The murder of the elderly priest, Pere Jacques Hamel in Rouen is best described as beyond horror for those who were witnesses and those who have been affected by this brutal action. This was a frail and elderly priest who was prayerfully, reverently and quietly celebrating weekday morning Mass with a small parish gathering. It is unimaginable what they have all suffered and highlights the suffering of so many throughout the world who continue to fall victim to new forms of terrorism. Our prayers may seem inconsequential and yet we persevere to put our trust in the Risen Jesus Christ. Indeed, we value even more deeply, the precious gift of the Eucharist and our faith in God. Please God, we will continue to do this and use our faith as the strongest weapon that God gives to us. May Fr. Jacques and all those who suffer tragic death pray for us from their deserved place in the company of the Lord. May he rest in peace.
