I'm continuing to pray for Rod Dreher's sister, Ruthie Leming, who was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer. Rod wrote recently about her here.
One of the things I've been trying to do this Lent is do a better job with my daily rosary. In the recent past I've had trouble remembering to say it every day, and have sometimes said only a few decades late at night before falling asleep. So I really wanted to re-focus on this form of prayer, which has meant a lot to me and helped me spiritually in more ways than I can number.
I've started to offer my rosary for Ruthie and for her family, and it occurred to me that it might be a good idea to make a formal commitment out of it. So, I'm going to continue to pray the rosary daily for Ruthie for the rest of this Lent, for her healing from this cancer if that is God's will, and for peace and strength for Ruthie and for her whole family.
Having decided to do that, it occurred to me that it would be really nice if a few other fellow Catholics might join me. If you can pray a daily rosary, or even a decade of the rosary daily for this intention, will you please say so in the comment box? I'd like to make this a "spiritual bouquet" of sorts, and let Rod know that some of us have signed on to pray.
Thanks, and God bless!
