A local Catholic girl who had just started at Clemson University collapsed and died this week, and yesterday on the day before his eighteenth birthday another local boy was hit by lightning while on the soccer field. The girl was a member of a local parish and the boy played our kids at St Joseph’s in soccer.
Then today’s gospel: Jesus said to his disciples: “Stay awake! For you do not know on which day your Lord will come.”
In the midst of life we are in death. Lord, help us to use aright the time that is left to us here on earth.
Pray for Amy Moxie and Alex Holbein and their families.
