Urgent Prayer Request

Candlemas0001_2Please pray for Lenny Izzo, the husband of Joan Izzo (director of my daughters' dance school and dear friend). He will undergo open heart surgery today. Our constant thoughts and prayers are with Lenny, Joan, and the children.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection,implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.Amen
