“We discovered that our son had serious health problems. He was hospitalised twice and that worried us a lot.
We entrusted our concerns to an elderly person who prayed for him. She agreed to carry this burden with us. It’s hard to feel helpless when faced with your child’s suffering, but when there’s more than one person carrying the burden, it’s easier.
We believe that God answers the prayers of those who cry out to Him. This invisible support has been very comforting. I was touched by the faithfulness of this elderly nun who took the time to write to us regularly and to encourage us.
Our son is not cured, but we have confidence in the future and we believe in the strength of communion.”
