The Marianist Community requests your prayers for the healing of Fr. Thomas Cardone through the intercession of Our Lady and Blessed William Joseph Chaminade. Earlier this morning, Fr. Thomas underwent surgery to repair serious bleeding in his small intestine. He remains in critical condition and in need of many prayers for healing. Please join the Brothers in asking our Blessed Founder to intercede for Fr. Thomas.
O Lord, you are constantly at work in your Church
and, through individuals and communities,
you manifest your Spirit for the good of your people.
In a special way you bestowed your spirit on your Servant,
Blessed William Joseph Chaminade
so that he might live fully according to the Gospel
and with love devote himself to your saving work.
You have inspired communities of men and women
to follow his example by consecrating themselves to you
to serve the Church under the leadership of Mary.
We now pray to you to give us visible signs
of your grace and holiness in his life by granting us
the special favors we ask through his intercession
for the healing of Fr. Thomas Cardone,
a faithful Marianist missionary of Mary.
May the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit
be glorified in all places through the Immaculate Virgin Mary. Amen.
