For an aunt who'll be presented with Catholicism and Scientology


#1

Hello, brothers and sisters. . .

May I ask prayer for an aunt? She’s grappling with a bad diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease, and it has made her severely depressed to need many meds for both the disease and depression. Poor lady, I can’t even imagine. :frowning:

But what I’m most concerned for is her spiritual welfare. You see, my Dad (a lukewarm Protestant) bought one of my custom Rosaries for her, to help give her some peace; he will give it to her on Monday. However, an uncle–my Dad’s younger brother–who’s a Scientologist (Tom Cruise-ish in his fervency, seriously) believes that he can help heal her with whatever “technologies” of Scientology. This uncle is flying up from Arizona tomorrow, and together he and my Dad will drive up to see my aunt.

Would you maybe say a prayer for her behalf? I can’t imagine the horrific, depressive lows she’s enduring–much less the physical hell of Parkinson’s–and I’m nervous for the three of them and their get-together on Monday.

God bless all of you; thank you. :heart:

Lord have mercy, Christ have mercy. . .

May she be kept away from the fruitcake and occultism of Scientology and find joy in the Lord Jesus Christ!. .

Ave Maria…

SANCTUS, Sanctus, Sanctus, Dominus Deus Sabaoth. Pleni sunt caeli et terra gloria tua. Hosanna in excelsis. Benedictus qui venit in nomine Domini. Hosanna in excelsis.

I often think how difficult it must be to live with ongoing degenerative illnesses, and ask Jesus to be profoundly watchful and kind to them, and to your aunt.
Jesus please protect her from false teachings and false ways and hopes. Help her to remain faithful to You. Please give her the understanding and courage she needs to live with the difficulties she endures. Please give her inner peace, and help her to use her illness in prayer for others, for the coming of Your kingdaom.
Thank You, Jesus
