Prayer to St. Elizabeth Ann Seton (loss of children)

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton stained glass - Cathedral of Mary Our Queen – Baltimore, MD

O holy and venerable St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, you knew the pain and anguish parents feel at the death of a child as you experienced this pain several times.

I ask you to pray for (name person) and all who have lost children.

Place them in the Blessed Mother’s arms and ask her to go with you to the Holy Trinity and pray they have the grace, strength, and courage they need to grieve the loss of their beloved children and in time that they experience healing and find new joy in their memories of their children.

Intercede on behalf of the children who have died before their parents and ask the Lord to welcome them into eternal peace in Heaven with Him.

I ask all this through Christ our Lord.   Amen.
