My wife's cancer
« on: March 08, 2011, 07:31:07 AM »
My wife Katrina was diagnosed on Friday with breast cancer:  it is large, but operable and she will have radiation and chemotherapy afterwards.  It is likely to be a single but maybe double masectomy.  For our children, Elias (19 months) and Lila, (7) please pray.  Please pray not only for Katrina's healing, but for her to see the value of reconnecting with God and the sacraments anew. Pray also for me a sinner.

To the Russians abroad it has been granted to shine in the whole world  the light of Orthodoxy, so that other peoples, seeing their good deeds, might glorify our Father in Heaven, and thus obtain salvation

May Lord have mercy, and grant healing of both body and spirit!
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.

Holy Unmercinaries and Wonderworkers, visit our infirmities. Freely you have received, freely give.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

I had breast cancer a couple of years ago although not as bad as Katrina's and I am convinced St Luke the Surgeon was with me the whole time. I will say his Akathist for her. He is truly a wonderful saint - still a doctor in heaven.
