Praying for Archer

IMG_0031On August 5, 2015, Archer Senft, 17, son of Deacon William Senft, who serves at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen, and his wife Louise, suffered a traumatic spinal cord injury while swimming in the Atlantic Ocean at Cape May, New Jersey.  The injury has left him paralyzed from his chest down and he remains hospitalized as his family fights to ensure Archer gets the best care possible and that he receives every opportunity to recover.

The family is asking for prayers for Archer.  I join mine to theirs and ask you to do the same.  The family, in particular, is asking that you pray to Venerable Bruno Lanteri, a 19th century priest who founded the Oblates of the Blessed Virgin Mary and who died on the same day (August 5) as Archer’s injury.  “With firm faith and unwavering hope, please join us in our prayer to Venerable Bruno Lanteri to intercede for the whole and complete healing of Archer.”

May God’s healing mercy be upon Archer and may He bring comfort to his family and friends at this difficult time.

    I was just made aware of this. Our prayers go out to all of you. We have a 6 year ald granddaughter fighting cancer. Mutual prayers wirk.

  2. Faith is where God lives. Faith is where hope lives. Faith in a miracle is where Archer lives. Healing lives where faith lives. Faith in Archer’s ability to heal is a great place to live. I don’t know Archer but I do not believe that matters, God knows Archer.
