Oh please, pray a personal prayer or an Our Father or if you like, a Hail Mary for my brother Mark Francis. He is in surgery right now. It is Prostate cancer metastasized to the spine. Only known this since last Thursday. P.S. Recently, now a few weeks ago, I was going to ask a priest friend on the Internet a question. Such awful news but most happy for him, I find out Father Michael died! My question, can we offer the sufferings of others up and will it have the same merit as say, when you offer up your own sufferings, crosses?
