    More prayers for my brother Tim, please. He has medical coverage, but now his memory loss is such that he poses as a danger to himself and others. Rather than going through the courts I'm going to request his doctor claim he is incapable of completing normal daily activities so I can take him to an emergency room. Assignment to a nursing home is more plausible from a hospital than through the courts. Please pray for Tim, but most importantly for his salvation!

    You're a great bunch of intercessors.

    St. Camillus, pray for Tim!

    I have just seen this prayer request.
    Be assured Mario that I will pray for Tim.
    May God Bless Tim now.

    You know, being a nurse over many years, I have seen many people, both young and old in this suffering and I have often wondered about where God has these souls, as they seem to descend into what we consider a place of bewilderment, and we look on and percieve that they have lost knowledge of God and of all things because they seem to lose knowledge of their life and their circumstances!

    But the Lord has shown me that this is contary to what is really happening! God is in fact taking them into a desert where they have a great opportunity to contemplate only His being as all else is removed; it is a suffering and it is precarious. God allows them the knowledge of truth, but keeps them in a place where they are unable to coherently react to His truth but now desperately want to! this is an agony for them but this place is also a place of great expiration of sins, like purgatory, and we are called to pray for them!

    I believe Tim will be strengthened by your love and your prayers and in return his suffering will then help others.

    God Bless you Mario and your family

    Yes Padraig. I too must write things down. Usually when a request comes in I try to pray right then and add it to my daily Rosary. Or adoration if I can do it that day but I am getting older now and memory falters a notebook is a necessity.

    Praying Mario. There is a Bishop who is heading for sainthood pray to him. His name is Bishop Agustine Roman. He helped me with both my husband and son. Having the MOG family is also a miracle.

    Wonderful idea, Padraig. Sometimes it is not the request itself that I forget, but the promise I make in response.

    I often forget my specific promises so I end every rosary asking that everyone I promised to pray for is remembered. I guess it's an aging thing, lol.

    I knew a very Holy Priest who used to do this, very impressive:)

    Well I have only bought it. But what I am doing at the moment is writing down the name of anyone I promise prayers to and the specific intention. It is a very small little book and easy to carry. I intend bringing it to mass and reading each one .

    What I found was that I was forgetting very quickly, but reading these stirs the heart to pray better. I always prayed for those I promised but often in a general sense. I think being specific is more true to the promise. A promise is a promise. I think I was being a little slack about this. I also intend to bring the notebook out at specific times, but am still getting organised.:)

    If it does nothing else it will ease my conscience a little.

    I have not heard anything. If he did recover it would be a huge miracle as he has been in a coma for a year now. I think the longer you are under the less likely you are to come out. I suspect if he had awoken the whole city would have heard. :)

    But yes I still believe in miracles.
