1) The family of my college friend Eloy Luis Bello who died in his sleep in Ottowa after suffering a stroke.
2) Sr. Eileen McCann from the US Bishops’ Conference staff whose Father died this week.
3) My mother who has caught pneumonia and is now hospitalized. She’s 80 years old so that’s fairly serious.
4) A safe return home for Fr. Dave Dwyer this weekend after a lot of fund raising in Colorado and the LA Congress.
5) Birthday prayers for three college friends: Michelle Gillan Larkin, Mike “Crash” Caragliano, and Victor “Tiny Bubbles” Mendoza.
And for what else should we pray?
