I have burdens on my heart today for a friend who is suffering emotional pain, as well as for others whose needs have been brought to my attention, so I wrote the following post, "The wallflower and the carpenter," in hope of providing comfort.
I do not mind the burdens, because it is a blessing to be able to pray for others, but they are so many and deep that I would like to ask each of you reading to share them by praying for my intentions. If you are a priest, I would be grateful if you would remember my intentions during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Thank you and God bless you.
UPDATE, 2/3/09: Thank you so much for your prayers, which are still very needed. My friend who has been suffering has felt the graces, as have I.
