Prayer request

Please say a prayer for the repose of the soul of Dale Regan, Head of the high school I attended, who was killed today by a teacher who’d recently been fired.   Thank you.  May God reward your charity.

The present hardships are only going to grow more intense.  Some people will grow saner and stronger as a result of the adversity; some will snap.  We cannot know how others will respond, but we can do everything in our own power to make sure we are faithful to the graces God provides, assisting, whenever possible, others who are struggling to carry their burden.  This is why the interior life and the intensification thereof is paramount during times like these.  While we cannot know the day or the hour of our own death, we have it within our power to use well whatever time we are granted.  Godspeed to you and yours, today and always.

    I am sorry for your loss. Things like this seem to be getting more prevalent.

    I have a buddy (Korn Likker) who is having a cancer removed and an esophageal resection (very intense surgery) today. I ask that you and others pray with me for him, as well. He is truly a fine person and this battle is one he faces far too young (51).

    Thank you (and thanks for the follow).

    Thank you. I am happy to pray for your friend. My father died at 51 from a massive stroke, although it is fair to say it did not come completely out of the blue.

    My mother has taught for 29 years at the school where this happened. Considering that eight shots were fired and schools can be very busy, crowded places, the incident could have been much worse than it was.
