  15. Pie and Palestrina says:

    @SuperTradMum: IIRC, Father’s patron saint is St. John the Baptist. I believe he has posted about having two feast days because of having this particular patron.

    Of course, I could be utterly misremembering. Even if I am, though, I doubt that St. John the Baptist will disdain any such requests. ;)

    In any case, best wishes for a speedy recovery, Father.

    Prayers for you Father and to Saint Vincent Ferrer

    O Glorious apostle and thaumaturge, St. Vincent Ferrer, the new angel of the Apocalypse and our protector, accept our humble prayer and bring down upon us the abundance of divine favors. By that charity which animated thy heart, obtain for us from the Father of all mercy the pardon of our sins, steadfastness in the faith, perseverance in good works; so that living a fervent Christian life, we may deserve thy powerful patronage. Extend that patronage even to our bodies, and free them from infirmity. Preserve our fields from the damages of storm and hail, and keep off all misfortune. Thus favored by Thee with blessings in soul and body, we shall ever be thy devout clients, and one day with thee praise God in heaven, world without end. Amen.

  19. On the way up, Father.
    I hope you will start feeling better very soon.
    And I really liked jameeka’s suggestion, above, that you get someone to come stay with you if that’s at all possible. Nothing worse than being sick when you’re on your own.

  20. Liz says:

    Oh no! We will keep praying. I hope you have a good doctor.

  21. Mike says:

  28. Maltese says:

    I recently had a stroke which put me on the ground after a run; I was helicopter lifted to a trauma center (despite my pleas not to do so–I’m a prior EMT).

    For whom the Bell Tolls–it tolls for thee, but also me!

    Sorry for your hospital issues, Father, honestly very sorry.

    So is a German in France. It’s night here, and very quiet, and some encense smoke might convey my prayers to the Heaven.

  31. Jean Marie says:

    A Glory be to the Father… and a Hail Mary that you return to good health soon, Fr. Z.

    Will continue praying for you, Father.

  35. Kathleen10 says:

    Prayers coming your way Father. We would all understand if you took a few days to rest and recuperate. Take care of yourself first.

  36. RafkasRoad says:

    Dear Fr. Zuhlzdorf,

    , I am praying earnestly for your swift and full recovery, for the doctor who will be attending to you, , that they diagnose correctly and treat appropriately your condition, as have others mentioned also.

    Additionally, echoing the thoughts of other commenters, I trust and pray that there is someone on the ground to be with you, help you, and do for you as and when is needed, as others have stated, being unwell on one’s own is a rotten thing indeed. I wonder if readers here who know Fr. personally and live near by could lend a hand??? Pity we’re half a world away here, but I’ll be praying all the more as I am sure other Aussie readers will.

    take time to rest and recover.


    Aussie Marounite.
    St. Rafka, pray for Fr. Zuhlzdorf.

  37. Brailey55 says:

    Most definitely Fr. Z! I will certainly keep you in my prayers for a speedy return to good health. God bless and thank you for all the good you do!

  38. Atra Dicenda, Rubra Agenda says:

    Sirach 38:9-14

    “When thou fallest sick, do not neglect thy own needs; pray to the Lord, and thou shalt win recovery. Leave off thy sinning, thy life amend, purge thee of all thy guilt. With frankincense and rich oil make bloodless offering of meal; and so leave the physician to do his work. His task is of divine appointment, and thou hast need of him; let him be ever at thy side. Needs must, at times, to physicians thou shouldst have recourse; and doubt not they will make intercession with the Lord, that they may find a way to bring thee ease and remedy, by their often visiting thee.”

  39. Diane at Te Deum Laudamus says:

    Sorry you are not well, Father. Prayers on a quick recovery.

  40. Jeannie_C says:

    How are you doing today, Fr. Z? Any better? Please let us know, it’s important to change prayers to thanksgiving if so.

    Are you feeling any better, Fr. Z? I sure hope so!

  46. cyejbv says:

    OK. Doctor? Sheemeny Fr.! I hope you’re better soon and will pray for you, asking intercession especially through Our Blessed Mother Mary and St. Michael.

    God Bless You Father, get well soon.
    p.s. no more sick altar boys assisting! :)
