Requested by: Maria C on 11/11/18

Thank you for all your prayers.I'm in the 6th month of my first pregnancy and I'm continuously going through deep stress and anxiety. My father Darlan does not talk to me since my marraige. It's been 1 and 1/2 year now. He drinks heavily and has recently stopped going for mass. My father shares his problems with outside people. My father does not tell anything to my mother about what he is doing and where he goes.  I dont know with whom my dad fights with or where he falls and hurts himself. He never tells anything. He has revenge against my husband. He fires bad words for my husband. He talks all false stories to outside people. There are a lot of misunderstandings among us. My parents don't see my good thoughts and intentions. My mother Alice is suffering at home wit my father's behaviour. My mother also misunderstands me. They think I and my husband are liars. My parents are blaming me for their problems.It's a long story to type everything.Please pray for him to come closer to God and give up his addictions. Please pray that he may repent and his life be transformed. Pray for peace and inner healing for my parents. Please pray for unity between my mother and father and husband and me. I'm losing faith and hope. Sometimes I cry alone. I have spoken to priest for guidance but everything will work out if only my parents understand and change which they are not ready to do. How long will I continue in stress like this?

3Please pray for the conversion of Steven Boisvert and his cousin Josée Boisvert. Thank you.

Requested by: antonella on 11/2/18

Dear friends, I ask for prayers to know better the will of God regarding the graces that I am imploring. To ask insistently is certainly good but do not ask against the will of God and since the graces I implore are really great I wondered if the Lord, in His Immense Mercy, really wants to grant us what we want, that is, physical healing. A grace I still desire and it is that of being able to enjoy the peace of the heart and to be able to entrust completely my life and that of my dear ones to the SS. Virgin Mary, because you know how to obtain, for everyone, the best graces and how a mother loves us more than we love ourselves. Thank you and God bless you.
