Thank you for all of your prayers and continued donations . We are very grateful to everyone. Last week we had a very unexpected bill of $2,300 for Gemma's and Teresa's one month supply of medicine.(Gemma takes a very strong medicine for removing the excess iron built up in her body from receiving blood transfusions every 3 weeks and Teresa takes 4 different heart medicines everyday for her heart). Thank you !
Yesterday we took Teresa to Church for the first time. People were amazed at how well she looked . She seems to hold her own when she is in the air conditioning and sitting still , otherwise she tends to have a lot of trouble with her breathing and heart rate . We were on pins and needle this afternoon because she was trying to keep up with her sisters and she started to have a lot of trouble breathing. Life has become very stressful worrying about her . We know she is in GOD'S hands ultimately but it still is difficult watching her suffer so much to breath. We are trying not to keep her in a bubble and will feel a lot better (I hope ) in 2 weeks when she has her heart catheriztion. ( Aug. 18).
WE need a miracle for Teresa .
Pope John Paul 2 , needs one more miracle to forward his cause for canonization.
This is a prayer that was on the EWTN web site for him. ( Thank you Mrs. Warthen):
O Holy Trinity,
we thank you for having given to the Church
Pope John Paul II,
and for having made him shine with your fatherly tenderness,
the glory of the Cross of Christ and the splendor of the Spirit of love
He, trusting completely in your infinite mercy
and in the maternal intercession of Mary, has shown himself
in the likeness of Jesus the Good Shepherd
and has pointed out to us holiness
as the path to reach eternal communion with You.
Grant us, through his intercession,
according to your will, the grace that we implore,
in the hope that he will soon be numbered among your saints.
We love PJP2 and actually named our daughter Emilia after his Mother .(Emilia Kaczorowska) . Since we could not name her John or Paul , we thought what better way to honor him than through his Mother .
