“Thank you all so much for your prayers and for all of the wonderful support you have given us. Unfortunately, we have received more hard news and need your prayers even more. At the follow-up appointment with our neurosurgeon, we were told that the tumor is worse than originally thought and that I have brain cancer that will need further treatment.
I will be starting radiation and chemotherapy at MD Anderson in July, and the treatment will last between 6-12 months. At this time, there is no cure for this cancer and the statistics of reoccurrence are unfavorable. But nobody knows what the future holds. For all of us, each day is a gift and our Lord is able to do all things.
There is much hope in the research and advancements that are being done at MD Anderson. The goal is to cure cancer. While this calling is critically important and life changing, literally life saving, it isn’t our ultimate hope.
This world is not our home. Suffering exists here because we are made for heaven. We are all broken in some way. Our hope is in Jesus.
I’m so grateful for my life with Kaleb. I want to be here for my girls. I want to watch them grow. I want to teach them to know Jesus and to know their identity of being a beloved daughter of God. I want them to know their worth, the inherent worth of each person and the deep and unwavering love of Jesus. But above all, I want to do God’s will.
Thank you for all of our family, friends, community members and doctors. I know I am not alone. Above all, I want to be a saint. Our mother Mary loves us and intercedes for us. She takes our prayers to her son, Jesus, who loves us so much.
If you know of any blessed saints that are waiting on a miracle for canonization, we would love to know about them and have them intercede on our behalf.
Please pray for our family as we travel the path laid before us. We will fight, we will hope and we will trust in Jesus.
I love each of you.”

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY to all parents, priests, and especially to the successor of St. Peter, Pope Francis! Let’s keep him in our prayers. 🙏❤️🕊🇻🇦
O God, shepherd and ruler of all the faithful,
look favorably on your servant Francis,
whom you have set at the head of your Church as her shepherd;
Grant, we pray, that by word and example
he may be of service to those over whom he presides
so that, together with the flock entrusted to his care,
he may come to everlasting life.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the
unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

“What really matters in life is that we are loved by Christ and that we love Him in return. In comparison to the love of Jesus, everything else is secondary. And, without the love of Jesus, everything is useless.” -St. John Paul II

“New Evangelization is the work of the whole Church — lay, ordained, and consecrated. It’s about friends, family, and co-workers reaching out to one another and proclaiming the truth of Christ using all available means — conversation, personal witness, media, and the vast array of intellectual and spiritual riches the Church has built up in her two-thousand-year history. It’s about simple acts of kindness, simple challenges issued in love, and simple questions asked with sincerity. More fundamentally, the New Evangelization is more for the baptized than the unbaptized. It’s for those who’ve been inadequately catechized but all too adequately secularized, and it’s for those who’ve been de-Christianized in the very process of being sacramentalized.” -Dr. Scott Hahn, Evangelizing Catholics: A Mission Manual for the New Evangelization

O most holy Heart of Jesus, fountain of every blessing,
I adore you, I love you and will a lively sorrow for my sins.
I offer you this poor heart of mine.
Make me humble, patient, pure, and wholly obedient to your will.
Grant, good Jesus, that I may live in you and for you.
Protect me in the midst of danger; comfort me in my afflictions;
give me health of body, assistance in my temporal needs,
your blessings on all that I do, and the grace of a holy death.
Within your heart I place my every care.
In every need let me come to you with humble trust saying,
Heart of Jesus, help me.

St. Longinus is the centurion who pierced the side of Our Lord while He was hanging on the Cross. St. Longinus, who was nearly blind, was healed when some of the blood and water from Jesus fell into his eyes. It was then he exclaimed “Indeed, this was the Son of God!” [Mark 15:39]. St. Longinus then converted, Left the army, took instruction from the apostles and became a monk in Cappadocia. There he was arrested for his faith, his teeth forced out and tongue cut off. However, St. Longinus miraculously continued to speak clearly and managed to destroy several idols in the presence of the governor. The governor, who was made blind by the demons that came from the idols, had his sight restored when St. Longinus was being beheaded, because his blood came in contact with the governors’ eyes. St. Longinus’ relics are now in the church of St Augustine, in Rome. His Lance is contained in one of the four pillars over the altar in the Basilica of St Peter’s in Rome.
St. Longinus, pray for us!
