After the Boston bombings I posted about the serious prayer which all Catholics should say:
“A subitanea et improvisa morte… From a sudden and unprovided death, spare us O Lord.”
A sudden death can be a blessing.
A sudden and unprovided death is a horrifying prospect.
In this light, a reader sent me a link to the UK’s Daily Mail which provides photos taken in my native Minnesota along the North Shore of Lake Superior… near to where the group of priests I belong to have often met in the summer.
We don’t know the moment.
GO TO CONFESSION!
