Kevin and I arrived safely in Rome on Friday morning, May 12, 2017. Here is a picture of us together with St. Peter’s Basilica in the background. We are staying with Leon Griesbach, who lives as a music director with his family at the North American College in Rome. Kevin and I plan to visit at least two churches a day, in Rome: one for daily Mass and the other for a prayer hour. On Tuesday, May 15th, we plan to do as the Romans do, and go to Assisi where we plan to visit with Sts. Francis and Clare. Please keep us in your prayers as we care for Kevin’s great aunt and grandmother, who will soon be joining us on our pilgrimage. Please pray that we might care for them as Martha and Mary cared for Jesus.

If you have any prayer requests, please do not hesitate to send them to us at mattv09@gmail.com.

In Christ,

  1. please intervene God. I’m hurt inside, i am so tired to cover everything by pretending and no matter how hard I pray nothing seems to be working, please pray for Damianus aditya christie and me. I have been waiting for reconciliation and peace for me and him, I have been struggling with pain for the past 3 years. I know You knows my pain God, You always know what was happened because You see everything a most hidden corner, Father you say, knock and the door will be opened to you. I come with a broken heart, I feel hopeless and emptyness. i depend on you and still hope, if God deign, please God soften and touch Damianus aditya christie heart for me, He means a lot to me. I really love him and disappointed to him at the same time. I can’t touch his heart, only God can change people’s hearts. i know that prayer is a powerful thing, please help me face things that are beyond my capabilities. because God, You have power to help me. if you do not want this reconciliation to happen, please give me strength to overcome the bitterness. Teach me how to remain grateful when the hardest one, teach me to love You more than anything. I really need a miracle, thank you
