I was fortunate enough to have Fr. Manoling Francisco, prominent Jesuit composer say mass at our home. His sister happens to be a friend of mine and she spoke to Fr. Francisco and asked if he could say mass for the successful start of the Enzyme Replacement Therrapy (ERT) and overall good health.
Some of my family came over to share with us in offering a mass for the intentions. It was a great mass, very solemn and intimate. Father Francisco gave a good homily. Songs were provided courtesy of my cousin and his friend, who played guitars. My aunts also sang with them.
As I venture into another chapter of fighting Pompe, I’m happy to start it by offering a mass. Wherever this road takes me to I know that with God by my side I will be ok. There’s no challenge I can’t face with Him.
