Murdered child in need of prayer

A girl from my home town was brutally murdered (no detail but trust me it was indescibably bad) either late on Oct 31st or in the wee hours of Nov 1. she was a freshman at the high school I once attended. Im gunna put her in the book of life at the church i go to and i have already said the compline for the dead (i discovered this too late to do the vespers), but still such a tragedy cries out to heaven for justice, and to her fellow men for prayer. PLEASE even if its just a simple “my jesus mercy,” pray that she be granted rest.

Chelsea Harrison,
May the Lord in his infinite compassion grant you eternal rest and peace, and may you soon behold Him in all his glory. May your soul pass from light to light, and joy to joy, seeing the beauty that is always new but never changing, the face of God.

You’ve got it. Will say a prayer. What a shame - such a young child … probably some silly reason too.

I will pray for her

I will remember her in my prayers.

Bless you for calling this to our attention.

She most certainly will be in my prayers. Poor dear, and her family and friends.

Such a tragedy. When I say my Rosary tonight, I will say it for her. It brings tears to my eyes to know that such a young life is gone.

she is in my prayers, as is her family.

I will pray for her.

I will say a Divine Mercy Chaplet for her and her family tonight.
