In your charity would you please take a moment look at the requests and to pray for the people about whom you read?

Continued from THESE.

Let’s remember all who are ill, who will die soon, who have died recently, who have lost their jobs, who are afraid.

I get many requests by email asking for prayers. Some are heart-achingly grave and urgent.

As long as my blog reaches so many readers in so many places, let’s give each other a hand. We should support each other in works of mercy.

If you have some prayer requests, feel free to post them below.

You have to be registered here to be able to post.

In your kindness continue prayers for my mother, who is much better but recovery is slow.


Back 0n 22 August I posted:

Also, for my physical next-door neighbor, “Mike”, who knocked my door the other day for a ride to the hospital.  He has been diagnosed with leukemia which came on, BANG!, without warning.  The jab is suspected.  He’ll be in the hospital for over a month. I am taking care of his house, lawn, etc.

I stayed in touch with Mike via text and then he went silent. I had a phone call from his sister yesterday who got my number from Mike’s phone.  Mike died.  His sister said that he just couldn’t stand the treatment anymore and asked for hospice care.   She told me that they got a priest there – THANKS BE TO GOD – who heard his confession, anointed him, and gave him Communion.  I hope he got the Apostolic Pardon, too.

Anyway, I’ll be taking care of his house and lawn for a while until the family (who are in another part of the country) figure things out.

Please pray for the repose of soul of Mike M.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and perpetual light shine upon him.  May he rest in peace.  May his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.  Amen.

And as far as you readers are concerned, remember the most important petition in our Church’s great Litany:

“A subitanea et improvisa morte… From a sudden and unprovided death, spare us O Lord.”

A sudden death can be a blessing.

A sudden and unprovided death – unprovided in the sense of having no recourse to the sacraments when you are not in the state of grace – is a horrifying prospect.

Make plans for, provide for, the needs of both body and soul for yourselves and those in your charge.

You don’t know when your death will come, natural or not.



Fathers!  Bishops! You will be called to account for the souls entrusted to you.

Preach about sin, about the Four Last Things, about the Sacrament of Penance.

    Please pray for the souls of two priest acquaintances in our archdiocese who passed away last week. One mostly retired (mid-80s). One (late 50s) who had been ill a few years ago, then in remission, then returned. Good men, both.

  7. Padre Pio Devotee says:

    For the reparation of and the Intentions of the Holy Face of Jesus, the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, and the Chaste Heart of St. Joseph.

    For the release of the Holy Souls in Purgatory, especially those of deceased bishops, priests, and religious, as well as the most abandoned, forgotten, and furthest from Heaven. For the repose of the soul of M.E., R.M., and B.D.

    For the conversion of sinners and the enemies of God, and the thwarting of their plans. For the salvation of the dying.

    For the restoration of Holy Mother Church, and the assistance to all her bishops, priests, and religious (living and deceased). For mercy upon our country, the USA. For the conversion of our country, her leaders (secular and ecclesiastical), and all her peoples, and an end to all legalized sin, especially abortion. For the protection of the unborn.

    For the least, the lonely, and the last. Those contemplating abortion. For the despairing and suicidal, and those who have no one to pray for them.

    Please pray for the people of Lahaina, Maui. And all of the people of Maui. The wildfires has had so many seen and unseen ripple effects. For all our spiritual and temporal needs.

    Deo Gratias! Our Lady of Perpetual Help—thank you! St. Joseph—thank you! Holy Angels and Saints —thank you!

    Please God, for the full recovery and healing of Frank Walker of Canon212, who has apparently suffered a significant stroke. Frank Walker is an amazing Catholic man who runs an excellent blog that keeps so many updated on things in and out of the church. He is a devout Catholic and it is sure he would appreciate any prayers sent his way. Life certainly can change in a fraction of a second.
    Prayers going up for Fr Z intentions and the intentions of all here.
    Please Lord, hear our prayers, amen.
