    I hope it is okay to post this here:

    Would any readers who may see this please pray for my cousin and his wife? She is pregnant with twins who are due in 6 weeks and just learned today that the baby boy has a number of serious health issues and may die in the womb. My cousin’s father (who predicted she would have twins) died only a few months ago, so this is another heavy blow for them. I’m making it my business to get as many people praying as possible, since I am otherwise helpless.

    Thank you!

    I’m trying to get a rosary/prayer rally for this Saturday Feb 25 at noon (American Eastern Standard Time). Anyone interested in merging this idea with mamajen’s request and Fr. Z’s request for his friend, the priest? Can I get ten people to commit to praying the rosary at noon? As many decades as you want. Pray whatever time of Saturday you want if you can’t make noon. No more complaining! Let’s see if we can start using the weapons we’re given against evil/unfortunate circumstances.
    I need nine more volunteers. I’ll take whatever I can get. If I have to go it alone, no problem. Fr Z and mamajen are covered Saturday at noon.

  3. Dear Father Z,
    A Memorare said for your Priest in difficulty and more prayers will follow .We see all too much evidence of that “roaring lion”going about in recent times. Thank you for your mighty Blog and other works!

    Mamajen I am also praying for the parents and the babes in the womb!

  4. mamajen says:

    Thank you for your prayers Uncledan and Vexilla Regis!

    Father Z, I have also prayed for your intention.

  5. Flambeaux says:

    Thank you, Father, for Vespers.

    Praying for all the above intentions even now.

    I will join your “rosary/prayer rally for this Saturday Feb 25 at noon (American Eastern Standard Time)”. It is vital that the best Spiritual Weapon, the Rosary, is used to fight the evil that has invaded our land.

  7. MyBrokenFiat says:

    Uncledan, count me in!

    Divine Mercy chaplet being shot to both intentions as well. May the Blessed Mother bear them both forth to the Throne of the Almighty!

  8. AnAmericanMother says:

    Sign us up – husband and I will pray a Rosary at noon EST on Sat for all these intentions.

  9. Liz says:

    Yes, of course. Amazingly, right before she kissed me good night my 14-year old daughter handed me a holy card with a prayer for priests. (She wants the holy card back, but she knows that priests are very much in need of our prayers these days.) I made a copy of the card and said that prayer and two others for your priest friend.. Fr. Z (I love the combination of the Memorare and the St. Michael prayer!)

    mamajen, I am praying for the twins and their family.

    Uncledan, sign me up for the rosary at noon and please pray that I don’t forget to say it! (I did write it down.)

    God bless and keep you all.

    Joyful mysteries still on Sat. during Lent? The Sorrowful go to Sunday, so do the Glorious go to Saturday? Have to check on EWTN at 7:30 Rosary. Mary is patron of Priests, our country, and those babies.

    On it.

  12. NoTambourines says:

    You got it.

  13. Liz says:

    Our rosary will include his intentions, and we will pray at mass and stations for him. God bless him.

  14. mamajen says:

    Thank you to everyone who is praying for the babies. I greatly appreciate it!

    Offering all difficulties encountered today up for these intentions

  16. mjd says:

    to Mamajen regarding the twins: A friend’s daughter was carrying twin boys; both she and the babies had health issues. She was in the hospital, in bed, for about 3 months. She prayed to Blessed Francis Seelos. On Feb. 2, the boys turned 3 & are healthy. You will find prayers here: God bless.

  17. Uncledan says:

    Thanks to everyone joining the rosary/prayer rally – will be adding mamajen’s and Fr. Z’s Intentions today.
