Prayers please for a man that has barracaded himself


#1

Sad Sad situation. :frowning: This man has barracaded himself. He has killed 2 police officers and a 3rd is seriously injured. This man is a Vietnam veteran and they believe that he has snapped. He thinks that he is presently in a war. There are numerous police officers sheriffs, and even some military personnel. All of this is happening right by a Catholic church. :frowning: The man lives by Holy Redeemer Catholic Church here in Texas. Please pray that this man finds peace and gives himself up. That he does not kill anyone else. And pray for the police officers’ families. :frowning:

If this continues thru the morning, I wonder if Mass would have to be canceled at this church? Dh and I don’t attend this Catholic church but I have family that does. ugh. So sad:(

Yes, this is so very sad… I’m glad that the man surrendered and there were no more fatalities…

Let us pray for the officer that is wounded and the two that were killed…

Father, we pray for the souls of the officer slain in the line of duty. We pray for their families and their city. Father, we ask for a healing of the thrid officer. Restore his health and increase his spirituality and faith in you Lord… In Jesus name I pray… AMEN

Saint Michael the Archangel, plead with our Father to heal both the injured and the injurer. May the Lord God have mercy upon those who fell in the defense of strangers, and be of heavenly comfort to those who mourn their loss. Amen.
