    Dear St. John Neumann, pray for me that my book based on our faith may sell in Catholic schools. Sales from this book help provide houses for the poor and victims of different disasters. Thank you St John, I know that my prayer has been received and that I will soon see the results. Amen

    Dear St. John Neumann,

    When we look at your Holy Picture, we feel drawn to your holiness, the divine magnetic power keeps attracting towards your Saintly life with tremendous love for Christ, faith in Christ and to love people as Jesus loves us. All my family members and I love you, help us all to love Jesus as you loved.
    My prayer to to plead Jesus, our Lord and God to pour His mighty Holy Spirit on each members of our family and on all those who've asked to pray, to whom we've promised to pray & those in need of our prayers, Forgive us, purify us, convert & transform us, bless & heal us, strengthen & anoint us all to live every moment of our lives for the Glory of God and serving the humanity as Jesus wants us. Heal, bless all those whom we have hurt & caused pain. Please help 3 people to come back to Jesus, to participate in the Holy Eucharistic Mass & to receive Jesus in the Holy Eucharist with great love. Good job for 3.

St. Elizabeth Ann and St. John Neumann, pray for all the staff that work in every Catholic school, pray that the Holy Spirit is always with us enlightening our hearts and minds..you are such a great example of love and hard work...thanks, dear Lord, for sending such good persons to inspire so many people.
