This evening, I visited Lina Leong, the Ipoh girl who is suffering from terminal cancer at Tung Shin Hospital, K.L.
She looked better than I anticipated. She was on oxygen but able to talk freely although experiencing shortness of breath.
She was still undergoing chemotherapy. Her elder brother from Singapore was there on his weekend visit.
I pained to learn that doctor still sending her for chemotherapy. I can only pray.
Lord, today we celebrated the Feast of your Body and Blood. You promised us and Lina - "He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood, lives in me and I live in him". (John 6)
Lord, Lina has eaten your flesh and drunk your blood, you are in her and she is in you. Enfold her with you precious blood, give her strength through your flesh that she received through the minister of communion. In her difficult phase of life, grant her peace of mind, comfort and acceptance of human sufferings.
I pray fervently to you also, touch the hearts of all doctors who are treating her. May they not only follow medical ethics, by also humanly love, compassion, conscience and moral virtues. Drugs and treatments shall no longer necessary for healing her, but to reduce her sufferings and pains of her wrecked body. She needs palliative care, tender love of her family and friends, re-assuring words of doctors and medical staff, not bombardment of radiation and chemicals.
Lord, may her body be absolved into you precious body and blood, where you will take over her yoke of pains and sufferings. May she enjoys pain-free and peaceful days ahead until seeing you face to face in the full glory of our faith.
Lord Jesus , I also pray for Agatha Tan, grandmother of Fr. Lawrence Ng. She is 93 years old and suffering from life-threatening severe colon infection. May you have mercy on her.
And not forgetting Fr. Anthony Chan. He is fighting for his life in a corner of Kelang.
I offer all of them, and many other suffering people, into your life saving cup - the cup of convent, communion and life.
Lord have mercy. Amen!
我把他们，及其他受苦难的人，放入你的救赎之杯 - 盟约、共融及生命之杯。
