  13. I have been praying these nights ends since April 2017- I wanted my daughter to meet her future husband and enjoy a full life with a blessed marriage. She had just started dating someone after taking a break from a disappointing break up. Well 4 years later – he proposed last secemeber and we are flying to Wyoming tomorrow for their wedding this weekend. ❤️

  14. I am sorry, obviously i have not prayed fervently, or enough as my marriage has not changed as i wish it would have. 53 years and problems exist due mostly to stubberness of both of us, my husband’s hearing problems, ED, and believing he is always right. Yes, i think i am right too, but not always, but i have depression and anxiety problems and that brings a lot of fighting and saddness into our marriage, along with misunderstanding. He has changed a lot in the past 5 years since his hearing has gone downhill, and he has retired from his own business he built from the start 32 years ago and was always his own boss. Then 5 years ago he passed it on to our son in law, and was no longer in control. He feels he has lost all control of everything he loved. He still works in the business but not constant 7 am to 7 pm as he was used to. Many days no work, or 4 or so hours. He needs to volunteer or find a part time job but feels he is downgrading if he does. He is lost, and takes all out on me, cause he knows i will still love him, but it is tough. Tough to the point where i wish to just die. the kids see it too, but always side with him to keep his spirits up, and so here i sit, very unhappy and depressed. I want to travel and see the parts of the US i have not, and even Italy, and Belgium, home of grandparents, but he has no desire, and i know hearing loss and ED do not help that. He can never say ‘i love you’ or ‘i am sorry’. I really need all the help to stay with him and try to make him happy. Please pray and help US. Thanks. s

  15. Thank you Jesus, thank you Mary and Joseph for hearing my prayers. This Novenas prayers has done a great things in my life and family. The last Novena I pray God bless me with a new job, and this Novena of marriage and family God bless my husband with a very good job. My heart is full of joy my God is at work.

  16. I prayed for the strength to cope with the anxieties and stresses that I had been suffering in daily family life. These past 9 days I have felt so calm, assured and supported by the Holy Family. I feel like a better mother. Thank you.

  17. On the 6th day of this novena I had my prayer answered!!!!

He went on Chemo for a few months and the doctor said the best option to get rid of the cancer permanently would be a bone marrow transplant. She also said it was very dangerous for older adults like him and one possibility would be death during the procedure.

They are both 83 and have been married 63 years. On Sunday my mother passed away and today on the 9th day of the Novena we are going to the funeral home for viewing and tomorrow on the 10th day of Thanksgiving (Mary’s feast day) she will be buried.

Immaculate Heart of Mary, and Sacred Heart of Jesus, continue to help us and have mercy on us! Amen!

  81. I prayed my son in law would have the strength to be s good father to his son while his mom was away. He was the best dad ever. I knew my prayers had been answered. He was not angry,yelling,or sending him to his room. He did farther and son things together. Thank you.

  82. My son-in-law got good news that his cancer had not spread to the bone.
    My eldest daughter and her husband (the same son-in-law) are working to repair their marriage.
    Her son and his wife seem to be gettting along so much better.

    Thank you Blessed Mother and your son Jesus.

  83. My son and daughter in law had been dragging their feet a bit on baptizing their special son who had many weeks in the NICU; yesterday, I received note that they are starting baptism classes next Thursday .
