JOHN VENNARI SCHEDULED FOR SURGERY SATURDAY MORNING Requesting Prayers
This is a note to tell my friends that I have to go into surgery on Saturday morning, November 26. Cancer is a nasty beast, and it has caused an obstruction in the GI that must be addressed immediately. Immediately. As noted already, my case has been serious from the start, and this latest problem came to a head at the same time I returned from three weeks of cancer treatment in Mexico.
I am presently not able to update my CFN webpage (I write this note from the hospital). I was blessed to receive the Sacrament of Extreme Unction this afternoon.
Please feel free to forward and/or post this, along with the link below that provides background and info for those who wish to share prayerful and financial support. http://www.oltyn.org/vennari.htm
Thank you for all your prayers and support up until now. Please pray and ask others to pray, especially communities of religious and convents of nuns.
Am I am a little afraid of surgery? Who wouldn’t be? But I place my trust in Our and Our Lady, and take heart from all the kindness and concern I’ve received. Your outpouring of love has been astounding.
I may not be able to update for a few days.

A Brief Comment from Michael Matt: This is too personal for me to comment on here in any detail. John is a brother to me, and this is a very serious surgery. One thing I can do for him right now is to beg the friends and allies of The Remnant all over to the world to stop what you're doing right now and storm heaven with prayers for our old friend and champion of the Catholic cause--John Vennari. St. Philomena, please intercede on behalf of our brother who is so devoted to you. Our Lady of Fatima, be with him now.
We're with you every step of the way, John, and we all know exactly what kind of a fighter you are. So fight this too, and we'll see you after. -- Michael
