Pray For Russ Ford

I doubt anybody here has heard of him. He's currently serving a 25-year sentence in an Alabama penitentiary. I found out about him through dumb luck.

Here are the important parts. He converted to the Faith by the witness of another prisoner back in 1989. Since that time, he's lived in an apparently very anti-Catholic environment. That's not from the other prisoners. That's from the prison itself. As for the other inmates, he's helped to convert one hundred of them while incarcerated.

If only we could all be so wonderfully useful in the Church's mission to save souls.

His case is now up before the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. This man needs spiritual and temporal help. Here are some articles telling his story and how you can assist him. Please do so.
