Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration

When I was recovering from my tonsillectomy, alone for the most part, things got pretty dark. After days alone, in pain, with little sleep, I felt like I was at the end of my rope. I’m sure all the pain medicine added to my despair. I was never a Catholic, or even a very devout Christian. I don’t remember how I came upon the Franciscan Sisters’ website, but there I was. The Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration hold 24 hour, 365 days a year prayer. They have for many many years. I read that anyone who needs to can make a request for prayer to the Sisters. I was willing to try anything. I filled out the online request form.

I was told that for the next seven days, the Sisters would be praying for me. Wow! That’s powerful. I don’t care what your faith is- the thought of that gives great comfort. I needed comfort- badly! My recovery was still hard, but I took just a little comfort in knowledge that someone was praying for me. I also remember feeling anxious as the 7th day arrived. By the time it did, I was on the mend and knew that it was others’ turn to receive the prayers of the Sisters.

People who know me personally would probably be very surprised that I participated in this. They’d be even more surprised to learn that I was posting a link to the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration’s website. I rarely even go to church. I don’t care. It helped me. It might help you.

So here’s the link. Check it out. I wish you comfort and good health.
