Posted on 12/07/2017 10:59:43 AM PST by LYDIAONTARIO
My friend (Margaret) has been fighting cancer but has been told she has a few weeks left to live. She has not been a church goer for many years so does not feel comfortable calling a priest in. Please pray she finds peace, trusts in God's mercy, and receives the Sacraments and has a holy death. Thank you and God bless!
Prayers Up for Margaret.
The Holy Spirit understands and is at work.
Prayers sent for Margaret. May she know God is waiting and ready to receive her when she calls upon Him.May she have peace in knowing Jesus has beautiful ressurection for her one day.
I’m not a Catholic, but I’m pretty sure a priest would be pleased to visit.
Prayers for Margaret , her family and friends.
Sending prayers for Margaret.
....or that :)
You are right. A priest would be VERY pleased to visit. Nothing is better than (to use the biblical metaphor) a sheep returning to the fold just before dying.
I would call a priest although it is often hard to get one. If nothing else, I would encourage her to do a thorough Examination of Conscience and ask forgiveness from God.
If she hasn't read or seen the movie of HEAVEN IS FOR REAL by the Burpo kid's dad . . . it might be a helpful option.
O Almighty God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, we pray to You for Your servant Margaret, whose sickness is bringing her to the end of her earthly life. You are the God whose only-begotten Son taught us that not even the smallest sparrow can fall without Your knowledge, and that You hold all creation in Your merciful arms. Look upon Your servant Margaret and allow this illness to be for the death only of those things which are the result of evil and sin. Let her thoughts be quieted with the peace and confidence of her final deliverance into the fullness of Your love. Keep her soul and body pure, and sanctify them during the time she remains among us, that on the last day she may be raised up with all Your saints to live with You in never-ending glory. For to You belong praise and worship, to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.

Just trying to help...
Praying for Margaret.
It is ok, guys! I don’t think she is worried about arguing doctrinal differences at this point. It is ALL in the hands of Jesus and a priest does jot supercede Him. You could say that God doesn’t need Freeper prayers for her, but he Hears them and it pleases Him and loves when we join in prayer for a soul. And I still thank you !
does not feel comfortable calling a priest in
Then perhaps you, as her friend, should call a priest. Go to the nearest Catholic church, explain the matter, and a priest will follow you to her sick bed, no questions asked.
