Of your charity...

...I bid your prayers for Fr. Laurence Wells. He is facing open heart surgery in January, and currently is being treated for bacterial endocarditis with a 4 to 6 week program of antibiotics.

Thanks to all for their prayers, which have truly sustained me. I spent nearly three weeks altogether in St Vincent's Hospital and River Garden Hebrew Home (a skilled nursing facility), and got released on Christmas Eve. Thanks to faithful lay readers and to Fr Michelangelo Burgos for keeping the lights on at St Michael and All Angels. I am still suffering imbalance and dizziness (a side effect from the medication, I am told) but am hoping and praying to be back at the Altar on Dec 30. Again, thanks to all for your kind prayers and good wishes, as I face the surgeon in mid-January
