Tragic shooting of Police Officers in Baton Rouge

Tragic shooting of Police Officers in Baton Rouge
On this Lord's Day, we are shaken by an unspeakable act of violence against police officers in Baton Rouge. As most of us came out of Sunday services and learned of this tragedy, we could not help but feel frustrated and saddened by continued violence.
Let us offer prayers for the deceased souls, families of deceased, and for fellow sheriff and police officers. We place our confidence in Our Lord who offered his life to bring peace to our world.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord,
And let perpetual light shine upon them.
May the souls of the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
The fruit of Silence is prayer. The fruit of Prayer is faith. The fruit of Faith is love. The fruit of Love is service. The fruit of Service is peace.
(Mother Teresa)
