Our Assistant Parish Priest was taken by ambulance to hospital this morning. Last night he was unable to move or get help from the Prior or the visiting priest (our Parish Priest is away). Fr Jerome spends innumerable hours with ill, and with dying people, but now it is he who is in need of healing prayer and kindness. Please may I ask your prayers for our generous priest.
Dear Father, please ease the pain, and heal whatever injury is causing crippling pain in this Christ-like priest. I offer last his night’s distress and pain to You in union with Your Son’s suffering. Please flood Your blessings on Fr. Jerome and let this time make his spirit, even more holy, and deepen his relationship with You further.
If You will, give him healing so that He can return to his tireless ministry. Please comfort his brother priests who are distressed to see their cheerful brother in pain.
Thank You, Father, for the gift of Father Jerome and his brother priests. We are blessed beyond words to have them share and guide our lives, and to offer the Sacraments of Your Son’s Church to us
