For a friend

A young woman I know thought she was pregnant for many months, went for the ultrasound, and instead of a baby they found molar cancer.  They gave her surgery within a few days and she had an anointing service at church, but she lost a lot of blood during surgery and is having a rough recovery.  I do not know if she has lost her ability to bear children.  Please pray for her.

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

"For, by its immensity, the divine substance surpasses every form that our intellect reaches. Thus we are unable to apprehend it by knowing what it is. Yet we are able to have some knowledge of it by knowing what it is not." - St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa contra gentiles, I, 14.
