Grin! There’s More!
Smile! Keep Scrolling!
Retiring Pastor Monsignor V. Paul Fitzmaurice shared this great news via Flocknote on 6/26/22:
Dear St. Agnes,
I have wonderful news to share with you. The results of the PET Scan that I received on Monday, July 18, showed that there was no cancer! Thank you, Lord Jesus. Praise You King of the Universe. And thank you so much for all your prayers.
The psalmist proclaims the goodness of the Lord: “The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy. The Lord is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works. All thy works shall praise thee, O Lord; and thy saints shall bless thee. They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power.” Psalm 145:8-11
I will have to continue chemotherapy as part of the treatment to “clean up” any cancer cells. My first series of treatments were last week as an outpatient at AHN Hempfield. I have an 18 day respite before I receive chemo again.
I am so looking forward to being with you this weekend for the Mass of Farewell and Reception. Until then, may the Lord bless and keep you in the embrace of His love. Msgr. Paul
