Mrs. Walter Matt Desperately Needs Prayers FeaturedBy: Michael J. Matt | Editor
In your charity, please remember in your prayers my mother, Marilyn Matt, who was afflicted with a stroke during an operation on her heart valve last night. The early prognosis is not good, but at 86 she is strong and has always been a fighter with an incredibly strong faith.
Longtime subscribers to The Remnant will recall my mother has been faithfully working here at The Remnant since its founding in 1967. She's been in harness all along, hard at it here in the office even just the day before her operation. Over the years she’s asked for nothing in return, preferring to remain in the shadows as the faithful heart of this apostolate.
But now she needs help. Please pray for her, and may God reward your kindness on her behalf.
In Christo Rege,
Michael J. Matt
