FIND YOUR FAITH AND HAVE AN ADVENTURE.
It is Sunday. Molly’s favorite day. A sacred day. A day where she and her fiancé Drew would go to Mass at St. Joseph’s Basilica with their favorite Priest, Fr. Mario and then go on some amazing adventure. Your challenge today is to hold this day sacred by attending church, offering up prayers, reading scripture, loving others, being more kind than usual and by finding joy in adventure….
As a family, we are finding so much solace in the outpouring of love, prayers and communication. Your support has been incredible and we are so very grateful. We are seeing photos of Molly that we’ve never seen, hearing stories we’ve never heard, and connecting with so many people from around the WORLD…..some we know, and some we don’t! It is so heartwarming, comforting, and calming. Please keep them coming. Molly had such a grateful heart that we are positive she is saying, “Thank you everyone for helping my family. I love them and do not want them to suffer.”
We are already seeing Molly’s Miracles in our world. She is saving the lives of five people. She gave of her life so that others may live, there is no greater gift on this earth.
Here are just a few of the other many miracles we are hearing about (and we will continue to share as these stories are incredible and a sign of Molly’s heavenly influence here on earth). A candle was lit in Peru to show Molly’s light, a Mass and a rosary was said in Kyrgyzstan, prayers are being offered in honor of Molly from Japan and Lithuania, a cardboard #MollysMiracles sign appeared in the northern woods of Wisconsin, a large prayer group of friends arrived at our home in CO for the flag raising, there ribbons hung on trees as visible reminders, an email arrived from someone who does not know us and did not know Molly but learned about her years ago from a classmate who always talked about “my friend Molly”, this letter shared the profound impact of Molly’s life on hers even after having never met her, healthcare workers were overcome with emotion as they learned Molly’s story, a family said dinner prayers and talked about Molly’s life (the children didn’t know her), a rosary was said on a Lake in South Carolina, prayers have been offered from the mountain tops of Colorado, a group of college friends got together this weekend to tell “Molly stories”, bouquets of flowers were left in the Rose Garden at Washington Hospital specifically for Molly, several people sent us amazing songs that started at exactly the time of the flag raising, a coworker of Molly’s that we had just met referred to her as “the salt and the light”, multiple people have reached out to say they are now starting “The Bible in a Year” program, and people are returning to church. These are just a few of the things we’ve heard and we are certain there are many, many others that are a testament to Molly’s life and light to the world. We will be sharing more in the future.
This is an unimaginable journey made easier by truly knowing Molly’s influence, her gifts on this earth, and her incredibly strong faith. When our faith wavers and the grief becomes overwhelming, we must ask, what would Molly want for us?
Please help with #MollysMiracles by living one or more of today’s challenges. Your challenge today is to hold this day sacred by attending church, offering up prayers, reading scripture, loving others, being more kind than usual and by finding joy in adventure….
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
