Mark Roock is a lovely man who works in Institutional Advancement at Maryville. He is a family man, a gentle man and a man of deep faith. His son, David, was traveling to Chicago with his three small girls. A tractor trailer hit their car, instantly killing two of the little ones. The third child has a spinal injury - how severe, I do not know. The father is relatively unscathed. I am writing to ask that the community pray for this family. I just can't imagine the grief felt by the parents and grandparents. I know you and the RSCJ have an enviable gift for prayer.

For Your Prayers
Mary Ann Foy asks our continued prayers for her nephew, Dan Foy, seriously injured in a motorcycle accident. He is still in ICU in an induced coma to assist in healing multiple broken bones and surgeries to iserts rods in crucial parts of his body. Please pray for a complete recovery.
Never forget that the children are a sacred trust which you must guard "with a truly maternal love drawn from the Heart of Jesus." Be patient with your pupils; our Lord is so patient with you.
