Praying with Christmas Cards

I had an inspired idea that I'd like to share with my readers.  
Do you sometimes dread the task of sending Christmas cards?  Do you swear this will be the year you stop sending them out?  Are you sometimes sad because special people on your list have passed away? 

This year, with each Christmas card you address, pray to that person's guardian angel or patron saint for an increase in God's grace in their lives. 

For those who have passed away, say a quick prayer for their souls' when you think of them at Christmas time.  Include a prayer for their families who miss them.

This is a simple, easy way to give more than a card this Christmas! Thanks for posting! God bless...

What a great idea, Dymphna! I really dread sending out cards, but now it will be easier because of what you wrote.

I'm getting where I dread them too. That's why I'm going to do this starting this year.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
