The holidays are especially hard for families

The holidays are especially hard for families

The holidays are especially hard for families who have a loved one in prison. Prison walls keep people who are incarcerated locked in, while at the same time keeping others–spouses, moms, children, aunts, brothers, sisters, and also grandmothers–locked out.  Many times, it is a grandmother who suffers in silence over the incarceration of an addicted grandchild.

As we journey with Christ through this fasting season to the Glorious Nativity of our Lord, please join OCPM in prayer by lighting a candle for the healing of those who are in prison and their families, especially remembering the grandmothers.  By your prayers broken lives may be touched by the Light of Life, families may be reconciled, and a grandmother may find comfort and joy.

“Prayer is a harbor in the storms of life, an anchor for those who are storm-tossed, the treasure of the poor, the security of the rich, the healing of the sick, the preservation of health. Prayer banishes evil things, and preserves the good.”  St. John Chrysostom

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on those in prison, their families, and especially their grandmothers.  Amen.
