A man with MS told me about his appearance next Saturday at an airport hotel in Detroit where an Oral Roberts' healer will be on this forty-seventh birthday of Steve, who is a chiropractor I chatted with the other day.

"Good for you," I said, to his announcement waiting for an adjustment.

So much healing needed now, I thought.


So much brokenness everywhere. 

Especially, within.

In need of healing.

Then there's a two-year-old who was "accidently" shot by her dad loading the weapon of mass destruction for the tiny tot. 

Breaks my heart.

And, a thirty-eight-year-old Waterford, MI., mom is tethered for life after being charged with sex with her son.

The list gets magnified.

Go figure.

A broken moment in time.

And, more.

A litany of more fracture in families, homes, our cities, our own hearts where evil all starts and perks, if you will.

Are we ready to believe enough in healing now?

And, in God?

Chaldean and Roman Rite Catholics will pray for healing with anointing with the sacred oil and salve of salvation, Thursday, October 25th, at 6:30 pm in Saint Sylvester Church at 11200 Twelve Mile Road in Warren, MI.

A congregation called, Our Lady of Perpetual Help, mostly comprised of parishioners from Iraq, this moment at Mass will afford the Chaldean and Roman Catholics a chance to experience each other in the healing presence of the Maker who can do all things.

 "Ask and you shall receive..."  said Jesus.

We shall be healed.

Will you!

Will hearts and homes?

Will brokenness be met by the healing hand of hope, and more?

I think so.

Are you a believer?

  1. Larry,
    I share your kindness and compassion. The pain others suffer,we suffer too. If only love could touch the hearts of all people.......we can only pray that violence ends and we can be instruments of peace and love as Francis so taught. Your work is wonderful......keep it up.
    Peace always, friend..........JoAnn
