For My Brother Seminarian
« on: December 23, 2005, 01:17:53 PM »
When it rains it pours....

I have also learned that a fellow seminarian at Holy Cross has suffered a mild heart attack. He has apparently recovered, but he is recovering from an operation to implant several stents. He just started his program this fall.

Please pray for him, his wife, and their children. My understanding is that he is likely to recover, but that it stands to reason he may be wondering if he should still continue this program, along with other questions he must be asking. Thanks!

Lord, have mercy.
For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, & godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope & glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed & purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.  Speak these things, exhort, and rebuke with all authority. (Titus 2:11-15)
