Rose Grimm

Happy feast of St. Matthias, dear family and friends!

Today begins the novena leading up to the feast of St. Rita on May 22, which is also the day of my mom's surgery. St. Rita was Rosie's greatly loved patronness, and my parents' Augustinian parish prays a special novena to St. Rita every year, so we feel it's a little special mark of God's love that her feast was the date selected for surgery. 

We will be praying a novena to St. Rita, and would love it if you care to join us! If you want me to send you daily reminders, please let me know.

Holy Patroness of those in need, St. Rita, you were humble, pure and patient. Your pleadings with your divine Spouse are irresistible, so please obtain for me from our risen Jesus the request I make of you: for all Our Lady's intentions for Rose Grimm, especially, if it be God's will, an entirely successful surgery, an easy recovery, and her speedy and complete cure. Be kind to me for the greater glory of God, and I shall honor you and sing your praises forever. Glorious St. Rita, you miraculously participated in the sorrowful passion of our Lord Jesus Christ. Obtain for me now the grace to suffer with resignation the troubles of this life, and protect me in all my needs. Amen.

With love and thanks,

From Jean Smith,

As most of you have heard, my sister Carol passed away on September 6. She was initially admitted to St. John's in Oxnard with a diagnosis of pneumonia in mid-August. He neck was swelling and sores appeared on her chest. Her oncologist was on vacation and not much treatment was happening beyond antibiotics and extra oxygen, so after a week there my sister Beth began to advocate for her and to ask for further testing. Her specialist at City of Hope began to communicate directly with St. John's staff, and on September 1 she was moved...Read more
