My Brothers & Sisters:
Please pray for DREW who has a Brain Tumor. I met her son after Mass the other day. He said he didn’t know precisely where this tumor was in her head, but that it was affecting her Motor Control. According to her son, Drew will want to do one thing, say turn left, and she’ll keep going forward because she won’t be able to do it.
Drew is still able to walk (sort of), & her son said he had been told that it was most probably benign (so was my acoustic neuroma - which could have killed me because of where it was located) but like any brain tumor, this is having a real impact on her life and can be potentially life-threatening. The most important thing with brain tumors may not be whether they are Benign or Malignant, but where exactly they are located in the brain…
As the church I saw Drew’s son at has plumbing problems galore, and Drew’s son is a plumber, I’ll probably see him again. When I see him again, I’ll get more details, along with a progress report…
Please pray for Drew’s physicians - That God may guide their hands and their decisions as they treat her, that their treatments may be effective, and that they may be aids to her healing and recovery. Please pray for Drew and her family; For Drew - That God may heal her to prove his glorious power and his steadfast love to a cynical generation & to a Catholic Church in need of a “Certain Trumpet”; and for her family - That God may comfort those whose faith have been wavering, that He may bring back those who have fallen away and that He may strengthen those who are close to Him with His presence.
Please pray that, in all of this, God’s glory, love and grace may be revealed to a sick and fallen humanity.
Your Brother & Servant in Christ, Michael
