Prayers requested for Fr. Cooper, SSPX


“We would like to request your prayers for our priest, Fr. Daniel Cooper, who resides at our priory in Dickinson, Texas.
Fr. Cooper is suffering from bone marrow cancer. He will undergo a chemotherapy treatment today and then enter the hospital this Friday. After about 3 to 4 weeks, Father will have a bone marrow transplant using his own stem cells.
We pray that Fr. Cooper will have a successful transplant and recovery. This photo is a recent one taken by a student at St. Anne’s parish in Detroit”.

    Prayers for Fr. Cooper.

  9. May Sr Cecilia Maria of the Holy Face, OCD, obtain whatever (and I suspect they are very few indeed after watching Father’s sermons) is necessary for his IMMEDIATE admittance into Heaven, if that is God’s Will for such a splendid priest, or the IMMEDIATE remission of his illness.

    If Tom can re-post the information about Sr. Cecilia Maria, I’d really appreciate it. The original info is available at the Carmelite monastery, Santa Fe, Argentina.

    If Sr. Cecelia ISN’T already in Heaven, then I will abandon all hope! She was literally a perfect example of total submission to the Divine Will, like St Therese of Lisieux and St Teresa of Avila.

    I can’t post a thing on AQ except for text, anymore. So, if that magnificent and magnetic photo of Sister, not many hours from entering eternity, can be reposted, I’d be deeply grateful.

    And, yes, Tom, all my insistent, pesky and persistent posts and emails to ask for your help ARE paying off the entire debt of any of the few sins you may have committed on earth through mere human weakness.

    That may not be “de fide,” but it’s as sincere as I could ever hope to be.

    I hope we all remember, and frequently, to thank our over-the-top brilliant and tech-savvy Tom the Great for how he has literally kept this website functioning and fruitful for ALL these years.

      Sister Cecilia, Carmel of Santa Fe in Argentina

      Aleteia | June 25, 2016

      Death is a tragedy for mortal man, and yet with faith in eternity and anticipation of the embrace of our heavenly Father, death becomes radiant.

      We share today the news of the death of Sister Cecilia, a Carmelite of Santa Fe in Argentina, who suffered from lung cancer. She astonished those who surrounded her in her agony, as her face was transformed by a tender smile as she closed her eyes to this world. As you can see in the photograph, she looks like a lover who has arrived to the encounter she has long been yearning for.

      The Carmel of Santa Fe announced the death of Sister Cecilia to their brothers and sisters and friends of the Carmel, with a brief, but profound, note.

      Dear brothers, sisters and friends:

      Jesus! Just a few lines to let you know that our very dear little sister has softly fallen asleep in the Lord, after an extremely painful illness, which she always endured with joy and surrender to her Divine Spouse. We send you all of our affection, thankful for your support and prayer during this time that is so sorrowful and yet also so marvelous. We believe that she flew directly to heaven, but all the same, we ask that you do not fail to pray for her. From heaven, she will reward you.

      A warm embrace from your sisters of Santa Fe

  10. Prayers for Fr. Cooper.

  11. Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy clemency hear and answer me. Amen.
