Prayers needed

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.

My late mother's name was Rita too. I remembered her yesterday.
