Please pray for Philip Gerard Johnson...

A holy young man, desiring to be a priest, but with a diagonosis of a brain tumor.
Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name, Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Hail Mary, full of grace, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end, Amen.
We ask for your holy will to be done, Father. We do ask all the Saints in heaven to storm heaven for this young man, who desires to be one of your "priest sons." Please, if it be your will, grant to him a physical healing, so that he may bring Christ to lost souls and may give to the dying, the Bread of Angels, and last rites as one of your priests. So that he may bring Life to newborn babies through baptism...that he may join betrothed couples and bless their unions in marriages within your Church. Where he can speak boldly your Truth from the pulpit, in which all peoples need so much to hear in these days of trial ahead. Days of darkness approaching need your bright, shining, holy lights of those called and anointed to be your priests. Where he may also give absolution to those who've fallen into sin and come with repentant hearts seeking to be reconciled to You. And to give the most cherished of all gifts,
the EUCHARIST,
to the faithful, so that we may live out our days in the grace given to us
as You give us Yourself, in the Host, through the holy hands of your priests.
In the Precious Name of Jesus we pray for your humble servant, Philip Gerard.
Amen.
