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.
