Assumption Grotto parishioner does music video for cousin slain in Newtown, CT

Mary Rose Maher, a parishioner at Assumption Grotto, has made a music video in memory of her cousin, who was among the young children killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT.    Watch through to the end.


Underneath the video at You Tube is written:

"In memory of my cousin, Allison Wyatt and her nineteen little friends from Sandy Hook Elementary School." Mary Rose 

See more info at YouTube.

May all of the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting rest peacefully in the arms of Our Lord, especially now during such a solemn time.  May God grace the families with consolation. Their little ones are gone from our midst and we all mourn their loss, but we trust they are happier with God than they ever could be here on earth.

As a side note: Mary Rose starred in a locally made movie by Holy Trinity Productions, Leonie. Blessed Leonie Martin was a sister of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux who was a "difficult child." She wanted to be a religious sister and a saint, but she had to work through some difficulties.  A featurette may be viewed here, and more info here.  I saw the movie when it ran for several days at a local Emagine theatre and I am hopeful for it's eventual release on DVD.  I'll pass info along as I get it.
