health is wealth…

Standard

and i thought i have all the right to get stressed, angry and depressed for being unemployed until I saw my dear friend, erinn at stanford hospital this afternoon; she’s been in icu for almost a month now for a heart transplant and her kidney is failing on her and now she is getting dialysis twice in 24 hours! 

it breaks my heart to see her so terrified and helpless and it also breaks my heart to see her mom trying so hard to be strong for her and yet quietly, tears are rolling down her cheeks… i just can’t imagine her heartbreak as a mother…

it completely changed my perspective in life…

i love erinn so very much – she is such a dear, dear friend… my heart, my thoughts, my prayers go to her…  she requested to pray a novena for her and  her kidney…  and I offer her this novena to Saint Jude…

st. jude

Prayer for physical healing.

St. Jude, you witnessed the healing power of our Lord Jesus. You saw his compassion for the sick and dying. You yourself touched the sick, shared the sorrows of the mournful, and encouraged the despairing. You received this authority and healing power to work wonders, to cure the incurable, to make people whole. We ask you to intercede with our brother, Jesus, to send his saving grace to heal the sickness and suffering of ERINN HOUSE , to uplift her despondent spirits, and to instill hope in her hearts. Amen.”

St. Jude, through prayer you praised God for the wonderful works of Jesus. You asked God for the strength to meet the challenges of your apostolate. You put your trust in God’s mercy, believing firmly that God loved you and understood your joys and sorrows, your hopes and fears, and your triumphs and failures. You understood that nothing is impossible for God. I ask you to pray for me for my family now before the Most High so that I too might be filled with God’s saving power, understand God’s will for me and faithfully place myself in God’s loving hands.”

“St. Jude, you remained faithful to our Lord, even unto death. You gave your life so that others might live. You endured physical pain and emotional abandonment. But you gladly joined your sufferings to those of our Savior, Jesus, and thus shared in the redemption of the world. I ask you now to intercede with our brother, Jesus Christ on my behalf, so that i too can find strength in the face of my suffering. Help me to trust in God and put my life in his hands.”
