Urgent Prayer Request for Possum the Cat


From Angela Mary:
Please pray for the safe return of our beloved burmese kitten "Possum", who has been missing since 24/06/2013. He's 8 months old, desexed and has a loveable and inquisitive nature, but as we live on a sugar cane farm, unfortunately we are prone to predators. I've been calling and searching high and low and storming heaven with prayers that he will make it home safely. I truly believe God placed him in our lives for healing as I had lost my beloved Dalmatian Phoebe 18 months ago, and had grieved deeply for her. Thank you for your prayers and God bless you all and your beautiful animals! xoxo

Urgent Prayer Request for Scarlett the Dog



From Susan:
I came upon your blog on St Roch, patron saint of dogs, & I would like to ask for prayers to St Roch for our Scarlett. Scarlett is an 8 month old puppy we adopted from the pound. Scarlett has a heart murmur. My vet believes, from the sound of the murmur, it is a septal wall defect, or in layman's terms, a hole in her heart. We could have a lengthy cardiac work-up to be certain, but even if we did we could not pay for the open heart surgery to repair it. I am asking for prayers for her to live, not in pain or being starved for oxygen, but well & with us for many years. I know this is a miracle I'm asking for, but with God nothing is impossible! She is a sweetheart & we love her. Thank you!

Urgent Prayer Request from Chelsea Rose the Cat

From Lou Ann:
A dear friend in Colorado posted me that her beloved 22-YO (yes, 22 years old) feline, Chelsea Rose, has now entered a palliative stage of care, having suffered some very profound setbacks in the last few weeks in her very frail senior state. Chelsea Rose is the love and joy of Susan's life, her very being, so even though accepting of Chelsea's senior state and frailty it's still, of course, difficult. Might a prayer request be posted, please, for Chelsea Rose and her human mom, Susan. Everything is being done to keep Chelsea Rose as comfortable as possible . . . she still knows her mama . . . but we pray for blessings upon them both for whatever time may be left, and a very peaceful transition.

Prayer Request for Jill the Dog

From Fenian:
Please pray for my baby Jill (our little dog) she was lost last June 19, 2013 around 11 p.m. in front of our store. We assume that she was captured during our busy time cleaning our house. We did our best to find her on the time that she was lost. All the streets that she could go to were already searched but no Baby Jill was found. We are confident that if she gets out in our store/house she can't go far in our area since she's a home body and scarred of going out. Captured or not, I'm begging to please help us pray for her to return in our home safely and/or for us to find her as soon as possible. My family and I are so much in pain right now since we miss our Baby Jill so much. She's one of the sweetest dogs I've ever know. I know God is very Good! Please join us in praying! Than you so much! God bless!

A Dog's Purpose

Shared by my brother via email.

A Dog's Purpose?
(from a 6-year-old).
Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron, his wife Lisa , and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle.

... I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn't do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home.

As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience.

The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker 's family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away.

The little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker's Death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives.

Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, ''I know why.''

Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I'd never heard a more comforting explanation. It has changed the way I try and live.
He said,''People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life -- like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?'' The Six-year-old continued,
''Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay as long.''

Live simply.
Love generously.
Care deeply.
Speak kindly.
Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn things like:
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure Ecstasy.
Take naps.
Stretch before rising.
Run, romp, and play daily.
Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
Be loyal.
Never pretend to be something you're not.
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently.
There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So, love the people who treat you right. Think good thoughts for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of LIFE...Getting back up is LIVING...

St. Anthony of Padua - Happy Feast Day!

This blog family owes a lot to St. Anthony. I can't begin to tell you how many pets have been found thanks to him! Mahalo nui loa St. Anthony!  Those of you who have been personally helped by St. Anthony should consider offering up St. Anthony's bread for the poor. St. Anthony's Bread on the Feast of St. Anthony.
St. Anthony statue, Molokai
Happy Feast Day!

This is what St. Anthony wrote regarding the Cross:

"The Christian must lean on the Cross of Christ as the wanderer leans on his stick when he takes a long journey. He must be well etched in the minds and hearts of the Passion of Christ only because the word is derived from that source of life and peace, grace and truth. Let us turn our eyes to Jesus, our Lord nailed to the Cross of salvation to crucify our flesh to his Cross mortifying the senses; weep for the sins we have committed ourselves and those of our neighbor".

St. Anthony, when you prayed, your stolen book of prayers was given back to you. Pray now for all of us who have lost things precious and dear.
Pray for all who have lost faith, hope or the friendship of God.
Pray for us who have lost friends or relatives by death.
Pray for all who have lost peace of mind or spirit.
Pray that we may be given new hope, new faith, new love.
Pray that lost things, needful and helpful to us, may be returned to our keeping.
Or, if we must continue in our loss, pray that we may be given Christ’s comfort and peace. Amen.


Thanks to Mary Jane for sharing the following:


Tuesday is dedicated to Saint Anthony because of the many and astounding miracles which occurred on the Tuesday on which his body was laid to rest.

So numerous were these prodigies, as has been told before, that the somber funeral was transformed into a triumphal procession. It is said that no one invoked the aid of the Saint without obtaining relief. All returned to their homes comforted, praising God and saying: "This is the day the Lord hath made to Saint Anthony; let us be glad and rejoice therein."

Since that time the devout clients of the Wonder- Worker have dedicated every Tuesday to Saint Anthony as the day on which God was pleased to show forth the power of the Saint.

This pious custom gradually spread throughout the Catholic world. In Franciscan churches on each Tuesday, devotions were held in his honor, and faithful clients come to pay homage to him. Saint Anthony himself has chosen Tuesday as his own. He has obtained throughout the centuries countless favors, spiritual and temporal, for those who have honored him on that day.

The Church has set Her approval upon Tuesday as Saint Anthony's day by generous indulgences. A plenary indulgence is granted on every Tuesday of the year to all who receive the Sacraments and on that day visit a Catholic church where the Blessed Sacrament is exposed, and there pray for the intentions of the Holy Father.

A plenary indulgence is granted on each day of thirteen consecutive Tuesdays (or Sundays), once a year, to all who perform an act of piety in honor of St. Anthony, receive the Sacraments, visit a church or public oratory and pray there for the intentions of the Holy Father (Leo XIII, Mar. 1, 1898).

"Our beautiful cat Buzz died today. His heart just gave out. He was 15 years old and such a joy to us. We came home from church tonight and he was sleeping on the couch. He got up to go outside and walked a few feet to the driveway and then collapsed. We shall miss him, he was such a good cat..."
