Approval of Proposition 37 in California

Sacramento, California - Proposition 37 protects the right of individuals to know what is in their food and whether or not it is genetically engineered. Basic to this proposition is our "Right to Know" the truth.

In these lingering days of political campaigning, it seems our news and advertisements are riddled with half truths and political tactics that can be misleading or downright lies. As voters we have the "Right to Know" the truth about our food, our leaders, our government and our destiny.

Please pray that our basic "right to know" the truth be safeguarded and that guideslines such as Proposition 37 be put in place in all states. Fifty other nations have passed legislation that ensures all genetically engineered food be labeled.

Changes to our environment and food directly effect our health and our choices. Tampering or witholding the truth effect our souls, our quality of life and our moral choices.

Lord, make clear your perfect will for us as we make decisions that will change our destiny. Raise up strong leaders who live by your truth and endorse Respect for life, Freedom of Religion and our basic Freedom of choice. Help us to build your kingdom here on earth by living intentional lives dedicated to serving you and proclaiming your truth in all areas of our society.

Lord, we also pray for all those who are in need of conversion, especailly those who do not know you or deny your existence. In your mercy open hearts and speak to souls who are searching, lost, or abandoned. Restore peace and unity by the common bound of your truth and your love. Draw all souls closer and closer to you as we place all our trust in you.

All for your glory Lord! Lord, please use every moment of our lives and all that we experience for the good of souls. Amen

Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens Eternal Rest

Benghazi, Libya - We lift up in prayer J. Christopher Stevens and his family, former U.S. Ambassador to Libya. His journal revealed Ambassador Steven's growing concern for his safety and the safety of his staff. Stevens in the months before his death talked about being worried about the never-ending security threats that he was facing in Benghazi and specifically about the rise in Islamic extremism and growing al Qaeda presence. Stevens was killed by terrorists on 9-11-12.

We pray for eternal rest for Ambassador Stevens and all Americans who have lost their lives serving their country. We pray for swift justice for terrorists, who threaten the peace and security of all nations and peoples.

Almighty God, Creator of all things, we place our request for world peace in your hands. Continue to be our refuge and our strength as we undertake the challenges of serving our country according to your perfect will.

Bless with Your divine protection, our servicemen and women and all those who serve our country in the foreign services. Let their faith and trust in You never weaken. Bring them home safely to their loved ones. Let your heavenly wisdom direct our world leaders to seek peace. Through their actions, may harmony and justice be secured.

We pray for all nations. Fill their hearts with the desire to ensure justice and equality for all. Watch over all those who live in war torn countries. Guide their daily path to the way of peace. Heavenly Father, let peace reign throughout the world. We ask this through the intercession of Our Lady of Peace, as we pray: "Hail Mary full of grace...."Amen

Adam Smith, Age 16 and John Ross Snell

Atlanta, GA - A Walton County teen remained in an Atlanta hospital Tuesday after collapsing during football practice Monday afternoon.

Brant Rawls, a spokesman for Childrens Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston, told the AJC that Jon Ross Snell was in critical condition early Tuesday.

Snell is on the 7th grade football team at George Walton Academy, according to a roster on the schools website.

He was practicing with his team shortly before 4 p.m. when he told his coach he didnt feel well, the Monroe Fire Department told Channel 2 Action News.

Snell then lost consciousness and was flown by medical helicopter to Childrens Healthcare at Egleston.

The incident came one day after a Buford High School varsity basketball player died after collapsing during a preseason practice session.

Adam Smith, 16, was running during a Thursday afternoon workout when he told a teacher he wasnt feeling well. Moments later, the junior collapsed.

Staff members performed CPR, including using an automated external defibrillator, until EMTs arrived. Smith was rushed to Northside Hospital-Forsyth, where he died Sunday night. School officials said Smith had no known pre-existing condition that might have caused him to collapse.

Lord, in your Mercy grant eternal life to Adam and a full recovery for John. Grant wisdom and prudence to their doctors and coaches so that sports accidents may be prevented in the future.

"Eternal Father, I offer you the body and blood, soul and divinity of your dearly beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world." from the Divine Mercy Chaplet

All Those Who Have Asked our Prayers

Scottsdale, AZ - Today we are praying for all those in need, the sick, the poor, the dying and all those who have no one to pray for them.

Over the years we have received many intentions centered on the crosses we shoulder daily in our lives. Let us lift up all those who have asked our prayers and carry heavy burdens. May they unite their suffering with the Cross of Christ and feel the power of His redemptive love and healing.

We adore you, oh Christ and we bless you because by your Holy Cross, you have redeemed the world.

Feast of the Triumph of the Cross 2012 - A Brief Overview:

"Early in the fourth century St. Helena, mother of the Roman Emperor Constantine, went to Jerusalem in search of the holy places of Christ's life. She razed the Temple of Aphrodite, which tradition held was built over the Savior's tomb, and her son built the Basilica of the Holy Sepulcher over the tomb. During the excavation, workers found three crosses. Legend has it that the one on which Jesus died was identified when its touch healed a dying woman.

The cross immediately became an object of veneration. At a Good Friday celebration in Jerusalem toward the end of the fourth century, according to an eyewitness, the wood was taken out of its silver container and placed on a table together with the inscription Pilate ordered placed above Jesus' head: Then "all the people pass through one by one; all of them bow down, touching the cross and the inscription, first with their foreheads, then with their eyes; and, after kissing the cross, they move on."

Please share our website with a friend, family member or someone at work. Multiply the gift of prayer. You never know the many graces received by a life spent in faithful prayer.

911 Victims and their Families

New York, New York - The terrorist September 11 attacks by Al-Qaeda resulted in almost 3,000 immediate (attack time) deaths, including the 19 hijackers and 2,977 victims.

372 foreign nationals (excluding the 19 perpetrators) perished in the attacks, representing just over 12% of the total. The immediate deaths include 246 victims on the four planes (from which there were no survivors), 2,606 in New York City in the World Trade Center and on the ground, and 125 at the Pentagon.

About 292 people were killed at street level by burning debris and falling bodies of those who had jumped from the World Trade Center's windows. All the deaths in the attacks were civilians except for 55 military personnel killed at the Pentagon. Some immediate victims were not added to the list until years later.

More than 90 countries lost citizens in the attacks on the World Trade Center. The foreign countries with the highest losses are the United Kingdom (including the British overseas territory of Bermuda) with 67, the Dominican Republic with 47, and India with 41.

In 2007, the New York City medical examiner's office began to add people to the official death toll who died of illnesses caused by exposure to dust from the site. The first such victim was a woman who had died in February 2002 from a lung condition. In 2009, a man who died in 2008 was added,and in 2011 a man who died in 2010 joined the list.

Lord, grant eternal rest to all victims of terrorism past and future. Transform the hearts of those who would harm others into agents of mercy. Bring peace where there is war and hope to the despairing. Turn all to good through your grace and mercy. Helps us to see life as eternal and love as everylasting, where there is no separation or loss only union with thee. Amen
