Friend with cancer
« on: December 17, 2007, 12:36:08 PM »
Friends,

Please remember in your prayers the servant of God SUE who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.  She's having a double mastectomy in a couple of weeks.

Thank you.

Prayers...
An old timer is a man who's had a lot of interesting experiences -- some of them true.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

O Christ, Who alone art our Defender: Visit and heal Thy suffering servant Sue, delivering her from sickness and grievous pains. Raise her up that she may sing to Thee and praise Thee without ceasing, through the prayers of the Theotokos, O Thou Who alone lovest mankind.
