Prayer Request

Last week I posted about a family emergency. My older brother has been diagnosed with terminal cancer, which has metastasized to the lungs. His prognosis is not good, and the doctor has told him he has a few weeks to a few months to live. His name is Joe.

I would like to request each one of you who reads this to pray a Chaplet of Divine Mercy for my brother. If you can, please pray it in front of the Blessed Sacrament. Thank you to all who offer to do this, and may God return the blessings.

May our Lord strengthen Joe for the journey, and open dear Joe's heart to welcome Him who made him for Himself, and may He as well support you and your family through this difficult time. Holy Mary, Mother of God, we beseach you, pray for us sinners, especially Joe, now and that the hour of our death. amen
