Communio Sanctorum

Because the body is one, and we parts of it, when one suffers, we all suffer. When one rejoices, we all rejoice. [A rough paraphrase of Saint Paul]

Every good action we perform builds up the body; every sin diminishes it. So I would ask for you to pray for the following folks and groups:

The People of my three parishes, in particular the parish and finance councils, the members of my Catechism study program and Bible studies, the RE students, and the catechumen and candidates preparing for the sacraments at Easter.

The priests of the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City, especially those whose assignments will be changing this June, those who struggle to fulfill the mandate "Feed My Sheep," those who will be retiring, those who hold particular office, and of course, His Excellency the Archbishop.

Fr. Benedict Groeschel, as he recovers from his accident.

Those discerning vocations to the priesthood and religious life, especially those for the Archdiocese.

For the people of the Diocese of Wichita and those dioceses without an ordinary at this time.

I know that this will seem very POD to some, but necessary for all our conversions.
