Friend of the Blog Fr. Erik Richsteig had a shooting in his parish during Mass. The victim is in critical but stable condition. Fr. Erik says he will be OK. The shooter was the victim’s son-in-law.
Father, heal the victim completely, give grace, wisdom, knowledge, understanding and skill to his caregivers; give grace, peace, faith, hope, and love to all who love him; and grant the shooter the grace of repentance through Christ our Lord. Mother Mary, pray for for all involved. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Update: Thanks be to God through our Lord Jesus Christ!
