Terminally Ill 29 Year Old to Commit Suicide - UPDATE (the power of prayer)

You'll remember the 29 year old woman who had resolved to commit suicide from a couple of posts earlier this month here (Terminally Ill 29 year old to Commit Suicide. What will Become of her Soul?) and here (Archbishop Gomez "Filled with Sadness Over 29 Year Old Woman Choosing Suicide) and no doubt from the massive media coverage it garnered. 

Well, tomorrow was supposed to be the day - her last day on Earth and, unbeknownst to her, her meeting with Christ the Just Judge. Thank God, and all of you who joined me in praying for this poor woman, she has changed her mind and decided to grant herself a stay of execution:

“That’s advanced thinking, that’s higher order thinking – when you can let go of the trappings of this world and realize there is something else,” reflected Dr. Julie Masters, chairman of the Department of Gerontology at the University of Nebraska.
She told CNA Oct. 30 that Brittany Maynard’s reconsideration is an “interesting development.”
“I think reading some of the things she has said about this idea that she is there with her family and seeing the value of that offers people another perspective on end-of-life care, and what that means,” Masters said. (read more there)
Te Deum Laudamus! Te Domine confitemur! 

Truly, God is good. Keep her in your prayers that she might be brought into Eternal Life by receiving the Sacraments of the Holy Church so that she may live forever in the New Jerusalem.
