    ...we all need prayer and help. I am no exception in suffering. But when someone close passes, my predisposition to depression kicks in big time. And so, first I kindly ask you to pray for a 90 year old friend of mine, Beverly, who just passed from injuries from a car accident. She was literally taking someone who has no car, home. This woman never stopped moving, constantly did for others, always volunteered at our church and was a great help to our family ...and was part of our family. She also was deeply devoted to God and the Blessed Sacrament. Secondly, I ask you to pray for my wife, son and me. In my depression, especially when something like this happens, I feel alone no matter what. It's as though all is black, with no end. And, I feel absolute terror over the thought of losing people I'm close to. This blackness terrifies me, ever since depression first hit me back in my teens, over 30 years ago. Meds don't work, and a DNA test showed I have no receptors for most meds to work (layman's terms). I don't work and so we struggle. I can't wait for The Lord to come. No need to post replies or advice. Please just offer a prayer for Beverly and us. I pray for each of you, and your loved ones, now. Thank you.

    Will most certainly pray for you Mark1 and all whom you love that the Good Lord will relive your sorrow. It's important to know that you are not alone! by virtue of our common baptism we are all bothers and sisters in Christ even though we have never met and many mile may lie between us. God's Blessing.

    Prayers going up. St. Joseph is the patron of a happy death. Pray for it, and for your loved ones. May the darkness dissipate in the light of God's holy love and consolation.
    To be absent in the body is to be present to the Lord. 2Corinthians 5:8

    This will be my main intention at Adoration today. Never forget, Mark, that the Lord holds you in the palm of His hand. You are never alone. As An Guiilbneach said, we are all brothers and sisters in Christ.

    I would say Beverly needs few prayers , Mark by the sound of it. But praying for her anyway.

    Praying for you and your family Mark. It sounds like you are a real Chosen Soul.:)

    ...I see so many replies, and so many prayers. Thank you, one and all. This friend's passing has triggered the terror , desperation and utter loneliness I feel when depression is at it's worst. It's like nothing can penetrate the hopeless, desolate feelings I experience, and that scares me. I go one second at a time. THANK YOU for prayers for Beverly, and my family in me. Again I pray for all of you

    I don't like thoughts of death (itself) either, but I imagine afterwards as being a joyous "Million Year Picnic" (Ray Bradbury)...actually endless aeons. It'll be so beautiful & blissful. :love:
