URGENT PRAYER REQUEST: “I have Stage Four cancer…pray to Carlo Acutis!”

From a long-time commentator here and a blogist:

I have Stage Four cancer in the chest wall muscle and a tumor on the artery under the skull. I am considering all options.

I am asking all my friends to pray to Carlo Acutis for a complete cure. He needs a miracle.

Okay, everyone, she asked you to pray specifically to Carlo Acutis to intercede.  Storm Carlo Acutis.   We are not talking about “Jesus, Mary Joseph and all the saints and all the angels, especially [followed by a litany of your favorites].”

Get to work for our friend.

    If you go to the website to which Fr. Z links, there is a set of tabs at the top and one of them (labelled “Prayers”) takes you to page on which you can submit a prayer request.

    Prayers to Carlo Acutis. I am sad to hear of one of our community’s friends being ill. We are all headed in the same direction in our human condition but hopefully, not yet. God bless you and comfort you. Many hugs.

    My father-in-law lived till 89, about fifteen years after being diagnosed with prostate cancer. My sister had a breast tumor which went away by the time of her scheduled operation for removing it. What did they have in common? They both drank the herbal tea Essiac, which JFK’s personal physician Dr. Charles Brusch claimed to successfully administer in his clinic as a cure for cancer. May God be with you.

    I’ve prayed to Carlo for you!
