Please pray for my Grandma O'Brien. I just found out she had a stroke on Divine Mercy Sunday and is unable to swallow among other things. She is 96 years old. She's been a wonderful grandma, ever so generous and loving. I pray she has a peaceful death and doesn't have to spend any time in Purgatory.
She has been without food or water since Sunday. I think I am living in some kind of nightmare. How can this be? This beautiful grandmother who always, always, always delighted in taking us out for a meal and who loved chocolate lives on without anything. I can't wrap my brain around it. May this be her Purgatory. May the Angels comfort her. May Our Blessed Mother come to meet her soon. St. Joseph, patron of a happy death, aid her.
May angels lead you into paradise; upon your arrival, may the martyrs receive you and lead you to the holy city of Jerusalem. May the ranks of angels receive you, and with Lazarus, once a poor man, may you have eternal rest.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
