Rod Dreher posted on his blog this morning the news that a family member is in an emergency medical situation. It is quite grave, as he is traveling to be with his family this afternoon.
Please keep Rod, his ill relative, and all his family in your prayers throughout the day.
Watch thou, dear Lord,
with those who wake, or watch, or weep tonight,
and give thine angels charge over those who sleep.
Tend thy sick ones, Lord Christ.
Rest thy weary ones.
Bless thy dying ones.
Soothe thy suffering ones.
Pity thine afflicted ones.
Shield thy joyous ones.
And all, for thy love's sake. Amen.
--Prayer of St. Augustine
