A reader writes:A young friend of my wife and I is trying to raise some extra $$$ so she can attend Franciscan University at Steubenville this fall. Both of her parents are unemployed right now so she set up a “Go Fund Me” page to help. I thought your readership might be able to chip a few extra bucks her way by going here.She’s one of the most thoughtful high school students I’ve know who actively wrestles with her faith. I think that FUS will be very good for her growth and development.Father, provide for her needs for school through your Son Jesus Christ. Mother Mary and St. Thomas Aquinas and St. Francis, pray for her.A reader writes:I’ve read your blog, books and articles for some time now. I even comment occasionally. Right now I need prayer and, if any of your readers are so inclined, some financial help.For the past five years, I’ve been on disability and my income from an insurance policy and SSD has been adequate. Over the past year, my health has improved (for which I am so grateful). But I’m no longer covered by the insurance policy, have used all my savings to supplement SSD and have been looking for a job for the past four months. The market has changed in Houston and finding a job is taking far longer than it ever has in the past.Would you ask your readers to pray for me? Also, I need $300 as quickly as possible so that I will not lose my apartment. If any of your readers are so inclined, I’d be extremely grateful for any donations. Any money beyond $300 would help me pay for medicine and food but that $300 is the difference between homeless and not homeless. Mostly
