    Praying for you father.

  5. Inkstain says:

    Praying for you as well, Father. We appreciate all that you do for us.

  6. Not only for me. Actually, more for someone else.

  7. ElizabethMahlou says:

    God knows for whom I am praying even if I don’t. Sending prayers your way, Father. (BTW, I accidentally filled out another registration form before, silly me, I realized that I was already registered. Hope that does not cause you any confusion or extra time. Sorry!)

  8. rotaa says:

    Father, you are in my prayers.

  9. I got bad news of someone else. This is not only about me.

  10. Melania says:

    I’ll pray for the other person too. However, I note that your twitter says you’re not feeling well, that you’re still very tired even after a nap. Are you getting sick?

  11. BLC says:

    I will pray for you both. God bless you, Fr Z.

  12. Sacristymaiden says:

    Praying for you and the “someone else.”

  13. DavidJ says:

    On it.

  14. Reginald Pole says:

    Sub tuum praesidium confugimus Sancta Dei Genetrix. Nostras deprecationes ne despicias in necessitatibus, sed a periculis cunctis libera nos semper Virgo gloriosa et benedicta. Amen.

  15. Sub tuum praesidium confugimus Sancta Dei Genetrix.


  16. An Ave and a Memorare for your intentions Father. I will post this in my blog.

  17. Dorothy says:

    Prayers and very best wishes.

  18. Sieber says:

    As always.

  19. Prayers on the way, Father.

  20. Mariana says:

    My prayers, always.

  21. VivaLaMezzo says:

    All of my sacrifices this month are offered up for the special prayer intentions of others: this includes you and your “other”. Di meliora.

  22. Frank H says:

    Will be adding your intentions as I pray at Mass this morning!

  23. frival says:

    I will be praying for you and the other person as well, Father.

  24. Kimberly says:

    Our Lady knows who you want prayers for Father, I ask for her help.

  25. worm says:

    In prayer today.

  26. ipadre says:

    My prayers are with you!

  27. haleype says:

    Please, Lord, give comfort and solace to those in need. May Your Peace reign in their hearts, enlighten them, console them and give them the confidence and the knowledge that You are with them now and forever. Holy Mary, Mother of God, intercede for us now and forever, Amen.

  28. jmhj5 says:

    Father you are a “spiritual Father” to many…..God hears our prayers for you and your friend…may you be given God’s Holy Wisdom—?in abundance! Thank You!
    God Bless you!

  29. Thomas in MD says:

    A Memorare and my daily dedication for priests are for you and yours, good Father.

  30. wanda says:

    I will be praying for you and the other person(s). I’ve been including you Father in my daily prayer that is specifically for Priests. In this year for Priests a project sprang up to adopt in prayer a particular Priest. The names of each of the Priests in our Archdiocese were printed on prayer cards. We include that particular Priest in our daily prayer.

    You and your intentions will be lifted up to the Lord and to Our Blessed Mother, Mary.

  31. chloesmom says:

    Prayers going up for your intention, Father.

  32. SophiaGrace says:


  33. Liz F says:

    Will pray for you both, Father. I feel bad that we haven’t donated money lately, but we are trying to save up for an expensive adoption. We are trying to pray extra for you since we aren’t donating. We do appreciate all that you do and your blog. I will have the kids stop and say a pray for your situation right now. God bless.

  34. JoeGarcia says:

    My Angelus will be offered up for this intention.

  37. irishgirl says:

    I have already said my daily Rosary; but one of my intentions is always ‘for all our priests and seminarians’.

    So I will send up an extra Ave for you and the ‘someone else’.

  38. Mike says:

    Praying for your intentions, Fr. Z.

  39. Rob Cartusciello says:

    I pray that our Lady will place you with her Son and shelter you in her mantle as she did the Christ Child. God’s grace be with you & His will be done.

  40. Nora says:


  41. Navarricano says:

    I will offer a litany to the Sacred Heart for your friend at night prayers tonight. Praying for you as well.

  42. Praying for God’s will and your encouragement, Father.

  43. Sandy says:

    Mother Mary is working on this intention, for both of you! She never lets us down, just as the Memorare says. God’s blessings!
