Wife's Update again !!


Recommended Posts

Just got off phone with Cancer Center and they said they have decided to stop treatment as she is just to weak to handle any more Chemo, and to let them know if Hospice is needed for her Pain. Right now all she want's to do is sleep and hopefully the end will be peacefull. Right now the Sun is Shining but seem's to be dull not bright. It is a terrible feeling when you feel hope slipping away but will try and keep the Teaching's of the Church in my heart and mind as they say she is going to a place beyond understanding and Happiness in the presense of GOD.I pray that when she goes that the Blessed Holy Mother is waiting there to greet her one Mother to another to introduce her to HER SON our lord. If you all do not hear from me for awhile do not worry as thing's here at home trump all and much will need to be done.......Larry

I think this was written for you.

Jesus,Lead the Way

Jesus, lead the way

Through our life's long day;

When at times the way is cheerless,

Help us follow, calm and fearless;

Guide us by Your hand

To the promised land.

Jesus, still lead on,

Till our rest be won;

If you lead us through rough places,

Grant us Your redeeming graces,

When our course is o'er,

Open heaven's door.

(N. von Zinzendorf)

Prayers for both.

Oh Larry...my heart is absolutely breakiing for you. Please call Hospice to help you. Even if your wife's pain is under control, you will find the help you can receive from Hospice will be so needed. I will be keeping both you and your wife in my thoughts and prayers. Please let me know if you need anything.

I found this for you. I don't know if you have heard of Sister Faustina, but we would recite the Devine Mercy Chaplet for my mother when she was dying. The information below was taken from Faustina's diary.


The Chaplet of The Divine Mercy

In 1935, Saint Faustina received a vision of an angel sent by God to chastise a certain city. She began to pray for mercy, but her prayers were powerless. Suddenly she saw the Holy Trinity and felt the power of Jesus' grace within her. At the same time, she found herself pleading with God for mercy with words she heard interiorly:

Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world; for the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world (Diary, 476).

As she continued saying this inspired prayer, the angel became helpless and could not carry out the deserved punishment (see Diary, 474, 475).

The next day, as she was entering the chapel, she again heard this interior voice, instructing her how to recite the prayer that our Lord later called "the Chaplet." From then on, she recited this form of prayer almost constantly, offering it especially for the dying.

In subsequent revelations, the Lord made it clear that the Chaplet was not just for her, but for the whole world. He also attached extraordinary promises to its recitation.

Encourage souls to say the Chaplet which I have given you (Diary, 1541). Whoever will recite it will receive great mercy at the hour of death (Diary, 687). When they say this chaplet in the presence of the dying, I will stand between My Father and the dying person, not as the just Judge but as the Merciful Savior (Diary, 1541). Priests will recommend it to sinners as their last hope of salvation. Even if there were a sinner most hardened, if he were to recite this chaplet only once, he would receive grace from My infinite mercy (Diary, 687). I desire to grant unimaginable graces to those souls who trust in My mercy (Diary, 687). Through the Chaplet you will obtain everything, if what you ask for is compatible with My will (Diary, 1731).

Prayed on ordinary rosary beads, the Chaplet of Divine Mercy is an intercessory prayer that extends the offering of the Eucharist, so it is especially appropriate to use it after having received Holy Communion at Holy Mass. It may be said at any time, but our Lord specifically told Saint Faustina to recite it during the nine days before the Feast of Mercy (the first Sunday after Easter). He then added: By this Novena, [of Chaplets] I will grant every possible grace to souls (Diary, 796).

It is likewise appropriate to pray the Chaplet during the "Hour of Great Mercy" three o'clock each afternoon (recalling the time of Christ's death on the cross). In His revelations to Saint Faustina, Our Lord asked for a special remembrance of His Passion at that hour.
