Prayer request

A reader writes:

Hello everyone.
I apologize for posting off-topic but I need some help. My father Thomas Buckley has been hospitalized with what is either a large tissue infection, or an aggressive lung cancer. I’ve never spoken with a better group of people than on this blog, and any prayers on his and my mother’s behalf would be greatly appreciated. Thank you to all.

Merciful Lord, visit us in our time of need and affliction; and as you healed Jairus’ daughter and raised her from her bed of infirmity, visit your servant, Master, and deliver him from sickness and pain. For you alone have born the sickness and affliction of our world and with you nothing is impossible. For you are all-merciful and to you we ascribe glory and adoration forever. Amen

    St. Luke the Beloved Physician and Blessed Mary Our Mother, pray for him through the mercy of Christ Our Lord. Amen.

    I would like to thank you all for your prayers. It appears that my father is beyond the hope of doctors, but God has not only given my mother unbelievable strength, he has brought my dad comfort and peace in the promise of being with him soon. We are grateful for this, and for whatever time we may have left.
