Please pray for two of my aunts.
My Aunt Marie, who is 81, just found out she has breast cancer.
My Aunt Rita, who is 83, just had a stroke and isn't able to speak and has a hard time recognizing people.
Both ladies are spry and vibrant, at least Aunt Rita was until the stroke happened. Both are strong Catholics; Aunt Marie was the church organist for decades and Aunt Rita raised a brood of eight.
It was the Feast of St. Rita yesterday. She is one of the patron saints of impossible causes. St. Rita, please intercede with my petitions.
