Arms of an Angel

I just learned about a baby and a family that needs our prayers right now. I've linked to the mom's blog where you can read about what is going on. But please keep little Stellan and his family in your prayers right now.

If you're Catholic, or believe in intercessory prayer, you might want to say this prayer to St. Jude, patron of the hopeless:

Prayer to St. Jude for our Child who is Sick

St. Jude, the glorious apostle faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the patron of hopeless cases of things despaired of, pray for our child who is sick and so miserable. Make use we implore you of this particular privilege accorded to you, to bring visible and speedy help where help is almost despaired of. Come to our assistance in this great time of need, that I may receive the consolations and succor of Heaven in all my necessities, tribulations and sufferings, particularly to help our child to get better from his illness and to give him good health and to guide his path, and that we may bless God with you and all the elect forever. I promise you, O Blessed St. Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor, and I will never cease to honor you as my special and powerful patron and to do all in my power to encourage devotion to you. Amen.

How crushingly painful. Okay, I don't ever do this, but I just said a prayer.
