A reader writes:Hi Mark, the new grandson (Hugh) of very good friends of ours arrived two days ago – he was full term & weighed 10 lbs but the little boy is not in good shape. Little Hugh is in Intensive Care and is suffering constant seizures. Last night the seizures came once per hour. He is having all sorts of tests to discover the cause but of course parents and grandparents are worried sick as to the possibility of brain damage. Would you please encourage as many as possible to pray for him. His parents are not Catholic but have asked us to pray for him. I will keep you posted with updates. Thank you.Father, hear our prayer for Hugh that he would be completely healed in body, soul, and spirit.  Give his caregivers grace, compassion, wisdom, counsel, knowledge, understanding, skill, insight, and the proper technology to treat him effectively.  Give him and all who love him grace, peace, consolation, strength, faith, hope, and love through your Son Jesus Christ.  Mother Mary and St.Luke, pray for them!
