Please keep a dear friend of mine in your prayers. Dave is a young man in his mid-twenties, recently married and the father of a gorgeous little baby girl. A graduate of Ave Maria University, he is in the hospital with a collapsed lung and the doctor is inserting a tube today. The poor man has been suffering from chronic respiratory problems. I had the honor of witnessing his marriage and baptizing his baby. My mother is godmother to the bambina. Please offer a rosary or at least a decade if you can sometime today. We are praying to Blessed John Paul II for a complete and total recovery. I have been friends with his wife and her family for 15 years and am godfather to her brother. They are like my second family. So I ask everyone who reads this blog to keep this young man and new husband and father in your prayers this weekend. Thank you and God bless you and Mary keep you.
