“I’ve come to you in humbleness and humility, asking that you may pray for my very devout, life-long Catholic mother, Geri Garcia. She’s been a hard-labor working woman all 59 years of her life, until this Summer when she had multiple strokes & improper treatment, followed by a very unexpected, life-threatening brain hemorrhage that had doctors telling us to to firstly, expect that she wouldn’t make it, and if she did live, to start thinking about making the life-or-death decision because she could very well be in a vegetative state permanently. We’d never choose death, being the deeply religious family that she raise me & my 5 siblings to be. While we were so hopeful for my Mom’s life, we still had the spiritual maturity to be content with whatever God’s will would be.
She ended up pulling through the emergency surgery that involved removing half her skull & it has taught us so many good things. While her mental & physical abilities have been severely diminished, her core spirit, fright, and unshakable Catholic faith remains & we’re forever thankful to have our mom for many more years. I ask if you could pray and share this #GoFundMe for the payment of her medical expenses & home renovations at my brothers home for her permanent residence. Nothing keeps my mom from getting to church. Priorities.”

Fr. Joseph Mungai of Kenya is raising funds for a well in his home village to honor his beloved mom, Lucy Nungari Mungai. Lucy was a wonderful mother who died just a few months ago because she lacked access to safe water.

Water for the needy, in memory of a priests mom.
Father Joseph Mungai is asking for help to bring clean water to the people of his homeland in Kenya. He’s asking in memory of his mom, Lucy, who died at the age of 53 from an illness complicated by the lack of clean, abundant water.
“Providing clean drinking water has been a passion for me for a very long time,” Father Mungai told Catholic Ecology in an interview via email. “When I was young we could walk for more than 20 kilometers to go and carry water on our backs to bring back home for domestic use.”
Just after his ordination four years ago, Father Mungai was assigned to a parish in Kisumu, Kenya. some 350 kilometers west of Nairobi. “In this parish, they had a bigger problem than we had at home.” While the people of Kisumu could get water from a local river, the quality of the untreated water was poor—and often dangerous.
And so Fr. Mungai’s passion grew.
Many kilometers outside of Nairobi, Gatura is a semi-arid area. “The only way to access water is by drilling a water borehole,” Fr. Mungai said. “The recent study indicates that water table is between 250-300 meters deep,” which would require some $21,000 for drilling. Add in the costs for a well’s installation, electricity, storage, distribution, etc., and the cost more than triples.

Hi everyone! I’d like to introduce you to Edu, a nine year old boy who has been fighting childhood leukemia for almost half of his life.
Edu has had leukemia since he was five. He is unable to attend school due to his illness, but still enjoys many activities kids his age participate in, such as playing Fortnite and walking his dog, Oakley.
His parents have found an experimental treatment in Washington D.C., and could use any monetary support to help Edu keep fighting leukemia.
If you are unable to donate, we ask that you please keep Edu and his family in your prayers, as we are all praying to God that the experimental treatment will provide Edu with the strength to keep up his courageous battle. Thank you for for all of your support, both spiritual and monetary.

A woman in Michigan spotted this car on the road. It says “Single dad of 3 needs Kidney, Type O, (586) 298-4234.”
Let’s pray and hope someone steps up to help this single parent in need. If so, we will setup a #GoFundMe to cover all travel expenses, time needed to recover, and most importantly as a way to say THANK YOU for helping this single parent!🙏💕
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” (John 13:34-35)
“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them” (Ephesians 2:10).
“Charity is certainly greater than any rule. Moreover, all rules must lead to charity.” -St. Vincent de Paul
“If we look forward to receiving God’s mercy, we can never fail to do good so long as we have the strength. For if we share with the poor, out of love for God, whatever he has given to us, we shall receive according to his promise a hundredfold in eternal happiness. What a fine profit, what a blessed reward! With outstretched arms he begs us to turn toward him, to weep for our sins, and to become the servants of love, first for ourselves, then for our neighbors. Just as water extinguishes a fire, so love wipes away sin.” -St. John of God

“First, I want to thank @tomasravaioli for agreeing to do these videos for me. On my last post, there were some skeptics. So, I asked Father Tomas to please send me something to put their minds at ease about him still being in Papua New Guinea, and for those who can and want to donate.
I am the one who asked him how we could donate to help these adorable children.
He and I are in different time zones. In PNG it is a little after 9:00 am on September 12th, and where I am it is after 6:00 pm and still September 11th!
Father had to leave PNG a few years back due to his own health reasons, but came back once well to continue his mission there.
Since I posted about this this morning, over $1200.00 more has been raised to help the people in PNG bringing the total to $1430.00. That is almost halfway to their goal!
There are 2 ways to donate, one is in my bio and the other is in my highlights from my stories. One is for medical, and the other is to go toward them purchasing a sawmill that will help them with their building needs.
If you can’t or don’t want to donate, then please just remember them in your prayers.
Thanks again @tomasravaioli for being so understanding and putting others minds at ease. ….and…. a BIG thank you to all of you for your prayers and donations. God bless 🙏🏻”

Fr. @tomasravaioli is fundraising to help kids buy treatment for their skin. It costs approximately $300 USD per person for this kind of treatment. Please consider sponsoring a child and help them get treated. 🏥❤️

Fr. @tomasravaioli is asking for our help!! He is serving in Papua New Guinea 🇵🇬 and wants to help buy treatment for the kids:
In our mission in Papua New Guinea, we are helping a lot of kids with a skin disease called “Grille”.
Transmission is usually by direct personal contact between family members sharing household items or from parent to child soon after birth. High humidity and warmth are likely environmental factors in the incidence of infection.
In order to get rid of this disease, each kid has to take a tablet of a medicine called “Griseofulvin” once a day, and each tablet costs USD 1. And since they should take medicines during 300 days, the full treatment to help a kid costs USD 300.
Please Consider Donating & Sharing the #GoFundMe Campaign: https://www.gofundme.com/helpingkidsinpapuanewguinea

These priests go around and do confessions for people. It’s truly beautiful. We can do the same thing. If people are struggling. Give them a comforting hand. Little things can completely change ones life.
