Masses, prayers ... and patience

Nothing with New Catholic's mother has changed: she remains, unfortunately, in critical condition.  NC reports that it is clearly evident Masses have more than once brought her back from the brink. So please our dear priest readers offer any Masses you can for her recovery. Our dear lay readers, of course, please continue to pray for her.

Also, another call for patience. With NC out, posts may be less frequent. It may take longer for your comments to appear. And, yes, to the horror of some who are quick to criticize, a less-than-charitable comment or two may sneak through the hundreds we moderate every day. Please try to forgive us in advance.

You may send news to any of the contributors listed on the right, including me (although I will not be posting much for the next couple of days as work takes me completely away from you).

God bless you all!

As an ex-Firefighter/EMT I was put on the Rescue Truck; which means I was the first to respond to any critical emergency. I did CPR on a mother in front of her 16 y/o daughter, and then the mother's husband showed up. The horror and grief was palpable.

I was taught to never say, "I know what you're going through." But I have a sense, New Catholic, I have a sense, and my heart goes out to you.

I certainly will do. Be assured of my prayers and sympathies. My mother is ill herself (diagnosed with ovarian cancer yesterday - any prayers would be appreciated) and I know how awful it can be.

Sub tuum praesidium confugimus,
Sancta Dei Genetrix.
Nostras deprecationes ne despicias
in necessitatibus,
sed a periculis cunctis
libera nos semper,
Virgo gloriosa et benedicta.


Continual prayers assured!

I will also remember NC's mother in my prayers. Also, off topic, but very relevant is this article, concerning Archbishop Piero Marini calling for equal rights and recognition for same - sex civil unions.

Dear Friends!

I need your urgent help with prayers from the laity; and any priests reading, of your charity would you include the two individuals I will now mention in your Mass intentions?

I have not seen the love of my life, a Russian girl I knew when living in Russia, for twelve years. Our relations ended very badly. Both our faults.

A few days ago she contacted me, to my great shock.

In brief, she is married, living in Europe and has a small daughter. Eight months ago her husband had a heart attack, suffered brain damage and is in a deep coma from which he is not expected to emerge.

Tatiana, his wife, has since developed breast cancer which following a period of remission has now moved to her brain.

Your prayers and Masses for the intentions of Tatiana and her family would be most gratefully appreciated.
