“The child is not dead, but only sleeps”-Mark 5:39
–From today’s Gospel
Oh dear Immaculate Conception, Lady of Lourdes, you brought forth a spring of living water with miraculous healing power in the midst of a garbage dump when you appeared at Lourdes. We pray you, come into the midst of the dump we have made of our culture and let Your Son’s healing power gush forth among us. We ask you to heal young Joey Cronin mind and body, spirit and soul, who lies in a coma in Corpus Christi, Texas. Let that healing, rising from Corpus Christi – literally the Body of Christ – be a sign of your Son’s mastery over life and become the beginning of a renewal of the culture of life throughout the world.
