Prayers for Bella Santorum and her family

According to Rick Santorum's official campaign website, he and Karen have admitted their daughter, Bella, to Children's Hospital in Philadelphia. Bella has a genetic syndrome called Trisomy 18. This disorder, also known as Edward's Syndrome, is more common in girls and results in a variety of of physical and cognitive anomalies.

This may seem like an insurmountable setback for the Santorum campaign. But, Rick Santorum won't flinch, or even worry about making this decision to take a moment off from campaigning. This candidate, this father -- Rick Santorum -- has his priorities straight. He's exactly where he's supposed to be, at the head of his family.

Perhaps, as an unintended result, it may even win the hearts of more voters because it shows the extraordinary character of the man.

He's a family man, he's a fighter and he's conservative! It's a winning combination!

Please pray for the Santorums for strength and healing -- especially for Bella health.

Prayer for a Sick Child

St. Gerard, who, like the Savior, loved children so tenderly and by your prayers freed many from disease and even death, listen to us who are pleading for our sick child. We thank God for the great gift of ( name of child ) and ask him to restore this child to health if such be his holy will. This favor, we beg of you through your love for all children and mothers. Amen.
