For my dad and mom
« on: December 05, 2010, 01:14:35 AM »
My dad is in his mid-60s and already has a plethora of medical conditions mostly related to his diabetes.  I recently went home to find that my father has been in a lot of pain for the past three weeks in his lower back which is not surprising considering he is overweight, but this has never been a problem before.  He has not been able to sleep and though he can stand with ease, walk with relative ease and even bend over to get something, the pain still crops up.  Needless to say, I'm worried about him especially since I know that with his diabetes his conditions will worsen.  It has even put my mother in a difficult spot as now she is responsible for doing everything around the house since he cannot help.  Prayers are requested for both him for healing and for my mother that she may have the patience to endure.

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.
