Memory eternal - Phoebe Prince
« on: March 31, 2010, 05:50:51 PM »
This girl, Phoebe Prince, was raped and tormented by classmates, and eventually hanged herself.

May her memory be eternal.  Lord, have mercy on her family.

Save those who have committed suicide in the darkness of their mind, that the flame of their sinfulness may be extinguished in the ocean of Thy grace.  O Lord of unutterable Love, remember Thy servants who have fallen asleep.

I fear not for the soul of Phoebe Prince, but I tremble for those who drove her to such despair.

I live only a little bit from South Hadley where all of this took place.  Very sad case.

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

It's always so easy to say that suicide is never the answer but who can know the torments that this woman faced after such an attack on her dignity.

Lord, have mercy and save Phoebe.
