Prayers for the Victim of a Horrific Murder

Some of my readers were FB friends with Tom O’Gorman, a vocal member of the prolife Catholic community in Dublin, Ireland. He was murdered on Saturday in a particularly horrible way by a man who appears to be insane. Those who knew him are reeling from shock at this absolutely senseless crime. Pray, please for the repose of his soul and for all those left behind who are struggling to makes cope with the horror of what was done to him and to forgive the man who did it. Pray as well for his killer that he be forgiven and find the grace of salvation in Christ Jesus.

David Quinn, whom I had the honor to meet while in Dublin a few years ago, pens a tribute to his friend. Heartbreaking.
