I pray 我祈祷

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 peac
eful 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 you
r life saving cup - the cup of convent, communion and life.

Lord have mercy. Amen!



今天的傍晚,我到吉隆坡同善探望丽娜,那位患了癌症的怡保女孩。

看起来,她比我想象中还好。她需要氧气供应呼吸,但可以谈吐自如,不过有时会觉得气喘。

她住在新加坡的哥哥也刚好在那儿陪她。她哥哥定居在新加坡,他是在周末上来探望丽娜。

当我听到医生还是继续给她作化疗后,心中是非常的痛。但我不能做什么,只能默默的祈祷:

主耶稣,我们今天欢庆了你的圣体和圣血的大日子。你曾经说过:“。。谁吃我的肉,并喝我的血,便住在我内,我也住在他内。。” (若6)。

丽娜吃了你的肉,喝了你的血,你在她内,她在你内。

用你的宝血覆盖她,藉着她领了的圣体,给她力量。在她这痛苦的生命阶段,赐她平安,舒适和接受人的肉体必须的病痛的事实。

我也恳切的向你祈求,触动那些医治丽娜医生们的心,让他们不只遵守医生规则,但也奉行人性的关爱,怜悯,良心和道德操守。药物和疗程不再是医治丽娜的病为目标,而是减轻她那饱受病魔蹂躏的身体痛苦。她现在需要的是安宁护理,是家人及朋友的关怀和爱抚,是医生及医护人员的安慰和鼓励,不是继续的用辐射及药物来摧残她懦弱的身体。

主,愿你把她的身体,融入你的圣体和圣血,接过她痛苦之轭。祈望你让她往后的日子,没有痛苦喝折磨,只有平安,直到抵达你台前,在信德的完满光荣中,与你面对面相见。

主耶稣,我也为黄大华的祖母,亚加大陈听女士 (93岁)祈祷。她被诊断是大肠发炎及破损,有生命之虞。她不愿意动手术,但交托给天主。

我也奉上陈安当神父,他也是在为生命的继续而挣扎。

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。

求主垂怜。阿门!
