Meanwhile, we were able to take our pilgrimage to New Orleans for the Blessed Francis Seelos healing Mass on October 6. It was a great trip and very moving. It was such a blessing for us to be able to go. We stopped by EWTN on our way down and then were able to stop by and visit my sister, Maureen, and her family in Oxford, MS on the way back.
While at the Seelos Shrine, we picked up a Novena booklet of healing through the intercession of Blessed Francis Seelos. We plan on starting the Novena on October 23 in order to finish on All Saints' Day, November 1st. If you would like to join us in the Novena, you can follow along at this blog: www.gloryofamerica.blogspot.com or you can send me your email address and I'll send you the prayers everyday for the duration of the Novena.
We are full of hope, and with your prayers, I know that we can be joyful in each day we have together. God bless you!
