Did you know that all of heaven is waiting for you to ask them to help you? The communion of saints — the blessed who have gone before us to heaven – can pray for us, petition God for us. All you need to do is ask them for their help. When you become overwhelmed, pray and seek help from the saints; they are one of the greatest spiritual resources you have. Many mothers can relate to the Blessed Mother, Mary. She is the most powerful intercessor you have. Many fathers can relate to St. Joseph. His prayers are particularly powerful for fathers and families as he was the head of the Holy Family. Go on-line and search for prayers to these and other saints. There are many great prayers, litanies, and memorares to the saints.
Bless the Lord, O you his angels, you mighty ones who do his word, hearkening to the voice of his word! Bless the Lord, all his hosts, his ministers that do his will! – Psalm 103:21-21
