Please continue to pray for Dr. Rob Susil, son in law of my friends George & Joan Weigel. He continues to fight for his life this morning having survived a harrowing night but his condition is still grave.

I recommend praying as well for the intercession of John Paul II as George is the author both of his biography (Witness to Hope) and the soon to be released "Pope John Paul II -- The Struggle for Freedom, the Last Years, the Legacy."

John Paul the Great, pray for him!
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for him!
Saints of God, pray for him!
All holy men and women, pray for him!

Totus Tuus!


  1. Have prayed for Dr. Rob and will continue.

  2. To each of you: Many Thanks! It is my understanding that Rob is still in the fight, but the odds are still stacked against him. He is on a ventilator and the cancer has spread to both his lungs. Yet, the doctors are not giving up hope, and neither is his family. This means something since his wife, Gwyneth is also an MD (they met in Med School). His family is also a family of deep faith, a gift that George and Joan passed along to their children.

    Let keep up with what George calls, our "turbo-prayers" on Rob's behalf.

  3. Fr. Tim, you might want to share the prayer that the Susils are praying for Rob's cure to Servant of God Jerzy Ciesielski, JPII's closest lay friend who was a research scientiest and professor with a PhD in engineering.

    Prayer for the Beatification of the Servant of God Jerzy Ciesielski:

    Almighty God, our merciful Father, as you gave your servant Jerzy Ciesielski a special grace of fidelity to Christ in his professional work and his family life, grant that, through his intercession, my family and I may be strengthened to bear Christian witness in daily life. I pray that, through his intercession, you might also give me the special grace I ask today, the total and complete cure of Rob Susil, so that your servant Jerzy may be raised to teh glories of the altar. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Sisters of Life

Here is an excellent website for any and all interested in the pro-life cause. The Sisters of Life are a religious order than began in New York City under the authority of Cardinal Jon O'Connor (RIP) in the 1980's. Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join
