Boston Marathon

Four years ago I was a Religious Brother for the Oblates of the Virgin Mary in Boston, which is located on Boylston street, the same street the explosions took place yesterday April 15th near the finish of the Boston Marathon. When I was in Boston four years ago I decided to go to the Boston Marathon because that is one of the biggest events in Boston. I was able to get within 50 yards from the finish line and there you were always touching 3-4 people because everyone was so packed near the finish line. My prayers are for all the people who were hurt by the explosions, for their families and for the doctors who are trying their hardest to keep them alive. May Jesus our Divine Physician work through the doctors to bring about healing.

Here are some pictures I took at the Boston Marathon,

      You can see the flags, that is where the first explosion happened.

This is right past the finish line, where the runners get water and then get on the bus to get to their hotel.

Please keep praying for those who have died and who are injured.
