Prayer Intentions

The Brothers of Holy Cross gather each day in community to celebrate the Eucharist and to pray Morning and Evening Prayer. St. André once said, “When praying, one speaks to God as one speaks to a friend.” In his prayer, Bro. André remembered all of the people he had encountered that day, asking St. Joseph to guide and protect them.

If you would like the Brothers of Holy Cross to pray for you and your intentions through the intercession of St. André, please click here to submit your prayer intention.

Prayer Request for Young Adult Event

Please help us pray for a young adult Godly event this weekend. That all may go according to God's will. These young adults tend to get "clicky" although solid Catholic and sometimes without realizing leave their "guests" feeling painfully isolated. May they behave as they profess their faith to be.

God bless and thank you very much.

Forgive me for using the Prayer Space to mention other things other than my request for prayers.
It seems this is the best way to get a message off to you and let you know that I think of the Provinces and their needs.
I don't have Columba Hall's e-mail, so kindly ask Br. Michael Becker to send it on to me.
Thank you very much! I hope I have not been a "pest" in communicating to you the way I have.
God bless you all!
Keep smiling and loving it's contagious!

Dear Brothers' (Sharing # 3)
The main reason why I left Holy Cross was because, at the time, my Mother, brother and sister had medical problems of terminal cancer. There was no one to take care of them. Rather than see them institutionalized, I felt I had no other choice but to leave after my 4th Year of Absence. I took care of them for 5 years after, until they passed on.
It was like a Shakesperean Drama, to be sure.
I did, in my free time, take advanced courses in ESL (Univ. of Maine)

Dear Brothers, (Part 2)
Please pray to Brother Andre to create a miracle for me regarding a residence, as mentioned in Prayer Intention 1.
I pray for the Brothers of Holy Cross often that SOON there will be vocations, especially for the United States Provinces. (Don't get angry with me,some of you, but getting back to the Religious Habit,as a sign, wouldn't hurt but advance Brothers' vocations that is not disguised as a Secular Institute!)
I miss the Brothers so much.

Dear Brothers,
Please remember me in your individual prayers that I find a new place to live here in Ft. lauderdale, FL. Where I am now is being renovated and I have to be out of place by the end of December, this year. I found out last Friday.
Also, I hope someone in the Province will contact our beloved Pope Francis, asking him to stop omitting BROTHERS when he mentions Sisters and Priests Religious.
I miss Holy Cross very much. Teach at The Language Academy. Check Facebook (Pascal Pesce)

As an ex-Brother of Holy Cross, the loss of Brother John is very much like a loss of a member of the family. Dealing with his loss, for us, seems to be a negative....... but in reality, what we really have is an additional saint to whom we can direct our supplications for intercession on behalf of our temporal needs.
