Jack Jablonski, a sophomore at Benilde-St. Margaret’s School in St. Louis Park, was seriously injured in a junior varsity hockey game Dec. 30 and is partially paralyzed.

According to a report posted on a CaringBridge site by his family, he severely bruised his spinal cord and is waiting for the swelling to go down before doctors can move forward with his care. He will have surgery to fuse two vertebrae in his neck sometime this week, once the swelling subsides, according to the CaringBridge site. He is in intensive care at Hennepin County Medical Center.

According to news  reports, Jablonski was checked from behind by a player from Wayzata High School during a tournament game in St. Louis Park.

On Jan. 3, the school offered prayers for Jablonski and his family. A statement from the school was not available before this edition of The Catholic Spirit went to press.

    With God all things are possible. We Catholics don’t seem to believe in the power of prayer as we once did. I’m talking about the intercessory prayers to our saints. May I suggest we all gather in prayers to St. Jude, St. Padre Pio and St. Giles asking for their intercession. I will be praying to them on Jacks behalf. Where two or three are gathered……. Please join me.
