Please pray for my Aunt, Matushka Miriam whom this Thursday 16th of January she is undergoing major surgery on her MultipleSclerosis neurogenic bladder called "Hemi Indiana Bladder Augmentation"

Lord, have mercy. Most Holy Theotokos pray for her. St. Nectarios of Aegina pray for her.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

Lord have mercy.
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
Writings from the Philokalia: On Prayer of the Heart,
Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.

My aunt is still in the hospital. Not everything is going as well as could be hoped. Nothing horrid, but the ongoing recovery seems to be hampered by multiple minor complications.

Please continue to left her up in your prayers.
