Intercessory Prayer to Saint Rose of Lima
God our Father, for love of Thee St. Rose gave up everything to devote herself to a life of penance. By the help of her prayers may we imitate her selfless way of life on earth and enjoy the fullness of Thy blessings in Heaven. Grant this through Our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, who lives and reigns with Thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
The above prayer can be found on Catholic websites.

Ash Wednesday is the beginning of Lent which prepares us for Holy Week and the Resurrection of Jesus on Easter Sunday. Lent is a time of fasting and prayer that leads to a spiritual renewal of our soul.
Miraculous Signs of Archangel Michael
"Please join in prayer for God's divine intervention to mitigate (end) violence throughout the world. It’s important now more than ever to pray for our nation and families, especially for people who are subjected to adversity and disrespectful behavior on a daily bases. Our world is in dire need of healing and peace - with prayer everything is possible." -Loci B. Lenar
