Dedicated to Fr. Francis Mary Stone

Thou Art A Priest Forever
To live in the midst of the world, without wishing its pleasures;
To be a member of each family, yet belonging to none;
To share all sufferings; to penetrate all secrets; to heal all wounds;
To go from men to God and offer Him their Prayers;
To return from God to men; to bring pardon and hope;
To have a heart of fire for charity and a heart of bronze for chastity;
To teach and to pardon, console and bless always--
What a glorious life! And it is yours, O Priest of Jesus Christ!

We need you Fr. Get back to work!

Yes, definately prays for him, I miss his reflections upon the Word of God, and hope that he gets back to work soon.

Has there been any update on him, D? I watched the "announcement" Life on the Rock episode with my oldest daughter last Nov. and we were both so sad...we'd met him in 2006 at the anniversary weekend, and he was very kind to us. I think about and pray for him each week.

There hasn't been any update. Let's keep storming heaven with prayer.

Still gathering people for prayer here on Long Island to pray in Adoration for Fr. Francis Mary Stone. I encourage all to do the same.
In Him,
