Dear Jesus. We thank you for the life of our brother Fr. Michael. As the friends of the paralytic did, we also want to bring Fr. Michael to your presence and would like to hear you say to him: "stand up, pick up your mat and go home", if its for a greater glory of God, our heavenly Father. We also ask for a miracle through the intercession of Venerable Concepcion Cabrera de Armida. Amen. Our prayers as well for Fr. Michael's family.

May the Lord continue to uphold and grant grace during this time; enduring the restoration of health in Father Michael and family. As the Lord embraces and protects His children, so may the angels, saints, and Blessed Mother grace us with peace as we seek intercession through them to Jesus. As we ask the Holy Spirit to imbue power and comfort to all, may we carry forward in our mission of Christian faith. Amen

Dear family of Father Wagner, You have been in my thoughts and prayers in addition to my prayers for him. May each of your Guardian Angels aid you as you journey through this tragedy. May our Blessed Mother comfort you and our sweet Lord carry you as much as you need. Father Michael has been such a blessing to many including me and my family. Having him in our lives for even a short time will never be forgotten. God bless you all. Your sister in Christ, Suzanne Lindergren. Our Lady of the Holy Rosary parishioner.
