Request for prayers for a priest

I just finished a skype call with a priest friend who is a busy pastor of a large important parish… and who has a horrible, life threatening disease.

In your kindness will you stop now and stay a prayer for Fr. P?

    I have entrusted him to the Queen of all Heaven and earth with a simple Ave.

  13. Liz F says:

    I just did, and we will pray for him at mass and in our morning prayers. I just asked my daughter to help me remember to pray for Fr. P and Fr. C (from that other post) and my daughter quipped, “… and Fr. Z?” Fathers P,C, and Z. LOL! Of course! We will pray for them (and you) in our morning prayers and at mass. I have a friend whose daughter just entered a convent. It’s very small so far, but their charism is to pray for priests. That’s what made her want to join.

    Please also pray for Father C who is the victim of an unjust and unfounded accusation, announced just this weekend. He is a very good priest.

  22. q7swallows says:

    A van-full of children hurtling home from Mass just stopped and prayed an Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be for Fr. P. Then, the oldest boy put on “The Battle” from the Narnia soundtrack on . . . loud.

  29. carolg says:

    Prayers offered.

  30. Liz F says:

    I worried during mass that my previous comment sounded very flip. I didn’t mean for it to and we prayed very hard for Fr. P and Fr. C at mass and during our rosary. I know that they priests often suffer terribly. q7swallows, I like that.
