The Lord is my Shepherd.

July 20, 2012

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.

    Caleb,
    I am praying for you and your team. I was present at SS Francis and Clare yesterday. I saw in you a courageous young man who is wise beyond his years. Your strength in leading and caring for your team was incredible. Andrew is greatly honored by your continuing the noble work for life. God Bless!

    Andrew is a good and faithful servent of our Lord as the rest of you pro life walkers are. We are so blessed to have you all walking and being a voice in the wilderness for life. I know God welcomed Andrew home to his reward in heaven with open arms and a big smile. I hope to someday be worthy of that homecoming. My love and prayers are with you all, my daughter Stephanie is walking the northern route. Love and prayers alway. Gloria

    We met Andrew this past weekend at our parish, St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, in St. Louis. We enjoyed his witness and his zeal for his mission. We are praying for him and his family and his family of “walkers”. God has blessed us with knowing Andrew.

    Blessings to all of you,

    Our prayers and sympathy are with Andrew’s family and the Crossroad’s family. We are deeply saddened to learn of his death, but are consoled that the “souls of the just are in the hands of the Lord”. We were privileged and blessed by having Andrew stay with us as the walk was just beginning. We were impressed by his willingness to pitch in and his deep faith.
    May God continue to bless and strengthen all the walkers.

    caleb and central walk – I thought you might like to listen as you walk to our two radio interviews we did with you, Andrew, Lindsay and Sabrina. The interviews can be found online (I turned them in to video files on Vimeo) at http://on-this-rock.blogspot.com/2012/07/crossroads-radio-interviews-from.html

    Also, I did a blog post when I first received word. Feel free to read that here if you choose: http://on-this-rock.blogspot.com/2012/07/interviewed-andrew-moore-crossroads.html

    I will never forget the time I’ve been able to spend with you. August 11th just took on a whole lot more significance for me, and will be praying for you all daily!

    In Him,
    Fr. John Hollowell

    Caleb, Lindsay, Sabrina
    It was a joy to have you & Andrew in-studio on Wednesday. Your commitment to the Cause and your strong Faith was most evident. I consider myself privileged to have known you , and all the Crossroads walkers we have met & interviewed for WHOJ the past 6 years. Andrew’s picture is displayed in the studio right next to Our Blessed Mother, who I am sure was the first to welcome him Home.

    Every walk every year has different talents, different struggles, and different sacrifices they are asked to offer in order to bring the truth in love to our country. Often we struggle to take one more step, often it seems overwhelming, but some how God manages to use us to show his love for his people. Use what you have learned this summer to get you through now take one step at a time, lean on your walk family, and remember you belong to God. You now more than ever are surrounded by a cloud of prayers, most especially by those of us who have walked before, you are living through what many of us secretly feared. My heart breaks for you, for truly you have lost a brother. I am proud of you, I love you, and my prayers are with you. Andrew will never be forgotten
