Please Pray for my Father

My father Peadar Kelly, who is the man I admire most in the world, and who has had the biggest influence on my view of the world, is very ill in hospital. Please pray for him.

He carried a card of St. Anthony in his wallet and often asked for his intercession, so that might be a good saint to turn to. But all prayers are very much appreciated.

  8. Good good good, he's in the Mater isn't he? Just up from there, beside Temple St. Hospital as you're walking towards Hill St. but before you turn left to Gardiner St. is a tiny shrine to St. Anthony with a tabernacle. If you want a bit of peace before you head home and to pray for him well there's your man. I'll light a candle for him to St. Anthony again this evening, please God he'll continue to get better.

    Sinéad.
