Personal prayer request




My dear cousin, who is also one of my best friends, has just been diagnosed with lung cancer in both lungs, spread to the liver. She is a non-smoker.

This beautiful young woman is a devout Catholic, and the single mother to three school-aged children. It is a complete shock. I am asking everyone who reads this to please storm heaven for her. Bring out the big intercessors if you have them. I cannot thank you enough.

  10. Oh, Leila, I am so sorry! Your dear cousin and her family are in my prayers - FERVENTLY! Her young children need her. It is so hard when these challenges hit a family with only one parent. I am also praying for the extended family and her friends who will hopefully be able to step up and help this family through this. Godspeed.

  19. Praying. I feel like this year, the "pink Sunday" of Advent was NOT their joyful Sunday. :( So much hard news.

  20. Give her a Miraculous Medal to wear and say this prayer daily. The Memorare: Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help or sought your intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence I fly to you, O Virgin of Virgins, my Mother. To you do I come, before you do I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions but in your mercy hear and answer them. Amen.
