I have the untoward job of sending these kinds of notes. This particular time, I’m saddened beyond words. This is every parent’s worst case scenario. Mark has a big heart. I can barely imagine the pain it’s experienced. I’m going to call my son right now and tell him I love him.
You’re all men of deep faith. Please hold Mark, Danny, Shannon and their entire family up in prayer. Keep them in your prayers going forward. Prayer matters.
Today marks the National Day of Prayer for Life which is outlined below. During these challenging times for many, prayer is one thing that should remain consistent throughout our daily activities.
Whether it be at Mass, at work, or in the comfort of your home, please take time to pray for a change in our Culture in our efforts in Protecting the Sanctity of Human Life.
Knights, Sisters of Life Urge Prayer for Life
At a Mass on May 3, 2010, commemorating the 10th anniversary of the passing of His Eminence John Cardinal O’Connor, Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan of New York initiated a National Prayer Campaign for Life, which is being co-sponsored by the Sisters of Life and the Knights of Columbus.
Knights, Catholics and all people of good will are invited to join in raising up a great prayer for life across the nation through the daily recitation of this prayer:
Eternal Father, Source of Life,
strengthen us with your Holy Spirit to receive the abundance of life you have promised.
Open our hearts to see and desire the beauty of your plan for life and love.
Make our love generous and self-giving so that we may be blessed with joy.
Grant us great trust in your mercy.
Forgive us for not receiving your gift of life and heal us from the effects of the culture of death.
Instil in us and all people reverence for every human life.
Inspire and protect our efforts on behalf of those most vulnerable especially the unborn, the sick and the elderly.
We ask this in the Name of Jesus, who by His Cross makes all things new. Amen.

I talked to Jim Burns last night and again this morning. Ed is still in the hospital. He’s been at Henry Ford and not St John’s as previously reported. They expect to release him today. Ed should be moving to Orchard Grove at some point today.
Would you please keep Ed and his lovely wife Rosalyn in your prayers? Ed is quite sick and could use us all pulling together in prayer. Thank you and God bless.
