Please pray for a young priest who is ill

From a reader:

Please pray for Fr. Alex, one of our dear young priests here in WI. He was diagnosed with leukemia about a month ago and an infection took possession of him. He had a muscle removed in his leg to the knee yesterday and remains in critical condition.  Please pray for both a miracle and a holy death, whichever be the Holy Will of God.  Spread the word to all those who had prayed for Maria to pray for him.  He offered many Masses and sacrifices for her.  He is a beautiful, saintly priest.  He was just ordained on July 31, 2009.  If you would like a face to go with your prayers, he is on my sidebar of my blog
Please also pray for his family, the Society of Jesus Christ the Priest and all of us who are suffering during this time of waiting.

    Fr. Alex is one of the young priests who has been saying Mass for the Cistercian Nuns of Valley of Our Lady, whose altar bread video Fr. Z. posted last week. Sr. Roberta had told me his story and what a remarkable young priest he is. Please do pray for him.

    There was a memorable interview with Fr. Alex a couple of months ago on our local Relevant Radio affiliate. Sort of a “vocations vignette.” Speaking of seminarians who left before ordination, he said ‘some are in love with the IDEA of the priesthood. A man who is truly called is in love WITH JESUS CHRIST.’ Fr. Alex is clearly in love with our Lord, as all who know him can attest. My prayers in the Adoration chapel tonight for his recovery!
