Prayer Request

A reader writes:

I’ve never written to you, but I know you often include prayer requests on your blog. I hope you will ask your readers to kindly pray for St. John Vianney parish in Hacienda Heights, CA (Archdiocese of Los Angeles). The church was destroyed over the weekend by what appears to be arson. The parish community is truly devastated. See here for the story.

Father, hear our prayer that St. John Vianney parish rise from the ashes through Christ our Phoenix and that and it’s people become stronger than ever in forgiveness and charity toward the person who did this despicable thing. Mother Mary, pray for this parish.
