Please remember...

Father Matthew Jackson, priest in charge of Christ our Saviour in McComb, Mississippi, in your prayers. He's recently been diagnosed with acute inflammatory arthritis and is proceeding with the first stage of treatment. Also remember Matushka Xenia and their children during this time of trial.

Read his email, posted on the Diocesan website, here.

"O holy Father, heavenly Physician of our souls and bodies, who hast sent thine Only-begotten Son our Lord Jesus Christ to heal all our ailments and deliver us from death: do thou visit and heal thy priest Matthew, granting him release from pain and restoration to health and vigor, that he may give thanks unto thee and bless thy holy Name, of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit: now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen."
