Most Holy Jesus, keeper of my soul. I shake my head at today’s news. Why does it have to be so sad? You were nailed to the cross for the sins of man and offered your life to save us. O Lord, how you bled and died to free us from death and an eternity in hell. For some, today is unbearable. I hope they will wake up from the darkness that surrounds them and see the light that comes from you. I pray for the weak and the suffering. Give hope to those who grieve. Place in me the words to assure the lost and the lonely. My beautiful savior, I give you my everything. Amen.
