Praying for Paul Likoudis

Paul Likoudis writes in a Memo To The Wanderer Family

With all my heart I want to thank the many Wanderer readers who have supported me with their Masses and prayers through what has been a very challenging time, and is likely to become more challenging.

The July 16 surgery was not a success, and complications required a two-week hospital stay, which has left me extremely exhausted. My surgeon discovered that the rectal tumor is inoperable, and that the cancer has spread to the pelvic wall. On August 13, I began another round of chemotherapy, which will run through the middle or end of December. After that, I will have another MRI to determine to what extent the chemo has worked, and if the cancer has spread to other organs.

I am still praying for a miracle, but also learning that my life is entirely in God’s hands.

A Surprise Phone Call

On the day after the surgery, just moments after I was moved from recovery into my room in the cancer ward at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, N.Y., my cell phone rang.
“Is this Paul Likoudis?” asked the voice at the other end of the line.
“Speaking,” I answered.
“This is Cardinal George.”
“Your Eminence, what a surprise and a blessing,” I responded, shocked and in total disbelief.

Read the rest here.

Please keep Paul, a local long time defender of orthodoxy and contributor to the Wanderer, and his family in your prayers as he continues his battle against cancer. Paul is the son of James Likoudis, another local long time defender of orthodoxy.

    How about some Spiritual Bouquets for Paul?

    I think emmagray’s suggestion for Spiritual Bouquets is very fitting -and his contact address is listed in the article in its entirety in the Wanderer when clicking on here (in yellow) link.
    An Excellent Idea!
