We have been overwhelmed by the responses of love, prayers, and offers to donate blood for Walter. We are so deeply touched and just want to shout a resounding THANK YOU out to you all. Walter is one lucky little boy to have so many friends near and far.
Today, for the Catholics among us, we will beginning a Novena to St. Michael the Archangel, that he may pray to God for us and with us in these days before, during, and after surgery. We ask that you join us beginning today (August 26), and ending nine days from now, the morning of Walter’s surgery (September 3). See Novena below.
Prayers, love, good vibes, happy thoughts, positive energies from everyone: Christian, Jewish, Hindu, and everything else alike, are deeply and sincerely felt and appreciated. Thank you for sharing your heart and your hopes with us. Our cup runneth over with gratitude.
Novena Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
St. Michael the Archangel, you are the prince of angels but in your humility you recognized that God is God and you are but His servant. Unlike satan, you were not overcome with pride but were steadfast in humility. Pray that we will have this same humility.
It is in the spirit of that humility that we ask for your intercession for our petitions…
That Walter Klimas may have a successful surgery, free from complications, and endure minimal pain. That God may guide the hands of his doctors, and give them wisdom to make appropriate decisions given their circumstances. That Walter and his family may have strength and Faith in even the most trying of times.
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.
