A dear, dear friend of mine, Sr. Rose Pacatte (affectionately dubbed “The Movie Nun” for her movie reviews on the Hallmark Channel and other printed sites, announced today that her sister has been diagnosed with stage 4 Thyroid Cancer, and will have radiation March 1 and 2.
I have laughed at their Facebook goings on as they helped their sister and family during her recuperation, like Emilie (the one mentioned above) washed her sister’s cell phone and glasses; and how Rose made out like a bandit “it was as if the dryer had become a slot machine!!” with all the coins it produced. Clearly these lovely ladies also nuns had not done family laundry! But the cat was saved.
She is asking for prayers, as we all do. You, my FTD family should know that their entire order has been praying for us. To learn about them follow this link: http://www.daughtersofstpaul.com/Founders/MotherTheclaMerlo/tabid/115/Default.aspx
But the link I wanted to share from that site is this one. You don’t even have to be Christian, just believe in something greater than yourself to appreciate this moment of peace:
