"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

I rarely ask for prayers ...



But I must take an elderly friend of mine for surgery today.

Please pray for him that all goes well.

He's not Catholic or religious - so he needs prayer for that as well.

Thanks very much.

  1. I have two Masses today, one in Monterey and the other in Santa Cruz, and will commend your friend to God at each. Your friend is blessed to have a friend like you, TJ. Fr P

  2. Prayers are with your friend. Your a good guy Terry, my Mom was in the hosptial last week and I really see more then ever how older people (sorry, I hate the word ELDERLY) really need an advocate with them when dealing with doctors, nurses, techs...what with hearing loss and getting flustered more easily when they were younger. Take care...(and take a book, hospitals take FOREVER to do anything.)

  3. Many thanks all of you - so far so good. Everything went well and now it's recovery time. Prayers and remembrance at the Masses much appreciated.

    Mack - I meditate and say my rosary - I hide it so no one knows. Then I close my eyes and I'm gone. I learned to do that in noisy churches praying before and after Mass.

  4. We do up to 10 Communion Services every Sunday night in the County Jail. When it comes time for the prayer requests, we will ask the inmates to pray for your friend and for you. There are about 200 in there right now, and the majority attend, and if they are not formally participating they can still see and hear everything. And next thing you know...in a couple of weeks there they are participating. Not all but they are exposed, and they hear and they see, and they are grateful. God bless your friend and you.
