For Cheryl
« on: January 27, 2010, 11:32:59 AM »
Please pray for an old friend of mine, Cheryl, who teaches history at a small university in New England. She is just a couple of years older than me (mid-50-s), and was recently diagnosed with what they called "a rare kind of breast tumor." Cher is expecting surgery next week. She has two sons, John and Benjamin, both now grown.

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

Holy Unmercinaries and Wonderworkers, visit our infirmities. Freely you have received, freely give.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Thank you for your prayers! Just got a short message from Cher, saying that the surgery went well and she is now at home. Says her head aches and she misses caffeine, but other than that she is OK. :)
