O most Holy Theotokos, save us.

Channel 10 ABC News (San Diego) reporting that children are still being pulled from the school building in Oklahoma. Seven children have been pronounced dead. No more survivors are expected.

Lord have mercy.

May their memories be eternal.

Oh my dear God!

Lord preserve the innocents and everyone in danger.

Memory Eternal to those who have died.

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.

I believe there is a Western Rite parish in Moore? St Thomas the Apostle. Does anyone know if was damaged?  Maps show it was close to the track of the tornado.

On the spiritual path somewhere between the Simpsons and St. Theophan the Recluse, but I still can't see the Springfield city limits sign yet.

The coverage of the events of the past 24 hours have been and continue to be heartbreakingly tragic. My thoughts and prayers go out to ALL involved.
