Prayer request for our choral director Sr. V's cancer


#1

Our choral director, Sr. V, has recently been diagnosed with cancer that has metastasized to her liver.

Though she’s listed in the bulletin only as the Director of Music, she does so much more for the parish. She bakes desserts for our Fish Frys, keeps the parish council members on track, reminds everyone of the need for reverence in the church itself, makes sure that the intentions of each Mass are in the celebrating priest’s notes, and cooks breakfast for our two (rather elderly) priests almost every day. It was her example and guidance that finally brought me back to the Church after many years.

Sister, may Holy Mary, Saint Michael the Archangel, and all the saints pray for you as you face this battle.

I will pray for Sr. V.

Prayer to Saint Peregrine

Dear Apostle of Emilia and member of the Order of Mary, you spread the Good News by your word and by your life witnessed to its truth. In union with Jesus crucified, you endured excruciating sufferings so patiently as to be healed miraculously of cancer in the leg. If it is agreeable to God, obtain relief and cure for Sr. V and keep us all from the dread cancer of sin. Amen. 

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.

Earlier this week, Sr. V. departed this world as her family were at her bedside singing “Amazing Grace”. Her requiem mass was today, and I can only hope that she was proud of us and our efforts.

Requiescat in pace, Sister. May all the choirs of angels, the communion of saints, The Blessed Virgin Mary, and Our Lord welcome you home with open arms.

We’ll miss you.


#11

May God continue to comfort the family and friends at this difficult time. May her loving memory be reflected in the continued voices raised for her. God Bless.


#12

Eternal rest grant to her, O Lord, and let the perpetual light shine upon her.

Our Father in Heaven
Holy be Your Name
Your Kingdom come
Your Will be done
On earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our sins
As we forgive those who sin against us
Do not bring us to the test
But deliver us from evil.
Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace!
The Lord is with you
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 and ever shall be
World without end.
Amen.

Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord,
And let perpetual light shine upon her.

May she rest in peace.
Amen.

May the souls of the faithfully departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
Amen.

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.

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

Saint Peregrine, holy patron against cancer, please pray for the healing of Sister V’s cancer. Amen.

Saint Raphael the Archangel, holy patron of healers and healing, please pray for Sister V’s healing. Amen.

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.

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