I received word that my dear Aunt Patricia, my mother's sister and the last surviving sibling of her family, has had a very bad stroke and is entering hospice. Please pray for her, her family, a good death if it be God's will that it be her time, and His Will over all.
It can be said of Aunt Pat that she has been always kind to me from early childhood up, and to my husband and my children. Always. Unfailingly kind, unselfish and thoughful. How many people can anyone say that of?
O Blessed Joseph,
you gave your last breath in the loving embrace of Jesus and Mary.
When the seal of death shall close my life (Thy handmaid Patricia's life)
come with Jesus and Mary to aid me/her.
Obtain for me this solace for that hour - to die with their holy arms around me/her.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I commend my soul (and the soul of Thy handmaid Patricia) living and dying, into your sacred arms.
