Thanks everyone for your prayers! I have not heard an update yet on her dad's status. I know she will not be flying out to see him until next week so hopefully he will hang on until then, should his condition be that bad. Unfortunately, my friend's father is not Catholic, but he is a Christian, though I am not sure how involved with his faith he has been. My friend was a Catholic convert but no longer practicing and to be honest, from what I can tell, holds a lot of grudges towards her father. I have tried to talk to her, in a very non-chalant way, about not holding grudges, letting go of past hurt, etc. I'm not sure how well my words are working. However, let us continue to pray for her father and that at the very least these two can make ammends with each other.
