Thank you for your continued concern for Father Anthony Mary. As many of you know, Father has a chronic health condition (not terminal), which means he wrestles with serious bouts of fatigue and has had to reduce his regular pastoral load. He is grateful for your care and for your prayers. He sends his love to all of you and hopes to be back on the air in the near future.

Thank you for posting about his health, so we can be praying for his continued healing, and hopefully, full recovery. I so miss his wonderful homilies – full of humor and wisdom, and his contagious smile! God bless you Father Anthony & may Mother Mary embrace you in her mantle.

  8. So sorry you are ill Father Anthony. Praying for your speedy recovery. I am a regular viewer of the EWTN daily Mass as here in our Cornwall Parish because of lack of priests we are lucky if we have a Mass on week days. Any way I am grateful for small mercies. Do say a prayer for me and my family. Thank you.

  9. Dear Fr. Anthony,
    I’m an avid fan of EWTN since I came here in the United States way back in 2003. I started my day through the prayers and mass everyday.
    I have been really wondering about you, Father Anthony for a while and is always looking for ward to hear you at mass and listen to your homily. Today, Feast of the Baptism of the Lord, I was thinking of a way to know what’s happening to you and I’m happy to see the update. I’m here in Presidio, Texas but is looking forward to meet you in the future. I’m happy to hear that you will be back soon. God bless you and your ministry.

    God bless you hoping you will be back soon on the aire.

  16. Dear Father Anthony Mary,
    My husband and I always enjoyed your celebration of the Mass. We lived in very rural Va and there was frequently no daily mass. We are and were very appreciative of EWTN and their faithfulness in bringing us the Mass . We miss you as we would always say “It’s Father Anthony!!!” You are great. We have missed you a lot. We will keep you in our prayers as well as all your brother Friars and all. God bless,
    The Carter family

  17. Fr. Anthony, take a well-earned rest. Sometimes we don’t rest when we need to. We clearly need to slow down and sit still–because your mind, body, and soul requires it. Trust that we all need to take care of ourselves. And let God give us love, courage, strength, and hope. Looking forward to your homilies. Would like to see you have your own show to teach and inspire us. Praying for you.
