Prayer Request

A reader writes:

If you could pray for my mom I’d appreciate it. She’s 90 and has pneumonia and is in ICU right now on a ventilator. Thanks.

Father, hear our prayer for her comfort and healing, for grace, wisdom, skill and compassion for her caregivers and for grace, peace strength for all who love her. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Mother Mary and St. Luke, pray for her.

    Praying in PA – also for the spiritual vocation of his mom’s POA (if she made a living will) for grace, wisdom, skill and compassion with the caregivers and all who love her, especially for a happy death should our Lord call her home, that fear of death not succor an idolatry of technology. May I offer prayers also for the lowly housekeeping and catering staff in our healthcare and residential facilities, that their efforts to keep so many fatal bugs at bay continue to keep vulnerable souls in hygenic and dignified comfort?
