Christ is Risen!!

Our daughter, Rachel, is coming up on her due date to give birth to a little girl. Yesterday she had a scare at the doctor's office. Her blood pressure was off the charts and she had to go to the hospital. It came down within about an hour so we are relieved, but are still apprehensive. She is scheduled to deliver on May 23.

She is, as we all are, in the Lord's Gracious Hands.

St. Nekatarios, icon of the Divine Physician, intercede for Rachel.

Bob

My humble prayers for your daughter Rachel. I pray that all will go well and that there will be no complications.

Lord have mercy!

May the Holy Unmercenaries and Sts. Constantine and Helena (on whose Feast this blessed event may occur) intercede for Rachel, her daughter awaiting birth, and their family!

Prayers for Rachel and the baby girl, that the delivery be safe, and that Rachel and her baby be healthy.
