The following is from Steve Dickmeyer, Dad of Carolyn (Dickmeyer) Reuter from the Bishop Chatard Class of 2004. Your prayers this Sunday are appreciated!
Please pardon my impersonal message, but I am sending this to many groups of people.
First off, thank you to everyone who has included us in your thoughts and prayers. We feel them and as a result we have experienced many small miracles that remind us that Jesus is walking with us on this rocky winding road. Here is a text message that Mary Ellen sent this morning:
“Sunday is Divine Mercy Sunday. When Carolyn was having Chemo the Divine Mercy picture came with us. After her surgery at MD Anderson Carolyn’s nurse in the overnight recovery room was wearing a Divine Mercy badge. We didn’t have the picture with us at the hospital so God provided. A little miracle. As a family we have been saying the Divine Mercy novena. Since Sunday is Divine Mercy Sunday we asking as many people as possible to pray the chaplet of Divine Mercy. Through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary Our Lady Of America we are asking for God’s Mercy in healing Carolyn. We don’t know what Gods plan is but we know it’s a perfect plan. We appreciate all of your prayers , rosaries, and masses. God bless all you and your families.”
Carolyn, Lance, Mary Ellen, and their 2 babies are still in Houston at MD Anderson for radiation treatment. Soon, Carolyn will have a biopsy from her lung to determine the findings of her CAT scan. We are praying that nothing has spread and are hoping to once again storm the heavens this Sunday, “Divine Mercy Sunday“, with as many people as possible praying the Chaplet of Divine Mercy from where ever you are and at any time.
We continue to pray for everyone’s intentions who have been praying and supporting us,
Continued blessings to you and yours,
Steve and Mary Ellen and Family
