Don't get me wrong---I am not saint. I want my Mom to be healed. I long for her to be healed, and I continue to beg for her to be healed. But what can we do? God, in His mercy, has answered our prayers and His answer, at least for now, is no. I pray that it is no, not now......but soon. But who knows? His plan is greater than we can imagine, and suffering can be powerfully redemptive. So while we are disappointed, we know that He has our best interest at heart, and He would not permit this suffering if He did not intend to bring a greater good out of it.
Sooo.....Thank you, Bl. John Paul. I am sure your prayers and ours are bringing about conversions of heart and healing in so many more ways than we can imagine. And thank you to all who have read about my Mom and prayed for her. We are blessed by your prayers and generous spirits.
