We hold in prayer this week families that face struggles of physical and mental illness and aging, who have to figure out how to provide care for one member of the family. We pray for Luca, Heather, Maris, Irene, and their families.
We hold in prayer those who grieve the loss of a loved one, and we continue to hold Julie and her family in prayer.
We raise prayers of gratitude for those members of our community whom we do not see often but rejoice in the moments that we can connect by phone. We are grateful for the times when we can talk to or see Ann and Alfred.
God of grace and mercy, hold the Campus Ministry of Villanova in your care as they continue to be a presence in your name for the students of the university and for one another as they struggle to understand how to move forward in trust and truth.
May your love surround, support, and sustain us through this week.
