On this Sunday at Mass your urgent prayers and donations are requested for our good friend, Andrew Rivera!

Dear Friends,

Andrew Rivera has been a friend of mine for many years. He has been a collaborator with me on the organization of many Masses in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite across the Greater Toronto Area. He is known to many here both in the diocesan traditional community and the Society of St. Pius X. Andrew is a single father of a five-year-old boy, pictured with him above, his wife having passed away three years ago.

Just after Easter, Andrew had a serious attack and went into a diabetic coma. The next few weeks were like an episode of House (without the cursing and such). Every time I spoke with his mother there was another issue. Infection. Kidney failure and dialysis and the usual things and indignities that accompany such a situation. The most shocking and profound was a stroke caused by clots that can happen due to inactivity. (No jab here folks, so let's leave that one alone). However, it turns out that the cause of the clots may have been a previously undetected "hole in the heart." more properly known as an atrial septal defect and is from birth. In addition to this, there is ongoing neuropathy from the stroke.

Tomorrow morning, Monday, September 18, Andrew will have PFO Closure surgery. Please remember Andrew today at Mass and in your prayers, that God will guide the surgeon's hands so that all will be well and grant a full recovery in all these things to Andrew.

Now, the recovery from this is going to add to the other maladies. It is simply not known when Andrew will be able to return to work.

Thus, I am asking you to be generous with our fundraising campaign.

Your help is most appreciated, Andrew has seen all the data from the GiveSendGo and you are all in his prayers.

God bless you.

Report: Frank Walker of Canon212 suffers a stroke!

Ann Barnhardt is reporting the following:

"Gina Walker just let us know that Frank had a stroke Thursday night. He is heavily sedated in ICU. The prognosis is for a full recovery, but it’s going to be a long road back. So, we’re all going to be without Frank’s amazing service and hard work of combing the web for every interesting link for a while."

Frank has been a good friend of this blog. His work on Canon212 has been valuable.

Let us pray that Frank has a full recovery.

God bless you, Frank.
