Yesterday was the feast day of Our Lady's Assumption. So so sorry from being away from this website. My father, Bernard Ciolek, suffered a heart attack on Tuesday and he passed away yesterday on the feast day of Our Lady! What a gift for all of us. He is so greatly blessed. He received Extreme Unction and was blessed by a priest. Canon Sequiera from St. Joseph Oratory was very very kind in coming out the day of his death and blessed him and prayed a rosary with us two hours before he passed away. What a beautiful holy death. God is so good.
His funeral will be this week and I may not get to this site again for awhile but I will try. There are many articles in the archives to read as well - please stay tuned and read them.
I will be back soon - thank you so much for your prayers - I didn't even have time to ask for your prayers as he was in the hospital but he needs them now as well. Thank you so much and may God richly bless all of you through the prayers and intercession of our Good Queen and Mother!!
Thank you Eternal Father for Jesus and Mary! You love us SO MUCH and we love you in return. God be Praised!!
