NOVENA FOR THE HEALING OF THOMAS RUTKOSKI
THROUGH THE INTERCESSION OF MARIA ESPERANZA
TO AID IN HER CAUSE FOR BEATIFICATION.
Many of us have received help & blessings from Tom Rutkoski, through his prayers and wonderful witness of faith. Tom has shown us that miracles do happen when people have faith and intercede to God for them. Now it is our turn to return the favour, and be the ones that intercede to God on behalf of Tom, Catholic Evangelist and founder of Gospa Missions (www.gospa.org).Dear friends:
We are asking you to join us in praying with faith, a Novena through the intercession of Maria Esperanza, for Tom�s healing from cancer and kidney failure; and for his continued faith in God and His will.
This novena can be prayed at any time, but we are asking that you join us in praying this novena monthly from the last day of the month (30/31) to the 8th day of the following month.
We also encourage you to have Masses said for Tom & Mary, and to send them a card or note of encouragement.
Please pass this request to others so we can gather as many people as possible, to shower Tom and Mary with our prayers, love and support.
May Our Lady keep you all close to Her Immaculate Heart wrapped tightly in Her Mantle of Love and Peace.
Merciful Father, You blessed Maria Esperanza with an abundance of spiritual gifts for the consolation of your people. She served You as wife, mother, and missionary to promote the unity of the family and the reconciliation of all peoples. You enabled her to be the central figure in the manifestations of the Virgin Mary, under the title of Reconciler of all Peoples and Nations, in Betania. Grant us the grace to follow her example of humility, hope, and unconditional love.
Through the intercession of your servant, Maria Esperanza, we pray for the healing and reconciliation of our families, and for the fraternal unity of the entire human family.
Especially, we beseech You to grant us the favours we now request (healing of Tom Rutkoski from cancer & kidney failure and his continued faith in God and His Will) through the merits and prayers of your servant. Likewise, we humbly implore that she be inscribed in the Church�s catalogue of saints, as a universal model of the beatitudes.
We pray all this according to your holy will, cherished by your servant until the end, through Jesus Christ, your Son, Our Lord. Amen.
With the ecclesiastical approval of Bishop Paul G. Bootkoski
of Metuchen, New Jersey, December 4, 2009
We've prayed for Thomas and also ask you to pray for my wife Marianne, who has kidney failure too!
