Please pray for Fr. Jean Francelome Dumas, a young priest in Haiti (he serves along with our close friend, Fr. Louis Merosne) who was severely injured in a car accident on his way back to his parish to celebrate a marriage. The doctors gave him 5% chance to live. They need to med-evac him to Miami right now. We need all the help we can get. Please pray and spread this request. Thank you!
Father, grant him a miracle of healing if it is your will. If not, grant him the grace of a happy death. Give his caregivers skill, wisdom and compassion and give all who love him grace, peace, and strength. Mother Mary, St. Jude and St. Luke, pray for them. We ask through Christ our Lord. Amen!

Please pray for my friend’s dad. He is an alcoholic and has been in bad health for a while. Last Thursday he was unable to walk and was taken to the emergency room. I haven’t been able find out any more info since then. I want to see if my uncle (a priest) could give him the Sacraments (my friend’s dad is a lapsed Catholic), but I need to get ahold of my friend first and so far I’ve had no luck.
Also, please pray for my cousin who is being deployed to Afghanistan.
Father, hear our prayer that this man receive the help he needs and that the man being deployed to Afghanistan serve well and be kept safe from harm. Father, hear our prayer through Jesus Christ our Lord.
