To Father Patrick

My heart goes out to you today.  I'm pretty sure you don't read my insignificant blog but just in case, I want you to know that you are in our hearts and in our prayers for a speedy recovery. 

For those reading along, Father Patrick is a wonderful elderly monk/priest from St. Gregory's Abbey in Shawnee, OK.  He has been a fill in pastor for the chapel on Tinker AFB for the past 2 decades or so.  We see him every Wednesday for Mass.  We just found out he had a terrible fall in the shower and fractured a bone in his shoulder.  Let us pray for a speedy recovery with as little pain as possible.

"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives, and the one who seeks, finds, and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened." Matthew 7:7-8

Saint Stanislaus Kostka, Pray for Us.  [Patron of broken bones, feast 13 November]

St. Drogo, pray for us. [Also, Patron for those with broken bones, among other things]  

We also ask St. Walburga, my patron saint, a healer and a wonderful lady, to pray for Father Patrick. 

God Bless you, and may God's healing hand comfort you and heal you soon.
