My dad


My dad is having open heart surgery for the second time in 5 years tomorrow around noon. I ask that you pray that the surgery takes place without complication, and my dad comes out of the surgery just fine. Also pray for peace of mind for my dad and my family as everyone is very anxious and nervous about tomorrow's events.

Your family's rootin' for you, Daddy!

"St. Jude, through prayer you praised God for the wonderful works of Jesus. You asked God for the strength to meet the challenges of your apostolate. You put your trust in God's mercy, believing firmly that God loved you and understood your joys and sorrows, your hopes and fears, and your triumphs and failures. You understood that nothing is impossible for God. I ask you to pray for Marvin now before the Most High so that he too might be filled with God's saving power, understand God's will for him and faithfully place him in God's loving hands. St. Jude pray for us."

I was also interested to find out that the mechanical heart valve that the doctors are using is actually called "The St. Jude Valve."

Wisdom From the Pope

“The inalienable dignity of every human being and the rights which flow from that dignity - in the first place the right to life and the defense of life - are at the heart of the church's message." Pope John Paul ended his address, saying: "In spite of divisions among Christians, 'all those justified by faith through baptism are incorporated into Christ...brothers and sisters in the Lord.'"
