Lord Jesus, you came into the world to heal our infirmities and to endure our sufferings. You went about healing all and bringing comfort to those in pain and need. We come before you now in this time of illness asking that you may be the source of our strength in body, courage in spirit and patience in pain. May we join ourselves more closely to you on the cross and in your suffering that through them we may draw our patience and hope. Assist us and restore us to health so that united more closely to your family, the Church, we may give praise and honour to your name.


I still have not been to Mass

I have been really sick. I had major surgery then two major infections after. I laid in bed for days thinking I was dying. I did nothing. Now my hgb is bottomed out and I am tired and like a space zombie. I can barely keep my eyes open long enough to read let alone an hour for Mass. I did go to confession and spoke about this and was told it is not a sin. I am sick, if I chose to miss Mass it would be different.

But how I long to go to Mass. To be there and partake in the eucharist.

Please say a prayer for me that I get better soon so I can start going back to Mass. I miss it so much and my heart burns to go.
