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.

Lord, have mercy.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
