I received a note from a long-time reader and comment contributor, Supertradmum …
I have been in hospital again because one of my lungs with cancer is failing. This means that the fluid which builds up and was expelled every other day has not continued. If the respiratory team cannot correct this as the lung is too damaged I have days to weeks to live. I am on oxygen almost constantly.
Pray please for me to make a holy death. I have been too attached to this wonderful beautiful world including all you my wonderful friends. I have been blessed in my friends. I need your prayers. Please remember me. I love you all more than i can say.
She asks prayers as well for her son.
Dear readers, new and perennial, we are in this together.
Perhaps in your goodness you will offer prayers and mortifications for our struggling sister.
I will say Mass for her intention this afternoon at 1630 EDT.
Meanwhile, allow me to say…
GO TO CONFESSION.
