My prayers first & foremost are for all who ask for help through Our Lady & St. Joseph. Past few years have suffered much–In May 2008, MS diagnosis & within two months, Catholic boyfriend’s death due to MRSA (contracted in finding he had bone cancer) all while dealing w/mother with dementia & health issues.
In past two years, have had back problems, thyroid surgery (cancer & severe reaction to radioactive iodine)–a few months after this had serious back surgery + fusion; a year later (Sept 2011), hysterectomy due to cancer cells present. Mother finally placed in home & having problems financially (to keep her there). No family/siblings to help emotionally, physically or financially. On top of all this, my job of almost 29 years is in jeopardy (State Govt) — I live in a distressed area, no where to transfer.
I pray St. Joseph can intercede that Our Father through his Son can send me the help I so desperately need (home also in need of repairs). I face each day lonely (esp. missing my late-boyfriend so often); confused on what to do; frightened of financial burden.
