A warm request for your prayers

Out of your charity please pray for "B", who is struggling with cancer and great pain.

I believe "B" sees this blog, as do others who know her.

If you post something here, for her, I think it would be seen.

    Dear B,
    You may perhaps be in solitude, but you are not alone. This very night, an Eastern Orthodox priest whom you do not know, has stepped behind the veil of the iconostasis, has drawn near to the altar of God, has kissed it, and has prayed there for you. Take heart, for His Heart is enveloping you.
    peace and good, Fr. Joseph

  8. “A Prayer for B” O LORD, grant that your servant, “B”, be spared from suffering, in the measure that such indulgence is consonant with her salvation. Keep her strong and true in her trial, and bless her with healing according to Your will. Preserve Your servant, “B” in the sincere hope that she, and all flesh, shall rise again, and that the Just shall never die the second death, but live forever, seeing God, as He is, for ever and ever. I promise to offer this prayer this morning before the Blessed Sacrament.
