Prayers for Fr. Frank Phillips - Founder, Superior of Order of St. John Cantius

Fr. Frank Phillips, left, with Cardinal George

In your charity, please pray for Fr. Frank Phillips.  He had surgery on a knee and has suffered some complications.  Some rumors were spread that he was in a coma and Father Z said that is not the case.  He writes:

Fr. Phillips is in the hospital. He is not doing well after knee-replacement surgery. As of 4:30 CST, he is in critical but stable condition.  There are some complications. 
Definitely not good, but not a “coma”. 
Do NOT call the parish for news.  They have plenty on their plate.  They will let me and others know what is going on.  Don’t play “telephone” and blow the story up into something that isn’t true. Okay? 
In your charity, pray for Fr. Phillips and for that good community.

For those who do not know, Fr. Phillips is the founder and superior of the blossoming community at St. John Cantius in Chicago.  Assumption Grotto has one parishioner there as a seminarian, now a brother in the order.  Fr. Phillips spoke at the Call to Holiness Conference this past fall.

On this Feast of the Presentation, may Mother Mary grant him a complete recovery, and a return to his community.
