Javier, a seminarian for the Diocese of Salina, KS, is in desperate need of prayers. He is critically ill with pneumonia and, barring a miracle, it does not appear as if he will make it. If you could please ask your readers to pray for him through the intercession of Fr. Emil Kaupan (also from Kansas). http://www.frkapaun.org/Thank you so much.
Father, hear our prayer for Javier that he be completely healed in body, soul, and spirit through our Lord Jesus Christ. Mother Mary, St. Luke, and Fr. Emil, pray for him and all who love him.
