The bus tragedy

First off I really wanted to post pics of these 2 people but the rt click button doesn't work on my mouse so that's kinda difficult. These two people met on a greyhound bus in Canada. In the prairies. They sat side by side. Vince is accused of killing Tim in such a horrific and graphic manner I can only assume he was insane. With me suffering with my own mental illness ghosts this really touches me. All I can do is pray for both of these men, their families and those on the bus which will be forever changed by this tragic event.

Tim Mclean
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon him.
May he rest in peace.


Saint Dymphna
Lord, our God, you graciously chose St. Dymphna as patroness of those afflicted with mental and nervous disorders. She is thus an inspiration and a symbol of charity to the thousands who ask her intercession.

Please grant, Lord, through the prayers of this pure youthful martyr, relief and consolation to all suffering such trials, and especially those for whom we pray Vince Li.

We beg you, Lord, to hear the prayers of St. Dymphna on our behalf. Grant all those for whom we pray patience in their sufferings and resignation to your divine will. Please fill them with hope, and grant them the relief and cure they so much desire.

We ask this through Christ our Lord who suffered agony in the garden. Amen.
