No sum dignus thank you for this beautiful testament to faith in God's perfect will. I will continue to pray for you and your wife and ask for healing but I know what you mean. We are given the grace for each trial we endure if we ask. I learned this lesson when my son died. Mary is waiting at the foot of the Cross to be with us and sustain us. She literally carried me through it. No pain is wasted if we bring it to the Cross so she can give it to her Son. Unimaginable grace flows from being with her in her "fiat". I happen to believe the Pope is mistaken in his words about the Mother of Jesus.
