Tuesday Sep 15: Lina Gil passed away comfortably in her sleep at the Royal Alex Hospital today. Her family was by her side as her pulmonary fibrosis ran its course. We are all deeply saddened by her departure from this world, but there is joy in knowing that she is with her God now, and reunited with her husband, Ignacio. We are also very grateful that family members were with her as she passed into the next life.
There will be viewings this Saturday from 2pm to 5pm, and again this Sunday, 2pm to 5pm. The Sunday event will have prayer services at 3:30pm. Both viewings will be at Connelly-McKinley funeral home (10011-114 street in downtown Edmonton).
Her funeral will be this Monday at 10:30am, St. Andrew church, 12810-111 avenue.
9 days of prayer have already started, and will continue daily at 5:30pm, St. Andrew church.

Prayer for Priests
Keep them, I pray Thee, dearest Lord, keep them,
For they are Thine—Thy priests whose lives burn out
before Thy consecrated shrine
Keep them, for they are in the world, though from the world apart;
when earthly pleasures tempt, allure
—shelter them in Thy heart.
Keep them, and comfort them in hours of loneliness and pain,
when all their life of sacrifice for souls
seems but in vain.
Keep them, and O remember, Lord,
they have no one but Thee,
yet they have only human hearts,
with human frailty.
Keep them as spotless as the Host,
that daily they carress:
their every thought and word and deed,
Deign, dearest Lord, to bless.
(Imprimatur: + D. Cardinal Dougherty, Philadelphia)
Attention visitors to the ICU : Mr. Paul Gil has now given instructions to lift the visiting restrictions to the ICU for Mrs. Lina Gil. Visitors will be allowed to see her as long as they observe proper hospital decorum for the sick.
A volunteer screener may be posted close to the intercom so that you do not have to ring the nurse station for permission. If she is not there, ring the ICU 230 and say whom you intend to visit and how many, then wait for instructions.
The permission is given from the ICU desk but she is actually in the CCU for larger space to accomodate the equipment.
Mr. Paul Gil and Mrs. Minnea Gil Jones apologizes for those intending to visit Mrs. Lina Gil but were turned away from ICU , and they hope for some understanding regarding this matter. They also apologize to the priests and other laymen who tried to communicate with Mrs. Lina Gil and that they were not informed of her condition.
She may expire this week.
The prayer group/s of Mrs. Gil is asked to meet and/or communicate to initiate plans for the prayers. A place in St. Andrews Church may be applicable.
What were Mrs. Lina Gil’s wishes? A consensus of opinion is being gathered.
Mr. Paul Gil’s cell no. is 780-953-7285
other phone numbers will be provided.
If a person placed under the Witness Protection Program can be slain in his sheltered home, who can protect him?
Come to think of it, who else but the protectors would know where he is.
Mancao should take note pretty well. This slaying of a witness under the program may be a warning from some baaaad elements for all the witnesses for this case.
Chavit Nasabit has been found using the PSG (Presidential Security Guard) for his own personal bodyguard, specifically on the day when he beat up his common-Law wife.
This should explain the reason why, of all the positions he could have picked for the asking, he chose the position of Deputy National Security Adviser. He could the use the infamous PSG to protect him.
We can now speculate on some particular ramifications should he recant his statements that cut short the term of President Estrada.
