From an email sent to my parish concerning a parihioner's relative several states away:

"We were given nearly three months of misdiagnosed, ignorant bliss. We are so thankful for that time. However, today we are faced with the reality of a stage IV breast cancer diagnosis."

She just had a baby at the end of the summer, and is the mother of 4 young children. This is the same family from whom Samantha died last summer of brain cancer, if you recall.

Please pray for Crystal (handmaiden of God, Phoebe) and all of us during this time.

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on Your servant, Crystal. Heal her from all her physical illnesses. Grant her health and salvation.

Wonderful news in this email update sent around my parish this morning:

Quote
"On the ninth day of Christmas my oncologist gave to me....

An UPDATE: In short, the prayers of the faithful and the treatments I'm receiving are working! All glory to God!

The longer version: The lesions on my spine are healed. The mets in my lungs aren't cancer. The lesions on my skull are gone. My brain scan is clear. The masses in my breasts are shrinking. The abnormal lymph nodes are now normal. And, my oncologist just cleared me to go snowboarding. (watch out world!)

This journey is far from over, but God is so good!
To Him be the glory!


"O give thanks unto the Lord for He is good, Alleluia!"
