Prayer Request for a Sick Daughter

CMR reader Bridget has a prayer request for her daughter:

I wanted to ask if you could please include my daughter Ella in your intentions and/or family prayers. She is a little over 4mo and is/has been listed for heart transplantation (status 1A). She already had surgery back in May, but her heart is just too severely defective to repair surgically again. My family and I only met E when she was 3 days old, but it was serious love at first sight. We all fell hard for her; then again, she is the most ridiculously cute baby on the planet. Truly.

But I digress. We are praying for complete healing of her heart and are asking for intercession through Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha. Would you join us in our prayers?

I understand if my request seems bold. I don't expect a response, but I figured I would ask. My baby girl deserves nothing less than all I can give.
If you can spare a moment, please say a prayer for E and her family.

Bridget, I can definitely say that when I drag the kids out of the pool tonight and throw them upstairs to bed, we'll all say a prayer.

Sweet Bl. Kateri hear our prayers for Ella's healing, and petition Our Lord on her behalf just as the widow petitioned the judge for justice. We ask this through Christ Our Lord, Amen.

Memorares on the way. Bridget, you sound like a wonderful, devoted mother with a beautiful family. May God bless you all.

Our own family's saint, Maximilian Edward, has been notified. He's exceptionally good with pre- and neo-natal intercessions.

We'll pray, too.
