thank you St. Clare for favors granted
When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow -
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out -
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when its seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit -
It's when thing seems worst that you must not quit.

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell and lead all souls to Heaven and help especially those in need of Thy mercy.
Thank you, St. Therese, you have no idea how much I appreciate you in my life. You have shown me that when things look bleak, you come aound with a rose, you never fail. I love you. In Jesus name, Deb (NJ)

A WINNER'S CREED
If you think you are beaten, you are;
If you think you dare not, you don't;
If you'd like to win, but think you can't;
It's almost a cinch you won't.
If you think you'll lose, you're lost;
For out in the world we find
Success begins with a person's will,
It's all in the state of mind.
Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster hand;
But sooner or later the person who wins
Is the one who thinks, "I can".
Dear God-my heart feels moved to write you a letter
my heart seems to float-it light as a feather
One reason is because of the joy You've bought to me
If joy could be seen,I would want the world to see
Dear God,sometimes this Earth is a hard place to live
But for your love,there is nothing i would not give
You remind me of the wind-firm,gentle and strong
When I sit real still in the wind,sometimes i hear a song
Dear God,You've touched my life and made me sound
Whenever I head in the wrong direction,You turn me around
You let me wander,You let me soar,You let me be free
And yet You've always gently and firmly watched over me
Dear God,I know you blessed me with a guradian angel
I've sometimes felt on the very edge,by a thread I dangled
If it wasn't for your love,compassion,& tender loving care
I would be lost,doing who know what,who knows where
Dear God,I want to thank you for the very special way
That you answer me each and every time I pray
Lord I can come to You for any reason,anyplace,anytime
And somehow You make everything wonderful,everything fine
Dear God,I talk to You often,I laugh at me,as I know you do
You see all,hear all,know all,You watched me as I grew
I WANT YOU TO KNOW-I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART
NO MATTER WHO I'M WITH,WHERE I AM-WE'LL NEVER BE APART
I love You-GOD

I have faith in St Jude, O Mary, Micheal.. I know you are busy,but please answer my prayers. Thanks very much for the gifts I do have. JS

Prayer to St. Raphael, Angel of Happy Meetings
O Raphael, lead us towards those we are waiting for, those who are waiting for us! Raphael, Angel of Happy Meetings, lead us by the hand towards those we are looking for! May all our movements, all their movements, be guided by your Light and transfigured by your Joy.
Angel Guide of Tobias, lay the request we now address to you at the feet of Him on whose unveiled Face you are privileged to gaze. Lonely and tired, crushed by the separations and sorrows of earth, we feel the need of calling to you and of pleading for the protection of your wings, so that we may not be as strangers in the Province of Joy, all ignorant of the concerns of our country.
Remember the weak, you who are strong--you whose home lies beyond the region of thunder, in a land that is always peaceful, always serene, and bright with the resplendent glory of God. Amen. SA

Prayer to St. Raphael
St. Raphael, loving patron of those seeking a marriage partner, help me in this supreme decision of my life. Find for me as a helpmate in life; the person whose character may reflect some of the traits of Jesus and Mary. May he/ she be upright, loyal, pure, sincere and noble, so that with united efforts and with chaste and unselfish love we both may strive to perfect ourselves in soul and body, as well as the children it may please God to entrust to our care.
St. Raphael, angel of chaste courtship, bless our friendship and our love that sin may have no part in it. May our mutual love bind us so closely that our future home may ever be most like the home of the Holy Family of Nazareth. Offer your prayers to God for the both of us and obtain the blessing of God upon our marriage, as you were the herald of blessing for the marriage of Tobiah and Sarah.
St. Raphael, friend of the young, be my friend, for I shall always be yours. I desire ever to invoke you in my needs.
To your special care I entrust the decision I am to make as to my future husband/wife. Direct me to the person with whom I can best cooperate in doing God's Holy Will, with whom I can live in peace, love and harmony in this life, and attain to eternal joy in the next. Amen.
In honor of St. Raphael: Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be.
