. . . Prayed for you the last time you had a mean bug too – just decided to post this time around as a reminder/assurance that some of us pray for your intentions w/o always posting about it.
God bless you Fr.Z .

In your charity, could you please remember me and my family? WE have three personal intentions… one is the source of unbelievable stress and anxiety.

Please pray for my husband’s father. He is apparently in the hospital and dying of bone cancer. My husband has not spoken to him in years because of an abusive past. The two of us have already said a divine Mercy chaplet for him and are praying for the state of his soul as he goes to meet God. Thank you. Also, praying for all intentions here.
I am reading through the intentions here and am about to pray for them, all.
I may not attend Mass or do the sacraments, but I still pray.
Our Pastor, Fr. Aidan Devine, just died from multiple pulmonary emboli. Please pray for the repose of his soul and that our parish may continue to function until our Bishop finds us a new pastor.
