The Lord is my Shepherd.
Oh God, in my anguish I cry unto Thee.
The pain is numbing. How could this have happened? Several times I tried to cry or held back tears. Why? What are we doing here?
We are here to stand up for what we believe. To defend the defenseless. To witness to the dignity and sacredness of every human life. For this we have offered up our days, our work and our suffering. We have consecrated this land to Christ through our walk and our sweat and our tears and our blood. We have laid down our lives for this. Died for this. We will all lay down our lives, all die for this. Each in our own way and in our own time. This is the sacrifice that we make every day. To lay down our lives with Christ. To carry our cross as Christ carried his. To die for Christ and His people that we may live forever with Him.
Andrew Moore, our dearest friend and brother, intercede for us to the most Divine heart of Jesus that we may be ever strengthened and courageous in our ministry. Pray that we, like John the Baptist might be a voice crying in the wilderness, “Make straight the way of the Lord.” And that we, like John and Andrew, might give our lives for this.
Blessed be the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, now and forever.
