For a Pastor in our diocese

A priest in our diocese has cancer that has spread throughout his body. They thought he was moving in the right direction, but then his doctors found the mass was growing again and, ultimately, it did not respond to further treatment. Long story short, he is going to die. He let his congregation know in his final Masses. Please pray for him, a restful sleep and a place in Heaven. He is a good man.

It struck me how hard it must be to know you’re going to die in a few days or even weeks. What would you do? Try to see as many loved ones as possible? Spend time on your own? Would you even sleep? This is so difficult to think about, and of course harder to experience. So please also pray for all of those people in this situation, for a peaceful death and a joyful meeting with the Lord.

Thank you.

Prayer for a Miracle

God of all creation, you who spoke a simple command and brought forth light from
the darkness, I ask you now to send forth your miracle-working power to heal (Millstreet’s Pastor). You cleansed the lepers, opened the eyes of the blind and by
speaking a simple command, you empowered the crippled to rise up and walk.
You sent forth your life-giving power to all those in need, including those you raised from
the dead. I ask you to send forth your healing power into Millstreet’s friend’s body and give him the strength to fight his illness. I ask this through my Lord, Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen

Prayer to St. Anthony for Those With Cancer

Dear St. Anthony, you recognized Our Lord Jesus as the Divine Healer. In your goodness and kindness, please intercede for Millstreet’s Pastor, who is suffering from cancer. If it is God’s will, may the gift of healing be granted to him. Comfort him during times of unbearable pain, and ask our Lord to grant him peace and patience in suffering. May God give him the fullness of life here on earth. Through Christ Our Lord, Amen.
