URGENT PRAYER REQUEST: Tom Peters (american papist) Posted on 17 July 2013 by Fr. John Zuhlsdorf I am getting reports that the young papist, Thomas Peters, was injured – perhaps severely – in an accident of some kind. Tom is the son of the great canonist Ed Peters, by the way. More information will come in soon, but in the meantime, please stop now and say a prayer, perhaps the Memorare, for Thomas and his family. UPDATE: See Ed Peters comment below, which I reproduce here: This is deeply appreciated, Pater. Thom fractured his neck in a swimming accident last evening. I’ll try to keep folks informed on my facebook page. Oremus pro invicem. EdP At his Facebook page he said: Thomas Peters was seriously hurt in a swimming accident Tuesday evening. He fractured his 5th cervical vert. and is at Univ. Maryland Medical Center (Baltimore).Natalie Zmuda Peters is there, and the moms Angela & Becky Z flew out a couple hours ago. He moved an arm on command and is undergoing more tests. He has responded pretty well to the immediate steps taken for him so far. I will stay in touch here. Your prayers and well wishes are deeply appreciated.
