Folks, I'd like to ask you to pray for a young man, Newman, who passed away in a motorcycle accident today. Newman was one of my students and was supposed to get confirmed this year. He did not always attend class and I guess that being from a Tamil speaking family, sometimes, the language we used did not make much sense to him. I confess that I did not know him very well as he did not attend class that often and did not attend my camps and outings. But I've seen him at Mass in the village chapel and where he served. Good kid. It's too late to get to know him better now. What I can do is to pray for him and I ask that in your charity, you would do the same.
