Little children disappear from the bosoms of their family. A young woman vanishes outside a concert hall. A Roman Catholic priest is viciously murdered. Devestated parents. Hearts ache. Citizens mourn. Communities cry.
In our despair, we cry out to Heaven and we know we are heard. In the midst of darkness, we feel the warmth of the Light. We turn to it, we cling, knowing it is our salvation, our hope. Because without that faith, we rot in evil.
"Eternal rest, grant unto them, O Lord, May all their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. In Jesus' name, Amen."
