Early next week I will be heading to the Holy Land as part of a team of Catholic journalists who will be touring most of Christendom’s holiest sites, and also encountering the Holy Father during his time in Jerusalem.
You regular readers know I do not travel well, so please pray for me, particularly that I might survive that long, tightly-packed-in flight without stroking out, getting deep vein thrombosis or whatever.
Please pray for Pope Francis, too, whose itinerary is public, and who appears to be determined to demonstrate trust in the Lord in ways that scream for prayer.
As ever, be discreet. You needn’t put your business out there. “For my intentions” or something similar will do, although if you want to give first names, too, that’s fine.
Seriously, please pray for me. My last trip overseas was an e-coli nightmare.
