Please remember our parish priest and his wife in your prayers, Fr. Jacob and Mat. Rebecca. He is in ICU, with flu, pneumonia and a possible staph infection.

I was just getting ready to post this exact same thing, Katherine.

Lord have mercy!
Even if we have thousands of acts of great virtue to our credit, our confidence in being heard must be based on God's mercy and His love for men. Even if we stand at the very summit of virtue, it is by mercy that we shall be saved.

Wow!  Triple whammy!

May the Lord show mercy upon His servant and grant him a speedy and complete recovery!!!!

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

:(

Memory Eternal!

Fr. Jacob died during his unction service in ICU.

May The Lord ease the sorrow of his widow, and all who mourn his passing.

May The Lord forgive him all his sins, and grant him eternal life among His saints.

Memory Eternal!

I am very grateful to have known Fr. Jacob for the short year that I did.  He was such a genuine person who truly cared for those around him.  His life was devoted to Christ, our parish (serving 3-4 liturgies per week), and to feeding the poor and homeless through our parishes food program. 

This all just seemed to happen so fast.  Still cant really believe it.

You will be missed tremendously my friend.

Memory Eternal.

May the Lord our God give rest to the soul of His servant, who has fallen asleep.

To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.
