Dear Friends in Christ,
I would like to wish all of you a most holy and blessed Divine Mercy Sunday! It is a great day for praying for God’s Infinite Mercy to be poured out on people who are separated from the Lord by their sins, and for receiving God’s Mercy for healing and purification for ourselves as well. I hope that each and every one of you will take full advantage of the great graces offered by the Lord on Divine Mercy Sunday.
Please keep the two retreats that I have scheduled for this May in your prayers: I will be presenting the Confraternity spirituality to Rachel’s Vineyard retreat veterans in Kelowna, British Columbia on the weekend of May 13-15, and to another group of RV veterans in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on the following weekend of May 20-22. Please pray for me and for all those making these two retreats.
Another prayer request is that our Assistant Spiritual Director, Fr. Jim Costigan (also a member of the Fathers of Mercy), has been struggling with skin infections (fungal, and then at least 3 different bacterial infections) for 5-6 weeks. He has spent over two weeks in the hospital during this time, and even though he is home now, he is still in a lot of pain and discomfort. Please pray for a rapid recovery from Fr. Jim — he really wants to get back on his feet and in the saddle of his priestly ministry soon!!
Thank you, and God bless all of you! I hold each of you in my daily prayers and Masses.
Fr. Ben Cameron, CPM
