Jadon has passed away…

Last month I put up a prayer request for 13 year-old Jadon, and Baby Michael David.

Jadon, who had leukemia, developed a systemic infection after two rounds of chemo, and was in severe crisis, with kidneys shutting down; his situation was very grave.

Happily, the newborn has pulled through, but last night I learned that Jadon — who fought manfully for six weeks, and even a few days ago was trying to respond to the people around him — has passed away.

Please pray for the repose of his soul, and for his parents thank your readers for their prayers for Jadon, and for his parents, Martha and Jason, little sister Elizabeth, his grandparents, family, friends, and for Reader Karen who has been keep us updated, and who lost her father a few days ago.

Eternal rest grant to them, O Lord, and let your perpetual light shine upon them. May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace, Amen. And may the angels lead them into paradise and bring consolation to those left behind.

    I recall praying for Jadon and his family and for whatever reason this song below from the past hits a high note with me right NOW. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ED5s1-Fe9FA

    God Bless all souls and especially for all of us flesh, blood and bone humans who are still waiting to celebrate Eternal Life with God and His Angels.

    My deepest sympathy to all family and friends.

    Out of the depths I call to you, LORD;
    Lord, hear my cry! May your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy.
    If you, LORD, mark our sins, Lord, who can stand?
    But with you is forgiveness and so you are revered.
    I wait with longing for the LORD, my soul waits for his word.
    My soul looks for the Lord more than sentinels for daybreak. More than sentinels for daybreak,
    let Israel look for the LORD, For with the LORD is kindness, with him is full redemption,
    And God will redeem Israel from all their sins.

    What a beautiful video and hymn—what does it mean?

    I am so sorry to hear this, but it was a long, hard struggle for Jadon and his family. I believe that the Lord’s Divine Mercy will surround and comfort Jadon’s family — and that Jadon is in a much better place now, at peace, whole, and beautiful in the arms of Jesus.

    I am so sorry to hear about Jadon, may he rest in peace!
    I love the Faure Requiem, brings back memories of college days when we sang it in concert.
    I can’t get through a funeral without getting tears when they sing “May the Angels Lead You to Paradise” whatever the musical setting. At that point, it really is “goodbye”.

    I said a little prayer for the repose of his soul.

  • Paul

    This recording is of “In Paradisum” from the Requiem Mass by Gabriel Faure. Many consider Faure’s to be the most beautiful setting of the Requiem and I can’t argue. This antiphon was sung after the final blessing as the deceased was being carried out of the church.

    The translation is, “May angels lead you into paradise; upon your arrival, may the martyrs receive you and lead you to the holy city of Jerusalem. May the ranks of angels receive you, and with Lazarus, the poor man, may you have eternal rest.”

  • James

    He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, wailing or pain, for the old order has passed away.” The one who sat on the throne
    said, “Behold, I make all things new.”

    -Revelation 21:4-5
