our lady, the lord's virgin and mother
we turn in all our needs to christ's blessed mother, because we
know that our lord, as her loving and obedient son, can refuse her
nothing. hence, we turn with confidence to our blessed lady as
'comforter of the afflicted', 'the help of christians', health of the sick',
and 'virgin most powerful'.
our virgin mother stands by us as she stood faithfully at the foot of
the cross, as she remained praying with his apostles and disciples.
so, too, when we turn her our necessities. amen
UPDATE....spoke to tom yesterday....he says thank you to each of you for your rosaries & prayers.
currently, he spends his time going back & forth to doctors for infusions, physical therapy (to keep his circulation going), takes lots of meds (over 20 a day. he sleeps a lot. his 'meld score' (the score used to determine liver function) keeeps going up & down. he is not running round the block...
he has seen his new grandson, james thomas, and that has put a definite smile on his face. last week the both of them fell asleep on the sofa...it is such a sight to see.
please remember him in your prayers....as it is only going to get worse before better.
god bless you, prayer warriors....
