Friends of mine from Franciscan University of Steubenville are asking everyone to Storm Heaven with prayers, for their daughter, Lily, who was born via an emergency c-section last weekend. Lily has been in bad shape all week, but through many prayers already offered on her behalf, she is improving, but still has a way to go to full recovery. We really need prayers for her brain to be healed because it went through some rather tremendous difficulty during and after her birth.
Please visit the blog, PRAY FOR LILY, to receive updates from her father, Danny Garland, who has set up the site to keep us all informed on her progress.
As we enter the season of Advent, a season rooted in Hope and awaiting the Incarnation of Jesus Christ, please pray to Our Lord that Lily will heal from her traumatic entrance into this world.
December is also the month we celebrate the Immaculate Conception, please pray for Lily through Mary’s intercession, as our Immaculate Queen Mother and Advocate.
Let us also ask the intercessory prayers of St. Faustina, St. Lilian of Cordoba, Our Lady of Loreto, St. Kateri Tekakwitha, St. Gianna Beretta Molla, St. Gerard Majella, and the soon-to-be Saint, Blessed John Paul II.
All the Angels and Saints…Pray For Lily!
