Please pray for the repose of the soul of Matthew Pleva - just fourteen years old - and for the comfort of his family. He was an altar server at Holy Rosary Church in Cedar, Michigan. (You can just see the church tower on the right of the picture.)
The photograph shows an impressive turnout of his fellow altar boys from Holy Rosary Church - a parish which works at placing the fullness of the Catholic Faith before its people. Of three Sunday Masses, one is in the Traditional Form of the Roman Rite. They must certainly be doing something right. It reminds me a little of the time in my previous parish when for a year or two we had enough boys to make up three teams of altar boys for the main Sunday Mass who served on a rota basis.
May God bless them all as they mourn their friend - yet in the sure and certain hope of the resurrection to eternal life.
