I grieve for Matty and Jared, both way too young to die. I knew Matty pretty well, and worked directing the contemporary choir with him last spring. He was talented, energetic and bright, and will be a loss to his archdiocese.
I also grieve for Rob and Mark, who have minor physical wounds but other wounds which will take longer to heal. And I also grieve for our community, which has lost four outstanding presbyteral candidates, and four beloved brothers.
The picture at right shows Jared, Fr. Dan and Matty during some fellowship time.
This picture is from Matty’s website.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
