Father Philip
« on: January 13, 2009, 09:55:11 PM »
Father Philip is my old University Chaplain (RC Priest)

He is currently in a hospice suffering from terminal cancer. A few days ago he had a blood transfusion which has resulted in an infection. Today he took a turn for the worse and is now unconscious most of the time with a bad fever. He's in a really bad way.

Please pray for him.

Father Philip's family has been called in and they're not expecting him to last the night.

Please pray for him and that he doesn't suffer in these final moments.

Lord, have mercy on him!

O holy Father, heavenly Physician of our souls and bodies, who hast sent thine Only-begotten Son our Lord Jesus Christ to heal all our ailments and deliver us from death: do thou visit and heal thy servant Father Philip, granting him release from pain and restoration to health and vigor, that he may give thanks unto thee and bless thy holy Name, of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit: both now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.
