Thank God ahead of time, whether you get your prayer answered in the way you wanted it to, or not. Be grateful for whatever God’s Will is. Whether you get a healing or God calls you to trust Him, through your present trials.
Venerable Fr. Solanus Casey died in 1957, in Detroit Michigan, USA. He loved the Detroit Tigers baseball team, and cheered them on, from the stands. He could not hear Confessions, nor preach a Homily. He was a Priest Simplex, because he did not know German and wasn’t learned. Yet, in his lifetime, more miracle were attributed to his intercession than any other saint here in the United States, while he was alive. He has helped many people, me included.
After Fr John A. Hardon’s Funeral Mass, on January 3, 2001 we went to the Capuchin Friary, where Father Solanus Casey is buried. I felt pulled there, because this saintly priest, who could not hear Confessions, knew that this Diocese that I live in has far more unworthy priests, who should never hear another Confession again. But, do anyways. This saint from Detroit has assisted me oh so many times, when I go to Confession or deal with rogue priests, that I cannot stop singing God’s Praises; for this saint’s intercessory prayers, from God’s heavenly altar.
“Venerable Fr. Solanus Casey, ora pro nobis!”
