My mom passed away today

My mom passed away today after an 8 month battle with lung cancer. The cancer had spread to her ribs and she was in so much pain. She was baptized in the Presbyterian church but hadn’t been to church in many years. I have prayed and prayed for her–the rosary, the Divine Mercy chaplet, to Padre Pio, to St. Peregrine–for her physical healing and for her eternal salvation. She passed away right before my dad got there with a pastor, who was going to pray with her. I was going to go visit her tonight and take a scapular and pray with her and talk to her, but I didn’t get the chance. The doctor said last night we had days to 2 weeks. I thought I had just one more day, but I didn’t. She passed away around 3:00 this afternoon, which I find comfort in, as that is the Divine Mercy hour. Please pray for the repose of her soul. Her name is Mona.

I am so sorry for your loss. I was where you are now, it will be 5 years on 12/26.
I will offer up the Chaplet of Divine Mercy tonight for your mom and you. They told me my mom had about three months, she died in two days. I will keep you in my prayers.

Please accept my prayers and condolences on the loss of your mom.

Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death.
Amen.

Veronica, I am so sorry.

I will pray for your mother’s soul.

And for you.

Very sorry to hear that. We will keep her in our prayers.

Sorry for your loss, Veronica97. :frowning:

:gopray:

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 who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.
Amen.

Glory Be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning is now ever shall be world without end
Amen.

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy, hear and answer me. Amen

O God, Whose way it is always to have mercy and to spare, we beseech Thee on behalf of the soul of Thy servant Veronica97’s Mother, whom Thou hast called out of this world: look upon her with pity and let her be conducted by the holy Angels to Paradise, his true country. Grant that he who believed in Thee and hoped in Thee may not be left to suffer the pains of the Purgatorial fire, but may be admitted to eternal joys, through Jesus Christ, Thy Son Our Lord, who with Thee and the Holy Ghost, liveth and reigneth world without end. Amen.

Our Father. Hail Mary. Glory Be.

Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord; And let perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace. Amen.

Our father who art in heaven
Hallowed be your name
Your kingdom come
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread

As we forgive those who trespass against us
Lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil
Amen.

Eternal God in whom mercy is endless
and Treasury of compassion inexhaustible
Look kindly upon us and increase your mercy in us
So that in difficult times we may not despair nor become despondent
But with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will
which is love and mercy in itself.

Eternal rest grant unto Mona, O Lord, and let Your perpetual light shine upon her. May her soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

I was in your position 3 years ago, and I thought I would go mental, the only thing that saved me going insane was being Catholic (am a Convert to like yourself) knowing I could get a Mass said any time I wanted , praying the Rosary, and asking Our Lady to look after my mum.helped me a little.

My heartfelt sorrow for your great loss, I often wish I could have her back, I loved her so much as a daughter. But unfortunately not, that is why we have to make the most of while we have them.

I will remember your mum in my prayers, and I will say one right now.

My deepest condolence to you once again.

** I’m so sorry. :hug1:
I hope it gives you comfort to know that
she is resting in the peace of God’s loving arms.

Holy Mother, please intercede for us.
Hold the sorrowful, strengthen the fearful,
give aid to all needing help or healing,
assist those who are sick, in pain or suffering,
be with those needing peace, console the lonely,
comfort the lost or hopeless, guard the unborn,
pray for those who are dying or who have died,
soften those with hardened hearts,
enlighten those who do not yet see truth,
help us be brave enough to let our hurt and anger go,
show us the way to do the right thing,
protect those who are in danger, and guide us from every evil;
may all who keep your sacred commemoration
experience the might of your assistance.
Amen **

I’m sorry for your loss.

Praying now for you and your mom :signofcross:

I am so sorry to hear that, honey. Praying for you, and for your Mom, Mona.

God our Father,
Your power brings us to birth,
Your providence guides our lives,
and by Your command we return to dust.

Lord, those who die still live in Your presence,
their lives change but do not end.
I pray in hope for my family,
relatives and friends,
and for all the dead known to You alone.

In company with Christ,
Who died and now lives,
may they rejoice in Your kingdom,
where all our tears are wiped away.
Unite us together again in one family,
to sing Your praise forever and ever.

Amen.

I am so sorry, may God and Mary be with you at this time. May St. Joseph likewise bring you peace.
