    Monsignor John Scully died Friday while consecrating the bread and wine at an 8 a.m. Mass at St. Stephen Catholic Church. He had been a priest for 62 years. "It was precisely how he wished to go and would have scripted it had we any power over the time of our death," Bishop Robert Lynch wrote on his blog. Scully, 86, was a priest in residence at the Valrico church. He was born and raised in Boston, and will be buried there next to his parents, Lynch said. Scully did many things during his decades as a priest in Florida....

My family in the Bay Area is large and they will be doing everything humanly possible to care for them in these trying times but prayers are always welcome....

    Some months ago we posted a prayer request for Cathy, a very sick mother of two small children who was widowed 3 years ago. Cathy was readmitted to a local hospital with failing kidneys. The toll on her body has hit a critical and near fatal turn the other night. Cathy's kidneys are not able to get rid of enough body fluids resulting in a potassium level that caused her heart to stop beating. It is unclear how long she was dead in her room. She was defibrillated and bought back but is unable to breath on her own, in...

    I am asking everyone to pray 15 minutes a day everyday by yourself or with your family for protection for yourselves and your country. We have too much coming at us and we need God's help. I think everyone has an extra 15 mins a day where they could pray. What I saw on Sunday was not just a change but was evil. They used the unborn and spit in pro-lifer's faces as well as every American with this supposive healthcare bill. They can't stand up to God's might and prayer.

    If you are reading this, then this morning when your eyes opened you received the first blessing as well as the first miracle of the day. You have probably completed this simple act every day for the past 30, 50, or maybe 67 years or so, but nonetheless, it is still a gift that is not given freely or should be squandered as if it were an entitlement. Is there some deep psychological or religious analysis involved in this inquiry? Not so much. Simply put, there are at least one or two family members who we once cherished who are...

    I want to ask for your prayers for a very courageous young girl, Mary Jo D. Mary Jo was diagnosed with brain cancer about 9 years ago when she was 6. She went through it very well and after brain surgery, chemo, and radiation therapy, was pronounced cancer free after about a year. The plus side of this is that her father, who had been an agnostic, came to know Christ and God has shown His love to him. Then about a year and a half ago Mary Jo began complaining of headaches again. The tumors were back and worse....

He broke another one, too, a few hours before, admitting a critical patient at the Huntsman Cancer Hospital without first directing him through the emergency room at University Hospital, according to protocol. Steve Call, an attending physician at the Huntsman that night, received a phone message at 7 p.m. from another doctor about a cancer patient who was in dire condition. The doctor asked if his patient could come in directly. Call relented, although...

Turns out she had E. coli poisoning, which led to kidney failure, dialysis, and they're still trying to knock out the infection in her blood. I'm praying that she pulls through this. She's been moved to ICU, where she's getting better care. Her blood pressure is still low, and she's on O2. Please, friends, I ask that you lift her up in prayer for her healing. Thank you.

Little Richard, now 76, is recovering at a Vanderbilt University hospital after undergoing hip surgery. In a post to his official Myspace page, a spokesperson has said that although the surgery was successful, the veteran rocker is still in a lot of pain. "Please be praying for a quick and full recovery. He may have a long road ahead of him (i.e. physiotherapy) because he waited so long to have the surgery." Little Richard, a long-time born-again Christian, is asking his fans...

She had to have a mastectomy 2 years ago because of breast cancer. We were told that it was in her lymph nodes and she went through all of the recommended chemo and radiation. Everything looked good as far as the cancer was concerned. She seemed to be doing well. Last year on election day she had a mild stroke. Apparently, the chemo had damaged her heart which resulted in a stroke. She has...

She had been admitted to the hospital last night after side-effects from her first chemotherapy treatment earlier this week, as a precaution against the recurrence of a very aggressive form of cancer that was surgically removed two months prior. This morning, she suffered total cardiac and respiratory arrest, and as the result of anoxia, her higher brain function and internal organs began...
