Cancer patient, probably won't make it through the night
« on: February 11, 2011, 12:54:23 AM »
My stepson's paternal grandmother Peggy has been battling cancer for a number of years now. She was told a couple of months ago there was nothing else that could be done. She has deteriorated drastically over the past week or so. Her breathing is slowing down and she probably won't make it through the night. The doctors have told the family not to go home tonight. Please keep her in your prayers.

The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
