New post My father to have surgery on 7/25/12
I am asking for prayers for my father who will have surgery at 10:30 AM. Firstly for his conversion and secondly for his recovery.

Thank you all for the prayers!

He is doing well and he is home now. He does not need chemo. and he thanked me for sprinkling holy water on him and asked me to do it every day! He was also proud to show me that he was still wearing the green and brown scapulars that I gave him!

Dear Friends,

We now found out a few weeks ago that my father has squamous cell carcinoma on his head and it has metastasized to his neck. This was found out after his successful colorectal surgery three months ago. In any event, he has decided to undergo radiation treatment. The treatment is working somewhat but he is in a lot of pain and it breaks my heart to see him like this. Please pray to our Lord that he does not suffer too much. However, if it brings him closer to heaven then so be it. God's will be done.

NOW, here is the good news, the last two visits that A priest friend of ours made to our house I tried unsuccessfully to have my father meet him. Each time something came up that put a stop to my good intentions. A few weeks ago was different. I introduced Father to my father at around 10:20 AM and left them alone at 10:30 and by 11:05 my father told me he made his confession! My father told me he believes that the last time he had absolution was on the battle field in WWII around 70 years ago! God bless you all and thank you for your prayers!

Lance, that is just so wonderful! Please give him my regards, and tell him we're still praying for him.

PS That's a bad habit your dad has - only receiving the sacrament of penance when he's clearly facing death. :)

In your kindness if you could say a prayer for Father David Hewko who is the wonderful priest that helped my father.
