I have promised Saint Benedict that  if my operation next week would be as painless, quick and easy, I  promised him that I will be an Oblate and  I am to commission a wooden image of him.

It would look like this:

(Go to the gallery and see  "Saint Benedict 1")

But instead  of being carved in the round, it  will have a  mannequin body so that  it could be posed easily for being clothed.  Also,  instead of being brownish  as  in the picture,  it shall be given a fair complexion  (I  would also provide a photo of the same statue above  but with that complexion.

Prayer before an Operation
O Lord Jesus Christ our God,
You patiently endured the scourging and wounding of your sacred body,
 that You may save the souls and bodies of your people.
 Look now graciously on the suffering body of  Neopelagianus;
 give him the strength to bear patiently whatever awaits him.
Bless the people and all the means which will be used to restore him to health,
and grant that he may accept his bodily sufferings as a means of reparation for the salvation of his soul.
 For You, O Christ,  Our God and Saviour, are merciful,
and we, your people, thank You and glorify You, together with your Eternal Father and with Your all-Holy and life-giving Spirit, now and ever, and forever.
 Amen.

Our Father who art in heaven
hallowed be thy name
thy kingdom come, thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven
give us this day our daily bread
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us
and lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil
Amen.

Sacred Heart of Jesus have mercy.
Sacred Heart of Jesus please hear our prayers.

Well, today is the day that I will be getting on the hospital in order to have laparascopy (sp?). Please pray through the intercession of St. Benedict, St. Luke, St. Jude and especially of Our Lady that this would succesfully remove my gallstones (without causing me much pain.

Thank You!
