For my nephew, Ryan. He has been diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome as a consequence of his time in Iraq. He was assaulted with a rock by a youth who tricked him into thinking he was friendly and suffered a broken nose. He escorted the teen-ager back to his parents. He also driving an armored vehicle that was destroyed by a remote-controlled bomb. Once stateside, he was in a single-car crash a few weeks ago and has some memory loss, a torn rotator cuff, some compressed discs in his back to go along with several pre-existing stress-fractures in his foot (a result of jumping repeatedly from the armored vehicle he was driving.

He's in a hospital in Colorado Springs, and I hope to visit him when I return for a couple of days next week.

Keep my parents in your prayers, too. They need to move to assisted living, which is a huge transition for them - especially my mother, as it means she will have to say good-bye to her beloved cat, Abby.

I'll take a prayer or two, also, for the parish mission I'll be giving in Oak Grove, MN this week.

Thank you.
