A letter to YOU, from the Poor Clare Colettine’s TMD

Dear readers, below is a copied email that we received today from the Poor Clare Colettine’s, Wales, UK.  They have been part of our group of religious intercessors since we have been online…   Please feel free to write them and get on their daily mailing list.  They have beautiful reflections each day that will build your courage as a Catholic Christian.  God bless!

 

The Casket of Saint Colette

J+M+A

 

Dear Little Hearts,

In response to the tears and pain of many mothers and those desiring to be mothers, we are inspired by the Holy Spirit to begin this new simple initiative.  This casket will be placed upon the altar every Saturday at St. Colette’s celebration and the praying of the (St. Colette) chaplet.  This casket is for the names of unborn life that was lost through miscarriage, and for children who died in their early years.  The names will not be read out in public, but will be placed in the casket for the community to pray over… the casket will be placed next to the relic veil of Saint Colette.   If you have any names that you would like to send us, please do so, we are here for you.

Lovingly all your sisters

 

Prayer after loss of a Child

My Darling child, you have gone to Heaven to be eternally happy, and are now in the company of the Holy Innocents there.  It was a thing hard for me to understand when you were taken from my arms, for parting with you has caused me grief that few can know.  Yet in all my grief I am happy very happy for you, because I know the joy that is yours.  Your joy is now my joy too, because I feel I had a part in bringing it to you.  Now that you are in Heaven, I realize that you are mine in a truer sense than you could ever be on earth.  I cannot lose you through sin.  While parting with you was hard, I would not wish you back, because I know that you are happier than I could ever make you here with me.  Help me, as you now can with your intercession, that I may be completely faithful to all my duties here on earth and merit to receive you again in eternal joys where there will be no more sorrow or parting from those we love.  Amen 

 

Prayers of a Mother

You are still my baby and will surely regard the prayers of your Mother who bore you.  So darling, with confidence I speak to you.  Intercede for me to obtain the favor that I here ask as a Mother through her child who stands before the throne of God.  But, if what I ask is not according to the wisdom and loving designs of Almighty God for me and others, then ask Him to grant what is best according to His good pleasure and to give me the wisdom and faith to conform my will to HIS.  AMEN
