Dear Servites,

Jonathan Phillips, OSSM from Cincinnati, Ohio is requesting prayers for himself, his mother-in-law and family. As he writes:

"I was diagnosed with prostate cancer last summer and haven't asked my Servite family for prayer! I'm doing so now. Prognosis is good. Don't need another biopsy for now. Also, my mother-in-law has stage 4 lung cancer, however, her infusions seem to be working. Extra prayer would be appreciated as my family has been a bit rattled by all of this."

May the Lord hear our prayers.  May our Mother of Sorrows and St. Peregrine intercede on behalf of Jonathan, his mother-in-law and their family.

"Me diagnosticaron cáncer de próstata el verano pasado y no he pedido oración a mi familia Servita!; pero ahora lo estoy haciendo. El pronóstico es bueno. No necesito otra biopsia por ahora. Tambien mi Suegra tiene cáncer en el pulmón, en la etapa 4, sin embargo, sus infusiones parecen estar funcionando. Oración adicional sería apreciada ya que mi familia esta bien preocupada por todo esto. "

He'll ultimately need a full heart transplant by 10. He'll also have some immune deficiencies due to missing spleen that will require limited environment and long term preventative treatment. There are learning/developmental delays associated with his conditions as well."

May the Lord hear our prayers. May our Sorrowful Mother and St. Juliana intercede on behalf of this precious child and his family. Please let Steven and Glenda know of your prayers: sjoerger@gmail.com.

"Él tiene una cardiopatía congénita y otras preocupaciones. Él va a ir directamente a la UCI cardiología, después del nacimiento y requerirá cirugías a corazón abierto a una semana, otra a 4 meses y otra a los 2 años. Él en última instancia, a los 10 años va a necesitar un trasplante de corazón. También tendrá algunas deficiencias inmunológicas, que requerirá ambiente limitado y el tratamiento preventivo a largo plazo. Tendrá muchos retrasos en su desarrollo asociados con sus condiciones."

Que el Señor escuche nuestras oraciones. Que nuestra Madre Dolorosa y Santa Juliana intercedan por este precioso niño y su familia. Por favor, dejen saber a Steven y Glenda que estamos orando por ellos. sjoerger@gmail.com.

Dear Servites,

I received a prayer request by Karen Pietrusinski, OSSM a member of the Secular Order Anunciata Community in Chicago who writes:

My sister, Lyn Karboviak, learned today that her cancer has returned and is now in stage 4. She will be operated on soon and will have chemotherapy treatment indefinitely.

May the Lord hear our prayers for Lyn. May Our Mother of Sorrows and St. Peregrine intercede for her and her family at this most difficult time. Please send messages of support to Karen, her sister at kmpietrusinski@gmail.com.
