CORONAVIRUS UPDATES

A Message from Olga Samaniego, CDA National Regent
“We need to stay positive and trust in the Lord. God is with us! Blessings!”

A Message from Karen Kasparbauer, CDA State Regent
“We pray that during this time, all remain calm (take a deep breath) and stay healthy. Take time to have a small retreat by yourself, saying prayers, a rosary, chaplets, or just listening to what God might be saying to you.”

A Message from Susan Frischkorn, Vice-Regent of Court #1768
“These are trying times, but let us not lose faith in our Lord. He will see us through all our troubles. I hope you are all doing well and are healthy during this difficult time due to the coronavirus. Let us remember to look to Mary our Mother, Patroness, and model: Ponder our situation, keeping abreast of the latest news and regulations; Pray for strength to persevere; and Place our trust in God’s holy will; He will never forsake us. God bless each and all of you. In Unity and Charity.”

CDA Membership Prayer

Remember us, O Dearest Mary, Our Mother and Patroness of Catholic Daughters. We offer you our work, joy and trials. We ask your intercession as we reach out to women with love and enthusiastic invitations to increase our membership. Help us, O Most Holy Virgin, to be faithful to your Rosary, for peace in our homes, our nation, and the world. We ask you to bless and protect our families and guide the unity and charity we do for our “Circle of Love.” We ask this through your son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns forever and ever. Amen.

Prayer to Saint Therese, Patroness of Court #1768

Little Flower of Jesus, ever refreshing troubled hearts with your promised roses of blessing, in your wondrous intercession, we place our trust. Obtain for us from the Sacred Heart of Jesus the blessings of which we stand in the greatest need. Shower the roses upon us, that faithfully following in your footsteps, we may merit the crown of eternal glory. Amen.

Prayer for Our Seminarians

Heavenly Father, You sent your sons John Edeve Augustin and Joseph Choi to fulfill Your promise of salvation. You call young men to Your priesthood just as Jesus called the first Apostles. Provide our Seminarians with the spiritual strength to follow Your call. We pray that they be guided by the Holy Spirit as they prepare for priesthood. Grant them the courage to faithfully live the Good News as they learn to minister to Your people. We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen. Mary, Queen of the Clergy, pray for them.

Mary's Mantle

Mother Mary, may this mantle in your honor ever remind us of your unfailing love and care for us. You are the Masterpiece of God’s creation. May we strive to imitate you in your faith, your strength, your joy, and your care and concern for all. May we say with you, “Behold, the handmaid of the Lord,” and always place our trust in God’s loving holy will. Amen.

(sing to the tune of “Edelweiss)

Bless our food, bless us here.
Come, O Lord, and be with us.
Make our talk glow with peace,
let your love now surround us.
Friendship and peace,
may they live and grow,
Live and grow forever.
Bless us friends, bless us here,
Bless your people forever.
