Prayer Request

Hello Everyone,

I have a special prayer request today. Fox news reported on a priest from Indiana who had been sent by Rome to study in Greece. Apparently that priest's life had been threatened. As he was trying to escape from Greece with his translator, he called his family and told them that if they didn't hear from him within the next 12 - 24 hours, then they should presume he's been killed. That was on Monday and no one has heard from him since.

It just so happens that this priest, a Fr. Kappes, was not only my high school Latin teacher (he offered Latin classes for the local home schoolers), but was also a good family friend and my mother's spiritual director. Please pray for his safe return; and if God has called him into eternity, then please pray for his blessed repose. Knowing this priest, it wouldn't surprise me to discover that he'd been martyred preaching the truth of Christ.

  1. Will do, brother. If he, indeed, passed, then may his memory be eternal.
