Mark, I am begging your readers for their prayers. My 17 year old son was severely injured in a car accident last Thursday. He has massive head trauma. He is currently in his 4th neuro surgery. We have very little medical hope for his survival, and none for a full recovery, so we are praying for a miracle. People are praying for us around the world and I would beg your readers to join them. The horribleness of this experience has been transformed into an occasion of grace and blessing through the outpouring of love and support we have experienced. Please ask for prayers for him.
Father, hear our prayers for this boy’s complete healing in body, soul, mind, and spirit through Christ our Lord. Give grace, knowledge, understanding, skill and compassion to his caregivers and grace, mercy, peace and strength to all who love him. Grant them a miracle to the glory of your Name. Mother Mary, St. Luke, Fulton Sheen, and Fr. Joseph Fulton, pray for him!

Dominic was hospitalized yesterday for weakness and numbness in his legs. He collapsed at work and at home because he could not support his weight. The neurologist has diagnosed Guillain-Barré syndrome, which causes creeping paralysis if left untreated. His legs and arms are involved right now. He will be in intensive care for 5 days on the treatment, and then we will reassess. Seriousness and duration will not be known for a while. Please continue to pray.
Father, we ask for complete healing for Dominic through your Son Jesus Christ. Give grace, knowledge, understanding, skill and compassion to his caregivers and grace, mercy, peace and strength to all who love him. Do all this to the glory of your Name. Mother Mary, St. Luke, Fulton Sheen, and Fr. Joseph Fulton, pray for him!
