Welcome to the Catholic Philopatrian Literary Institute
- My aunt in India has been diagnosed with leukemia. Please pray for her.
- Pray for William who is fighting covid right now he has 3 doctors overseeing him. He is on an ecmo machine that oxygenates his blood, he is heavily sedated not in a coma like they originally told his mom, they wake him a little to check brain function and he responds correctly. They will keep him sedated because he has tubes in his neck and awake it could be dangerous. The virus has now attacked his kidneys. He is critical so they won’t do anything that might stress his body worse,
- Please pray for complete healing for Robert S. who had a virus effect his liver, his wife is is very afraid for him. Please pray for the repose of the soul for Kevin who lost his life to cancer and for peace/comfort for his family.
- For Kelly & Nils Gjoja to be blessed with a baby. They have tried to get pregnant for a few years. She is 34 years old. Thank you
- Eustace Mita, and his employees for Divine Help and guidance during these rough times.
