As of this post, 3 people were killed in the terrorist attack at the Boston Marathon yesterday, including 8-year-old Martin Richard of Dorchester.
What a tragic day for a state holiday called Patriots Day, where we, as Americans, are supposed to celebrate the beginning of our freedom and patriotism.
I hope that little Martin, whom has been pictured on newscasts in his First Communion photo, will receive a Requiem Mass from a priest for the repose of his soul.
Requiem aeternam dona eis Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis.
Requiescat in pace. Amen.
Fidelium amima per misericordiam Dei requiescat in pace. Amen.
