Archbishop recovers from heart attack, returns to ministry

June 14, 2019

Thanks to all for prayers for healing. God heard, and responded “yes.”

This week I received a report from the cardiologist that my heart has recovered, and so I may return to ministry and car-driving.

The doctor would have me follow a diet and exercise regimen, and learn how to deal appropriately with stress. I am going to need Divine Assistance to carry that out!

I am humbled by the thoughtfulness and generosity that people have shown me. I will do my best to honor that by making your sacrifices count for something, and to pay it forward.

God bless your goodness!

Michael O. Jackels

Archbishop of Dubuque
