Mary came through her surgical procedure and is doing well in spite of the diagnosis of a chronic problem that is at the very least debilitating. I believe she is still with us because of the prayers of those who truly care about this great lady.
Mary will continue to need prayers as she tries to continue her Prayer and Rosary Ministry. Without your help with this, it will not be possible. I am asking that particularly during these 40 days that we keep Mary in our prayers that she may be able to pray for all the souls who need it just as desperately. Let us continue to beg favor with Our Lord that she have the health to continue to make the world’s most beautiful Rosaries and Faith Jewelry that give honor to Our most Blessed Mother.
Please consider joining her in her project “Paters for Peace” on FB. AS usual, my dearest sister always puts Our Lord first. I promise to keep all of you in my prayers daily (as I do now) in thanksgiving for your generosity in praying for her.
God love you,
Update from Mary!
Thanks so much for all the kind prayers and concern .. it’s truly very much appreciated. Although the biopsy for temporal arteritis was negative (as is over 60+%), it unfortunately doesn’t mean it’s POSITIVELY negative lol … It can also be giant cell ateritis, but I think they’re leaning more towards trigeminal neuralgia at this point. I think we’re just waiting for things to either go away or get worse while we pursue more diagnostic tests … I’m hoping the sed rate is normal next time they take blood :) Time will tell .. meanwhile, I feel like I have a gazillion hands all over my head and face, just about touching. Kind of how you’d feel after a slap in the face actually. Some intermittent pains here and there all over, but nothing we can’t handle, praise God. Trying to stagger the steroids, so no additional problems come about … good timing for trials though :) I’d also like to encourage folks to look into living the Divine Will and participating in the Hours of the Passion that can be found here: http://www.passioiesus.org/en/horasdelapasion/distribucion.htm
This devotion has been heaven sent as far as I’m concerned. The perspective and insight into the Passion is much greater than anything I’ve ever experienced and makes you never want to leave His Side. Praise be His Holy and magnificent Name! Again .. thanks so much for the prayer, kind thoughts and concern … to Sofia & Sean for posting and for all that have participated in storming heaven on my behalf … you all remain in my daily 3pm’s. Blessings!
