    Dear Saint,

    I humbly place my God Child Babisa under your care as she celebrates her birthday today. Grant her good health and happiness that she would lead a pious and prayerful life. Draw her closer to God that she may not be attracted to the vanities of this world. Fill her with sanctifying grace that she becomes a lovable child in the presence of God. Amen.

    Dear Saint,

    We thank the Lord for gifting us with Pope Francis for this Easter. We earnestly implore all the saints and Holy Mother to continually pray for the Pope that he imitates and manifests St.Francis of Assisi. We as Church rejoice and be glad for this Holy and devoted shepherd. We hope in the abundance Mercy of the Lord that He would guide and lead him through the Holy Spirit to fulfill the Will of God and Purify the Church of its impurity and lead the faithful to everlasting life in Christ. Amen

    Dear St. Matilda, what can you do for me? I have begged and beseeched for God's mercy and compassion on poor suffering children. Give them a permanent medical cure, that will free them from the torment of seizures, speech delays, poor learning ability and a host of overall developmental delays. Do not let the parents of these children become desperate or despondent. Only heaven can help. Please do something for them on your special day, for in Heaven and on earth you will be honoured today. Amen.

    St Matilda, pray for all children born with developmental delays. Help them improve and progress through your divine intervention. Amen.
