I received a call yesterday afternoon from a friend who told me that her sister’s seven year old daughter was just killed in a horrible freak accident.  This family lives in our town and her four children are in our religious ed program.  Little Maggie just received her First Communion with us in May.

News like this hurts every cell of our bodies and makes us numb.  I will be with the family today and ask for your prayers for them.  There is nothing that I can say to them, there are questions that have no answers, there are feelings that need to be shared, there are emotions that are as raw and real as they can ever be.  No words can comfort right now.  A little child has gone home to God…..please pray.
