Requiescat In Pace: Alfie Evans

Alfie Evans has gone to join the Holy Innocents in Eternity.  Prayers for him and his bereaved family.  I will have much commentary on this in the days to come, but this is not the time for it.  Please restrict your comments to wishes for his eternal repose.


Dearest Jesus, who wept at the death of your friend
and taught that they who mourn shall be comforted,
grant us the comfort of your presence in our loss.
Send Your Holy Spirit to direct us
lest we make hasty or foolish decisions.
Send Your Spirit to give us courage
lest through fear we recoil from living.
Send Your Spirit to bring us your peace
lest bitterness, false guilt, or regret take root in our hearts.

The Lord has given.
The Lord has taken away.
Blessed be the name of the Lord.


O sweet mother Mary,
who knew the sadness of mourning those your heart loved most,
Jesus, your Son,
and Joseph, your devoted spouse,

pray for us in our time of loss.



More to explorer


  1. Alfie’s work begins now. The power of Love will be Triumphant.
    Rest in Peace dear comrade in arms…. from the front lines, rosaries in hand, be with us and pray with us as we set up to Defund Planned Parenthood around the country.

  2. Someone posted on Twitter that Allie is a warrior who will be a colonel in St. Michael’s army. I liked that.

  3. A consoling thought for Catholics is that heaven awaits those who die without sin and die for Christ. And as was point out above, Alfie Evans did die for Christ, to make us more aware of that dangerous slippery slope at the top of which is state controlled medicine. And, perhaps we can then be more aware of the legalized murder carried out in the Low Countries, Holland and Belgium, in the name of Mercy Killing, Euthanasia.

  4. Prof. Kurland is spot on in his comments.
    The hospital has an unsavory rep for not releasing infant remains. Probably no chance of an autopsy. Such an examination would provide closure for the parents perhaps.
    Prayers for Alfie’s grieving parents and family.

  5. Rest In Peace beautiful boy. May God give your parents comfort during this time as they will be heartbroken. Pray for us here on Earth, Alfie, and ask God for His strength to fight for goodness here on earth. Your life was short but your mark will be oh so great.

  6. Foxfire, my mother made a comment to me when I told her this story. She said that there must be more to this, and the hospital could possibly be using this boy for their own research which explains why they fought to have him retained in hospital. There is no other exlplaintation why a doctor is able to over-ride the wishes of two loving parents. There is more to this than the hospital is saying…

  7. Rest in peace wee man. You and yours are in my thoughts and prayers. Especially your poor Mum and Dad who love you so much and did everything they could…

    And wee man, we don’t deserve it but please pray for all of us too..

    Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord. And let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

  8. Ezabelle-
    or they screwed something up, royally, and any other doctors getting near the kid would notice. That was involved in the scheduled harvesting for George Pickering III.
