Prayer request

This prayer request is from one of our Facebook members:

Please pray for a young man, David, who committed suicide Thursday in front of a Catholic church and school in Kentucky. He left a 6 page letter on Facebook stating that he had been abused by a priest in the past and hope that his death would motivate the hierarchy to become more involved in stopping clergy abuse.

He was a tortured soul. Please pray for him, his family, and the new Bishop who will be dealing with the aftermath of this terrible event.

  1. Please pray for the soul of my cousin, Dominic DiLieto, who committed suicide last year. Dominic lost his mother when he was only six years old. His father died suddenly when he was 12, and he was "shipped" from one aunt's house to another, until another relative took him in permanently. For awhile he was OK, married, had his own business, etc., but all that fell apart when he began having psychotic episodes that increased in frequency and intensity. Whenever he was off his medication, he became psychotic and got into trouble with the law. He had a rap sheet a mile long. Last year, he took his own life. I would like to hope that he was saved since his life had been a living hell for so many years, and God's mercy is incomprehensible, even to the angels, as St. Mary Faustina writes in her diary. Thank you!
