Prayers Needed for An Acquaintance
  • There's a chum of mine who's going through a bit of a rough spot. Some recent romantic entanglements recently came to an abrupt end for him, and he's not taking it well - gone a bit off the deep end. Turning into a real John Jasper type, unfortunately, in terms of consumption. And he's made some comments recently that don't really reflect a lot of trust in divine providence . . .

    He's a decent musician, and if he really applied himself, he could do a lot of good in the parishes he serves. I just know that he really took this relation to heart, perhaps too much. And he could really use some prayers.

    You know, in Portugal, St. Anthony of Padua (or rather, St. Anthony of Lisbon - he's their homeboy) is the go-to saint for romantic troubles. And he's a friend of musicians.

    St. Anthony, pray for him!

  • Maureen, Lord knows he's already on my speed-dial for missing objects. There's a reason he's known as a miracle worker.
