Mtn Community please pray for my friends Paul, Kirsten and their older brother Dave. David's son, David Jr, died suddenly in his sleep Saturday night in Chicago while with his girlfriend. David Jr's body has been flown home back here in the east. It's been a devastating shock to the parents, girlfriend and family members. RIP David Jr and may perpetual light shine upon you now and forever and may your parents be consoled by Mary, Mother of God, with her eternal healing presence. Thank you.

Please pray for me and all those suffering through anxiety, depression and all forms of mental illness.
I am thankful to God for the good days, and ask for God's strength and mercy on the difficult days. Pray for the Holy Spirit to inspire those with mental health issues to reach out to JUST ONE PERSON. It doesn't make a person weak, it makes them strong!
Through God's Love and help from family, friends and professionals, there IS a sunrise even after the darkest night.
Pax Et Bonum,
A proud SBU Alum

For the elderly and frail, especially my parents who are trying to remain independent.
For teens and all who suffer from bullying and threats, especially my daughter, that the strength of St Michael be their defense and comfort.
For all who mourn great loss, that the darkness that surrounds them now is pierced by the light of God’s love

As Pentecost Sunday approaches, please join me in giving thanks to the most Holy Spirit of our Lord for those men and women who have responded, in faith and humility, to “making all things new” by living out a Franciscan charism through the ministries of Mt Irenaeus, through Franciscan Sojourners, or through profession to the Secular Franciscan Order.
“O most blessed Light divine,
May that light within us shine
And our inmost being fill!”

Please pray for my physical health, as I continue to suffer from arthritis, diabetes and other problems, including now my difficulty seeing out of my right eye. Please, I don't want to go blind. I ask God to restore my vision, so that I can use my artistic talent for spiritual healing.
