In Celebration of MHS Class of 1958

In Celebration of MHS Class of 1958

A Tribute and Celebration

We were the class of 1958, members of the Greatest Generation as well as children of the Greatest Generation. Born in 1940, we are also called members of the Traditional Generation.

Our childhood, post World War II, "was the best of times . . . it was the age of wisdom . . . it was the epoch of belief . . .it was the season of Light . . . it was the spring of hope . . . we had everything before us . . .we were all going direct to Heaven . . . ." (A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens.) At least, that's the way I felt about it. We were truly blessed.

Please pray for Joyce Bailey Rider

Joyce has had a massive stroke.  She has had two or three before this, but not this severe. She is fairly non-responsive, except for a little smile and squeezing the nurse's hand when asked. Please pray for Joyce and her family.

Have mercy, O loving God,

upon Joyce who has suffered a stroke.
Remove all fear and give her courage
in the struggle to recover what has been lost.
Grant her strength and hope to envision new days ahead
and a spirit of faith to take the risk of living fully once again.
We pray for your comfort for Joyce, her husband and family.Amen.

We ask for the intercessions of the Archangel St. Raphael, one of seven archangels standing before the throne of God.  St. Raphael, angel of health, we pray for Joyce and her recovery to good health.

Br. Robert Lentz, OFM
