Please pray for the repose of the soul of my cousin Dan McGuire. Dan had lived in California for much of his adult life and was originally from our hometown of Lafayette IN. He passed yesterday from brain cancer. Ask the Lord to receive him in Paradise and to console his wife, children and grandchildren. Please pray for my wife Julie as she prepares to leave Saturday for a six week fellowship, spending 4 wks studying Byzantine iconography with Deacon Charles Rohrbacher in Alaska. She will then spend two weeks, with our son Nick, in California. Please let this be a positive experience for both and we beg St Christopher's intercession for their safe travels. Please pray for our daughter Kathy who will be heading off to CYO summer camp in 2 wks. Pray that it be a time of fellowship and fun.
We also offer our thanks and praise to God for helping Nick nail his spring classes. He pulled down an A and two Bs. He has also gotten an A in one summer school class and is working on another. I also ask for your continued prayers as Kathy and I prepare to relocate to Kansas. As if all this wasn't complicated enough, I may be heading for my third sinus surgery. I am not looking forward to that. I pray for peace in the world, for the healing of mind and body of recent victims of Muslim terror and for the Lord's beneficent blessings on the Christians in the Middle East. May we, too, be protected in this life from the work of the Devil and those who would be in his service.
As always, I pray for your needs and petitions. God bless.
