This article is more or less a follow-up to the commentary that was posted on Saturday, November 25, 2017, the Feast of Saint Catherine of Alexandria. A republished reflection on today’s Feast of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal was published a few moments ago.
Today is being given over to the endoscopy/colonoscopy that was rescheduled from Friday, November 17, 2017, the Feast of Saint Gregory Thaumaturgus, to today because of the heart catheterization that I underwent on Thursday, November 16, 2017, the Feast of Saint Gertrude the Great. The CT-Scan of the abdomen and pelvis taken on Wednesday, November 15, 2017, the Feast of Saint Albert the Great, showed a few irregularities, some of which were called “suspicious” by the radiologist, and it confirmed that I did break a lumbar vertebra when I fell on July 18, 2017, the Feast of Saint Camillus de Lellis. Penance is the only path to Heaven.
Thus, my good readers, I may not have another article for you until Wednesday, November 29, 2017, the Vigil of Saint Andrew. I ask for your prayers today. Saint Philomena is on the job, I am sure.
Finally, we now have a rather expensive ornament in our driveway as our minivan’s broken transmission is unlikely to be repaired for some time. I would appreciate your prayers so that money can be raised to repair it as we still have over three years of payments left on the vehicle. Thank you.
Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, pray for us.
Saint Catherine Laboure, pray for us.
