"All for" the Sacred and Eucharistic Heart of Jesus,|
all through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary,
all in union with St. Joseph
Heavenly Father, Gwen Coniker was a model for family fidelity. She
taught parents and grandparents how to sacrifice everything to
fulfill God's will and become persons and families for others.
Thank you for her work in the spirit of Pope John Paul II for the
renewal of the Church and society through family consecration.
Gwen was a person for others who joyfully lived Your Will by
fulfilling the responsibilities of each present moment. She faithfully
and lovingly carried out the duties and commitments of her state in
life. She showed us how to be always grateful in the deepest of
trials, and how to discern and do God's will moment by moment.
Gwen also showed us how to gracefully die a prolonged and
painful death without complaint or self-pity.
Like Gwen, we now consecrate ourselves, and all the members of
our families, and the Apostolate for Family Consecration to the
Sacred and Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, through the Sorrowful and
Immaculate Heart of Mary, in union with St. Joseph. Please help
us to remember to pray "All for" before every action or reaction.
Heavenly Father, we ask you to glorify Gwen. May the Church raise
her to the honor of the altars for the encouragement of family and
parish consecration in the truth to the Holy Family, and for the
protection of our families from the evil one (cf. John 17:15-17).
We make our prayer and petition for the work of the Apostolate for
Family Consecration, and our special requests (mention your
intentions) through Christ our Lord. Amen.
