The little boy so many people have been praying so hard for is breathing his last. He has had increasing difficulty with his breathing over the last couple of days, and I think he is finally ready to let go of his tiny, cancer-riddled body and fly into the arms of Jesus. God knows, his suffering these last two months or so has been enough to send him, or just about anyone, straight to Heaven. The children and I gathered at the news of his decline for a Chaplet of Divine Mercy.
Be at peace, little Cole. Go to God.
