Scant details in Moscow Jesuit murders.

The circumstances surrounding the recent murder of two Jesuits in Moscow remain a mystery. The various press reports that I've read (all from Europe - the U.S. media has been strikingly silent on the case) suggest a lack of agreement on the timing of the two deaths and other matters. Though I have my doubts about Russian police investigations, I hope that the truth of what happened quickly comes to light. In the meantime, I continue to pray for the repose of the souls of Fathers Otto Messmer and Victor Betancourt, for all who mourn their loss, and for the Jesuits working in Russia. AMDG.
