Pastor Rick Warren was hospitalized today when he suffered an eye-injury while gardening at his home. Reportedly, the sap of a firestick plant got into Warren’s eyes when he wiped his brow. The sap can cause temporary blindness.

The 56-year-old pastor sent a message to his Twitter followers asking for their prayers. “My eyes were severely burned,” Warren Tweeted. “Excruciating pain.” He was treated overnight and then released from Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo.

    The story would work better if he got blinded by the plant BEFORE he came to Christ, like Saul on the road to Damascus.

  • Jack West

    Judging from the picture, the plant is well named.

    I am recovering from an eye injury and I certainly can empathize with our beloved Pastor. I found out that prayers are best for the healing of eye injury. May the Divine Healer touch and heal Pastor Rick’s eyes in Jesus name.Amen.

    GEN19:11
    And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door.
    Mr. Warren isn’t a “pastor” he is facilitator of a fake “church” he created by building it from a survey HE did of the neighborhood, God doesn’t build churches on what PEOPLE WANT.
