I would like to ask you to join me tomorrow, March 11th, in beginning to pray a novena to Blessed John Duns Scotus that I be healed from cancer. There is the possibility that I might be healed because of this novena or prayers through the intercession of Blessed John Duns Scotus that you may pray after this novena. Such a healing could even happen in a way that would fulfil the criteria necessary to be used in the canonization of Blessed John Duns Scotus. These are very real possibilities; however, there is also another very real possibility. There is the possibility that I will not be healed.
If this last possibility happens, I will not be disappointed, and I ask that you not be disappointed either. What will most likely happen then is that at the end of my treatment, my cancer will go into remission. After at least 10 years of remission, and maybe even more than 15 years of remission, I will have a relapse. When I do have a relapse, I’m going to start this all over again, and ask you to pray the exact same novena to Blessed John Duns Scotus.
