Family Holy Hour for James Fulton

I was amazed to open my email last night to find a message about a Holy Hour that has been planned for my son.  Travis, L, Ben, James, and I would all be honored if you could come.

"Let the Children Come to Me" Holy Hour for James
Tuesday, September 28th
6-7 pm
St. Mary's Catholic Church, Metamora

The Holy Hour is aimed for families so please bring your kids.  I know that many of my friends have gotten their children, parents, and other friends and family members to pray for my son.  Please invite them all to come and spend a little time - as much as can be spared - before Christ, begging for my son's healing.

Of course, if you cannot be there I ask that you help us storm Heaven from 6-7pm central time.  And also remember to ask for Archbishop Sheen to intercede for us.

I've copied the email below if you'd like to read it.  Thank you again for all your love, support, and prayers!  We thank God for you!

...  Sweet baby James needs his brain to be healed. And as so often mentioned by Christ in the Bible, it's faith that is necessary for miracles to occur. So this is where you come in.

Your children (and you of course) are invited to join us in a "Let the Children Come to Me" Holy Hour for Baby James.  You see, the older I get, the more convinced I am that the greatest in the kingdom are truly kids!! They have an amazingly simple faith.....they simply believe. And right now James and his family need their faith. Yes, our faith is good....but right now James needs exceptional and our kid's are exceptional. Please help me in packing St. Mary's with your kids.....babies, toddlers, school-aged kids and teenagers are all encouraged to come sit at the feet of Christ with me as we insist with 'holy boldness' that God heal James fully and completely, once and for all. Please sacrifice bedtimes, routines, homework, dinner, busy schedules and join us as we show God that together we have the faith to move this mountain for Bonnie and Travis and James. Below are the details....

"Let the Children Come to Me" Holy Hour for Baby James Engstrom
Tuesday, Sept.28th
6 - 7pm at St. Mary's Church in Metamora

All children will be invited to sit up front on the floor with me at the 'feet' of Christ as we talk with Him about James. Please know that while maintaining a respectful time of prayer, your kids can be kids. God knows better than anyone what kids are truly like and He told the apostles not to stop them from coming to Him. I will be there to lead them in prayer, answering and asking questions, singing songs to Jesus with them. If you've never done anything like this before, please do it now....for Sweet Baby James!


  1. Will do! I wish I could be there in person.

    Also, I just came across a bio that mentioned that Solanus Casey contracted a serious disease when he was a child. His cause is up for canonization, so he might be another person to ask for prayers!

    Many more prayers coming your way.

  2. I wish I could be there with you during this time! I will surely be praying with you all during this hour. Love you always...

  3. I'll be subbing for Kaitlin's (more like Mary blogger) holy hour at the exact same time on Tuesday so I'll be with you all in spirit!

  4. Wish we could be there! Unfortunately, that's the crazy hour around here - but I'll be praying as I get the kids settled for bed!
