My grandmother has been going slowly for the last few years, but it seems like she is fading out this week. Her veins give out too easily, so they can’t feed any blood or medicine directly into her body. She can’t eat or drink, and my father is quite literally freaking out (he’s been visiting her every day for the past four years). She is Greek Orthodox and has been a rather devout woman for most of her life (as was my grandfather). My dad on the other hand has fallen away from orthodox belief, and even resents religion (he sometimes resembles that hooligan Dawkins).
I’m praying for a revitalization of my father’s (Stavros’) faith and a peaceful death for my grandmother (Emilie). Please keep them both in your prayers, that God might use this time of tribulation and unrest for the betterment of our family (and the salvation of souls, namely, those of my grandmother and father).
St. Padre Pio, Ora Pro Nobis.
St. Joseph, Ora Pro Nobis.
Blessed Virgin Mary, Ora Pro Nobis.
Bless you all.
