My sister will be undergoing significant surgery re: breast cancer on Oct. 1, the feast of St. Therese. Thanks to this reminder and series of posts from Jessica at Shower of Roses (where else?!), I've joined in praying St. Therese's novena.
We all have deep and important concerns, of course, and I firmly believe (and know from experience!) that the saints are ready and willing to help us through their powerful intercession. (My sister pointed out to Step 2 -- whom she sponsored for Confirmation last spring, and whose patron saint is...St. Therese! -- that Therese's own mother was a victim of breast cancer. I'm sure there could be no saint more willing to help my sister through this.)
I'm counting on the help of St. Therese in the comfort and healing of my sister. Won't you join me?
Of course, any and all prayers will be most appreciated. I know I can count on you, too.
