For you we’ve been praying on our knees,
and wake you, please.
Jesus send his angels from
to cover you in love, Angela….
These are words
from a new song written by Br. John
Klein about Angela DiLaura. (Br. John is a Legion of
Christ seminarian currently stationed in Atlanta, Georgia.)
A graduate of the Immaculate
Conception Program and Everest Collegiate High School, Angela was recently
struck by a car while riding her bike. She is
recuperating at Mott Children’s Hospital at the University of Michigan.
prayers have definitely been heard by God, because the reports
of her progress are very encouraging. Here is the most
recent update, written by Angela’s father, on the Carepages.com
Another day of grace and healing for Angela. She
has breathed on her own for an hour during two
separate exercises, she has begun to move her head spontaneously,
her lung condition is much improved, and she no longer
needs her EEG or brain pressure monitored. She is now
beyond the mortal risk of the first 10 days of
Thanks to all for your love and ongoing prayer
for Angela--the Lord is glorified in all our trust in
His Dominion, Providence and Faithfulness. May He have Mercy on
us. May His loving will be accomplished in Angela and
in all of us!
We would also like to thank Br

And More good news...posted by Angela´s parents on 9/7/2013
Greetings on the
Vigil of Our Lady´s birthday (and our 29th wedding anniversary!).
We are very delighted to share more good news this
morning. Angela is moving so much more than yesterday! She
is pushing back in all 4 quadrants, repositioning her head
and shoulders, showing awareness to people´s words. She opened her
eyes half way and looked right into Tim´s eyes as
he greeted her this morning!! Her neurosurgeon said that it
is likely they will try to take out the breathing
tube this weekend. She is breathing well when they let
her do her hours of "sprints," solo breathing for an
hour at a time. She will have an MRI today.
They have begun physical therapy. We are certainly filled with
gratitude!! We know the stream of prayers continue. May God
be glorified. We are offering Angela´s sufferings today in union
with Pope Francis´ call to pray and fast today for
peace in Syria. Love to you all!!!
