Thom Peters: Progress 1 year after his life-changing accident

Remember that Thomas Peters (blogger and son of canonist Ed Peters) had a swimming accident that caused severe damage?  That was one year ago, today.

I saw THIS and want you all to know about it:

One year since, one year strong
Today, the feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, marks the one year anniversary of Thom’s accident. As this day approached, we reflected together upon where we were last year and where we are today. We agree that we want this day to be a joyful remembrance and not a sorrowful one. After all, the all-encompassing effects of the accident are with us every day, but today is a chance to be grateful for God’s mercy, continued providence, and His love. As Thom wrote in his reflections when he left the hospital, so many miracles were needed for him to get through the accident alive and to survive the following months. We are so grateful for all of these miracles.

Today we invite you to pray and celebrate with us for all the grace and beauty that has come out of the accident. We are grateful beyond words for the outpouring of love and support this past year.

We want to leave you with a video and photo of what gives us hope and joy these days — this progress wouldn’t be possible without your prayers and generosity!


My readers will, in their goodness, pray for your progress and recovery.
