My Grandma is in the last stages of her life.
« on: May 21, 2012, 12:38:55 PM »
My grandmother, Aurora, who is my last living grandparent, is now in the last stages of her life. She is rarely conscious, does not talk, and is no longer taking food or water. Please keep her in your prayers.

Lord have mercy.
Even if we have thousands of acts of great virtue to our credit, our confidence in being heard must be based on God's mercy and His love for men. Even if we stand at the very summit of virtue, it is by mercy that we shall be saved.

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy.

Even though she might appear to be unconscious, many times, patients like this can hear and feel embraces.
If you can visit her, sing songs to her and hold her hand.

To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.

Be comforted, and have faith, O Israel, for your God is infinitely simple and one, composed of no parts.

That's what we have been hoping, and the nurse has confirmed this. So we hug her, talk to her, prayer with.
