Electronic Prayer

  /   Saturday December 28, 2002  

Mission San Xavier del Bac in Arizona is accepting e-mail prayer petitions. Now, if you can’t make the pilgrimage, just pray electronically. They will pin your petition to the statue of St. Francis Xavier.

However, as the article quotes from Father Gaa

“I think if somebody in Tucson is e-mailing, they are missing the point,”

Honestly, I think that doing this is a matter of devotion is fine. It does carry the problem that other such devotions carry. If done as a means to force God to answer your request, it becomes superstition.
