The Founder of the Companions of the Cross, Fr. Bob Bedard, is gravely ill. Prayers Needed!

I got an email today with this information.

Dear Friends,

I think it would be important to inform you that our beloved Founder and spiritual father Fr. Bob is in grave condition in the hospital. He has taken a turn for the worse over the last few days and we are very concerned about him. The next twenty-four hours will be very telling.

I would urgently request your prayers. He is in the Lord’s hands. I shall be releasing further updates regarding his condition on this website and through our pastors and chaplains. Unfortunately, it will not be possible to receive visitors at this time.

Again, I urgently request your prayers and sacrifices for Fr. Bob.

You may know Fr. Bob from Food for Life, the Catholic television ministry that runs on CTS and Vision TV. I watch the show whenever I can, and I often think his talks are very insightful. His parting would be a great loss to the Archdiocese of Ottawa.
