So sorry. Lord, have mercy on Christos3's mother.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

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.

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

She is still undergoing tests and speaking with several oncologists for their opinions. She is doing her best to stay mentally strong through prayer and staying busy at the church. We won't know staging and course of action until later this week. Please keep her in your prayers.

Lord have mercy!
Many Energies, 3 Persons, 2 Natures, 1 God, 1 Church, 1 Baptism, and 1 Cup. The Son begotten only from the Father, the Spirit proceeding only from the Father, Each glorifying the Other. The Son sends the Spirit, the Spirit Reveals the Son, the Father is seen in the Son. The Spirit spoke through the Prophets and Fathers and does so even today.

Thank you for the prayers. Although diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer, prayers have been answered as  the Lord has sent her great doctors to fight the cancer. We pray the medication she receives will starve the cancer and shrink the tumors.

Great news! And sorry so long to share. As I mentioned my Mother is diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer that moved from the breast to the lung. We made sure that she found the best oncologist her city has to offer, but I sent in prayer requests to this board, to our Priest, to the Sisters at St. John's Monastery in Washington State , and lastly I contacted St. Nectarios Greek Orthodox Church in California. They were very kind. They sent my mother holy oil to put on the areas where she has tumors.

She completed her first set of scans. And Glory be to God the tumors around her lung shrank (she can now breath without problems) and the tumor in her breast is shrinking too. Yes, modern medicine is a miracle, but I truly believe this would be a different post without the prayers from friends, family and my Orthodox brothers and sisters. Plus the Holy Oil.

I will continue to say prayers and give thanks to the Lord.
