Be not afraid. Step forward faithfully. Cast out into the deep. Be saints

Chaos is breaking out all over again --- but that is no excuse to despair. It only means that we hold on tight to our foundations and pray all the more. Especially us Milwaukeans, who only a year ago were at the center of the firestorm ourselves, and learned to offer up our suffering as a gift, have a responsibility to pray for the faithful of Phoenix in their time of crisis. We have been there before them, and have learned, and therefore must intercede all the more. It once was us, for less cause, not very long ago.

Jesus, Lamb of God, have mercy on us.
Mary Theotokos, Mother of the Church, pray for us.
