Please take six minutes and watch this video of Amy O'Rourke, a Catholic wife and mom -- the widow of Police Officer Patrick O'Rourke who was killed on Sunday by a gunshot wound. In this heart-wrenching video, Amy speaks of her love for Patrick and how her faith is helping her to face the unthinkable loss of a beloved spouse. Amy's testimonial here is a master class in letting one's faith truly shine. She shares the family's experience of attending Mass together on Sunday and how Patrick so greatly loved the Lord. Please watch this and share it with your friends.
