  • A Prayer During the Time of the Corona Virus

    Holy Virgin of Guadalupe,
    Queen of the Angels
    and Mother of the Americas.
    We fly to you today
    as your beloved children.
    We ask you to intercede for us with your Son, as you did at the wedding in Cana.
    Pray for us, loving Mother,
    and gain for our nation and world,
    and for all our families and loved ones, the protection of your holy angels, that we may be spared the worst of this illness.
    For those already afflicted, we ask you to obtain the grace of healing and deliverance.
    Hear the cries of those
    who are vulnerable and fearful,
    wipe away their tears and help them to trust.
    In this time of trial and testing,
    teach all of us in the Church to love one another and to be patient and kind.
    Help us to bring the peace of Jesus
    to ourland and to our hearts.
    We come to you with confidence,
    knowing that you truly are
    our compassionate mother,
    health of the sick and cause of our joy.
    Shelter us under the mantle of your protection,
    keep us in the embrace of your arms,

    help us always to know
    the love of your Son, Jesus. Amen

    A story tells that two friends were walking through the desert. During some point of the journey they had an argument, and one friend slapped the other one in the face.
    The one who got slapped was hurt, but without saying anything, wrote in the sand;
     “Today my best friend slapped me in the face.”
     They kept on walking until they found an oasis, where they decided to take a bath. The one who had been slapped got stuck in the mire and started drowning, but the friend saved him. After he recovered from the near drowning, he wrote on a stone;
    “Today my best friend saved my life.”
    The friend who had slapped and saved his best friend asked him;
     “After I hurt you, you wrote in the sand and now, you write on a stone, why?”
     The other friend replied;

     “When someone hurts us we should write it down in sand where winds of forgiveness can erase it away. But, when someone does something good for us, we must engrave it in stone where no wind can ever erase it.”
    Moral of the story: 
    Don’t value the things you have in your life. But value who you have in your life.
