The Missouri State Highway Patrol said the body of a missing dancer with the St. Louis Ballet Company was discovered Wednesday morning. She was also a member of the community of St. Louis Young Adults which belongs to the Archdiocese of @catholicstl.
Investigators say a private plane pilot located what he believed to be a person in the water and notified the Patrol. Members of the Missouri State Highway Patrol Water Patrol Division responded and recovered Stroik’s body.
In your hands, O Lord, we humbly entrust our brothers and sisters.
In this life you embraced them with your tender love; deliver them now from every evil and bid them eternal rest.
The old order has passed away: welcome them into paradise, where there will be no sorrow, no weeping or pain, but fullness of peace and joy with your Son and the Holy Spirit forever and ever.
Please keep her and her family in your prayers.. 😔🙏❤️

Around a month ago we entreated everyone to pray for our friend Edu, who is fighting childhood leukemia by undergoing an experimental treatment. Edu’s treatment has yielded positive results so far, but we are still unsure of it being a success. Please keep him in your prayers!

“I’m a day behind and playing catch-up, but I wanted to ask you – how can I pray for you as I pray the Saint Jude Novena? He is known to be the Saint to call upon during what we see as impossible situations. If you are feeling like you are in need of prayer, or if you feel as if you are about to give up hope, or if you have – I want to pray for you during these next nine days through his intercession. Let me know how I can! 🌿”

Due to complications and the severity of her heart defect, the surgeon has declared Priscilla inoperable. This is disappointing and obviously not what we expected, but I refuse to accept this as her fate. I feel so deeply in my heart that God will provide and make another way. She will be discharged and will return to Uganda within the next few days, and so, the journey continues… I hope and plan to place her at another hospital to get the surgery she so desperately needs. Her life is worthy, her life matters and I will not stop fighting for her. I ask for continued prayers in the meantime, for strength for Priscilla and her family as we wait to find another hospital. God make a way! 💙🙏🏻

“We were never promised one minute with you, and yet we have had six and a half amazing years.
Riley Rose has bleeding in her brain and multiple new cancer spots – we are officially off of any trial and she is too unstable to travel home.
We will bring her home for a full Catholic funeral and mass at Sacred Heart. We don’t know when this will happen, but it will be soon. Maybe a week, maybe less.
Our hearts are broken into so many pieces.
Please pray, pray for our family, pray for Matthew, and pray that we may see God in all of this.”

Prayer Request by @frmichaelsliney, join us in praying for his mother🙏❤️
Padre Pio of Pietrelcina, obedient father, you loved the sick and infirm more than yourself because in them you saw Jesus. In the name of God you performed miracles of healing in body, soul and mind.
Your intercession with God healed the ills of past and present and strengthened people to respond with confidence to future challenges. Those who came to you regained a sense of spiritual integrity as you rekindled hope in their lives, and encouraged them to renew the spirit in their hearts.
Through the intercession of Our Heavenly Mother, may we experience your powerful assistance and be healed in our bodily and spiritual needs, particularly (name it) and gratefully give praise and thanks to God for all His blessings. Amen.
Please help us pray for Fr. Armando Brédice, he was an altar boy of Saint Padre Pio! #RIP 🙏❤️🕊
As a young priest, Father Armando wanted to carry out his mission in Africa although God had different plans for him. He was sent to Brazil and shortly before his death he acclaimed, “living here for all these years only makes me feel love in my heart for everything I’ve done. Everything passes, except love, "the priest said in an interview with the newspaper Correio Braziliense.
"I will be in this work until God wills, because I gave my life to Christ and, until my last moment and breathing, I will dedicate myself to Him,” he added.
Fr. Armando Brédice has passed away yesterday, at 100 years old. He is one of the two centenarian fathers in the Archdiocese of Brasília, Brazil. The other one is Father Guibaldo Orestes. They both are Italian but have been in Brazil for a very long time.
Father Armando Brédice, the Brazilian community loved and continues to love you! Thank you for giving your life to Christ, may He welcome you into His kingdom! 🕊
Eternal rest grant unto Fr. Armando Brédice, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon him.
May the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

A Prayer for Trust and Confidence in God’s Mercy
by St. Padre Pio
O Lord, we ask for a boundless confidence and trust in Your divine mercy, and the courage to accept the crosses and sufferings which bring immense goodness to our souls and that of Your Church. Help us to love You with a pure and contrite heart, and to humble ourselves beneath Your cross, as we climb the mountain of holiness, carrying our cross that leads to heavenly glory. May we receive You with great faith and love in Holy Communion, and allow You to act in us as You desire for your greater glory. O Jesus, most adorable Heart and eternal fountain of Divine Love, may our prayer find favor before the Divine Majesty of Your heavenly Father.
