Calixto Lopez Sr.
Prayer for Clicke

My 89 year old grandfather is hospitalized for the second time in two weeks, and it doesn't look good. I'm supposed to visit him (and the rest of my family) in Miami in two weeks. I don't know if he'll make it until then.

Clicke (Click-eh)is my grandfather and he's not doing so well. He's 89, and has had problems in the past with his carotids being occluded. Now he was hospitalized last week for cardiac irregularities. Last night he was hospitalized again for the same problem, but now also had fluid in his lungs.

I don't know if he'll make it until my scheduled vacation in two weeks. I'm asking for your prayers so that he can, at least hold out long enough for me to see him one last time. At best, of course, I hope for a full recovery, but the chances of that seem very unlikely, barring a miracle.

Aisklepios please minister to my grandfather, and heal his infirmities at least long enough for me to meet him again. Phoibos Apollon please avert the illness from Clicke. Hugeia, please restore your qualities to him.

I ask this of all of you Blessed Immortals, if ever an offering was pleasing to you, please grant my requests.

Great Asklepios, skilled to heal mankind,
all-ruling Paian, and physician kind;
whose arts medicinal can alone assuage
diseases dire, and stop their dreadful rage.
Strong, lenient God, regard my suppliant prayer,
bring gentle health, adorned with lovely hair;
convey the means of mitigating pain,
and raging deadly pestilence restrain.
O power all-flourishing, abundant, bright,
Apollonís honoured offspring, God of light;
husband of blameless Hygeia, the constant foe
of dread disease, the minister of woe:
come, blessed saviour, human health defend...

I ask Heimdall's blessing on you and yours through this hardship, goodspeed on your Grandfather's healing, and healing hands for his caregivers.

May the Aesir and Vanir keep and protect Calixto and his Grandfather.

Hail Heimdall, Goldtooth,
Child of nine sisters, Watchman of the gods, Brightest Ase,
You who dwell in Himinbiorg,
You who defend the Gods,
With your knowledge of healing runes
please help my friend Calixto
as he faces the sickness of his Grandfather, Clicke. Speed Calixto's journey, and hold them both in your protection. Please watch over Clicke, as you watch Asgard, keeping him safe and whole, at least until Calixto sees him next.

Best wishes,

May Brighid watch over him and aid in his speedy recovery.

I call on all Theoi from Zeus downward to witness my imploration.

Man knows not the will of the gods, nor of Fate, but I ask that one man, Clicke, and his gentle granddaughter Calixto, be united in this world again.

If it be your will, Phoibos Apollon, Archer-god, take back your arrows and restore to Clicke the flow of health. May your son Aisklepios show those who care for him the proper means and dedication.

If it be your will, Atropos, Wise Crone of the Fates, hold your shears, and cut not the thread of life of Clicke before his granddaughter beholds his face again.

If it be your will, Hermes, Luck-bringing messenger of the immortals and guide of men and shades alike, show Calixto the way back to the arms of Clicke with all haste.

If it be your will, Hestia, maiden of the eternal flame, reunite this family under one roof to warm themselves by your hearth.

And if it be your will, mighty Athena Polymetis, Thea whom I have raised above all others, gentle mentor and teacher, Tritogenia, grant all who care for Clicke the wisdom and stealth to do what is best and right in this time of concern. Bless this family as the generations come together in harmony.

May the gods be kind.


4/3/2003 14:47

Brighid, divine pure flame, please watch over Clicke in his time of need. Let his walk be peaceful, whever the path leads. Lend his family strength and clarity. Encompass them in their time of need, and if it his to be that Clicke goes to meet his God(s), we pray the family gets the time to say their goodbyes and wish him well on his journey.

4/3/2003 23:27

Asklepios, hear me and quickly come to aid Calixto's grandfather. Lord Apollon, may you watch over Clicke in this time of need. Hermes, watch over Calixto's journey, make it stress-free and swift, and let him see his grandfather again in this life. I will pour out libations to you and give sacrifice, just as I have done before.

4/5/2003 22:29

Gentle Psyche, Holder of The Light of Understanding;
Let that light guide Calixto and his grandfather in facing whatever future the Fates have decreed.

4/8/2003 10:55

I light a candle every day for your grandfather's speedy recovery

4/8/2003 11:41

I will give three libations to the healing Gods so that they might heal your grandfather.

His beloved grandfather, affectionately known as Clicke, passed into eternal rest this morning.

During this sad time, knowing just how much your friends love and support you is always a welcome blessing and helps to somewhat ease the pain. Remember, there is no true death per se, he will always live on in your heart and mind, he will always be remembered and honored by his loving family.

Everyone, let's extend our embrace during his grief, perhaps we can share poems or songs that touched us during our own time of loss, compose something original as we are moved to speak, give simple words of comfort, or just simply let Cal know we are here. I am sure it would be very appreciated and it would also be a beautiful tribute to his grandfather's memory. I noticed that there is a page for memorials, when the time is right I'm sure there will be a place there for us to leave messages, but in the meantime let's use whatever medium (boards, email, call) we have to extend our sypmathies.

As you learn of the time and place of the service, Cal, please share that information with us. I think it would be a kind gesture to send flowers to the funeral home in Miami. Sometimes words escape us, and that is why we have symbolic gestures to speak of our feelings. If perhaps Clicke had a favorite charity, we could also send memorials in his name there to honor his life.

This is a poem I have always thought beautiful and I hope it gives some comfort...

Autumn Rain

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond's glint on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle Autumn's rain.

When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight,
I am the soft stars that shine at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there,
I did not die.

Thank you again, Morri. :)

4/10/2003 20:54

Unelvnvhi, Creator God, be with Calixto & his family in this time of loss. Creator God, be right beside Clicke as he walks on his new journey. Be with all of them, all of the time.


4/10/2003 20:59

Unelvnvnhi, Gigage Asgaya Kanati, Elohi Etsi Selu,

All over the earth the hearts of living things are all alike. . .

Look upon these faces of your creations,

some with children in their arms,

some with sadness in their arms.

Be right with them as they face the winds and walk the good road.

The path splits and some walk the good road to the darkening land and the day of quiet.

Let their shadow dancing be ever joyful.

Even in our sadness there is their dance of life.

There is no death,

only a change of worlds,

only a change of worlds...
