Hi everyone. New poster here not sure if this is right section to ask but here’s the story.
My Nonnas is dying right now and is in special care. She has cancer. Secondary in liver, they never found where the primary cancer is. A prayer for my nonna and my family would be greatly appreciated
I believe her favourite Saint is Saint Rita and that she prays to her.
My uncle today (Sydney time, just after 7pm as of this post) went to see her and not too long after he got back home, which is same home my Nonna had lived in around last 45 years, he noticed bees on her bed.
He rang my mum to ask about St Rita, my great aunty, my Nonnas sister, was with us when he rang and she told us about the bees that swarmed St Rita as a baby and didn’t harm her.
My uncle said that they then flew into bathroom which is next to the room and he grabbed them 1 by 1 with a tissue and they didn’t try to attack him (I’m not sure how many were there)
Now, the only explanation I can think of if it’s not a sign from St Rita, is maybe bees are attracted to urine because my Nonno who sleeps in that bed isn’t the best when it comes to urinating lately and there is now a stench in the room. The bees did then go to the bathroom after all. In saying this though, this stench has been there for a few weeks now and never a bee in sight. Infact I don’t think anyone has ever seen a bee in the house before, or extremely rare to see on in the around 45 years they have been at that house. Especially the bathroom. Would be hard for them, especially more than 1 to fly in when entering without anyone noticing. Windows are pretty much always closed, sometimes open but of course has fly screen.
Maybe I’m being too optimistic that it gives me a bit of comfort and they did sneak in, somehow smelling the stench from outside (though my Nonno now has a bad habbit of urinating in spots outside but never ever see bees there) but has anyone ever heard of stories of St Rita’s bees appearing to the dying?? Or similar like in this case, the bed my Nonna use to sleep in for so long before she went into care??
They weren’t white bees like I think is described about St Rita but still bees
Thanks guys. Honest opinions no matter if it makes me feel less comforting
