As I've mentioned, on Monday evenings I go to our community supper. I've made several friends there, including an older fellow who is a Korean War vet, so I'm assuming he's in his 80s. His name is Emil. He went into hospital about a week and a half ago for knee replacement surgery. Normally, in these days, it's pretty minor, but with the elderly, any surgery can be dangerous.
I heard this evening that his kidneys have shut down. We were hoping one of his children would show up so we could find out more, but none did, which is disconcerting.
Please, of your charity, offer your prayers for his well being, both physical and spiritual. If you're not the praying sort, please send warm, supportive thoughts his way.

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
