During these days, many of us are feeling the pressure of hardship. We can look to many saints for encouragement, especially those who experienced poverty, loss of loved ones and violent crime. Maria was one of those saints and is eager to help us to clean to Christ's joy despite our hardships.

We will be praying to the little saint of great hope and joy to overcome any discouragement we might be experiencing during these days and to give us the courage to live and give God's pure love.

Please send us your prayer intentions and join us starting 28 June in a novena leading up to the her feast day on July 6, 2020. We will also bring your prayers to the next First Friday Mass in San Diego.
