Very Worried
« on: October 05, 2010, 07:39:32 PM »
Please remember me. I am very scared, very worried. I had almost completed nearly 8 months of chemotherapy which was very hard on me, and just last night, to my shock and horror, I discovered I have a lump in my neck: likely swollen lymph nodes just above the right clavicle. I spoke with the dr. in Emergency, and he didn't seem very positive about it at all. I will need to have diagnostic tests done asap.
+ Our dear sister Martha (Rosehip) passed away on Dec 20, 2010.  May her memory be eternal! +

Oh no, Martha!

You are not only in mine, but, in my mother's prayers, as well.

Remember, you are NOT alone.

Lord, have mercy on Your dear and sweet handmaiden, Martha!  Heal her of all that ails her.  Return her to good health!

Praying, praying, praying!

Saint Nectarios
the Wonderworker,Metropolitan of Pentapolis

Kontakion (Tone 4)
You lived your life in a holy way, O St. Nectarios; being a Bishop rich in wisdom, you have glorified the Lord with your life of virtue; being strengthened by the power of the Holy Spirit, you drive out evil spirits and heal the sick. Intercede for those who come to you in faith.

Nectarios lived from 1846 to 1920. He lived and ministered in Greece, Egypt, Libya and the Island of Aegina. He was repeatedly slandered because of his quick ascent in Church office, which caused him to be demoted and even flee from his accusers. Many healings and wonders were performed by him during his life and countless miraculous healings have been attributed to his relics, which remained uncorrupt for many years. He is especially invoked to heal cancer.

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

Lord have mercy. Through the intercessions of our Holy Father St. Nectarios of Aegina, heal your handmaiden, 'Rosehip",  in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

 May the Lord comfort you in your sufferings. May  he help you bear your cross. May the Lord in his infinite compassion have mercy on you and heal you.

Lord, have mercy.
There is no more evident sign that anyone is a saint and of the number of the elect, than to see him leading a good life and at the same time a prey to desolation, suffering, and trials. - Saint Aloysius Gonzaga

We are with you and you are in our prayers. Most importantly, Jesus Christ is with you as is Our Lady, the Holy Theotokos and all His angels.

May the Archangel Michael, known as a great instrument of God for healing, purify your body whilst at the same time you purify your heart from every bad thought and every fear. That His flaming love burn from withing your heart enlightening and healing your body and soul.

Amen!

Many Energies, 3 Persons, 2 Natures, 1 God, 1 Church, 1 Baptism, and 1 Cup. The Son begotten only from the Father, the Spirit proceeding only from the Father, Each glorifying the Other. The Son sends the Spirit, the Spirit Reveals the Son, the Father is seen in the Son. The Spirit spoke through the Prophets and Fathers and does so even today.

Lord have mercy!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

I will pray for you "Rosehip." I am so sorry for your misfortune, and please let us know as soon as you know something. You have been through so much, I hope that this is a false scare.
