“Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God.” – (Philippians 4:6)
The following prayer is being used around the world, asking Father Al to intercede with God for the petitions of those who need a miracle.
*** INTERCESSORY PRAYER ***
Almighty, ever-living God, giver of all good gifts, You have filled Venerable Al with an ardent love for You and for souls.

I ask this through our Lord, Jesus Christ, your Son, and the maternal aid of Mary, the Virgin of the Poor.
Our Father … Hail Mary … Glory Be …

Happy Birthday, Father Al... tomorrow, September 18, 2020, will be the special 90th anniversary of your Birthday in 1930. You were truly a gift from God to the world. May you have a wonderful celebration with our Lord and His angels and saints in Heaven. Thank you for all your loving sacrifices for God, and for His precious, little children. We were so blessed to meet you when you flew threw Los Angeles in the late 1980s. Thank you, Thank you, Father... for your PRIESTHOOD... and for your inspiring example of LOVE to the SICK, ELDERLY, ORPHANS and the POOREST of the POOR. Thank you for sharing so much LOVE! And now, Father, a little favor... If possible, can you please ask God... Father, Son and Holy Spirit... and Mother Mary, to work a miracle for a dear friend with cancer? Her name is Irene, and I pray, with God's Grace, and in God's Will, you are able to help Irene to be completely healed... In Jesus' Name, and through Jesus' Precious Blood. Many, many THANKS, for everything, Father! Muchas Gracias! Vaya con Dios... God bless your Children, and your Sisters, always.

I pray for Fr. Dan Leary, May the Lord guide him, use him to sow love, hope and joy in all the people he touches. May this light radiate and spread as a sign that God loves unconditionally. Fr. Dan is leaving behind bright lights that will unite us as one family in Christ.

I was one of Fr. Al's children and I'm always so much grateful to him everyday that he had given me secondary education whom my family couldn't support me because of our poverty. When I was in my 4years in the Sisters of Mary, I started to hope that I could still be able to continue my study in college with free education like this because I want to be a nurse someday and help my family. And now after a long years passed, All my prayers was answered, I get married with a good, responsible and hard-working man and we have one child now. I'm also currently a graduating nursing student and asking your prayers to father Al to help me enlighten my mind to focus my study and review and to give me enough wisdom so I could pass my board exam this year if possible, to get my dream to be a REGISTERED NURSE someday!.Let's serve the Lord with Joy!

I am one of Fr Al's children. I would highly appreciate it if you include me in your prayers for miracles through Fr Al intercession. I have two surgeries next month, leep surgery for cancer prevention and cardiac ablation for my arryhtmia.
I pray to Fr Al too for a successful surgery or if God willing to heal me before they can do the surgery because it really scares me and I am not yet ready to die.

Dear Sisters of Mary,
Please pray for a miraculous healing for my friend, Angela A. She has a cancerous tumor in her neck plexus area. She has had numerous surgeries and the tumor keeps coming back. Presently, she is in excruciating pain in both arms, as the tumor is enlarging and pressing on nerves. She is a faithful Catholic, married, with one natural son (studying to be a priest in the Arch-Diocese of Miami) and 5 adopted children; a couple children (now adults) with intellectual needs. One adopted son, Michael, has passed away. I saw your documentary on EWTN, with Father Mitch Pacwa. Please pray for Angela, through the intercession of Father Schwartz, that the tumor would be dissolved and never return in any part of her body. Praise Be the Name of Jesus Christ, with Our Blessed Mother!! In Christ, Mary Minnet 954-242-4390 email@example.com

*please pray fro my 11 yr old son, Isaac to be cured of profound hearing loss both ears.
* and for my husband Tobias to get a good job (unemployed 11 months and we have 6 kids)
I've just heard about Fr. Al and his story jumped out at me because my mother had ALS too. I'm asking for his intercession to bring my siblings back to the Church, (Joanne, Jimmy, Pete, Rob McEntee), and for family peace, love, settlement of our father's estate through a change of heart rather than through court enforcement, understanding, release of anger, addictions, greed, obsessions. Can you please keep this prayer request private. Thank you. Also for my sons Jeremy & Jimmy to return to the Church too.
