    Huge prayers–so tragic and hard to believe. I never met Mrs. Cavalcanti, but knew the bishop to be very courageous and devout. He was also a most kind listener at Hope and a Future in ’05; his encouragement at that time was deeply appreciated. God keep them both…

    This brings to mind the equally sorrowful story of William of Rochester (or Perth) who is the patron saint of adopted children. He met a similar fate at the hands of his adopted son, David in 1201. Here is the entry in the Catholic encyclopedia [url=] William of Rochester [/url]. Although William is the patron of adopted children, I wonder if he should not be the patron saint of adoptive parents. Prayers and peace to the Cavalcanti family. They took the risk of loving a deeply troubled young person and have paid with their lives – truly Christ-like. Rest eternal grant to them.
