For my mother
« on: September 02, 2017, 02:18:36 PM »
Please, pray for my mother, who had a biopsy that removed cancerous tissue from her intestines.  She went on a tailspin and is anxious about the results of tests on whether she should be submitted to an aggressive chemotherapy too.


Please, thank God that her doctor removed the affected tissue on time.

Lord have mercy.

St. Luke and St. Pantaleimon, pray for us.
My only weakness is, well, never mind

And you'll sleep, but they'll find you

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river

Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no clue, so there's that.

Thank You, Lord, that the doctor removed the affected tissue from Sharbel's mother's intestines on time. Please bless and have mercy on this situation, her, Sharbel, and their family. Through the prayers of the Theotokos and all the saints, in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Amen +

Lord, have mercy.
If you cannot remember everything, instead of everything, I beg you, remember this without fail, that not to share our own wealth with the poor is theft from the poor and deprivation of their means of life; we do not possess our own wealth but theirs.  If we have this attitude, we will certainly offer our money; and by nourishing Christ in poverty here and laying up great profit hereafter, we will be able to attain the good things which are to come. - St. John Chrysostom

Please, continue raising my mom in your prayers. 

Her doctor prefers to err on the side of caution and will schedule a surgery to remove up to 1m of her intestines.

Most holy Theotokos, save her!  Lord, have mercy on your servant!

May the Lord grant a successful surgery and a speedy, complete recovery.

I'm glad to say that the surgeon was satisfied with the results of my mom's surgery and she's recovering pretty well.

Thank you.
