At a Time of Family Crisis

Loss of a job, an accident, difficulties with children are just a few of the challenges which bring tremendous stress to a family. We pray to make these occasions a source of strength, rather than division.

Mary, Queen of the Home,
Our family is straining.
People who ought to be bound in love are pushing one against the other.
I think about your family and the problems you faced.
I ask for the wisdom to help bring us back together when I can and the strength to hold my tongue when I cannot.
I ask that we all remember that we are family and, as you did, live the meaning of those words.
