A note about intentions and prayers while I am in Rome

First, I don’t remember as I write exactly who asked me to pray at a site in Rome associated with St. Gregory, but yesterday at the tomb of St. Gregory in St. Peter’s Basilica, I asked St. Gregory to ask God – who knows perfectly well who you are, to give abundant graces and help for whatever the needs are.

Second, I decided today that, with the exception of one Mass, all the Masses I will say while I am in Rome these few more says will be for benefactors (three, always in the list).  I am especially grateful to those of you who sent donations before – and now during the trip – so that I could come.

I am getting internet well on my iPhone but not my laptop.  So, if you send a note with a prayer intention I try to remember you as I get around and do things.  Put PRAYER IN ROME in the subject line, so I can weed them out.  When I got online today I had 867 unread emails waiting for me.  Okay?  I delete any mail with a title in the subject line and I never look at unexplained links.  Ehv-vur.

I will also look at your URGENT PRAYER REQUESTS.

    Pray for everyone on the east coast suffering from the hurricane! Many homes are still without power and it is cold. In NJ only about 25% of the gas stations in north NJ are open.

    Please pray for my sister Mary who is undergoing very serious medical tests all week.

    I have no specific requests today, Father, but I was able to light a “birthday” candle for you at the seminary tonight (instead of last week as I had hoped) and pray for your intentions at Vespers . I hope and pray your trip is going well.

    Thank you, Fr. Z! I asked you to pray for my father at the tomb of St. Gregory, and I’m sure God has heard you. Thanks so much!

    Fr. Z — I’m trying to be in Rome on the 22nd, will you still be there? If so, I would be blessed to meet with you for a desertif or whenever you have time! We’re hoping to attend the new Nov. 24th installation (?) of new Cardinals (w/ the Malankara Syriac contingent! Viva HB Baselios Cardinal Cleemis Catholicos!)- viva il Papa!
