I am very sad for a friend tonight. Her sweet baby boy R was born yesterday, but due to shoulder distocia and lack of oxygen, they are saying that he will be severely brain damaged. After having a healthy baby and amazing homebirth just over a month ago, I am having a hard time dealing with this...

O God, your Son accepted our sufferings to teach us the virtue of patience in human illness. Hear the prayers we offer for our sick brothers and sisters. May all who suffer pain, illness or disease realize that they are chosen to be saints, and know that they are joined to Christ in his suffering for the salvation of the world, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen
