May the motherly blessing of the Blessed Virgin Mary come to those who were severely affected by the typhoon.
And may the souls of those who were killed by this calamity especially the many young children rest in peace.
Here is my AMEN to the prayers offered by Renel and Catherine Marie.
The people of the Philippines suffer so many trials and tribulations. They are remembered in my rosary but esp. now in this new devastation.
Lord have mercy and comfort Your children.
And may the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace
Glad to hear of an efficient way of getting help to the people who really need it.
So sorry that this had to happen so close to Christmas. :-(
Prayers for you, Renel, for all of your family and friends and for your countrymen.
May God come to their assistance. Dear Mother Mary, comfort and help thy suffering children.
"May the Lord grant comfort to the peoples of South-East Asia, particularly Thailand and the Philippines, who are still enduring grave hardships as a result of the recent floods."-His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI Urbi et Orbi Message for Christmas 2011
Thank you my fellow Crusaders for your sympathy and prayers.
