Prayers for Bishop Hlib

Bishop Hlib Lonchyna has just returned to his residence at the Ukrainian Catholic Pilgrims' Hospice at Piazza Madonna dei Monti - after spending all week in hospital having surgery for a ruptured disk somewhere among the vertebrae, which was causing serious pain. He's not out of the woods yet, so please pray and pass the word along.

Background: Bishop Hlib is titular bishop of Bareta, a native of Detroit, a Studite Monk, and the bishop who served during Holy Week last year in Dublin when I was co-chanter with Andrij. He is currently attached to Santa Sofia (Holy Wisdom) Cathedral, which rather makes him a sort of Episcopal Ambassador to Rome from Patriarch Lubomyr of the Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church.

I will always pray for Bishop Hlib. He helped turn my live around when all seemed hopeless.
