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.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

Lord, have mercy.
Mor has an open appeal. This we knew already.

Mor suffers from Invincible Ignorance and is guaranteed salvation according to the Roman Catholic Church.
