    My pastor invited Geralyn and myself to a private Holy Mass this morning. I prayed and lifted up everyone on MOG at the elevation of the chalice during the Consecration!

    Safe in the Refuge of the Immaculate Heart!

    Mother diagnosed with a bleeding ulcer. Polyps removed. She is - today - recuperating well (thanks to your prayers) and eating regular food. Might be discharged home tomorrow (Friday).

    My husband's cousin, Dennis, resides in Oregon. Owns a ranch. We seldom hear from Dennis; in fact, his two recent phone calls (Coronavirus worries) are the only since 1990s.

    Dennis is frightened in general.

    Please pray for Dennis. I have no idea how mentally strong a person he is; essentially a stranger.

    Susan (my sister).

    She is fortunately married to a man with a steady job / good income.

    She works part-time. Has learned today that a person on her night shift has COVID.

    Mother is elderly, currently hospitalized, will be released this weekend.

    Susan is her primary care-tender, and also her disabled son (he's bipolar with panic attacks).

    I am 1,300 miles away. Cannot go to help.

    She will not report back to work (self-quarantine).

    Regardless, she's now been exposed and will have to check in on/help Mom post-hospital.

    A prayer for Your entire Family DS7;

    Mary, Mother of Our Lord Jesus, Queen of the Holy Angels. Pray for us

    August Queen of the Heavens,

    Heavenly sovereign of the Angels,
    Thou who from the beginning received from God, the power and the mission to crush the head of Satan;

    Humbly we beseech Thee to send Thy holy Legions, so that under Thy command and through Thy power,
    They may pursue the demons everywhere, combat them, suppress their boldness, and drive them back into the abyss. Amen

    O Who is like unto God?

    Mary Thou shall always be our Queen, our Mother and our Hope!

    O Divine Mother, send Thy Holy Angels to defend me and drive far from me the cruel enemy.

    Holy Angels and Archangels, defend us, guard us and protect us. Amen.

    I've copied this to a file I have on my desktop titled, "Prayers and Novenas".

    It's getting big enough I should probably have an index/table of contents.

    While looking at the aforementioned file, I ran across this prayer that I'm feeling called to re-post to whoever needs it:

    Very powerful indulgence for the dying

    "The Apostolic Constitution on Indulgences, Indulgentiarum Doctrina, promulgated by Pope Paul VI in 1967, puts it this way:

    If one of the faithful in danger of death is unable to have a priest to administer the sacraments and to impart the apostolic blessing, “the Church, like a devoted mother, graciously grants such a person who is properly disposed a plenary indulgence to be gained at the hour of death. The one condition necessary in such a situation, then, is that the dying person should have desired this indulgence – and prayed for it! No doubt, this can be accomplished in many ways; but one of simplest and clearest ways would be to ponder prayerfully the words of the Apostolic Pardon itself".

    “Through the holy mysteries of our redemption, may Almighty God release you from all punishments in this life and in the life to come. May He open to you the gates of paradise and welcome you to everlasting joy.”

    Thank you for the prayers.

    An update: Susan went to her place of employment mid-afternoon today (scheduled shift).

    Supervisor on duty would neither confirm nor deny a positive case in a coworker.

    Susan asked, "Why not?" A result should be known by now.

    Susan again informed employer that she cannot risk further exposure, and immediately left.

    She is unsure if she will now be fired, or if they'll consider options (extended FMLA or use of Paid Time Off).

    !-- Susan said 0ther companies there are also refusing to divulge info. Employees are being deliberately left in the dark, employers are stringing them along of course to keep production going --!

    Just awful. :cry:
