In your charity and mercy, please pray for the Adams family August 14, 2010

My second oldest daughter plays a great deal of soccer.  She used to play with a very good little 9 y/o goalie.  Her last name was Adams.  We knew this family, if not really well, probably a bit more than acquaintances.  The tragedy that has befallen this family is heart-stomping:

2 year old Carson Adams became at least the ninth child in Texas to die this year in a manner that shows no signs of stopping. At least 33 children nationwide have died in hot cars this year, tying last year’s total.

This has hit me like a 2×12, and I didn’t know little Carson too well.  I cannot fathom what her family must be going through.  Please pray that the anguish of their bereavement may be assuaged by God’s mercy and forgiveness.  I don’t have much else to say, other than that many people praying for them must surely aid them in this unthinkable time.  I am so very very very sorry.

St. Maximillian Kolbe, pray for us all.  Our Lady of Dolours, pray for us.  Jesus, save us.

Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.

Sweet Jesus, have mercy.

We have all made similar mistakes. From too much personal experience, I know that each of my children survives daily by the grace of God alone.

Blessed Mother, wrap your mantle around the Adams family.

Prayers, certainly. Saw this on the news and prayed for them at that time. God has a plan, and can draw straight with crooked lines. Lord have mercy!!!

Death where is your sting? Grave where is your victory? There is none.

May all the souls of the faithfully departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen
