    You’re in my prayers at mass each and every day Luke, by name. Please know you’re in our hearts and prayers.

    My disability hearing went very well today. Thanks for your prayers. Of the half dozen disability judges I could have been assigned, this judge is a good practicing faithful Byzantine Catholic who was very interested in my current living arrangements at the religious community in Massachusetts. Judging by both what was said and what was not said in the course of the hearing, I have every reason to be confident of a positive outcome, but I won’t know for another 1-3 months yet. (In March it will be three years since my strokes.)

    Thank you all for the continued prayers.
    The situation is pretty much the same as a couple of weeks ago. Slowly losing weight and the cancer growing rapidly.The hump sticking out my front is very noticeable now.
    The medications are working very well at keeping me functional.
    Something is likely to change for the worse any day now, but I just dont know when. It could be tomorrow or in a few weeks.
    I want you all to know I am very happy with the way the last few weeks have gone. I feel very well prepared.

    I have been praying daily for all forum members, I know you all have your own crosses to carry.
    Encouraging news on the 'hearing' Brian. (y)

    Luke, God's graces are evident in your attitude and acceptance of your situation. You are an inspiration!
    Thank you for the prayers. They are much appreciated.
    Of course, you remain in my prayers as well.

    Luke - be reassured that when God calls you it is to your true home for all eternity. When you are there in heaven you can intercede for us all and you will know how each of us here on the forum struggles daily to increase in virtue and holiness in preparation for our departure from this mortal coil. In the Church triumphant you will see the reality more clearly and we sure would appreciate your prayers and intercession from beyond the veil.

    Your resignation to the Divine will is an inspiration so be reassured of our prayers now and on your departure to that place God has prepared for you. I will also continue to pray for your family and of course your friends at this time too.

    You are in our collective thoughts and prayers daily Luke. I know you have people all over the world praying for you and your family. I think that in and of itself shows what kind of a man you are. May Our Lord and Our Lady watch over you all every minute.

    Still praying for your healing Luke through the power of scripture

    But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, And by His scourging we are healed.

    Same here, Luke. When the Eucharist is lifted up, I offer you up for a miraculous healing.

    The Cross

    The everlasting God has in His wisdom, foreseen from all eternity the cross that He now presents to you as a gift from His inmost heart.
    This cross He now sends you,

    He has considered with His all-knowing eyes,

    Understood with His Divine mind,

    Tested with His Wise justice,

    Warmed with Loving arms and

    Weighed with His own hands

    To see that it be not one inch too large and not one ounce too heavy for you.

    He has blessed it with His holy Name, anointed it with His consolation,

    Taken one last glance at you and your courage, and sent it to you from heaven.

    A special greeting from God to you, an alms from the all-merciful love of God.

    St Francis De Sales

    Luke thank you for keeping us in your loop. It is wonderful to hear from you. Thank you SO much for your prayers. We surely needed them. Also I loved your video on Our Lady of Perpetual Succor. My mother had a great devotion to her under that title. I know she has you tucked under her mantle. I am keeping you in my prayers every day in my prayers and your family too. God bless you Luke.
