Extraordinary Act of Holiness

Here is an inspiring story for us all. 76 year old engineering professor at Virginia Tech, Liviu Librescu, made the ultimate sacrifice to save his student’s lives Monday. When the gunman was charging for his classroom, Librescu barricaded the door with his body, allowing his students to escape through the windows. Soon after the last student got out the gunman was able to force his way in and shot Librescu to death.

Liviu Librescu is no stranger to tragedy. He survived the holocaust as a child and later the persecution of Romania’s communist regime. This is truly inspiring and brings home Jesus’ call to all of us to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters (Jn.15:13).

God bless this Jewish brother of ours.

Also, we would do well to pray for the soul of the young man who carried out this heinous shooting. Today one media outlet released a video he had sent them prior to the shooting and it is clear he was a very disturbed individual.
