For me
« on: March 01, 2009, 11:27:47 PM »
Dear brothers and sisters,

I wish you all a fruitful lenten season and humbly request your holy prayers once again on my behalf as I begin the last round of chemotherapy tomorrow at 12 pm. This time the duration of treatment will be 4.5 months and it will be more severe than the first round. I must confess as usual to being very scared and worried. Thank you so much for your prayer support. It means so much to me and has helped me tremendously in many ways.

Lord, have mercy!

You are in our prayers!

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
