  1. St. Gerard [Majella], who like the Saviour loved children so tenderly and who by your prayers freed many from disease and even death, listen to us who are pleading for this sick boy. We thank God for the great gift of this child and ask Him to restore Benedict to health if such be His holy will. This favour, we beg of you through your love for all children and mothers. Amen.

  2. Prayers, indeed. Very sorry to learn of this but little fellers are tough customers!

  3. Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy clemency hear and answer me. Amen.

  4. Angel of God, his guardian dear,
    To whom God’s love entrusts him here.
    Ever this day be at his side,
    To light and guard,
    To rule and guide.
    Amen.

  5. Update on my boy

    My boy is doing better but he’s far from out of the woods. Still not entirely himself.

    We’re going to be in hospital for some time. Meningitis has been ruled out, Deo gratias. But there is something potentially more serious. We will know more tomorrow. I thank you so much for your prayers. Please, in your charity, continue them.

  6. Rosaries for sweet Benedict and prayers for the family.

    Lord please make Benedict well.
    Our Lady hug him soo tight.
    Saint Joseph and Saint Benedict protect him always!

  8. Another Update on My Boy Benedict

    First of all, thank all of you SO MUCH for the enormous outpouring of prayers, Masses, meals, offers of assistance, and many other forms of kindness. We have been overwhelmed by all the love that has been shown. Truly this is what defines the sublime, often misunderstood word, Catholic.

    My boy is doing quite well at present. When I walked into the ER yesterday after his seizure he did not know who I was. He has regained probably 90% of his mental faculties but still has a little way to go. He’s up and about though, has no more headache, ate a ton…..he’s feeling pretty good at present.

    Having said that he has been diagnosed with a brain tumor. It is still being characterized but signs to date indicate it is most likely not malignant. He has probably had it for some time, possibly even since birth. It is also likely the cause for his problems with reading, even though he is an ace at math, science, and religion.

    At any rate another night in the hospital with introduction of anti- seizure meds. Surgery is not thought necessary at this point. The tumor will be monitored and decisions on surgical intervention made based on how he does and whether it starts to grow or otherwise changes behavior. It is possible surgery may never be required, but the probability is that it will someday but hopefully not for years. Till then we’ll just have to trust in God and take it day by day.

    Thank you so much for your prayers! I know you will keep them up, and please do! This is going to be a long effort. Only God’s Grace will sustain us through it, and your prayers are a huge part of that. Thank God that my boy survived a bad seizure and is steadily improving. Every day, even every hour, is such a blessing. Racing to the hospital 30 miles away Monday morning……..well, I’m sure you can imagine my thoughts. I have seen so much suffering at the only Level 1 trauma center for children serving a population of 12 million that I know both how blessed I am and how tenuous life is.

    I’m happy I could share these updates with my online family. May God bless and reward you all for your kindness.

    My blessing, my boy:

  9. O Lord, be merciful to your people whose hearts bleed for this little boy and his parents. Heal him if it be Thy Will and not our will but Thine be done. To You be Honor and Glory now and forever, Amen.

  10. Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy clemency hear and answer me. Amen.
    God bless and heal Benedict!

  13. My Son Is Home and Doing Well

    Miraculously well, in fact. He appears perfectly normal now. Such a miracle. We have a very long road to travel but at this point it is smooth and happy. May God be pleased to allow it to remain so.

    Not much to update from my last one, Benedict has a tumor, it will be characterized and understood and checked for changes, but if nothing negative occurs no dramatic intervention will be undertaken. For now just a whole bunch of tests and doctor’s visits and regular monitoring. He experienced no problems at all with his anti-seizure meds, so Deo Gratias for that. There have been no seizures since Monday.

    We did have a scare shortly after coming home. He ate some nuts, to which he has developed a really severe allergy, apparently, and he had severe stomach cramps and vomited. Of course, we couldn’t know for certain at the time whether this sickness was due to the tumor, medication, or what he had eaten. Turns out to have been the latter.

    Since then, he’s been golden. He had a great weekend playing with friends and siblings. Doctors say he can be fully normal, no kid gloves required. His feet, over which so many doctors and nurses remarked because they were so calloused, scarred, and dirty (something they don’t see so much anymore), went right back to being black. IOW, normal for a 7 year old boy.

    In short, he’s doing great, it’s a miracle, and your prayers and support have been more appreciated than I can possibly convey. Please keep praying for my little buddy, as I know you will, this is not a situation that is likely to resolve itself quickly. Right now we’re just trying to really enjoy every moment. We’ve had some very good times the past few days.

  14. Great news. Very glad to hear the li’l guy’s doing well.

    Watch, a decade and a half from now, he’ll be an NFL draft pick. Kids are tough!
