Hi. Today I came home from Mass, and read a note in my Mum’s handwriting. I’d only read a bit of it when my Mum took it off me. She said in it that she could find no way out of this “hell”. She’s a good person, and I asked her whether she’d taken this to God in prayer.
“No”, she said. I’m going to try to explain to her a bit about offering her suffering up for the good of the world and for the remission of sin (a good idea to touch on, as this is Lent). But I hear that people today want quick-fixes, and aren’t as prepared to wait and suffer patiently as they used to be.
She’s rather sick at the moment, so is perhaps more vulnerable to the family situation as a result. I’ll pray a rosary tonight for her, and have a few masses read for her.
Thanks for hearing this request and interceding for her.
