Dear Friends,

Last night, my Godson (who has been giving his parents no end of grief) came home late as usual (five in the morning) and began breaking down the front door.

His parents had finally had enough and called the police - Terry has now formally been kicked out of the family home until he changes his ways.

His mother, Lisa, is terribly upset and there are those who blame her etc.

Prayers for Terry that he may come to his senses and realize his parents will do anything for him and prayers for Lisa especially to carry this Cross of hers - may it result in a happy ending soon!

Alex

I know how lonely she feels. When my son ran away, the mothers of his "friends" would not help me at all. It is always easier to point the finger away or bury your head in the sand. She has my prayers. In fact, I will light a candle for her. She needs the prayers maybe more than her son.

Prayers for Terry that he comes to his senses soon

Prayers for his GodFather that he can help Lisa to deal with all this recurring trouble

Prayers for Terry's mother Lisa - that she can cope with all this and realise that she is NOT responsible for her son's actions now he is an adult.

You have posted for our prayers before for Terry and his Mother - it is not an easy thing for a Mother to realise that she must not say that this is down to her failings

With prayers for Terry, and all the family! May God lead all to conversion and peace, grace and happiness for many blessed years!

May the Mother of God protect him, and help him to life.

Christ is Risen!

Prayers for the difficult time this family is experiencing...may every blessing of the Lord be on them, and every evil rebuked in His most Holy Resurrection!+

Alex, please submit their names (and an explanation of the situation), especially Terry's, to a holy monastery for special prayers, because such difficulties often go beyond what psychobabble and the world might explain it as. The prayers of holy monastics are truly miraculous!

Please give Lisa a big hug, and tell her not to despair, but to pray hard and earnestly for the blessed Theotokos and our Lord will not spurn the tears, the repentance and the pain of a mother for her child...( and the more solidarity in prayer of holy persons like you and others who know her and Terry, the better.)

In Christ,
Alice

Through the intercession of Sts. Terence, may Terry come to his senses and change his ways. Lord have mercy!

Through the intercession of St. Monica may Lisa be comforted.

I pray things are calmer now...tough love is sometimes the best love. I pray that Terry, his parents, GodFather and extended family are doing better.
Our Father, Who art in heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen....Sweet Jesus you are the lifter of our heads, our Provider, and our best friend, come quickly Lord Jesus, providing for all the needs at hand.

Thank you for your kind charity, Friends!

Your thoughts and prayers mean a great deal to Lisa!

Alex
