Pray for Fr. Bill and All Ailing Priests

‎"My Dear Joe, I'm writing to let you know that I can no longer talk to you or Pete on the phone. My condition has weakened. The staff here at the manor are wonderful. I'm blessed to be able to offer daily Mass when I am able and also to counsel patients as well as administer the Sacrament of the Sick and Penance when needed. However, I am now fighting aspirating pneumonia and I have also developed a problem with swallowing that is permanent. My foods need to be pureed. Also, my overall condition has worsened and I've lost a lot of weight. My breathing is more labored. I would appreciate your continued prayers as I prepare to leave this world soon. Please be assured that you are in my heart and my prayers as are all who share in this ministry. I ask only that you would continue your good works! With much love and gratitude for all you do for us priests, Fr. Bill"

Fr. Bill is not from the Diocese of Honolulu. Thank you for your prayers for him and all our ailing priests.
