Regular readers of this blog know the work of Father Mark Gruber, OSB, anthropologist and expert on things Coptic. (See my review of Fr. Mark Gruber’s Journey Back to Eden: My Life and Times Among the Desert Fathers.)

Today I’m asking for your prayers for one of Father Mark’s kinsmen, Anthony, who was struck by a train last Thursday. Anthony sustained severe injuries, some of them permanent, and is hospitalized in a shock trauma unit. Please pray for him and for his family.

Praying that our Lord look with compassion on Anthony and his family so that they be given the strength to endure in faith.

We pray for Anthony’s family and friends that they and everyone who reads this lifts him up for healing and strength.

Journey Back to Eden is one of my most favorite books. I picked it up for Lent last year and could not put it down … actually, I still can’t :-)

Rest assured of my prayers for Anthony. He is now added to my daily prayer list.

Thank you for your continued prayers. My brother-in-law, Anthony, is back home and adjusting to his new life. He’s paralyzed from the waist down but is slowly improving in other areas physically and cognitively. Please continue to pray for him and his family.
