For Mary and her family
« on: April 05, 2010, 10:04:30 AM »
Christ is risen!

Dear folks, please say a prayer for a woman called Mary, who works as a member of the staff of my university. Till yesterday, she was a happy mother and grandmother, but yesterday, her daughter killed her two children (Mary's grandchildren), then set her own house on fire, and killed herself. I do not know whether Mary has other children and/or other grandchildren, but this is devastating anyway. Thank you for the prayers.
Love never fails.

O Lord, have mercy on Mary and everyone involved.  Blessed Theotokos, pray for them.
