In the Book of Matthew we read…Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for your selves. For my yoke is easy, and my burden light. MATTHEW 11:28-30
Loving Father you are the HEALER OF SOULS AND COMFORTER OF THE WEARY, HELP TO LIGHTEN THE BURDEN OF all of us who are caring for physically and mentally ill loved ones. Accompany us on the tumultuous journey and ease the anxiety and fear that has become part of our everyday lives, as a caregiver. Surround us with the love and strength of others, so we may experience the healing presence of the communion of saints here on earth. And when we feel like we have nothing left to give show us the limitless font of your love and grace.
This we ask through the intercession of Our Lady of Lourdes and in the name of your Son, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, now and forever…
