For those in the Navy Yard shooting
« on: September 16, 2013, 11:14:22 AM »
There has been a shooting at the Navy Yard in Washington, D.C. There may be at least one fatality.

I pray that the person or people responsible are caught quickly.

Lord have mercy.

Lord have mercy. Having lived in a community which endured one of these tragic events in April 2009, I know just how important prayer is to comfort those in need.

Lord have mercy. Memory Eternal for the dead.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

Lord have mercy.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
