Pray for Richard Collins

I have had word from somebody who knows Richard Collins of Linen on the Hedgerow. Richard was among the first members of The Guild of Blessed Titus Brandsma, and is now in need of our prayers. With great sadness, I report that I have been told that Richard is entering into his last moments of life.

Of your charity, whoever you are, pray for Richard that, as a Catholic who has been fortified by the Sacraments of Holy Mother Church, he may be granted the vision of God, the God whom he has faithfully served, the vision of Him that he so desires. May Mary the ever virgin and blessed Mother of God intercede for Richard and be close to him in his preparation for meeting his Lord and God. May the gates of Paradise be opened to our brother in the Faith. Pray too for Richard's family and his friends and the many who have enjoyed reading Richard's blog and his often entertaining take on our Faith and events in Christ's Church. Jesus, mercy. Mary, pray.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph, he gave you his heart and his soul.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph, assist him in his last agony.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph, may he with you breathe forth his soul in peace.

Thank you for the update on Richard's situation. Prayers are being said daily.

He is one of the brightest lights on the internet and his writings have helped many a soul.

May the Immaculate Heart of Mary pray for him now, and at the hour of his death.
