Prayers for father with lung cancer
« on: October 14, 2011, 11:38:29 AM »
Please prayer for my father that has recently been diagnosed with lung cancer.  He says he prays and believes in God and he recently attended a Vespers service with me but this is the first time he has been to church I can ever remember.  I'm concerned about his soul.  What should I do?

Lord, have mercy.
"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.

Lord, have mercy!

May someone with greater wisdom than I answer your question.
“But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either.” +Luke 6:27-29
