Oh, Caridad del Cobre, hear my plea. I am in great need of your help. I don’t know who else to turn to. I have knocked on God’s door several times, but no one seems to be home. I have reached out to others, but they all seem to be busy with other matters. I don’t know what to do or where to go. I am drowning in the vast waters of emotional pain and desperation. I no longer have the strength to fight and stay afloat.
Why has God abandoned me? What have I done to deserve this? It seems that everything is coming down hard on me, leaving me defeated and discouraged. The burden is too much for me to bear. I can’t do this alone. I need your help. Please, help me and speak to God on my behalf. Ask Him to have mercy on me, and lift this burden from my shoulders so that I may have the strength to help myself.
Caridad Del Cobre's response
My child, I hear your plea. You are not alone. I am here to release some of the burden from your shoulders and carry it for you. I will take your pain and suffering, and make it my own. I will not let you drown. I am here to lead you out of the darkness and into the light. Rest now, and do not be afraid for I am here to watch over you.
God has not abandoned you. He has been by your side. Although you said you were drowning, He was keeping you afloat and calming the waters. Every tear you shed, He was there wiping it away.
Certain life lessons are harder than others. They are necessary in order to nourish the soul.
You are more brave and powerful than you think. Believe in yourself. I will be by your side now and forever.
According to legend, the prayer below was revealed to three fishermen, "who were saved by the Virgin from a raging storm."
Know ye, my beloved children, that I am the Queen Mother of Almighty God; all those who believe in my great power and become my devotees must always carry my likeness as a relic on their persons to keep them company in their moments of greatest needs. I will free them from any evil threats, from unexpected death, from the bites of rabid dogs, and from attacks of wild beasts; I will keep them from suffering unexpected accidents. A lone woman carrying my likeness shall not be scared, for she won't be bothered by phantasms as long as she says, "La Caridad is with me!" Amen. Jesus!
