A Message from Al Kresta

Dear friends and partners,

We’ve postponed our Spring membership drive because now is the best time to teach the faith, encourage the anxious, exhort the weary and preach good news without interruption. Our financial need, however, remains as urgent as ever. Please hit the Donate button and contribute as generously as the Lord has enabled you.  Also, ask for the intercession of our patroness, Blessed Mary, ever virgin who, in birthing God’s Son became the first to transmit the Word of God to the world.  Pray that we imitate her in offering Christ Jesus, the Eternal Word of God to the world.

Peace In Him,

Al

My friends, I’ve never needed you more.

Many of you have heard by now that Dan and I tested positive for COVID-19 last week and have been very sick. Dan always knew that he was in the high-risk category and that if he contracted this virus it could be difficult to recover

As the illness has progressed Dan’s condition has in fact worsened, and he is now in the ICU on a ventilator. He is fighting for his life.

He is not fighting alone.

I am asking you with everything in me to please storm heaven for my husband.

God has raised armies before and He has raised one now. He has been preparing us for this moment from the time you joined our ranks and learned with us, side-by-side, the wield the most powerful weapon we have: prayer.

I am begging you to stop what you are doing right now and to say what Mother Teresa called a “Flying Memorare”: 9 Memorares in a row for an intention. Short, powerful, Marian.

Remember that in the Gospels, before he worked healing miracles, Jesus asked, “What is it that you want?”

With that in mind, please pray very specifically that Dan’s lungs will clear and begin to breathe on their own. Pray that God will be glorified through a full recovery and the complete restoration of his health.

Thank you in advance. I will keep you updated.

United with you in prayer,

Stephanie Burke
