I recently posted about a faithful Catholic doctor (and deacon), Rev. Dr. Timothy Flanigan, who has gone on a mission to Liberia to help provide training and healthcare for those fighting the deadly Ebola virus.
In the meantime, the hospital that I mentioned in that post has been closed – because the Director and eight of its staff members died of Ebola. (May they rest in Christ’s peace!)
Now there are efforts under way to re-open that hospital so that the many people who need healthcare can obtain it there again. Please read more information here.
Also, the Bernardine Franciscan Sisters, whom I mentioned in the previous post, have shifted their efforts to their other missions, and so no longer need our support for this particular project. Thank you to all who helped them.
Please see if you can help support the re-opening of St. Joseph’s Hospital. (CLICK) Also, please continue to pray for Dr. Flanigan and for all those who are helping to fight this deadly epidemic! Read the latest updates on his blog: Dr. Timothy P. Flanigan
Don’t forget to pray the Memorare, a prayer all should know!
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known
that anyone who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help, or sought thy intercession
was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee,
O Virgin of virgins, my mother!
To thee do I come, before thee I stand,
sinful and sorrowful.
O mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
