A dear friend of mine has developed a rare form of cancer, which for someone at her age (29) is almost unheard of. Her name is Lauren and she is especially close to the Blessed Mother; she also has relic of St. Padre Pio which has helped her in the past. Would you please ask your readers to pray? Her surgery is on Wednesday.
Father, heal your daughter Lauren swiftly and completely through Christ our Lord. Grant her caregivers wisdom, skill and compassion. Give her and all who love her grace, peace, and strength. Mother Mary and St. Pio, pray for her!
