Prayers for A Friend's Sister
« on: July 21, 2004, 04:19:07 PM »
Please pray for my (soon-to-be) godmother's sister and husband.  She's pregrant and due to deliver in 6 weeks, and doctors have diagnosed her with an agressive form of breast cancer that's already spread to the lymph nodes.  Any prayers would be greatly appreciated.

O Thou who art the Physician of our souls and bodies, heal Thy servants!
Arise, O God! Judge the earth, for to Thee belong all the nations!

Lord, have mercy!
Quote from: Fr Alexander Schmemann
The Gospel is quite clear: both saints and sinners love God. "Religious" people do not love him, and whenever they can, they crucify him.

Of course, OC.net is not reflective of the Church, but is rather a surreal bubble. I have visited a lot of different parishes around the world and have listened to many hours of AFR...
