Dying Priest


In another thread I asked you all to pray for Father Philip, one of my University chaplains who has terminal cancer. Thank you everyone who has prayed so far but I need to ask for more prayers.

Earlier today Philip’s family where called in and he is expected to leave us very soon, probably tonight. Please pray for him that he makes a peaceful and painless end after such a terrible and painful year.

Thank you.


Lord have mercy on Father Philip. Let him pass over to you without pain. Give him these last few moments with his family, let him be aware that they are there and take comfort from them.

Lord welcome him into your kingdom.



I will join you in prayer.
