When horror strikes, there is little to be done except pray. For the families in Newtown, CT, and for the souls of those killed, which sadly consists of children, as is now being reported.
Jesus, You said that better a millstone be placed around the neck of one one who dared to harm the innocent and he then be cast into the sea. Extend Your grace on the victims, Your consolation to their families, and Your mercy to those who wear the millstone. You said, "Let the little children come unto Me" - welcome these souls into Your Heavenly Kingdom. Amen. (+)
Whenever a child is killed or dies, I have always felt that He sends the best possible person to escort them to His throne . . . His Mother. Sweet Virgin, hold them close to you and cast away their fear. Mary, Mother of God, pray for us.
