Pray for Father Groeschel

Please pray for Fr. Benedict Groeschel of the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal. According to reports from EWTN, he has been critically injured in an automobile accident. Well-known by the world-wide EWTN audience, Fr. Groeschel, especially through his television series and books, has had a tremendous impact upon my faith, indeed, my conversion to Catholicism.

For the Advent and Christmas season, I read through his book of meditations upon this season of the Church, Behold, He Comes. He always has beautiful things to say which increase your faith and draw you deeper into a living relationship with our Savior. He has recently helped revive a wonderful apostolate which was initially started by St. Catherine of Genoa. The Oratory of Divine Love, is an apostolate of prayer and piety which Fr. Groeschel hopes will have the same impact upon our century as it did upon the 16th century. Church historians point to the prayer groups which were started by St. Catherine as the seeds for the true reformation and renewal of the Church.
