|“Let us #PrayTogether for the elderly, especially those who are isolated or in rest homes and are afraid of dying alone. They are our roots. They gave us the faith, tradition, and a sense of belonging. Let us pray that the Lord might be near to them.” -Pope Francis|
|PRAYERS FOR OUR ELDERLY & FOR FR. SEBAHAR|
In communion with the Holy Father, and his beautiful reflection, today in a special way we lift up in our prayers all the elderly in our lives and those in our parish.
We also invite you to pray for our beloved Pastor Emeritus, Fr. John Sebahar, who will be in surgery today to receive a pacemaker in order to remedy some of the heart problems he has been experiencing.
If you would like to send him a get well note, it may be addressed to him at:
Rev. John Sebahar
St. John Vianney Residence
1464 Green Trails Dr., Apt. 5
Naperville, IL 60540

Dynamic Catholic is offering a new video, Finding Calm in the Midst of a Storm.
In it, Jack Beers discusses the importance of embracing this moment, turning to God
with faith instead of fear, and trying every day to live these four words from the Our Father:
“Thy will be done.”
