Prayers for Johnette


Posted April 22 on Catholic Exchange:

Johnnette Benkovic, popular Catholic commentator and talk show host, learned yesterday that her husband Tony has been diagnosed with a brain tumor. For those of you who know Johnnette, she recently suffered a devastating loss in the death of her son Simon last year.

Johnnette was to be leading a “Woman of Grace” conference this coming
weekend in Chicago, which she now will not be able to attend. Please pray
for her, and for Tony, that they will find the strength they need to cope
with this unexpected and most distressing diagnosis.

Johnnette has asked that we ask Pope John Paul II to intercede for her
family, that Tony’s might be the miracle the Lord provides to bring about a condition of his beatification.

Please also pray specifically for Johnnette, who desperately needs prayers for strength and comfort. May the Lord be merciful to her, and make her burden as light as possible.

If you would like to send her a note, letting her know of your prayers on her behalf, please write:

WOW - how horrible. I will add her family to my list. I love watching her and her wisdom.


I am so sorry to hear that!After losing their son last year! I will pray for strength for her and her family and that they may have a miracle of healing for her husband Tony.


I will pray for her and her husband…so sad just losing her son only a year ago…:frowning:


I echo the comments of the posters.
