Fr. Tim Vakoc: Died June 20, 2009
I just learned the news. For those who are unfamiliar with Fr. Vacoc, he was serving as an Army Chaplain in Iraq, and was seriously injured in 2004 when a roadside bomb exploded near his Humvee.
You can read the story at The Catholic Spirit.
For years we've been praying for him, and rejoicing at small gains he's made in that time, some of which are detailed in the article.
I'm really in kind of a state of shock right now...this seems so sudden!
Eternal Rest grant unto him O Lord, may your face shine upon him, and may he rest in peace.
