Prayer Request: Missing Hikers

by Josée

I’ve started this blog post a few times and not finished it in the hopes of hearing some good news…

My friend Rachael and her boyfriend Jonathan went hiking on labour day long weekend and didn’t return when they were expected. There has been active search and rescue efforts for the last week but no clues of their whereabouts have been found.

Last Sunday a large group of people stayed after church to pray the rosary for Rachael, Jonathan and their families. It was beautiful and much needed. Hubby and I have also been praying a novena asking St. Jude to intercede in this desperate case. My heart aches for Rachael, Jonathan and their families. Please keep them in your prayers.

“Pray, hope, and don’t worry! Worry is useless. God is merciful and will hear your prayer. Prayer is the best weapon we have; it is the key to God’s heart. You must speak to Jesus not only with your lips but with your heart.”–St. Pio

In Ireland we are also praying that Rachael and Jonathan will be found soon.
