Personal prayer request: another turn for the worse

Once again I try your patience: after what seemed like days of improvement, my dear mother MJ has had another turn for the worse. Please, please, keep her in your prayers; and, if you are a priest, please remember her with special attention, if possible.

  3. Dear NC,
    Asking for prayer is not trying our patience--it is the ultimate gift of sharing our Faith through the power of prayer!
    Might I add that we need prayers for a dear friend Evelyn fighting pneumonia in both lungs. She has given us so much through books, articles, holy cards, and tales of her life with SSPX and FSSP parishes. Mother of 12 and the epitome of a strong Catholic woman, she is a treasure!
    God bless you and your mother in a very special way today.

    The love you have for your dear mother is so beautiful, and I thank you for sharing it with us even though it is very difficult.

    Dear friend,

    I have prayed a decade of the Rosary for your mother and for yourself.

    Whatever happens, always remember that we daily pray the following "fiat voluntas tuas, sicut in Caelo et in terra".

    God almighty has His ways to which we can only say "serviam"...the key to the greatest Joy of them all.

    Yours in Christ,

    Louis

  9. I'm always not being a good child to my own troubled parent for all of this time. It is made me don't know until now;what is the real meaning of parenthood.
    However,for your mother, in my unworthy prayer, I could only look at our Blessed Virgin Mary;the Mother of Christ,to ask from her to intercede. Hopefully the Lord God will be the strength of your mother and also you,NC.

    Sincerely,
    John Paul The Third

  11. I shall pray for her, vile sinner for certain though I am.

    But remember brother the words of the apostle - Dissolvi me melius est et cum Christo manere. Melius et non peius.

    It is good to fall asleep in Christ.

  29. I am praying to the Blessed Mother for your, sweet, Mother that she will reach Our Lord through her!

    MARY
    OF THE
    MORN

    Through the Gate O'Morn
    He came
    In a stable born

    Where St. Joseph
    Held her hand
    Both so tired and worn.

    Patient donkey
    Just outside
    Munching on some corn

    Saw the love
    St. Joseph had
    To Mary he was sworn.

    Saw St. Joseph's
    Furrowed brow
    Knowing future scorn

    Saw St. Joseph
    In the now
    Fighting 'gainst forlorn.

    Then the donkey
    Heard with joy
    The herald of a horn

    Angel Gabriel
    Announcing wide
    History's curtain torn!

    Then St. Joseph
    Walking by
    Some fleecy, sheep some shorn

    Behind this wife,
    He'd reach new life
    Through Mary of the Morn.

  37. Praying for your mother and you.

    Ave, maris stella,
    Dei mater alma,
    atque semper virgo,
    felix cœli porta.

    Sumens illud «Ave»
    Gabrielis ore,
    funda nos in pace,
    mutans Evæ nomen.

    Solve vincla reis,
    profer lumen cæcis,
    mala nostra pelle,
    bona cuncta posce.

    Monstra te esse matrem,
    sumat per te precem
    qui pro nobis natus
    tulit esse tuus.

    Virgo singularis,
    inter omnes mitis,
    nos culpis solutos
    mites fac et castos.

    Vitam præsta puram,
    iter para tutum,
    ut videntes Jesum
    semper collætemur.

    Sit laus Deo Patri,
    summo Christo decus,
    Spiritui Sancto
    honor, tribus unus. Amen

    (The Ave Maris Stella finds particular prominence in the "Way of Consecration to the Blessed Virgin Mary" by Saint Louis de Montfort.)

  39. I'm certainly praying for her and you, too. This is a horrible time for you, but I dare say that it is something that comes to us all. And yet to each of us it is a unique event. Trust in God and in our Blessed Lady.

  40. Certainly praying for your mother and for you. As others have said, never hesitate to ask. And I will pray for the other sick mother mentioned here too.

    When St Teresa of Lisieux was very ill as a young child her father had a novena of Masses offered in honour of Our Lady of Victories, for Therese to be cured and of course he was answered. I had a serious personal difficulty that I thought could not be resolved and so had a novena of Masses offered in honour of Our Lady of Victories and was answered very quickly. A very powerful novena indeed. God bless.
