For Rebecca who is being deployed

Rebecca is my friend Kristy’s daughter, a young navy, who is being deployed unaccompanied to Cuba. She has a 3 month-old first born and a husband that she wishes to be with during this mission. She was told that only E4 rankers are granted these requests, and unless there are openings in this level, an E3 ranker such as her, can assume the assignment unaccompanied. Kristy’s family belongs to a non-Catholic sect, but, asks our help in praying with Rebecca, for our Lord’s divine intervention, for only He supersedes even the tough military decision makers of the world. AMEN.

For my dear sister

My dear sister just called me to tell me the doctors just discovered a significant fibroid mass in her abdomen. The doctors have scheduled her for more tests and as you can imagine, she is very worried about it. She hasn't told a soul except me. And she asked that I include her in my prayers. I pray to God to please make this only a benign mass. I ask all of you to help pray for my sister's good health. Thanks to all.
