Grandpa
« on: October 14, 2017, 08:23:08 PM »
Some may recall that I posted a while back about my grandpa.  He's dying-- has been for months.  I've had a priest give him last rites and we've prayed the Litany of the Dying for him on three separate occasions.  It's almost funny, how close he gets without dying.  But now it sounds like it's probably the real thing.  So we're traveling up to see him tomorrow, will pray the litany of the dying for him on (what I suppose will be his literal) deathbed.  Please pray for his soul.  You can call him E.R.
I wear it for a memorable honor,
For I am Welsh, you know, good countryman.

Your Grossvater E.R. will be in our prayers and our intentions tomorrow at Mass Mith.

Thank you Alex.

Sorry I've been not on the forum much today.  Been travelling and staying with him in hospice. We prayed the Litany of the dying for him at his deathbed. He's ready to go. Still with us (at the moment).  But definitely ready to go.

Interesting anecdote: my grandma (a Lutheran) said that her pastor came to see him the other day and read some scripture prayers. She said the next day, his priest ("Father Tom", I believe) came by for anointing of the sick. She said he read the same scriptures as her pastor did. (I had a traditional priest come to give him proper last rites, btw).

Thank you all for the prayers. I'll be back and posting once we're back home (spending the night up near grandpa).

Your grandpa is in my prayers.

My dad died in a hospice facility a few years ago, and the people there were terrific and a great consolation to my family. Those people do a valuable work of mercy. May God bless them.
Mother of God, pray for us sinners.

It sounds like your grandpa is ready.  What a blessing to know your loved one is Catholic and ready to go. I will pray for him in my daily rosary intentions for the sick and dying.

May he, and all in attendance, be comforted in this time as he finally leaves this valley of tears.

In paradisum deducant te Angeli; in tuo adventu suscipiant te martyres, et perducant te in civitatem sanctam Jerusalem. Chorus angelorum te suscipiat, et cum Lazaro quondam paupere æternam habeas requiem.

We stopped to see him on the way out of town, hospice nurses think it'll just be a matter of hours, so we're staying put.

Spending another night away from home, grandpa's still with us but I haven no idea why-- everything about him looks dead.  At any rate, sorry for my absence from the forum.  Don't be shy in my absence!  I'll be back and am excited to spend more time online with you guys.  And thank you all very much for your prayers.

Thank you all. He died late last night. We're back home now, though will be travelling again later this week for the funeral.
