UPDATE: Thank you for your continued prayers!!
Again, forgive me for not thanking each one of you individually. We've been with Uncle every day since we received the call last Tuesday, the 18th and I'm exhausted.
The strangest thing happened today. Mom and I were alone in Uncle's room and I wanted to pray continuous Chaplets of Divine Mercy. Mom stepped out so I arose from the couch and stood by Uncle's bedside so he could hear better. I suddenly blurted out 'Tio, reza conmigo.' 'Uncle, pray with me.' It just came out. I slowed my pace a bit and quite literally within seconds, his breathing synced up with my prayer. It was really amazing. His eyes were also focused on me whereas in previous days they looked lifeless. He can see and hear us, just cannot speak. I felt he was honestly praying with me, as much as he could.
For a few days, I keep thinking how Uncle is soon going to have a face to face with Christ. Of course, we have a F2F with Him every time we receive the Eucharist or worship Him in the Blessed Sacrament, but this will be different and I am excited for Tio in this respect.
