Rose Grimm update
My mom will have her first round of post-operation chemo tomorrow. Although this is the right time, we are uneasy about how this will hit her since she has not fully recovered from the surgery, and is very low energy. Please pray for the chemo to be both effective and gentle, and for her overall recovery. She is so grateful for your prayers, which have sustained her (and us) at this tough time!
I also must ask you for prayer for my beloved mother-in-law Betty Zepeda. As some of you know, in recent weeks she also was diagnosed with cancer, and had a large tumor removed last week. She is now recovering from the surgery and waiting to hear if she will need to have chemo. It would be a great mercy if she didn't. She is a very tough lady, but she is in her late 80s! Of your charity, please remember her healing in your prayers as well.
Thank you so much for your kindness and support. You are a true blessing to our family.
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 and Betty, especially, if it be God's will, speedy and complete healing. 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.
Blessed Solanus Casey, pray for us.
Blessed John Henry Newman, pray for us.
I've been asked to add Kathleen Faith Rainey to the prayer line. Kathleen is suffering from a serious auto-immune disease and has asked to be remembered in prayer. Pray for courage and strength at this most difficult time.Read more
Dear fellow prayer line members - Once again I am asking if you would please pray for my younger brother, Charles Bruley, of Torrance, CA. He is undergoing surgery on Monday, July 9, to repair a previous lower back surgery that was not successful. Many of you may remember I asked you to pray for him 2 years ago when a hip replacement surgery had to be completely re-done, not once, but twice! Please pray he will have a speedy and full recovery with this operation. Thank you all so much, Charlene BrannanRead more
