Prayers Needed for a Priest of the Institute of Christ the King

We cannot dedicate space regularly to prayer intentions related to the pandemic, since we would hardly have room or time to post about anything else. In any case, I am certain that all of our readers are steadily offering some prayer or other for the end of the pandemic, and all of the madness that has ensued from it, as well as for the recovery of all those who are sick. I do, however, wish to bring a special intention to everybody’s notice. Canon Francis X Altiere of the Institute of Christ the King, who has been a regular contributor to our photoposts for years, was hospitalized yesterday in Bridgeport, Connecticut, and is now on supplemental oxygen. According to the Institute’s Facebook page, his condition is stable, but please say an extra prayer for his swift and complete recovery.

UPDATE: as of the evening of Jan. 12, the Institute’s Facebook page has been updated to say that Canon Altiere is still in the ICU, but his condition continues to improve. He is reacting well to anti-inflammatories, and his oxygen level is holding at a good number. Please continue to pray for him, and for all those who are suffering.
