Urgent Prayer Request

Fr. Jim Erving needs our prayers badly. His sister writes:

Mark, this is Liz Gonzalez, Fr Jim Erving’s sister in Roma TX. I am writing to ask for your very seriously powerful prayers for my brother. He started to not feel well just last Sunday, blanking out for a while during all of his homilies and having some arm tremors. Went to family doctor Monday. MRI Tuesday, results Wednesday evening. He has a frontal lobe brain tumor, golf ball sized, about 1 1/2 inches deep. Seizures have gotten progressively worse during this week. He has been admitted in McAllen for surgery, which will probably be Tuesday. Please pray pray pray Mark. Thank you. God bless.

Father, hear our prayer for Fr. Jim’s complete healing from this tumor, that he may return to his vital work among your people and bring glory to your Name for many years to come. Give his caregivers grace, compassion, wisdom, knowledge, skill, and the proper technology to assist in his healing. Give him, his parish, his family and all who love him your grace, peace, strength, consolation, faith, hope and love. And may all his sufferings and the sufferings of those who love him go toward building up the body of Christ in union with our Lord Jesus, crucified and risen. Mother Mary, St. Luke, and St. Peregrine, pray for him. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

    Hello Mr. Shea, I’ve checked your blog to look for an update regarding the progress of Fr. Jim Erving, O.M.I., of Our Lady of Refuge parish in Roma, Texas. Not finding one, I checked online for the parish bulletin … none online. I phoned Fr.’s parish and found that today (Friday) he had a third surgery. The staff did not know the outcome. Please ask folks to continue their prayers for this blessed man of God. Thank you, and those who pray for others, for your/their charity and kindness.

    Fr. Jim is recovering from a second surgery about two weeks ago to remove a second tumor. He is rehabbing well but slowly and is in desperate need of your prayers. For more information please visit:
