Wife of a friend's cancer

The wife of a friend recently re-developed cancer after it had seemed to go into remission. The whole family really needs our prayers.

"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.
