I started praying for the family of James Foley as soon as I saw that gruesome image on CNN. I found out today that brave journalist was a member of my church. It makes my prayers even more personal. I'm really impressed by the comments made by his Mom in this article. She's an inspiring example of Faith.
Update: Here is a link to a video of Foley's funeral Mass and a letter from captivity that he sent to his family.
