Sunday vigil Mass is full of them.
Tonight I spoke to Kevin. He's a recovering alcoholic, disabled due to a head injury. He lived with his mom who died at 3PM on Christmas day. He doesn't know what to do now, "because she took care of me." He told me he may be placed in a half-way house, "but I can't endure that! I won't last." He is a devout guy - in his 40's I think. I'm not able to help him except to pray for him. I know a couple of other orphans just like him. They sometimes stop by adoration - these guys lost their moms too - and now they are on their own.
Please pray with me for these adult children, newly orphaned. They are very frightened that they will fall away and be lost.
