A few years ago, in my hometown, we had a mentally unstable person kill a parish priest in the church. The event rocked the community. I will pray for the repose of the soul of Pastor Fred Winters, and for the safety of all of our clergy – separated brethren or not.

Our Father,

and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those
who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
