Dear Gordo:

Quote
I have friends that are very close to this situation, and the tragic thing is the Schindlers have been absolutely abandoned by the RC bishop and the clergy of their diocese. I'm not one to rush to judgement about clergy, but the bishop has specifically directed his priests not to even bring up this issue in their parishes, in addition to other directives which leave the Schindlers out in the cold. They even have to resort to receiving pastoral care from priests who are not from their diocese! (this was also mentioned in a recent Catholic World report.)

This is a disgrace, and has become a real battlefront in the war against the culture of death.
Is this factually true?

This is a grave accusation against the Bishop of St. Petersburg, FL, and the clergy of the entire diocese.

The legal principle of "subjudice" might partially explain the stance of the Bishop.

For Those in Coma & Their Families

Let Us Pray:

Lord we ask that You watch over those who are tonight in a coma, as their brains sleep in an attempt to heal. We ask that You watch over their loved ones, whose consciousness has been permanently altered by this experience. We ask that You give help to those who have awakened, to have the energy and perception to address the process of rebuilding themselves. We ask that You give their loved ones, the energy and hope, to enable them to stay as long as they can, to be the partner in the rebuilding and recovery. We ask that You help those who love, to put aside their petty battles, and focus first on the needs of the brain injured, and then on the needs of the family, whose life has been changed as radically as the survivor.

Lord, we ask that You once again to passover those who are injured and to allow the brain injury to passover those lives which brain injured to reach out and touch those who are near and dear to them...if only for a moment. If You can intervene, intervene by having the seatbelts buckled, the helmets used, the speeding laws obeyed and no more for the road. We ask that You intervene so that those who have suffered the blow or injury to their brain, receive proper attention, so that the there are no secondary injuries, either from improper medical care, or through misunderstood adjustment.

We ask for Your help Lord and we make this prayer in the precious name of Jesus the Christ, Who with You Father and the Holy Spirit, live and rule and One God, unto ages of ages, Amen.

Most Holy Mother of God and our Mother, be near all those who suffer from brain injury and their families and help them to feel your presence! May they know that you are the 'comforter of the afflicted' and the 'hope of the sick'---and that you will always be a Mother to them and to us all. Bring the prayers of those who suffer and their families to your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, Who lives and rules and has His being with the Father and Holy Spirit as One God, unto ages of ages, Amen.

In His great mercy and love,
+Fr. Gregory


+Father Archimandrite Gregory, who asks for your holy prayers!

The fourth prayer of St. Bridget

O Jesus! Heavenly Physician, raised aloft on the Cross to heal our wounds with Thine, remember the bruises which Thou didst suffer and the weakness of all Thy Members which were distended to such a degree that never was there pain like unto Thine. From the crown of Thy Head to the Soles of Thy Feet there was not one spot on Thy Body that was not in torment, and yet, forgetting all Thy sufferings, Thou didst not cease to pray to Thy Heavenly Father for Thy enemies, saying: "Father forgive them for they know not what they do." Through this great Mercy, and in memory of this suffering, grant that the remembrance of Thy Most Bitter Passion may effect in us a perfect contrition and the remission of all our sins. Amen.

Heal Terri sweetest Jesus, let it be a miracle as with when you healed the officers daughter. She sat up and her mother fed her. Let in be all for you honor and glory Jesus. Let you majisty rule that all men may see the healing touch of your hand. amen

And the Florida Catholic Bishops break silence on the Schiavo case:

11-March-2005 -- Catholic News Agency

FRANCISCAN FRIARS PRAYING TO ARCHBISHOP SHEEN FOR MIRACLE FOR SCHIAVO
YONKERS, NY, USA, March 11 (CNA) - While pro-life supporters nationwide fight for the life of brain-damaged Terri Schiavo, whose feeding tube is scheduled to be removed March 18th, New York's Franciscan Friars of the Renewal are staging a different kind of campaign.

The Yonkers chapter of the New York City-based order has started a prayer campaign asking for the intercession of Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen.

With Archbishop Sheen's help, the Friars are hoping for a miracle.

Father Andrew Apostoli C.F.R., one of the friars, said that "the late Archbishop's TV show was called Life is Worth Living, and believed very strongly in the value of every life, but the opponents to Terri Shiavo do not think that her life is worth living."

A Florida judge recently ruled in favor of Terri's husband, Michael Shiavo who plans to remove the feeding tube, which gives food and hydration to his wife.

Terri's family and other pro-life leaders are racing the clock to find a way to appeal the decision and save 41-year old Schiavo from starvation.

The Friars are asking that anyone who wishes to join them pray the following prayer:

Eternal Father, You alone grant us every blessing in Heaven and on earth, through the redemptive mission of Your Divine Son, Jesus Christ, and by the working of the Holy Spirit. If it be according to Your Will, glorify Your servant, Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, by granting the favor I now request through his powerful intercession. Lord, grant that Terri Shiavo's life be spared and grant her a healing that the world may know the value of every life.


+Father Archimandrite Gregory, who asks for your holy prayers!

Thanks for the prayer. I just printed it. This entire situation is so sad. Prayers for Terri and also for her husband that he will have a true conversion of heart.

That is wonderful.

Her husband turned down the million dollars. I really thought he would take the money and run.

God bless this person who in his generosity supplied the funds for Terri chance to have her parents as guardians. May God change the heart of her husband.

Friday, March 18, 2005, is fast approaching and I join the thousands of faithful here in the U.S. (and around the word) fervently praying for the success of Terri's fight.

Relevant Radio has been broadcasting nationwide its appeal for Terri's continued treatment direct from St. Petersburg for weeks now.

In the meantime, the USCCB issued its own statement, joining the Bishops of the Florida Catholic Conference in upholding the value and sanctity of Terri's life:

And today, the Vatican joins in the appeal for Terri's life:

With March 18 approaching and the California judge's ruling today regarding homosexual marriage, these are truly frightening times in our country. May Our Saviour Jesus Christ have mercy on our nation, and may we all truly repent of our sins and seek his face.

We're praying for Terri Schiavo every day in a Rosary Group I'm involved.

It is too sad and upsetting that her own Bishop won't do as much. The Bishop of St. Petersburg, FL leaves much to be desired.

There is reason to believe that her husband will again deny her the Viaticum.
