Tragedy in the Centennial State

In the first floor chapel of St. Anthony Shrine, Boston, Massachusetts, there is a statue known as the "Weeping Jesus."  It was inspired by the gospel story of Jesus bringing Lazarus back from the dead.  Before that miracle occured, the evangelist writes the Jesus wept when He came to the tomb of his friend.

He must be weeping now, after the tragedy that happened in that Colorado movie theater; weeping for the dead and the wounded; weeping for families forever shattered. 

We pray that Our Lord will draw all those souls into His arms, give them peace.  We pray that He will touch and heal the wounded.  And we pray He will be with the families, comfort them in their grief, and give them hope.
