frmichaelRev. Michael Messner, the pastor of Sacred Heart in Lancaster Pennsylvania, a church where two Daughters of St. Paul grew up, is in critical condition after a serious fall from a second floor balcony. Pieces of a broken railing were found around him and Father Michael was discovered lying on the ground between 3:30 and 4AM early Sunday morning.

Please keep Father Michael in your prayers.

Let’s just take a moment to pray a Hail Mary for his recovery:

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you;
blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners
now and at the hour of our death.



February 28, 2015: Father Michael is still in critical condition, see this article for more information and please continue to pray for his recovery.

March 6, 2015: Father Michael’s condition is still very serious but he is showing small signs of improvement. See this article for more information.

April 2, 2015: Recent news updates are looking up. Apparently, Father Michael is now walking and talking. He still uses a feeding tube and is in need of serious rehabilitation therapy but the prospects seem to look better for recovery.

Thank you for joining me in prayer for this intention.

Please continue to pray for Father Michael’s recovery.

In fact, let’s say a prayer right now:

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass
against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
