Urgent Prayer Request: 2 FSSP Priests Attacked; One Murdered, One Critically Injured

CP was kind enough to point me to this post at Rorate Caeli.

The Mater Misericordiae Mission, the Latin Mass community of the Diocese of Phoenix, Arizona, run by the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter (FSSP), was the scene of a terrible tragedy on Wednesday night, following the breaking and entering of their church by armed burglars.

Father Kenneth Walker, FSSP, Assistant Pastor, was murdered. Requiescat in pace. Please, pray also for the consolation of his family: his parents, brothers and sisters. Father Walker was 29.

Father Joseph Terra, FSSP, Pastor, was severely wounded by the criminals, and is (at least to our knowledge as of this moment) hospitalized in critical, but stable, condition. Please, pray for his health and his complete recovery, through the mercy of God Almighty.

I saw a report on the New Liturgical Movement blog claiming that Father Terra was able to administer "last rites" to Father Walker. Solace in the midst of woe.

Many prayers for this Alter Christus and his dear family.
