Shot on a Wednesday night studying the Bible at church! Like the martyrs of old and today.
Saints of God, come to their aid!
Come to meet them, angels of the Lord!
Receive their souls, and present them to God, the Most High.
I have been there. Am I looking at the same building that now houses a prison museum in the basement?
