  • I received word that there is now a GoFundMe page set up for this beautiful family:

  • I remember him well. I used to sit next to him in study hall. He was a model seminarian from what I could observe.

  • It is an admittededly emotional inspiration that causes me to have trouble disengaging from this tragedy.

    I never heard of this family, but in my private life, I have always had a fear that, if God took me early, what would become of my family?

    Yes, I have a life insurance policy, but that money will not help my wife or children get to heaven.

    I have always harbored a hope that if I gave to people at my own expense, maybe God and Our Lady would have mercy on a wretch like me and, for my family's sake, help them in my absence.  

    And I have always harbored the opposite fear, that if I did not give something to those who were in need, then if I died, what right would I have to expect God and Our Lady to extend a hand to my family?

    I think about the widow's mite, and see many donating $20 or $25, and my faith in fraternal charity is somewhat restored.  

    They said they would have a Mass said for anyone who could help in any way (prayer or otherwise), and that is a rich dividend.

    I'm going to let this go now, but my heart and prayers go out to them.

    If God took you early, then He has the best interest of not only you but your family in mind in terms of your eternal salvation.

    True.  I lose track of that sometimes.  Thank you for that reminder!

    So true! God knows what is best.
