Saint Rita's Novena Intention - October
Praying for Adoptive Families Before and After the Adoption
This month of October Let us pray with Saint Rita starting tomorrow for a novena for all those whose lives are touched by adoption.
For the special intention of Julie and her family during their journey to adoption of their foster baby.
- Let us pray for endurance and for strength for foster parents in our community as they invite children into their families.
- Let us pray that our community would rise up and stand by these parents while encouraging and supporting their needs.
- Let us pray for peace and understanding in every relationship — with the foster children, with their biological children, with the biological families of the foster children, with social workers, and with their community.
Take a moment to treasure up all these things and ponder them in your heart (cf Luke 2,19)
Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer everyone. Col 4:6
