All Those Suffering from Neglect

FRESNO, CA - Three small children are still in the hospital after being rescued from an apartment fire. Their mother is now being questioned by police. The fire started Sunday around noon at a home near Church and Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd.

Firefighters were told there were kids inside. Neighbors say someone broke a window and helped firefighters pull the children out.

The children's ages are only one, three and four-years-old. They are now at Valley Children's Hospital with critical injuries.

Firefighters traced the starting point of the fire to the living room, where they found a burned television. The mother was not home when the fire started.

Lord, remember all children especially those in most need of your protection and healing. May they be safe from harm and feel loved and nurtured in their homes and within their community.

Holy Family of Nazareth pray for all families. Provide, protection and deliver them from all harm and abuse. Amen

Respect for All Life

Washington, DC - Please join us in prayer as we celebrate the "National Prayer Vigil for Life" as well as those who "March for Life" this week. May our witness and prayers encourage all peoples to respect life from conception to natural death. We ask this in Jesus' name as we pray:

"Divine Child Jesus, we believe in You; We adore You; and we love You; have mercy on us all.

We've come in prayer in response to your love. We've come in response to your mercy and grace. We are here because You invited us to come before You and to pour out the cares of our hearts to You since You deeply care for each of us.

We remember Your words to the disciples: Ask and you shall receive. Seek and you shall find. Knock and the door shall be opened. Trusting in your infinite goodness and trusting that You always keep your promise, we now ask this intention which we pray in the silence of our hearts...(silently mention the your prayers in support of life....)

Thank you, Divine Child Jesus, for listening attentively to our prayers all the time. We hope that You will ask this before Our Heavenly Father. And, if what we ask for may not be good for our salvation and sanctification, we trust that you will grant us instead what we truly need, so that one day we may be with You for all eternity enjoying that ultimate happiness of Heaven.

Divine Child Jesus, bless and protect us.
Divine Child Jesus, bless and lead us.
Divine Child Jesus, bless and provide for us.

All this we ask through the intercession of your Holy Mother, Mary, and in Your powerful and Most Holy Name, Jesus. Amen"

Renewal of Baptismal Vows

Vatican City, Rome Italy - As we celebrate the Feast of the Baptism of our Lord, let us thank God for the gift of baptism and the many blessings which are received by becoming the children of God. Pope Francis baptized 13 infants on Sunday. In his homily he reminds us:

"In Baptism, the Heavenly Father also repeats these words for each one of these infants. He says: "You are my child". Baptism is adoption and admission into God's family, into communion with the Most Holy Trinity, into communion with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. For this very reason, Baptism should be administered in the Name of the Most Holy Trinity. These words are not merely a formula; they are reality. They mark the moment when your children are reborn as children of God. From being the children of human parents, they also become the children of God in the Son of the living God."

Lord, help us renew our baptismal vows each day by offering our day and all our good works to you as your children. Increase our faith, hope and charity as we strive to serve you and protect us from all evil and temptation. We also pray for all those who have not been baptized that they may be welcomed into your flock soon. We ask this in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen

Kyle Cremarosa Survivor of Bone Cancer

Los Angeles, California - As part of his long, ongoing battle against cancer, our friend Kyle Cremarosa had a leg amputation in December of 2013, with the hope that the surgery would rid his body of this disease. Unfortunately, it had already spread and in 2014 he had a new mass appear in his lung that required surgery. Another mass has recently been diagnosed in his hip bone that will require treatment.

His cancer, an extremely rare sarcoma called adamantinoma, may have originated back in 2003 when he broke his fibula during his senior football season at Harvard University. To put in perspective how uncommon it is, sarcomas represent approximately 1% of all adult cancers, while adamantinoma accounts for about 1% of all sarcomas. As is the case with many rare cancers, it does not have a prescribed treatment plan, so obtaining a long term diagnosis is difficult.

I understand that my future is uncertain, Kyle acknowledges. Because of that fact, my goal is to be as active as possible and give my family and friends as many lasting memories as I can squeeze out of this body. As you can see by my wifes awesome blog, "No Leg No Problem", letting my diagnosis slow me down is not an option. As long as my body is willing and able, Ill give anything a try, especially if it will put a smile on my daughters face. And I definitely do not let the fact that I am an amputee hold me back.

Endearingly nicknamed Cream by his close friends, Kyles courage, practicality, and positive thinking have left his friends, family, college roommates, and football teammates in awe. It is no surprise that he was recently named a Dad Hero by L.A. Parent magazine. His wife Anna and daughter Olivia continue to light his life with love and support.

Let us join the marathon of good wishes for Kyle and his family by adding our prayers for him as he battles bone cancer.

Good Saint Joseph, Patron of thousands of healings through the work of Saint Andre Bassett, bring healing and hope to all those with bone cancer, especially Kyle, who is such an inspiration to so many. Let hope in our Lord's mercy lighten each day for all cancer patients. Amen

It is made possible by a partnership among the world's religions, faith-based groups, secular organizations and people of goodwill committed to building a world fit for children.

The World Day of Prayer usually is celebrated on January 1st of each new year. It encourages prayer and measurable actions for the survival, development and protection of all children worldwide. It promotes world peace for each child at home, their families and all peoples throughout the world.

The World Day of Prayer and Action for Children offers an opportunity for people of goodwill from all religious and secular backgrounds to recommit themselves every year to working together to achieve internationally agreed goals for children such as the Millennium Development Goals.

The World Day of Prayer and Action for Children is a day of solidarity among all who share the vision of a world that everywhere allows children to grow up to their full human potential.

Oh Most blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God pray for us and all children past, present and future that they may have the health, safety and nurturing needed to develop their God given destiny as children of God. Oh, Mother most dear pray for us especially the less fortunate, those that are suffering and in most need. "Hail Mary full of grace ... Glory Be to the Father ..." etc. Amen

Make a commitment to pray each day for world peace and the welfare of all children. Thank you and God bless you and your family now and in the New year.
