This Sunday, I will be travelling to Costa Rica to provide testimony for the State in defense of the 2000 Constitutional decision that severely restricted IVF. It might be an uphill battle, but I am praying to St Gianna for guidance and intercession
Please pray for Costa Rica
Saint Gianna, heroically Christlike wife, mother and
physician, I ask the help of your prayers, as I strive to follow
your holy example in my physical and spiritual trials.
Help me, by your prayers, to recognize the suffering of the
Cross as the way to pure and selfless love of God and my
neighbor. May your practice of medicine with priestly care of
both body and soul inspire physicians to see the Face of the
suffering Christ in their patients.
May your loving acceptance of illness and death help
patients to know and do God’s will in all things, uniting their
sufferings to the Passion and Death of Christ for the salvation
of the world.
Saint Gianna, pray for us always that we may have a heart,
meek and courageous, like the Heart of Jesus, in Whom we
find our healing and strength.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke
