Prayers Requested

I've just received word from an acquaintance that her relative is in dire need: a Catholic mother in Sri Lanka has just given birth to a premature boy (2 pounds, but doing well), and she has recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer. Her 6-year-old son, while visiting her in the hospital, fell out of the fourth floor window and died. This mother used to be a devout Catholic, but left the Church some time ago. Please pray an Ave (or two) for her and for her husband, who has just lost his firstborn son, and faces the prospect of losing his wife and raising his newborn son alone.
