ST. JOSEPH’S PRAYER CHAIN
August 2020
”Faith isn’t the ability to believe long and far into the misty future. It’s simply taking God at his word and taking the next step.
Healing means a lot more than a given disease disappearing, though that's something we'd all love...But I think we can be healing, on so many levels and in all of our relationships, all through a disease process and into our last breath, and we can pray to support "all possible healing for all involved."

Thank you for your daily prayers for all those in need.  We know the power of prayer!

Prayers for the grieving family and friends of Elaine Hass and for the repose of her soul.”
