My mother, Odete Salvati, is now able to drink and to swallow. Thank you so much for your prayers for my mother. Tomorrow the nurses are going to let me know by telephone if my mother, Odete Salvati, will have the X-ray of whether or not the food goes to her stomach or to her lungs. The nurses are checking my mother's, Odete Salvati, history if the food went to her lungs. Right now, can you please continue prayer for Odete Salvati that the food and the liquid goes straight to her stomach. If the food and liquid goes to her stomach then she will have the surgery to remove the feeding tube. Afterward, we can take her home so my mother, Odete Salvati, can be with my father, Jim Salvate. My father really misses her. Thank you so much for all of your prayers.

Pray requests for my mother, Odete Salvati and for her roommate, Brenda Harris. They are both in Alamitos- West rehabilitation. My mother is suffering from a stroke that she is on a feeding tube and currently not able to walk. I don't know what is her roommate situation is but all I know is that Brenda Harris is in part of the hospice program which had literally broken my heart.

Please pray for their health and God's guidance.

Thank you so much. This really means a lot to me.

Please pray for Odete Salvati for a resolution by next Wednesday that she gets off the feeding tube. If she does not get off the feeding tube by next Wednesday, (May 4, 2022) I don't know what to do. I really need help.

Prayers going up for relationships/ friendships/ acquaintances to be centered on God's pure love, with eyes, hearts, and minds focused soul-y on pleasing the Lord first and foremost, and helping others get to Heaven. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.

"CCC 2350: Those who are engaged to marry are called to live chastity in continence. They should see in this time of testing a discovery of mutual respect, an apprenticeship in fidelity, and the hope of receiving one another from God. They should reserve for marriage the expressions of affection that belong to married love. They will help each other grow in chastity."

"CCC 1661 The sacrament of Matrimony signifies the union of Christ and the Church. It gives spouses the grace to love each other with the love with which Christ has loved his Church; the grace of the sacrament thus perfects the human love of the spouses, strengthens their indissoluble unity, and sanctifies them on the way to eternal life (cf. Council of Trent: DS 1799)."

"CCC 1618: Christ is the center of all Christian life. The bond with him takes precedence over all other bonds, familial or social. From the very beginning of the Church there have been men and women who have renounced the great good of marriage to follow the Lamb wherever he goes, to be intent on the things of the Lord, to seek to please him, and to go out to meet the Bridegroom who is coming. Christ himself has invited certain persons to follow him in this way of life, of which he remains the model:

"For there are eunuchs who have been so from birth, and there are eunuchs who have been made eunuchs by men, and there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. He who is able to receive this, let him receive it." (Mt 19:12)

1619 Virginity for the sake of the kingdom of heaven is an unfolding of baptismal grace, a powerful sign of the supremacy of the bond with Christ and of the ardent expectation of his return, a sign which also recalls that marriage is a reality of this present age which is passing away.

1620 Both the sacrament of Matrimony and virginity for the Kingdom of God come from the Lord himself. It is he who gives them meaning and grants them the grace which is indispensable for living them out in conformity with his will..."

Lord Jesus, You have risen to new Life! Give me new eyes with which to recognize Your Presence in the world around me. Sharpen my vision so that I see beyond the ordinary events of each day and into the extraordinary reality of Your Grace. Brighten my view of the world with renewed hope in the coming of Your Kingdom. Soften my gaze so that I view others with the kind of tenderness and compassion You showed to so many. May each day of this Easter season provide glimpses of Your glory. In Your sacred Name (Jesus), I pray. Amen. (St. Joseph's parish bulletin online, Easter Sunday).

Jesus, I trust in You!

Thy Kingdom come! ~Regnum Christi motto.

Dearest St. Joseph, I humbly ask you for healing of the heart , and mind of my grandaughter's Camille's boyfriend Sebastian D L H. Please let him see the error of his cruel way, in his verbal treatment towards Camille, He refuses to accept any responsibility for the reason why Camille was left no option but to break the relationship off. They still love and miss each other terribly, He must stop being hurtful with his words, accusatory, suspicious of everything she does, jealous of her friendships, Ibe able to tell her he loves and adores her as a loving man should. Please grant him the ability to speak his feelings to her openly to her, restore his ability to communicate in a proper manner. They both want this relationship to continue, but without intersession and a cleansing and healing of hearts and minds, to begin anew, it will never succeed. I pray for nothing more than to see these two beautiful souls loving and happy again. Please, Devine St. Joseph, perform, you miraculous intercession, on Sebastian and Camille, and bring them back together with love, respect, trust, better communication, and have them have eyes, hearts, and minds focused soley on each other and never let "temptations'

or outside influences, destroy their love and committment to each other. Please reunite ,Camille Diaz and Sebastion D L H

together again. Thank You ,Devine St Joseph, Amen In Jesus Holy Name
