That is good news!
( I am a little stumped, because I could have sworn that I posted a prayer post for you, which I wrote, but now I can't find it...Perhaps I forget to click on post.)
In any case, I just wanted you to know that, because you are a dear friend in Christ, and my prayer was with you and your beloved mother, Kiria Xionati. I pray for her well being but also for her soul to be relieved of the bitterness of a life of bad luck. Unfortunately, that is a bitter pill and a challenge, even for the most spiritual people. May the Lord have mercy and bring the sweet balm of healing the soul with His Holy Spirit and love!
Perhaps you might want to share the life of St. Nektarios with her. It has helped many people with the sting of bad luck in their lives, because his life was like that too. I remember my elderly grandmother, after she read 'A Saint of our Times', putting the book down pensively and saying "the saint would have good things happen in his worldly life, only to be thrown down again and again." The book also brought her great peace, because along with the ups and downs experienced by the Saint, of which many of us can identify, there is so much love and faith in God, His holy Mother, and the saints, that one is touched and rejuvenated by God's grace after reading these chapters.
Sending you and your family my love,
