I live in Steubenville and our family belongs to the diocese. Prayers up! Out of curiosity, where did he fall?

"Yesterday while on his way to the Perpetual Adoration chapel at their parish church in Steubenville, Fr Ray fell on the steps and suffered very serious injuries." The parish church in question was St Peter's, the largest church in the city, right downtown. Apparently the entrance to the Adoration Chapel is outside & down a flight of stairs. Ruth was with him. According to Sandi it was very distressing - he was badly injured and instantly knocked out. The ambulance was there in less than 5 minutes and straight to the ER at Trinity West, but his condition remains critical.

I'm thinking he was born around 1925, which would make him around 89-90. He and Ruth and 5 children , 22 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren. He's also got books, tapes and I think videos on YouTube. And thousands of former students to whom he is/was a real spiritual father. A prolific, brilliant, and deeply, tenderly-loving man. His heart is the Lord's, all the way. Here and hereafter. Amen.
