In your mercy, please...

Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, intercede for John

Stop and  say a prayer for a fellow secular Carmelite from out of state, John, who is having surgery on his aorta today.  This is very risky surgery. John has a wife, Mary, who is also a secular Carmelite, and who could use some prayerful support as could their four young children.

The Memorare 

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.

Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.

John made it through the surgery. The next 72 hours are critical so please keep up the prayers.
