PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) prays for “Big John”


John Reinke has shared news from Pete Sweeney about his Dad.

Thursday night he was increasingly disoriented and did not bounce back early on Friday.  We had him taken to the hospital for a another workup.  Result is again hypothermia but this time there is no medication to point to since we stopped the Losartan a week ago.  Warming blanket restored body temperature but his systems no longer are able to self regulate body temperature.  Cat scan, blood work etc are normal but prognosis is not good.  We will be heading to the hospital once care giver gets here for Mom around 10 15:am.
Will advise further during the day.
Please keep Mr. Sweeney and they Sweeney Family in your prayers as we pray that the MDs get Mr. Sweeney stabilized with no further complication. Please keep the volume up for this good man. Thank you. God Bless.

[JR: Pete and I are cousins and his Dad — he was “Big John” and I was always “Little John” — was huge role model in my effectively fatherless life. He taught me a lot about life, being a husband, and being humble. Some of his lessons I even learned — a little. Dona Nobis Pacem.]

Good Afternoon All,

I have just received from John Reinke,the Obituary link for Peter’s Dad, John V. Sweeney and am sharing it with you. It also contains visitation and Mass Of Christian Burial information. 
We pray for John, his Wife of 74 years, Dorothy and their Family. This good man, a United States Army WW11 Veteran, will be missed by so many whose lives he touched right up to the end of his journey. A truly steadfast member of the Greatest Generation, a loving husband, a loving Father and a friend to so many. It speaks of his devotion when his almost final concern was for his wonderful Wife, Dorothy. He is at peace in God’s Eternal and Loving Embrace. Please keep John, Dorothy, Peter, Dianne and their Family in your prayers. Thank you. God Bless.

Good Morning All,

Yes, John had his surgery and is recuperating at home. Your prayers are appreciated and please keep them coming as his healing continues. From John, much appreciated. Thank you. God Bless.
Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) 
[JR: Yup, recuperating from “minor” surgery — minor for the surgeon maybe. But, I’m doing fine. Just went in with unrealistic expectations about “bouncing back”. Laugh! It’s probably due to my Wall Street time.]

PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) prays for Reinke, F. John (MC1968)


Good Morning All,
I ask for your prayers for John as he will be going in for surgery this week to remove a Colon Polyp too large to remove lapriscopically. In speaking with John he said he was O’K with my sharing his thoughts on the importance of Colonoscopies. John’s Maternal Grandmother died of Colon Cancer and his Mom had a near miss with her Polyp being in the same place as John’s. Consequently, John takes his Colonoscopies very seriously. As John says ” it stops a silent killer cold.” Please keep John in your prayers as we pray for complete success with the operation with no repercussions or ill effects. I will keep you posted after the surgery. Thank you John for sharing. Thank you all for your prayers. God Bless.
Phil Colon
Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) 
[JR: Thanks Phil and all. As you can guess, I came through with relatively little trouble. It only hurts when I laugh or bend. Colon cancer is that silent killer. It killed Katie Couric’s young husband. In my case, it’s genetic. One doc called me “a polyp farm” after taking out 15 two years ago. It’s sad because a very simple disgusting procedure called a colonoscopy can detect, harvest, and eliminate them before they become cancerous. And they all do eventually. Being the typical fat old white guy injineer, I do my colonoscopies without the anesthetic so I can kibitz. It’s watching a TV as the doc steers through a bunch of twisty tunnels that look like the inside of a worm. When he spots a polyp, the doc lassos it and strangles it. Sometimes he has to snip and burn. I find it fascinating. Or you can elect to wimp out and sleep through the whole thing. In my case, it was like a golf ball tucked in a deep rough so they had to get it with laparoscopicly. I tell this story so that you can do it too. It’s really no big deal. And it can save your life.

COMMENT: Reinke, F. John (MC1968) is upset with the “Catholic Spring”


Is anyone else as upset about what Wikileaks is exposing?



*** begin quote ***

“We created Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good to organize for a moment like this. But I think it lacks the leadership to do so now. Likewise Catholics United. Like most Spring movements, I think this one will have to be bottom up,” Podesta writes.

*** end quote ***


Still think that Holy Mother Church and its institutions like Alma Mater are NOT under attack from within and without?
