Say a Prayer for Someone You Love

Say a Prayer for Someone You Love

Below are three very special gifts for you. The beautiful Get Well cards are much more than they might first appear. These cards are hope. They are prayer. They are healing. They are comfort.

The cards were designed in Belleville, Illinois for the sole intention of offering comfort to your loved ones in need of healing. The cards offer the recipient the priceless gift of prayer. Really! When you send us the recipients' name, he or she will be remembered in prayer by the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate here at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows and throughout the world. Prayer is a gift that never goes out of style and will be appreciated by all!

I will be sending one of the cards to my dear friend and fellow Oblate, Archbishop Roger Schwietz, O.M.I. who lives and works in Anchorage, Alaska. He recently suffered a minor heart attack and is in need of our prayers and support as he recovers.

The morning of his heart attack, Archbishop Schwietz experienced chest pains while preparing to celebrate Mass at St. Andrew Church in Eagle River. He was taken by ambulance to Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage where he received immediate cardiovascular care. Doctors found no obstructions but kept him at the hospital for observation.

Archbishop Schwietz recently had surgery to replace the aortic valve that was going bad. He's been instructed by his medical team to maintain a light schedule, not an easy feat for an Oblate!

"The good news is that the doctors did find out that I do, in fact, have a heart," he joked. "I really appreciate all the prayers."

I invite you to pray for Archbishop Schwietz' full recovery in a very special way. You can send him your well wishes. I will send your intentions to Archbishop Schwietz so he knows he is being remembered in prayer by so many Oblate friends.

Who in your life is in need of healing? Indeed, prayer works.

Prayer is powerful.

That's why I want to offer you the opportunity to support a loved one in need of healing. Show them love and support - while at the same time supporting the healing ministries of the Missionary Oblates.
