Pray for Mary Byrne
I have just come back from the hospital, after Anointing and given the Apostolic Indulgence to Mary one of our parishioners.
Mary is both deaf and dumb, she is dying and I am not quite sure is able to see much, or focus at the moment. She has her carer with her, who is a lovely women but it must be a terribly confusing time.
Pray for her and invoke the Holy Guardian Angels to pray for her and comfort her.
I was told this morning Mary died a few hours after being fortified by the Sacraments of Our holy Mother the Church.
Eternal grant to her O Lord
And let perpetual light shine upon her.
May her Soul and the Souls of all the Faithful Departed rest in peace.
