Prayer Request from Fr. Z.

Go on over to Father Z's blog and read the prayer request for a 2 year old stricken with stage 4 cancer.

Here is his post:

A personal favour. Could you please ask prayers for young Joseph. He is a 2 and a half year old boy of friends of mine … and is the 7th of 8 children. Yesterday afternoon it was discovered that Joe has Category 4 Cancer, the worst. Without a miracle, and barring a misdiagnosis, he may not have long to live. He and his mother are at this moment weaving their way back to the US for treatment.

Please ask all your readers to pray for this family, devotees of the older form of the Mass, who are suffering this ordeal and for Joseph’s cure if it be the Lord’s will.


The poor father has decided to go along with Mum and Dad and Joe and they are at present overnight in ___. Today Joe was sleeping while his Dad was crying along beside him. He awoke, he is 2 and a half, and asked his Dad why he was crying? ‘Don’t you see the two angels standing next to the bed. They are bewdiful’ He said.

They then left and told Joe they would be back, and he told this to his dad. He is 2 and a half, and his father had not recently spoken at all about angels! The prayers seem to be working, let’s keep them up.

They are seeking the intercession of Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta for a miracle cure. Nice. I had thought about it and asked if his mother had thought of asking anyone in particular and she said Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta came to mind.

Go over to the post and post your commitment on the combox.

Remember to ask the intercession of Blessed Teresa. She loved children and I am hopeful that she would help little Joseph.

Lord Jesus Christ , You made Blessed Teresa an inspiring example of firm Faith and burning Charity, an extraordinary witness to the way of spiritual childhood, and a great and esteemed teacher of the value and dignity of every human life.

Grant that she may be venerated and imitated as one of the Church's canonized saints.
Hear the requests of all those who seek her intercession, especially the petition I now implore... (the miraculous healing from cancer of little Joseph).

May we follow her example in heeding Your cry of thirst from the Cross and joyfully loving You in the distressing disguise of the poorest of the poor, especially those most unloved and unwanted.

We ask this in Your Name and through the intercession of Mary, Your Mother and the Mother of us all. Amen.
