Intercession: May those who long for a child of their own be filled with trust in God's loving plan.
Prayers: Our Father, 3 Hail Marys, Glory Be
Reflection: It can be very
difficult and painful when the Lord doesn't answer our prayers the way we hope.
We may have many doubts and questions, wondering why we face the challenges
that we do. Yet even though our suffering is often shrouded in a sense of
mystery, we believe that the Lord loves us with great tenderness and compassion
that is beyond our imagination. Knowing this, we can trust that "all things
work for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose"
Acts of Reparation (choose one):
One Step Further: "Seven Considerations While Navigating Infertility" (www.usccb.org/navigating-infertility) seeks to provide compassionate guidance that is both practical and informative for married couples who are walking on this road. Although geared to such couples, the article is also helpful for anyone to read, offering insight into the experience of infertility and giving awareness of the need for sensitivity in our relationships with those who may be affected.
