I'm back -- need big prayers



Went to psychlogical hospital for one week.

Met with neurosurgeon, neurologist while there and had an EMG.

I had it really good but panicked.

Should have stayed.

Came home today cause felt I needto go to Philly to see more spine doctors.

Was wrong.

I was not honest with psych docs as to how bad depression is cause I felt I needed to go to Philly.

Discharged – wish I wasback in hospital SOOO BAD.

Want to tell psych. truth tomorrow. Afraid hewill be angry.

Need to beback in psych hospital.

PLEASE pray I find the courage.

And PLEASE pray i findadoctor to do discectomy on my back.

I am SOOOOO sick and weak and getting number and more rigid.
LEGS are BAD!!! need surgery now!!!



Vito Joseph, please don’t despair; I will say a Rosary for you this evening.

But, tell your doctor everything.:gopray2: :hug3:



You wil be in my prayers.
May St. Dymphna intercede for your healing.

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible, look kindly upon us, and increase Your mercy in us, so that in difficult moments we might not despair, nor become despondent, but with great confidence, submit ourselves to Your Holy Will, which is Love and Mercy itself. Amen



Prayers sent!


Dear VitoJoseph,

While I’m glad to see you, I wish you were doing better, friend. You want big prayers, you’ve got 'em. I specially remember you when I visit the Adoration Chapel.

Our Father, who art in Heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come,
thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those that trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

… More prayers on the way, too.

Merciful Lord, look with immense compassion upon our brother Vito Joseph. Grant him the relief from back pain that he seeks, so that his life may have increased dignity. Send a doctor who has the technical knowledge and requisite skill to properly perform the discectomy that will reduce his pain. Grant that his psychological doctors welcome him in his honesty and genuinely seek to alleviate his depression. Lord, simply relieving his back pain will work wonders for him. Graciously relieve his pain and watch as his depression subsides. Surround him with prayer and send Your Angel to assist and protect him at all times. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, One God for ever and ever. Amen! Alleluia!


VitoJoseph, we all feel so much for you. Please God be merciful to him

Hail Mary Full of Grace
The Lord is with Thee
Blessed art thou among woman

Holy Mary mother of God
