AN UPDATE ON FR. CAROTA WAS POSTED YESTERDAY. PLEASE CONTINUE YOUR PRAYERS...
I am a little late with this update, it having been posted on October 4th on the website of Traditional Catholic Priest by Jonathon Byrd:
Update on Fr. Carota
Fr. Carota is very thankful for all of the prayers he has received from his readers. His condition has deteriorated enough that he is no longer able to continue posting to the website at this time. Fr. Carota’s mission for this blog is to help save souls which, as we all are aware, is what is truly important to Father. In light of that, I will be helping to insure the blogs continuance by posting the truth of our Faith in the same candid manner in which Father is known for until such time Father is capable to do so himself.
As to his health, he is hardly able to eat or drink. This has now gone on for some time and this is beginning to take its toil on his body. He continues to lose weight and at this point he has resigned himself to the will of God.
I ask all of the readers of this blog to say a Rosary for Father for the intention that God would restore his health back to Him. Fr. Carota has a great love of our Lady and especially for the victory that was procured at the Battle of Lepanto because of Her intervention. Since the Feast of Our Lady Of The Rosary is so near, I think it is very fitting that we call upon Our Blessed Mother’s aid and ask that Father would be restored to health.
P.S. If you would like to send Father a card please request his address via comment and I will make sure you receive his info.
I am just linking to two posts by Father Peter Carota, who writes the Traditional Catholic Priest blog, that detail his current health issues. Please pray for this priest and the recovery of his health, that he may soon return to his parish and apostolate.
PRAYER FOR PRIESTS
O Almighty Eternal God, look upon the face of thy Christ, and for love of Him who is the eternal High Priest, have pity on Thy priests. Remember, O most compassionate God, that they are but weak and frail human beings. Stir up in them the grace of their vocation which is in them by the imposition of the Bishop's hands. Keep them close to Thee, lest the enemy prevail against them, so that they may never do anything in the slightest degree unworthy of their sublime vocation.
O Jesus, I pray Thee for Thy faithful and fervent priests; for Thy unfaithful and tepid priests; for Thy priests labouring at home or abroad in distant mission fields; for Thy tempted priests; for Thy lonely and desolate priests; for Thy young priests; for Thy aged priests; for Thy sick priests; for Thy dying priests; for the souls of Thy priests in purgatory.
But above all I commend to Thee the priests dearest to me: the priest who baptised me; the priests who absolved me from my sins; the priests at whose Masses I assisted and who gave me Thy Body and Blood in Holy Communion; the priests who taught and instructed me or helped me and encouraged me; all the priests to whom I am indebted in any other way, particularly N.N. O Jesus, keep them all close to Thy heart, and bless them abundantly in time and in eternity. Amen.
O Mary, Queen of the Clergy, pray for us and send us many and holy priests. (Three times.)
