Rick Santorumn’s presidential run may soon be over, but his most important role as father to his seven children, including little Bella who has Trisomy 18 will never end. Speaking of Bella, this precious gift of life is back in the hospital today. Communications director Hogan Gidley, issued the statement: “Rick and his wife Karen have taken their daughter Bella to the hospital. The family requests prayers and privacy as Bella works her way to recovery.”
You may recall that Bella was hospitalized in January with pneumonia and had a “miraculous turnaround” a few days later.
Also in need of prayers: Evangelical leader and pro-life activist, Chuck Colson, who is in the hospital after suffering a brain hemorrhage last Friday. And Anchoress reader Sarah K, who’s kidney’s appear to be failing.
For these and all who are in need today, we pray: Lord, look upon your servants laboring under bodily weakness. Cherish and revive the souls which you have created so that, purified by their suffering they may soon find themselves healed by your mercy. We ask this through Christ our Lord, crucified for us this day. Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us. Amen.
