    St. Raymond of Pennafort, pray for my beloved and saintly mother who is on her death bed, send her the company of the angels to minister to her and the saints to pray for her. Jesus meek and humble of heart, have mercy on us. Jesus, be thou my love. These were the favourite prayers of my parents. Amen

    St. Raymond of Pennafort, please pray for me right now for I feel unsettled with so many comments, suggestions and silly talk all around me. In truth, very little action supports all the talk. Help me to get over the negative and angry feelings that are now within me. Give me patience, wisdom and humility to tide over all these feelings, because I know that reacting to hurt feelings will only aggravate the situation. Amen.

    I am praying to St. Raymond of Pennafort so he can intercede, present these prayers to our Lord, Jesus Christ to help my lawyer do and say the right things so the prosecutor will dismiss this case or find me not guilty of an act I have been wrongly accused of. Thank you. Please St. Raymond and God, hear our prayers!

    My father in law, an attorney, married a Roman Catholic woman who bore 6 children. Her faith and prayers were finally answered when 6 months before their grandson (my son) was ordained a priest, my Father in law at the age of eighty-two became a Roman Catholic taking the name Raymond as his confirmation name. See prayer really works. Thank you St Raymond. patron of cannon lawyers.

    I have always loved Holy Mother Russia, and Saint Raymond's Feast Day is January 7th, the same day January 7th is the Feast Day of Christmas in Russia. However, my other Saints Feast Day, St. Raymond Nunnatus, was August 31 when I was born a difficult birth on August 30th, 1942. St. Raymond Nunnatus is the Saint that Mothers (my Mother, Elizabeth) prayed to when their is a difficult pregnancy. FROM: RAYmond Daugerdas 1237 8th Avenue, Natrona Heights, PA 15065 USA
