I talked on the phone with Rick today. Lauren and Boone were able to hold Jackson today. He has improved a bit, but he still cannot breathe on his own and his EEG is worrisome. We will begin a parish novena tomorrow. Say whatever prayers you like but however you pray pray with Our Lady, who Son Jesus has given us hope, "that we may hope still more."
Novena for Jackson, Lauren and Boone DuBose
October 28-November 5
Prayer to Our Lady of Walsingham
blessed Virgin Mary, Our Lady of Walsingham, Mother of God and our most gentle Queen and Mother, look down in mercy upon us, our parish, our country, our homes, and our families, and upon all who greatly hope and trust in your prayers, especially for Jackson, Lauren and Boone. By you it was that Jesus, our Savior and hope, was given to the world; and he has given you to us that we may hope still more. Plead for us your children, whom you did receive and accept at the foot of the Cross, O sorrowful Mother. Pray for us all, dear Mother, that by faith fruitful in good works we all may be made worthy to see and praise God, together with you in our heavenly home. Amen.
Our Lady of Walsingham
Pray for us.
