For Andrea Eleni who was tragically murdered
« on: May 24, 2011, 10:14:11 AM »
Please pray for Andrea Eleni, a vibrant 18 year old girl in our parish who we will be burying today.  She was tragically and violently murdered this past Friday, most of her remains burned in her car after her death when the perpetrators attempted to conceal their crime.  Her family is, of course, devastated, as is our parish family.  We all feel a deep, sorrowful loss and are greatly in need of everyone's prayers.

May her memory be eternal!
Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me.

May her Memory be Eternal.

May God grant her peace, and her family and loved ones strength.

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 is not the task of Christianity to provide easy answers to every question, but to make us progressively aware of a mystery. God is not so much the object of our knowledge as the cause of our wonder.

Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.
