I have delayed writing anything about Friday's tragedy because I have no adequate words. But my mind has been churning with thoughts. My heart is full of grief. I am overwhelmingly grateful for my blessed life. And all I have to offer are prayers...
For the sake of His sorrowful passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
