Aurora cinema shooting suspect James Holmes.

This Catholic News Agency story tells something of the aftermath of the Aurora cinema shooting.

Father Terry Kissell, the pastor of Aurora's St. Michael the Archangel Parish, reassured parishioners of the hope they can find in Christ, even in the darkest times. He was mourning the death of one of their own in a July 20 mass shooting.

Parishioner Alex Sullivan, 27, was one of 12 people killed inside a nearby movie theatre very early Friday morning during the midnight premiere of the newest Batman film, "The Dark Knight Rises." The shooter was believed to be 24-year-old James Holmes.

Sullivan was confirmed as an adult last year at St. Michael's. He would have celebrated his first wedding anniversary July 22.
