Back in February of 2014, in response to the picture I took above on a street near my home, I wrote:
She was in a black Nissan Versa with a message scrawled on her backwindshield. At first, I wasn't close enough to read it but was intrigued because the message was longer than those usually scrawled on the back of a car.
As I got closer, I was able to make out what it said... and was deeply moved.
Tonight I'm asking you loyal readers and those of you who've stumbled by to spread the word, to pray for Wes, to pray for caregivers, his mother and family. To pray for a miracle. I've addedhim to my list of intentions and will pray a Rosary for him daily.
You can learn more about Wes on his Facebook page, maybe even prayerfully consider helping defray some of the family's medical bills where you can also view a moving tribute to the little guy put together by his mother.
Carry on little Wes, we're pulling for ya buddy.
As of Friday, Wes has a new friend pulling for him:
The hand of Pope Francis touched a Yorktown family in a special way.
Nine-year-old Wes Pak is currently in New York City receiving chemotherapy for stage 4 cancer.
Pope Francis blessed Wes and and ten other children staying at the Ronald McDonald House. Wes’ mother, Krista Pak, tells WAVY.com each child and parent received a rosary.
Krista told WAVY.com Friday night that she was overcome with emotion during the Pope’s blessing.
“Wes needs a miracle and I just prayed so hard that this blessing will be that answer,” Krista said.
We join Krista in that prayer and hope.
Lord, may it be done for your glory.
