When I was at Mayo I had abdominal surgery, since my intestines were not
getting blood. The problem somehow corrected itself and all is well with
that.  Now though, I have an incisional hernia.  Dr. Skemp says it's likely
that some stitches gave way, and that this is not uncommon. So, I'll be
having surgery to repair the hernia.  It's scheduled for 18 November, likely
at 7:30 a.m. Dr. Skemp says I should plan to be in the hospital for two or
three days.  He also says I probably won't be able to Celebrate Mass
publically for two or three weeks. Keep me in your prayers and know you're
remembered in mine as well!

St. Elizabeth of Hungary (1207-1231)
In her short life Elizabeth manifested such great love for the poor and
suffering that she has become the patroness of Catholic charities and of the
Secular Franciscan Order. The daughter of the King of Hungary, Elizabeth
chose a life of penance and asceticism when a life of leisure and luxury
could easily have been hers. This choice endeared her in the hearts of the
common people throughout Europe. At the age of 14 Elizabeth was married to
Louis of Thuringia (a German principality), whom she deeply loved; she bore
three children. Under the spiritual direction of a Franciscan friar, she led
a life of prayer, sacrifice and service to the poor and sick. Seeking to
become one with the poor, she wore simple clothing. Daily she would take
bread to hundreds of the poorest in the land, who came to her gate. For

But Zacchaeus stood there and said to the Lord, "Behold, half of my
possessions, Lord, I shall give to the poor, and if I have extorted anything
from anyone I shall repay it four times over." And Jesus said to him, "Today
salvation has come to this house because this man too is a descendant of
Abraham. For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save what was lost."
~Luke 19:1-10

Jesus is merciful. How privileged we are to have a God who is so forgiving.
If we are to walk in the footsteps of Jesus, we need to be forgiving as
well.  May God be with us to give us the grace of forgiveness.

I pray that I may accept the Lord's forgivenes.  I pray for the grace to
forgive others as God forgives me.

We pray for unity in our country and that we may build a Culture of Life. We
pray for the safety of our troops, their safe return and their families at
home.  We pray for a deep and profound respect for life, and for the courage
and willingness to stand up for life. We pray for one another, for those who
have asked our prayers and for those who need our prayers the most. Have a
good day!

May God Bless you and those you love, and keep you safe!
