There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. (John 15:13)

Officer Familia laid down his life for a complete stranger. This is a great love. Desiring to help someone in need, not thinking of himself, he gave his all.

We need more people like this in the world. Selfless. Caring. Doing their best. Regardless of the cost.

But my heart breaks for his family and their great loss. To his wife, son, and daughter: I am praying for you. May God comfort you and help you during this most difficult time. May He be your strength and give you peace every day. His grace is carrying you until you can breathe again … and then every day for the rest of your lives.

Heavenly Father, the sudden and tragic death of Police Officer Emmanuel Familia, of the Worcester MA Police Department, in the Line-of-Duty, has filled our Law Enforcement family’s eyes with tears and our hearts with sorrow. We are distressed by the mysteries of Your Providence. As Your child we want so much to say, “Not my will, but Your will be done,” but at times we find it difficult to do. Forgive us and help us. We pray by Your Holy Spirit, to accept Your ways as always best. Apply to these wounded hearts the healing touch of Your precious promises, and let them soon experience its power. Teach us not to mourn as those who have no hope. Wipe away the tears from our eyes that we may be able to see through the mist, beyond death and the grave, to the Resurrection and Life assured by the glorious victory of our Savior Jesus Christ over death and the grave. May the passing of Police Officer Emmanuel Familia remind us that we, too, are but pilgrims and strangers on earth. Grant us the grace to love less and less the things that are material and temporal, and to love more and more the things that are spiritual and eternal. Teach us to number our days and to apply our heart to the wisdom taught by Jesus Christ, that He is the Way and the Truth and the Life, and that no one comes to You, O God, but by Him. In the Holy Name of Your Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.

During His three (3) year ministry, the Lord Jesus Christ proclaimed, “The greatest love you can show is to give your life for your friends.” [John 15:13 GW]
