Please pray for my brother Steve (cancer)

  • Some of you probably know him.  He was an SSPX seminarian at Winona STAS for 4+ years.  He ran afoul of SSPX leadership because he accused one Father Carlos Urrutigoity of being a Modernist.  So he was transferred to St. Mary's from STAS, and ended up not getting along there, and left.  I feel that he would have made a fine priest; he was much more mild-mannered than I am.

    In any case, Steve will be 47 in two weeks, and he's been diagnosed with Lymphoma.  He's been in the hospital and is starting chemo today.  They're not certain yet of what type and stage it is (short of doing some more tests), or what the final prognosis is.  Steve is taking it well and has calmly stated that he accepts whatever God plans for him.

    So, especially if you knew Steve, I'm sure he would appreciate a few extra prayers.

  • That's a terrible blow.  We will pray for your brother this afternoon.  

    My children sometimes get miraculous results to their prayers:

    Two weeks ago, my mother found a lump under her arm.  

    As she already has lung cancer, we all thought it was spreading:

    Near the surface, the size of a pea, and hard.  

    She did an immediate Skype exam with her doctor, who broke into tears and told my mom to get right down to the hospital for MRI/CT/Xrays.  

    But when she got into the examination room, neither she, nor the doctors could find the lump which all had seen a couple hours before.

    All the MRI's/Xrays/CT's revealed nothing (this is only 2 weeks ago), and we are all saying to ourselves, "Hmmm...."

    A couple years prior, my wife's uncle was diagnosed with bladder cancer, told it was going to have to be removed, and he was going to have to use a side bag for emptying.

    The kids prayed for him, and at his followup, there is no sign of any cancer at all.  The Xrays/MRI's look like they are from two different people.

    I believe the prayer of children, devout and simple, grabs Our Lord and Our Lady's ear.

    In any case, you have our prayers, and I hope your brother will be OK.

    Romans 5:20 "But where sin increased, grace abounded all the more."

    -I retract any and all statements I have made that are incongruent with the True Faith, and apologize for ever having made them-

  • I thank you all for your prayers, and Steve thanks you also.  I'll remember you all in my prayers also.

    God bless you.

    Thank you, Sean.  Yes, I do believe that the prayers of children are more pleasing to God due to their simplicity.

    I hope that he will be OK too, but the most important thing is how we enter the next life.  For those of us who have the faith, death is just going home to God.  This life is so short that 10 years and 150 years will seem like the same thing from the perspective of eternity, basically nothing.  And I know that this is Steve's attitude also.  This life here is an exile, a valley of tears.

  • L,

    We haven’t prayed our family rosary yet, so we’ll offer it for him tonight.
    For what doth it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his own soul? Or what exchange shall a man give for his soul?

    Will pray a Memorare for him today and everyday all next week as well as include him in the daily rosary.

    "In His wisdom," says St. Gregory, "almighty God preferred rather to bring good out of evil than never allow evil to occur."
