I need prayers!


I've been discharged from the hospital after a sudden illness that befell me on Sunday evening. I feel like death warmed over and have been ordered to keep myself isolated for the next 7-10 days (with 4 X daily trips back to the hospital for Ventolin treatments). 

PLEASE remember me in your prayers as I struggle to get back on my feet.

Thank you.

Fr. Tim


  1. Out-patient Ventolin four times a day? I don't like the sound of that, Tim. Please tell us it's not COPD!

    And you have my version of prayer, as always, with an extra boost.

  2. I sure hope you feel better real soon Fr. Tim.

  3. Actually, the doctors were surprised that it was not COPD as I am a smoker. It's a return of something that afflicted me as a child: an inability of my immune system to respond to infections. Last year I was put into isolation at the hospital when I was diagnosed with H1N1 - only to surprise them then when the virus was later diagnosed as the plain old run of the mill seasonal flu which my body didn't fight against.

    Back then, my mother (an RN) used to describe it as my lacking the cancer gene - that trigger of an out of portion response that grew into a malignancy.

    It hasn't been an issue for me since I hit adolescence, but prior to that I used to receive a penicillin shot three times a week as a prophylactic - until that is I went into an full out allergic reaction - because even the slightest cut would inevitably become infected and the simplest cold was a major health event. I very much hope that I am not revisiting those days. They are NOT remembered fondly.

    As a friend of mine would say.... 'jeesh!'

  4. Hey, Fr Tim, hope you're feeling better real soon. Prayers, Julie

  5. Tim,

    I will pray for you also. Those kinds of things are no fun. I thought you had been kind of quiet on here lately and was beginning to wonder what was going on.

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
