Please pray for my sister, Michelle.

I just heard today that Michelle had a heart attack last night.
She is in the hospital.
She is only 53 years old and a widow.
I heard from my brother that she has lost her faith and is out of the Sacraments.
Please pray for her, dear friends.

  1. Prayers. May she receive a priest before it’s too late.

    • And Cindy, as you may be predisposed, too, I hope you take plenty of vitamin C.

      • Before my strokes, I’ve never been sick in my life.
        I heard about Vit. D3 so am taking 2000 a day, but didn’t know about Vit. C.

        • Cindy,

          Sorry to hear about your strokes. Vitamin C is essential to strengthening arteries as well as reducing plaque. Read and search on “stroke” to see some studies. The page has info on the heart. You’re right to start supplementing vitamins. Also, get away from processed foods, and the AMA / FDA -recommended diet.

        • Cindy,
          Being that I am of Italian descent, I and my family have always adhered to the Mediterranean diet. So far so good. Perhaps give it a try if you haven’t so far.

          • My favorite part of visiting Italy was either seeing all the churches in Rome, or eating the good food. We trads can appreciate that traditional diets which sustained healthy societies for centuries are better than the modern convenience food. A person who studied traditional diets around the world was Weston Price. A website I like with info on him is (NB Weston Price’ers are Steinerians, e.g., Waldorf school and worse. However, Wojtyla was a Steinerian, according to Abbe de Nantes — so enjoy!)

            • Yes Cyprian, the best things for the health of the soul and of the body are traditional Catholicism and the Mediterranean diet.
              It’s worked for we Italians (and other adherents of the traditional diet) for two-thousand years.
              Let’s hope and pray that when the creature currently occupying the Chair of Peter is not in power anymore (one way or the other) we Catholics will get a REAL Italian like a Cardinal Siri disciple like Cardinal Bagnasco or Piacenza to lead the Barque of Peter. Or, for that matter ANY somewhat “traditional” Cardinal to occupy the Chair of Peter.

  2. Prayers for your sister’s recovery and for her to receive the Sacraments.

  3. Dearest Cindy,
    I will pray for your sister at Holy Mass today, and will say the prayer of the Green Scapular everyday, for the conversion of her soul.

    “Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us, now and at the hour of our death. Amen”

  4. Michelle was in the Sacraments and went to SSPX for years.
    I pray this put a good scare into her and she receives a Priest, and when/if recovered will return to the Sacraments.

  5. Thank you Catherine.
    I will get one of the family to place a scapular (brown and green) around her.
    Thank you for praying the conversion prayer.

  6. Cyprian and St. Francis, thank you both for all this information.
    I will be sure to read up on all this….there is a lot to read, ha.

  7. See, I live in a different Province from most of my family.
    I just learned now that it was NOT a heart attack.
    She is now at home!
    Thank you SOOO much for your prayers and also for your good advise.
    God bless you all.

  8. A Rosary for Michelle. And I’ll add her to my Green Scapular petitions.

    I don’t know about the Mediterranean diet, but being half Italian, I can recommend loading up on garlic. I like to slip mine into my homemade pasta fazool. It’s supposed to be a great way to bring down your cholesterol naturally. (and drive away vampires!:))

  9. zuzu, thank you so much for the Rosary intentions and for the conversion prayers for my sister.

    I’ve got to remember that garlic trick too.
    Good way to bring down blood pressure also.
    Right……(and drive away those horrible vampires.)

  10. Cindy, Michelle is in our family rosaries tonight.

  11. Aww, thank you so much dear friends.
    Being my sister, her health/body is important to me, but her soul is infinitely more so.
    Thank you for praying for her conversion.
    May Our Good Lord reward you all.

  12. SUB tuum praesidium confugimus, Sancta Dei Genetrix. Nostras deprecationes ne despicias in necessitatibus, sed a periculis cunctis libera nos semper, Virgo gloriosa et benedicta. Amen.

    WE fly to thy patronage, O holy Mother of God; despise not our petitions in our necessities, but deliver us always from all dangers, O glorious and blessed Virgin. Amen.
