He informed me that two members of the youth group are asleep in the Lord now.  I don't know what happened, whether car wreck or what, but I'm sure the folks at Saint Mina could use a quick prayer.

Good heavens.

They were the victims of a convenience store robbery.  Shot them both, and severely wounded a third fellow.

I didn't know if this was the correct story or not, until I read the names of the victims:

Heck with it, I'm praying again.

Kyrie Eleison,
Kyrie Eleison,
Kyrie Eleison.

O Lord, have mercy upon Your servants.  Lead them into the green pastures by the waters of rest, for we have no helper in our hardships and tribulations but You.

Got a news cast link that shows Fr Boutros of Saint Mina's.  Two of the men had a bail hearing today (which the judge rightfully denied).
