed me to be able to love them before their tough assignment.

May Jackie rest in peace and may her mother know the Lord's comfort and consolation in this terrible time of such sorrow. Mary Queen of Peace, you who know the pain of losing a Child, please pray for Marie!

I'm glad all went well at this very difficult time. A prayer will go out for this sweet mother who lost her only child.

Service is such a blessing. I'm glad you were able to help.

Yes, may Marie be very comforted and blanketed with love by many of the young people. I know that this can mean much. A very young priest passed away a few years ago, here.
The funeral Mass..well, you couldn't move there were so many people and priests, etc. It is my understanding that this was their only child and the brother priests really surrounded the mom and dad with so much love because they so loved the young priest. I feel very sure that this is how they pulled through so well..in a way they have so many priest adopted sons. God be with her.
