Today we wanted to give you an update on the current condition of Canon Fragelli.
He remains in an artificially-induced coma but during a recent visit from a few of his fellow Canon's they reported his eyes fluttered as they sang the "Salve Regina" which means he is was able to hear them! They blessed him with a relic of the True Cross and told him that his friends of the mission are praying that it's God's will he return to us.
The doctor believes that they have made progress against the infection in his lungs but that continued progress will be very slow so he will remain in a sedated state.
It appears the road back for our beloved Canon will be a long one so we ask that continue to keep him in your prayers every day.
We will do our best to keep you updated if there is any change in his condition for the better or worse as soon as we can.
Thank you and as always God bless you,
The Mission Support Team
