I read this on Mundabor’s blog (see here) and am re-posting.
Please pray for this Catholic stalwart and paladin.
O Most Holy Virgin Mary, Queen of the most holy Rosary, you were pleased to appear to the children of Fatima and reveal a glorious message. We implore you, inspire in our hearts a fervent love for the recitation of the Rosary. By meditating on the mysteries of the redemption that are recalled therein may we obtain the graces and virtues that we ask, through the merits of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Redeemer.
John Vennari Scheduled for Surgery Saturday Morning
This is a note to tell my friends that I have to go into surgery on Saturday morning, November 26.
Cancer is a nasty beast, and it has caused an obstruction in the GI that must be addressed immediately. Immediately.
As noted already, my case has been serious from the start, and this latest problem came to a head at the same time I returned from three weeks of cancer treatment in Mexico.
I am presently not able to update my CFN webpage (I write this note from the hospital). I was blessed to receive the Sacrament of Extreme Unction this afternoon.
Please feel free to forward and/or post this, along with the link below that provides background and info for those who wish to share prayerful and financial support. http://www.oltyn.org/vennari.htm
Thank you for all your prayers and support up until now. Please pray and ask others to pray, especially communities of religious and convents of nuns.
Am I am a little afraid of surgery? Who wouldn’t be? But I place my trust in Our and Our Lady, and take heart from all the kindness and concern I’ve received. Your outpouring of love has been astounding.
I may not be able to update for a few days.
