A Difficult Holy Week

I’d ask for your prayers at this point of the week.  It has been very hectic and stressful here with all sorts of extra things happening at the parish (funerals, et cetera) in addition to the regular chaos of Holy Week.

Add to that my aunt’s continued failing health (she was admitted into hospice care February 2018 and is still hanging on, which is a distress to her) and, now, my sister-in-law.  I just heard this afternoon that she has been admitted to hospice and has, probably, a couple of days left.

After I practice with our RCIA class for the Vigil Mass of Easter, I am going to jump in my car and drive over to Portage, IN so that I can anoint her.  Kindly keep all involved — my aunt, my sister-in-law, my brother, and their families — in your prayers, please.
