Mother with Pneumonia
« on: January 20, 2008, 10:34:45 PM »
I learned yesterday that my mother Martha was admitted to a local hospital with pneumonia and bronchitis, evidently acquired after she caught a cold.  I talked with her today, and she's doing much better, but she still needs our prayers for her quick recovery.

Lord have mercy on Martha. May she have a quick recovery to good health.

My wife and I went through the same thing last year so I can say that she does surely need prayer.

Lord have mercy and grant her a speedy recovery.

Lord have mercy. My mother has also struggled with this disease.

Lord have mercy on your handmaid and grant her healing.
Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so. -- Douglas Adams

O Christ, Who alone art our Defender: Visit and heal Thy suffering servant Martha, 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.
Domine Iesu Christe, Fili Dei, miserere mei, peccatricis.

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.
