Prayers for a priest: Fr. Trigilio

I had a note from someone suggesting that there is a report that Fr. John Trigilio may be been in some kind of traffic accident.  (Vague, I know, but that is what I am working with.)

Many of you will have seen Fr. Trigilio on EWTN.

May I suggest prayers for his well being if needed?  If true, prayers will help and if not true, you have prayed for a priest.

UPDATE:

From the EWTN page:

Dear EWTN Family:
Please keep Fr. John Trigilio, Co-host of Web of Faith and Crash Course in Catholicism, in your prayers as he recovers from non-life threatening injuries sustained in an automobile accident. He is currently at home recovering and his condition continues to improve. He appreciates all the prayers!

    Apparently Fr. Trigilio is in critical condition from a car accident on Monday March 19. Oh no!!!

    New I read from another site.

    On Monday, March 19th, it was announced that Father John Trigilio has been in a bad car accident and is in critical condition! He was coming back home to his parish after visiting his mother who recently had surgery and is in rehab. Please pray fervently for the total recovery of this good and faithful priest, many of you may know him from EWTN.

    Fr. Trigilio is in my prayers.

    Just sent up a Memorare for him, Father Z.
    Oh, I hope that it’s not serious.
    I’ll also check over on the EWTN site and see if there’s anything there.

  6. AnAmericanMother says:

    Oh, dear! I prayed the Memorare already, but I’ll pray it again.

    @ Aquinas: the quote you have in your comment came from the Catholic Answers Forums (CAF).
    There’s one report in the ‘Catholic News’ forum and another in the “Prayer Intentions’ forum.
    In fact, in the latter forum someone wrote that he (or she) had emailed EWTN for verification and any updates.
    Father Trigilio’s in ‘critical condition’….dear Lord, this is going to break his poor mother’s heart! I think he’s the only child she has left!
    Dear Jesus and Mary, help Father T!

    Tim Staples, Catholic Answers’ Director of Apologetics, just spoke with Fr. Trigilio. Here’s the scoop:
    – Father was in a serious car accident Friday night, March 16.
    – He was in ICU three days for observation.
    – He has since been released from the hospital and is currently resting at home.
    – Doctors will continue to monitor his condition.
    – He appreciates your prayer and asks for continued prayers for his recovery over the next few weeks.

    The information posted on the EWTN Facebook page suggests Fr. Tragilio’s condition may not be as serious as the site above indicates:

    Dear EWTN Family:
