This Philiptide, the Brothers of the Little Oratory in San Diego give particular thanks and offer their prayers for the following brothers and causes:
For our Brother James Cross, who is successfully recovering from a serious illness in London.
For our Brothers Wayne Lam who was with his family in Orange County;
For our Brother Robert Keim currently resident in Kansas;
For our Brother Ashley Paver currently resident in Cincinnatti;
and for our Brother Christopher Velasco currently resident in Arizona;
all of whom could not be with us this year.
For our Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI and for all his intentions.
For our friends and benefactors, lay and clerical, living and departed.
For the work we are graciously given to do, and for the ability, patience and strength to do it for the praise of God, and the unity of the Church.
For all these things, we say Deo Gratias!
