Left to Right: Fr. Suelo, Fr. Valan Rajkumar, Fr. Chazal and Fr. Elijah O.F.M.
Fr Suelo had a stroke recently on the Polillo island in Quezon province, and is now in the hospital, totally unconscious and unresponsive.
He has a clot of blood both in the brain and in the heart, his diabetic and kidney condition is worsening, and complications in the lungs are now emerging and high levels of bacteria are observed in his blood.
Only a miracle can save him at this stage.
If he leaves us many Filipino groups will be left behind, or in very precarious situation, since they are still weak, or just recently coming from the novus ordo. I have no idea how to replace him at this stage, Fr Suelo was a valuable fighter till the end. There is a gap in our battleline now.
Brother John and myself are flying to Manila this afternoon, but please include this intention in your masses and prayers. Fr Fortin, of the xspx, accepted to give him last rites last night, and this was very kind and charitable of him to do so. There is still goodness in our ex confreres.
I don t think we will be able to escape this heavy cross this time.
In Iesu et Maria,
We pray for Fr. Suelo and that the heavier Cross borne by the good Fathers will bring forth new fruit. Amen (Admin)
