Prayers for Bishop Mengeling

Please offer up many prayers on behalf of our Lansing bishop, Bishop Mengeling. Having been out of town the past few days, I am not up on all the details. From what I understand the bishop had emergency surgery Thursday evening where they found a large tumor on his bladder. I'm told they were unable to remove the entire tumor and recovery will be long.

Heavenly Father, we commend to You your most humble servant, Bishop Carl F. Mengeling, Bishop of Lansing. You, O Lord, know the plans You have set before him. We trust completely in your mercy and grace. We ask that You watch over our bishop and all those caring for him. Grant Bishop Mengeling peace, patience, and healing in whatever ways he needs them most and according to your holy will. These things we ask through Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Amen.

St. Peregrine, Patron of Cancer Victims, pray for us! Amen.

I would like to note that Bishop Mengeling is a friend to homeschoolers. If you own The Catholic Homeschool Companion, you'll find he wrote the foreword.

As Bishop Mengeling's niece, I would like to thank everyone for their prayers. We all know what a wonderful man he is and may God let him heal fast so that he may continue his great work. Thanks again and peace be with you all.
