John preping for a promo video in Chicago next week... the paralytic and St Maria Goretti
Yes, John is going to Chicago next week to make a promotional video which will, hopefully, help spread the word of his prayer ministry and speaking/motivational speaker. Since his cancer battle 8 years ago, and his finding Faith through his facing death, and now the new John longs to share his story.... Finding faith through brain cancer.
Anointed in Rochester just before his brain biopsy leaving him with ataxia and a diagnosis of lymphoma of the brain.
So powerful to share with Hallel her taking her habit and changing her name just after John's second chemo and deciding that we could go in just 24 hours! Truly on the wings of the Holy Spirit!
Lifted up on prayer and found tremendous peace as he fought the battle of his life and is now the new John!
Humbled and barely able to walk on his own... we made it to France for Hallel's taking of her habit!
Lord, John is motivated above all else to share his healing and how you have healed him through The Church/sacraments, The Saints, Our Lady of heaven and earth, Soon- to be Blessed Solanus Casey, hundreds of prayer warriors all over the world, and bringing him to the brink of death... May the door open for him to give and give without counting the cost and touching many with your Truth and LOVE! Jesus, we trust in you. Bless-bless, Barb
Seminary for a year... "Why am I still here? Does he want me to be a priest?" That seems to be a "no." at this point. Each day we continue to ask the Lord to reveal his plan for John.
John's family coming together around him was so important to him... being the youngest with the 4 older sisters, who kind of spoiled him. It meant so much for them to all be there for him, and Susan even came back from France, where she was a postulant in The Community of the Lamb! That peaceful smile is as he rests in the heart of his family!
So true and beautiful for us!
She was only 11 years old!
My special Saint - pope for the first 27 years of our marriage and my champion for life! How we both love Our Mother of heaven and earth and The Rosary is our prayer!
Today he wrote this about St Maria Goretti - "Maria's life encourages us to experience the joy of the poor, who know how to renounce everything, provided they do not lose the one thing necessary: the friendship of God." She lost her life, and found everlasting LIFE!
