Gilbert Mother and Teens Dead

Gilbert, AZ - Maricopa County sheriff's deputies were investigating an apparent murder-suicide Tuesday after the bodies of a mother and her two children were discovered shot inside their Gilbert-area home late Monday.

The mother, Lisa Gerhart, 45, is believed to have shot her 17-year-old son and 12-year-old daughter with a handgun before shooting herself inside their house in the 17700 block of East Prescott Place, said Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The Sheriff's Office declined to reveal the names of the children.

A neighbor called the Sheriff's Office at about 9 p.m. Monday to report seeing a running vehicle parked outside with a hose running from the exhaust pipe to the inside of the two-story residence through a window, Arpaio said.

"It's a sad situation. Domestic violence is something we have to look into. ... It's a big problem facing our county and our country," Arpaio said. "Many of our deputies, including myself, are married and have children. But we have a job to do; I don't know if you ever get used to it, but here we're talking about a 12year old and a 17 year old.

"Every life is precious, whether you're 84, or youre 12 or 2."

Let us pray for all those suffering from the loss of loved ones by suicide or other violent means. Lord, grant them eternal rest and bless their families with your divine healing and consolation.

Lord, into your hands we commend their spirits and may your perpetual light shine upon them now and forever. Amen

Fallen Public Servants

Dallas, Texas - We send our love and prayers to all the fallen police officers and public servants, who have died protecting our freedoms.

May God grant them eternal life and provide consolation to their families. Most of all let us mourn the lack of respect and caring in our society, which would lead to such a great loss of life. May God protect us all from such a lack of love and wisdom in the future. Each life is precious and irreplaceable. Each sorrow lingers in all our hearts.

Eternal Father grant unto to them, Oh Lord, eternal rest and may your perpetual Light shine upon them. Amen

A Prayer for All Our Loved Ones Living and Deceased!

July Fourth 2016 - As we celebrate the freedoms we enjoy as part of our Independence Day celebration, let us remember all those who travel this weekend and all those who have gone before us, who have died so that we might be free.

"O Almighty and merciful God, who hast commissioned Thy angels to guide and protect us, command them to be our assiduous companions from our setting out until our return; to clothe us with their invisible protection; to keep from us all danger of collision, of fire, of explosion, of fall and bruises, and finally, having preserved us from all evil, and especially from sin, to guide us to our heavenly home." Amen

We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, now and forever. Amen.
