Having a whole stadium full of people praying for an injured player reminding you that God Is In Control:
**Player from opposing team while getting tackled, grabbed his neck, went limp, and fell down. Forty five minutes later, in and out of consciousness, not able to move his lower body, the player was loaded into an ambulance and taken to the trauma unit of a local hospital. One of our very favorite priests was on hand to lead the stadium full of people in prayer. At the moment this picture was taken, you could have heard a pin drop. No exaggeration.
Even if I had not had a son on the team, my mother instincts would have still kicked in as much as they did. I was sick about this young man all night. Prayers. Many prayers went up. Next morning we get the glorious news that the same wonderful priest went to see the injured player at the hospital. He said the young man was alert, in good spirits and moving all his limbs. I wept.
Praise and Glory to His Holy Name!
