ACTION ITEM! Prayers for Fr. John Hunwicke, scriptor admirabilis

I received a note from a family member of Fr. John Hunwicke who posts on his splendid site Mutual Enrichment.

“Father Hunwicke has been told that his suspicious heart requires a “procedure”, which is due to happen this Wednesday. He would be grateful for everybody’s prayers.

Because he has been in hospital for the last eight days, he has been unable to read Comments, or to moderate them. But a new post, he trusts, is still popping up on his blog daily, because he has drafted quite a number in advance.”

I am told that Father H is in good spirits.

Omnipotens sempiterne Deus, salus aeterna credentium: exaudi nos pro famulo tuo infirmo, pro quo misericordiae tuae imploramus auxilium; ut, reddita sibi sanitate, gratiarum tibi in Ecclesia tua refereat actiones.

Almighty ever-living God, eternal salvation of believers: graciously hear us as we beg the help of Thy mercy for your ailing servant; so that, once health has been restored to him,  he may in Thy Church give Thee thanks.

    Oh, I so love Fr. Hunwicke! He is a faithful priest, and I enjoy his blog so much. You can learn a zillion things from Fr. Hunwicke, and I have learned, he is kind, very kind. He will be in my prayers, and please Fr. Z., if you get an address where we could write to him, I would love to know it. Please God, please take care of him, we certainly do need him.

    REMEMBER, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly to thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother; to thee do I come; before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.
