For James
« on: May 09, 2010, 09:51:13 AM »
An older man in my parish named James has been battling with cancer for quite a while now. He was just this last week on his way to the Mayo clinic when his doctor informed him that in addition to all his other problems he now has prostate cancer as well. So please pray for James and his family.
All my hope I place in you, O Mother of God, keep me under your protection!

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
