Thank you very much. I truly appreciate anything you can do for us… God bless you all.

Adding your family to my rosary intentions.


#3

thanks.


#4

Poor Philomena - you and your family are definitely in my prayers.


#5

My heart goes out to you and your family. I will pray for them and for your brother immediately.


#6

i’ll be remembering your family and your brother at mass tommorrow.
You’re in my prayers.


#7

I’m so sorry to hear your sad news, MyPhilomeana. I want to enter his name onto a Carmelite Sisters’ prayer site. Could you tell us his name and age? And any other details you want to share?


#8

Joe. he is 52… and i love him with all my heart. his patron saint is Saint Joseph.
patron saint of the dying.


#9

thank you, but you don’t need to feel bad for me. i only need help for prayers for my brother.


#10

So sorry to hear that, your brother is in my prayers. My cousin also had liver cancer and received a transplant in August. She is recovering now, and her pronosis is good. It is not necessarily a death sentence.


#11

I will keep him in my prayers. St Peregrine is the Patron St of Cancer Sufferers.

That is great news . . . keeping in mind, however, that every one of us is under a death sentence, and there will be no final reprieve. It is largely a matter of perspective.

I hope your cousin and MyPhilomena’s brother both are granted length of (healthy) days.


#13

my brothers prognosis is poor because he already almost died from his liver before, and he has cirrohsis of the liver and now cancer, but your right, everything is possible.
