RIP Jimmy Mizen

Please pray for the repose of the soul of Jimmy Mizen, 16, murdered for refusing to pick a fight. As a teenager, I am deeply affected, not only because it was a life cut too short, but because from what I have read, Mr. Mizen was an exemplary character who brought love and joy to everyone who knew him. A devout Catholic and an altar server, Jimmy was killed, apparently by a fellow teenager, who smashed a dinner plate to his neck, and thus, bleeding to death. It is indeed sad that a gentle soul like him would have to die such a tragic death. Pray for justice, pray for his family. I've little doubt that he is with God now.

The reaction of his parents has been an exemplary witness to the Faith too. What a remarkable family.

These are testing times for the Church Militant, we must not forget what we are all called to do.

God Bless.

What a wonderful family indeed! Proof that even in these dark times, saints can still live and walk amongst us.

I heard it from Fr. Tim a few days back. Sad. That such a promising and wonderful life was cut short.

Too bad it's in Christian to say 'May the bugger who took Jimmy's life burn in hell'.

God bless his family and let's pray for this teen who killed him as well. No doubt Jimmy is in heaven with God. God bless him. Padre Steve, SDB
