Request for Prayers for an ailing dad

From my good friend and fellow Pinoy Catholic Jay Balza of Veritatem Facientes in Caritate blog

Dear Friends,

First of all, I would like to express my sincere thanks for all your prayers and masses for my previous intentions.
I am writing once again to request your prayers -- this time for my dad (Wilfredo Balza Sr). A few years ago, he was was diagnosed with cirrhosis in the liver. While his health has somewhat improved since then, this past few weeks has been more difficult for him. A recent visit to his doctor confirmed that his liver has further deteriorated and the doctor thinks he would probably last up to only 6 months. We are planning to bring him to the Philippines where he wants to spend his remaining days, but with his current condition (he no longer can walk, has difficulty breathing and always need to accompanied by my mother), we are not sure he can make it.
He has couple more medical tests this week that will help further determine his liver condition. In the meantime,
Please remember him in your prayers and masses. 

God bless,

Dear Mother, sorry to bother you again...Please hear our prayers for Mr. Wilfredo Balza Sr.  We believe that your Son hears and answers your prayers, just like how He performed His first miracle at Cana, all through your intercession.  Inspired by this confidence, I beg of your love and mercy.  Deign to hear our supplications if it be in the Will of the Father.  Fiat voluntas tua!  Amen.

MEMORARE, O piissima Virgo Maria, non esse auditum a saeculo, quemquam ad tua currentem praesidia, tua implorantem auxilia, tua petentem suffragia, esse derelictum.
Ego tali animatus confidentia, ad te, Virgo Virginum, Mater, curro, ad te venio, coram te gemens peccator assisto. Noli, Mater Verbi, verba mea despicere; sed audi propitia et exaudi.
Ave Maria, gratia plena. Dominus tecum.  Benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Jesus.  Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, ora pro eo et nobis peccatoribus.  Nunc et in hora mortis nostrae.  Amen.


To my dear TPC readers, please comment so that Jay and his family and all those requesting prayers from us, like Miguel Madarang for his mom, Mama Belle, may know that we are praying for them.

God bless you all! Thank you very much.
