Please keep my uncle, Patrick Joseph O’Connell Meskel, in your prayers as well as the rest of the family. He was found a week ago with a gunshot wound to the chest. There are too many irregularities to make it a suicide (missing shell casing, the gun placed on the end table after he was shot, the trajectory of the bullet not matching his placement, etc.). At first we thought it was a suicide, but it looks like it is not and until the forensic medical examiner rules definitively, we are left in a sorry state of limbo. Naturally the family has already began to turn on itself (which is relatively normal) but there is much that could be done, and not done, that would make the whole situation a lot better. Please keep us in you prayers.
I didn’t see a prayer section, so I placed it here… sorry if that was in error.
Your unworthy brother in Christ and by the Grace of God a Maronite priest,
----- just found the palce in spirituality… sorry… please feel free to move it and edit this part out… thanks----
