Lnc. Cpl. Ralph Fabbri
« on: October 04, 2010, 10:32:40 PM »
Dear friends,

Please pray for a fallen soldier from my town, Lnc. Cpl. Ralph Fabbri, who died in Afghanistan last week; a day before his 21st birthday and 3 weeks before he was to return home. 

I was also just told that those insane Westboro people will be protesting down the street from the funeral Mass.

O God, bring your love and compassion to the family of Ralph Fabbri and may his memory be eternal! 

May his soul dwell among the righteous!

(Nitpicky point of correction... Marines are NOT soldiers and hate to be called such.)

May the memory of this faithful Marine LCpl Ralph Fabbri be eternal!  Semper Fi!

You're right and I knew that yet somehow forgot.  (3 close friends of mine have served in the USMC)

Lord, have mercy.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
