We’re sad…

  1. Andie, this evening in Markham, Ontario at an RCIA meeting I asked people to bow while I prayed and we had a moment of silence for those who died at Newtown and for those who are left to grieve. Please know that the Body of Christ mourns with you and none of us will be the same for when one suffers, we all suffer. May God’s healing grace be with each person who feels the pain from this tragedy which, as you have written, only love can heal.

  2. Andie, I’m grieving for everyone involved. This tragic incident will haunt many of us throughout the coming weeks and months. One of the most consoling things I’ve heard since the unthinkable tragedy in Newtown is a quotation from Mr. Rogers about scary things in the news. This is the quotation: “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.'” This is what I have been seeing, people helping, lots and lots of helpers. As St. Paul has said, “Nothing can separate us from the love of God.” God’s love is manifested in these helpers.

  3. Thanks so much Ruth Ann. It’s amazing how people from near and far feel the pain! Yes, there has been so much generosity in prayers and support. A friend from Sandy Hook told me that all of the funerals have been paid for by donations. His light shines through the darkness.
