St. John of God Comments

From the time he was eight to the day he died, John followed every impulse of his heart. The challenge for him was to rush to follow the promptings of the Holy Spirit gave him, not his own human temptations. But unlike many who act impulsively, when John made a decision, no matter how quickly, he stuck with it, no matter what the hardship. At eight years old, John heard a visiting priest speak of adventures that were waiting in the age of ... Continue Reading

    Dear St. John of God, patron saint to persons with heart issues, please watch over one of my best and closest of friends, Teresa Puglisi. She is going to have a procedure done in the next couple of days and could use a little help and prayer. This will be her third procedure for the same issue and with prayer and a wee bit o' luck of the Irish, her last one.

    Her friend Phil.

    Dear Saint,

    Don't you hear the cry of the Church in these trying moments of her history. Rush to her help as you rushed to help everyone who were in need of help without hesitating even for a second. Kindly rush to strengthen and enlighten the Cardinals to listen to the voice of Christ and cries of the faithful so that they choose a holy pope who would listen to the cries of the faithful and reform the church and restore her lost glory. Kindly pray for the Cardinals, Bishops and Priests that they walk the narrow path shown by Christ abandoning the wide path of this world in order to lead and guide the Catholic Church to Glory and Honor through our Lord Jesus Christ who is seated the right hand of power and intercede for us. Amen
