Please pray for my family and my brother. He got alcohol poisoning last night while drinking with his friend at my parents’ house. My mom was out helping an elderly couple she helps every night, and my dad was sound asleep. My mom came home and found them vomitting and knew what was happening right away (she’s a nurse). I guess my brother almost died - he was having seizures on the way to the hospital. He’s in the ICU now and is okay, but had a close call.
My mom said she was talking to him while he was intoxicated last night and he said he feels there is darkness all around him and that he feels connected to no one. He’s been going to therapy with a wonderful Catholic therapist for several months now because he claimed he was bi-sexual. My mom asked him if he was gay and he said no, that he knew now that it was a decision. He told my mom that this therapist explained more to him about the Theology of the Body and he now grasps it. He said he feels he has a calling to the priesthood, but is scared which is one of the reasons why he’s been turning completely away. He told her he knows of the drug dealers in our area and has given cocaine to his friends, although not taken any himself.
I feel like the devil is just attacking him full force. Please pray for him, his recovery, and that he changes his ways. This has been really hard on my parents because he is so stubborn and even though has been rebellious to a point, he only just started getting into this bad stuff. Thanks so much!
