Friends, please spend time on your knees, perhaps with your Rosary, and ask the Queen of Peace to intercede with Her Son for graces for these USA right now.
I write this as I see reports on TV that, during protests in Dallas sparked by controversial recent shootings by police officers of black men, officers are now down, shot. Snipers.
When I say the Novus Ordo on Sundays – which, believe it or not, I do with some regularity at the parish where I lend a hand – I always add to the petitions
“For all those service in the military and in law enforcement, that God will protect them from spiritual and temporal harm….”
Fathers, perhaps you might do the same.
Remember, everyone: Bad things happen to other people in other places, until it’s your turn. So, PRAY for those who turn has come.
LEOs out there, please, keep your heads on a swivel, thank you, and…
GO TO CONFESSION!
