Subject: Prayer Request for Fr. Adrian
May 14, 2015
Dear Benedictine Family,
Early this morning our beloved priest, Father Adrian, fell and fractured his C6 vertebra. He is resting in stable condition at St. Mary’s Hospital and will have surgery this evening. We ask that you give him time to rest for now, we will update you when he is able to welcome visitors and phone calls. In the charity of your prayers, please pray for Father’s speedy and complete recovery. Let us also pray for the doctors caring for him, his family, and his brother monks.
O Almighty God, giver of health and healing, grant to Fr. Adrian such a sense of your presence that he may have perfect trust in you. In all of his sufferings may he cast his care upon you, so that, enfolded in your love and power, he may receive health and salvation according to your gracious will. Through Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen.
Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved; for Thou art my praise—Jer. 17:14

Father Adrian came through the surgery well and is in good spirits. He probably cannot receive visitors at this time, so let’s honor his wishes.
