If you'd be so kind as to add prayers for my friend Jonathan and his wife, Whitney; they've just delivered their first child, Lydia Grace, via C-Section yesterday, and she (Lydia) is in ICU due to respiratory failure. Pray to the Lord, to St. John the Evangelist and Theologian (whose memory we on the New Calendar commemorate today), and St. Lydia for the deliverance of this family.

In other news, our good friends Daniel and Mary, who've recently lost their child James, are now grieving the loss of Daniel's mother, Susan, who reposed unexpectedly on Tuesday. Please pray for their family and for the repose of the soul of the handmaiden of God, Susan.

Lord, have mercy on us. Let our funeral lamentation be "Alleluia." Glory to God for all things.

Lord have mercy and save Lydia and grant her many years, and receive in Your Kingdom the little Innocent James and his Grandmother to be with him.

Christ is Risen!

David, prayers continue for the family of the newly departed James.  So sad about Daniel's mother - that must be a hard blow. 

And prayers for the child, Lydia Grace.

Lydia continues to have problems breathing on her own, at least while extuberated.  No gag reflex.  Parents are still hopeful, as possible brain damage (from a toxic situation in utero which infected Whitney, as well) could be temporary.

Prayers...

Lydia Grace fell asleep in the Lord last night, aged 2 weeks.  May her memory be eternal.
