Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I am writing to you on behalf of Esteban, Lucero, their children, and the entire Minnesota Emmanuel Community, to beg your prayers for our brother Esteban. Many of you have been praying for him over the past year since his diagnosis of ALS. ALS is a neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. It causes muscles to atrophy and leads to the inability for the brain to control muscle movement. In the past year, the disease has progressed quickly and now our brother is very sick and suffering immensely.
During this week we are visited by many of our brother priests in the Community, including Fr. Henri Marie Mottin, who is responsible for all our priests. With him, he brought a relic of Pierre Goursat, with the plan to bring it to Esteban and pray for a miracle. Tomorrow evening, a group of us will gather in their home to pray for him and we need your help. Please join us in praying for a miracle through the intercession of Pierre. With so many of us asking the Lord together, surely He will hear us!
We will be praying tomorrow, Wednesday, February 20th around 7pm (CST). Please join us in this prayer for our brother Esteban, if possible, in front of the Blessed Sacrament. Any words or images you receive, please let us know. I am sure they would love to hear from all their brothers and sisters who are praying for them (email: firstname.lastname@example.org). Thank you, may God bless you!
Lord Jesus, we pray for the beatification of Pierre Goursat.
Inspired by a fervent desire for the salvation of souls and a great love for the Church, he worked with faith and hope for the Church’s spiritual and apostolic renewal.
Lord, through his intercession, grant us the grace of trusting you fully, serving you generously and doing your will.
Give us a heart which is open to adoration and overflowing with compassion for all people.
Set us ablaze with fire and love for the evangelization of the world.
Lord, through the intercession of the Servant of God Pierre Goursat, we ask you with insistence to grant many favors to all of our brothers and sisters in humanity, particularly the poor and those wounded by life. Lord console the afflicted, strengthen the weak, heal the sick!
In a particular way, we entrust to you Esteban Garcia, that he may be completely healed and return to his family and children.
