My son-in-law's grandparents
« on: July 10, 2009, 09:12:36 AM »
Dear folks, please say a prayer for the grandparents of my son-in-law, Pam (Nana) and Jack.

They both are first-generation immigrants to the USA from England, now in their 70-s. A couple of months ago, Nana was diagnosed with lung fibrosis. She has difficulty breathing and needs an oxygen mask. As it frequently happens with these patients, she developed a rather high pressure in her pulmonary blood circuit.

Nana and Jack are a wonderful couple, very loving and funny (in a good sense), with an incredible sense of humor and optimism. However, Jack is so used to have Nana near him that his son and his daughter-in-law (my son-in-law's parents) worry a lot, just what will happen to him if Nana's condition worsens.

Thank you so much for your prayers.

Ἀθλοφόρε ἅγιε, καὶ ἰαματικὲ Παντελεῆμον, πρέσβευε τῷ ἐλεήμονι Θεῷ, ἵνα πταισμάτων ἄφεσιν, παράσχῃ ταῖς ψυχαῖς ἡμῶν.

Ἅγιοι Ἀνάργυροι καὶ θαυματουργοί, ἐπισκέψασθε τὰς ἀσθενείας ἡμῶν, δωρεὰν ἐλάβετε, δωρεὰν δότε ἡμῖν.

Lord, have mercy!
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.
—St. Isaac of Syria
