Bishop David Monroe
On Sunday the mass that ended the Canadian Bishops Retreat, I had the good fortune to be greeted by Bishop David Monroe, one of Canada's finest priests. He is recovering form his pencil wound he received when attacked in his chancery office and has lost a great deal of weight. I reminded him it was a dreadful way to loose the extra pounds. He laughed and agreed.
The worry he has and so do his doctors is his brain (intellect) he said he knew of the prayers as they helped him. Now it is time for us all to pray that his intellect is restored. I will use the prayer of Teresa Helena Higginson used during her pilgrimage on this earth towards Heaven, approved by the Cardinal Archbishop of England in the late 1800's.
O Wisdom of the Sacred Head guide Bishop[ David in all your ways; O love of the Sacred Heart consume him with your fire. Dear Teresa take your prayer on behalf of us to the Most Holy Trinity
There is a good reason for this prayer to be used as Bishop David will remember. Please use Teresa's name for the intercession
