The Pastor of my parish has been very ill. He has kidney cancer and when my mom went to choir practice last night she was told that he was "within days of dying, possibly hours". We have cleaned this good priest's rectory and church for many years and a more dedicated and reverential priest you will not find anywhere. He poured himself out for his parishioners despite having heart problems and cancer. He just stopped saying Mass a few weeks ago, which gives you an idea of his deep love for Christ. I ask my friends who visit my blog today if they could say a Hail Mary for a peaceful passing for this very special man. I appreciate and thank you ahead of time for all your prayers during his final moments here on earth.
I place Father Kelly into your hands. Cradle this holy servant of yours in your most merciful Heart. Lord, I ask that you send your sweet mother to hold his precious hands during these final moments of his journey here on earth. Yes, may our dearest Mother hold his beautiful hands which always held you so reverentially during the Holy Mass, just as Our Lady held you so often with such immense love during your lifetime. Thank you, Jesus. I love you and I praise your Holy Name. Amen
