Praise and thanksgiving... Almighty God, to our Blessed Mother, to St. Peregrine, St. Raphael and to my beloved St. Pio of Pietrelcina, and of course to all my prayer warriors.

Bret just got test results on a nodule in his chest that had recently increased in size, and the news is good. It is not cancerous. Because he was a smoker for many years (quit 15 years ago), they have to follow protocol and do a follow-up in 4 months, but his doctor was unconcerned.

I know I never posted about this, but some things are so close to one's heart as to be difficult to relate to others without figuratively opening a vein and bleeding profusely...

But I do wish to publicly acknowledge my gratitude to all those who prayed. The greatest fruit of these prayers from both the Church Militant and the Church Triumphant has been the enormous peace and lack of anxiety I have felt throughout the waiting period.

Thanks be to God!


  1. Thanks be to God, indeed!

    I was worried there for a moment that I had missed something that monumental.

    So grateful for your relief....

  2. Yes, thanks be to God! I do remember you mentioning in a post awhile back that Bret had a suspicious spot on his lung. He - well your whole family - has been in my thoughts and prayers since then. What a relief!

    I ought to tell you sometime about my visit from St. Pio of Pietrelcina. I think you'd appreciate it.

  3. Please do, O.W.! I would love to hear about it!
