A childhood friend’s Mother had brain surgery today; the surgery took hours. Cancer.
Another childhood friend and classmate also has brain cancer – for the second time – his wife is expecting their fourth child. The surgery did not get all of the tumour.
A dear friend’s father has surgery within the next hours – cancer again.
And there are others having tests as well.
The sermon this past Sunday was about joy in suffering as a work of the Holy Spirit.
Lord have mercy; Holy Theotokos save us. St. Nectarios please pray for us.
