From Cardinal Seán's blog

From Cardinal Seán's blogI want to begin this week asking all of you to pray for the family of Ryan Morrissey, a teenager from Charlestown who attended St. Clement High School in Medford and was a victim of gang violence. He was a young man who had nothing to do with that world of gangs and drugs, but was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. He and a friend were shot coming out of a convenience store near his home last Wednesday. This type of senseless violence and the proliferation of guns in our community is a very serious problem and it is a great sorrow to see young people's lives ended so senselessly. We pray for his family, his classmates at the school, and all his friends and acquaintances who are very much affected by this young man's untimely death.
