A Priest Forever

My priest friend is making a slow but steady recovery from his major surgery.

He told me about an event that moved him today. The nun who has been bringing him Holy Communion each day (I know, I know...) asked him if he could see another patient. He walked gingerly to see the frightened old chap who was having drastic surgery done that day and even though feeling pretty rotten himself, administered the Sacrament of the Sick to the old chap.

God uses us, but especially His priests, even in our frailty.

Paulinus,

Ny regards to Father in his troubles. May God grant him a speedy recovery.

The Sacranet of the Sick really should be more accessible than it is. Bit of a hot button.
