Dearest friends and family,
Please join us in our time of need. Effective immediately, the 4Real Forums are closed, with the exception of the Prayer Forum, for a time of mourning and way to focus on surrounding our dear friend and moderator, Colleen (missionfamily), and her family in prayer. We will re-open sometime late Sunday night.
Our online Catholic home education community has been plunged into much suffering of late. All of us, still in mourning and with hearts heavy and aching from the loss of Matthew Karol Snow and Ryan Barrett, are now utterly without words at the profound loss of Colleen and Greg Mitchell's infant son, Bryce Phillip.
We encourage you to join our community together in prayer and support for Colleen and Greg as well as continue to offer prayer support for each other's needs. In addition, we want to offer you an opportunity to "Be still, and know..." in Our Mother's Garden of Sorrows:
The losses of late are so sorrowful, but there can be no doubt that Our Lord loves us deeply. He said in John 14:6, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me". It seems that He wishes to remind us that "The Way" goes directly through the Cross. In suffering, and at the Foot of the Cross, we unite our prayers surrounding all families who are suffering, and especially the Mitchell family at this time.
Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us.
Holding all of you in our prayers,
The Managers and Moderators of 4Real
