Prayer request

I'm asking for prayers for the priest of my new church, Fr. John from Holy Trinity OC in Kansas. He had been having stomach pains, and now they've determined that he has a tumor in his pancreas. It isn't the extremely fast-spreading and indestructible kind of cancer (thank God!), but a very rare type that isn't quite as dangerous but unfortunately isn't quite as well-known and understood. So tests proceed to determine the best course of action, but in the meantime, he's in substantial pain since the tumor is pressing on some nerves. Please pray for him and his wife, and also for our church.

Thank you, brothers and sisters.

Thank you so much. Fr. John says that he can feel all the prayers being said for him. I've heard other people in his situation say the same. God is good.

Is that Fr. John Mack?

In any case, Lord have mercy...

No. This is Fr. John Platko. I forgot that Fr. John Mack is in Kansas as well -- I probably should have specified. Fr. John Mack is at St. Sophia in Lawrence, KS.

Don't let him give up - my father lived 16 good years after his pancreatic cancer diagnosis.
