you who cured the sick
and laid a healing hand upon the lame,
the blind, and the crippled,
look with compassion upon me in my trouble.
If it is not God's Will
to cure me,
give me strength
to bear my burden
and offer it up to Him,
who suffered so much for me.
Give me grace
to offer my sufferings
in union with Jesus',
for my sins and those of others,
for the needs of this troubled world,
and for the release of the souls in purgatory.
St. Anne, compassionate mother,
pray for your weary child.

Her days and even nights are closed. ... continue reading
