We join the nation in mourning the lives lost in Monday’s bombing in Boston, and the police officer whose life was taken last night.  Our hearts go out to the many victims who suffered grave injuries; our thoughts and prayers are with them and their families. We pray for Almighty God to grant peace to the souls of the departed, and to hasten the healing of the wounded.
