Begging your indulgence, Praying in PA needs a little spiritual assistance for peace-making in her current edit-war on Wikipedia’s Pope Francis page, but in interests of humility (the remedy of which is always a shout-out to ‘ad majorem dei gloriam’) my request is
“… for all Wikipedia contributors active on the Pope Francis page, that they seek the Truth as asked of us to the greater glory of God by our dearly-beloved Holy Father and work to resist the greatest danger of our times, the tyranny of relativism.”
Father, hear our prayer through your Son Jesus Christ. Mother Mary and St. Thomas, pray for those defending the truth.

I just wanted to give you and your readers an update on the boy I wrote about a few days ago with the brain tumor. The surgery took longer than expected because the tumor was larger than the doctors originally thought. But everything went well and they think they got it all. Next he will be undergoing chemo and radiation. The request from his family is to please pray he recovers well, with no complications, & that he will be able heal completely. His mom is asking for prayers through the intercession of Blessed John Paul II.
Father, thank you for a successful surgery. Hear our prayer for a swift and complete recovery for this child. Continue to guide and help his caregivers in giving him excellent care. Continue to give his family the grace, peace, and strength they need (and the finances) to weather this storm. Mother Mary, St. Luke and Blessed John Paul, pray for him. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen!
