We remember the day we were engulfed in fear, disbelief and grief. Years have passed, and we continue to mourn all that was lost.
Grant peace Lord to all of those who perished that day.
Grant comfort to the families who lost loved ones.
Grant healing to all who carry scars on the hearts, minds and bodies.
Lord have mercy on us and all of your children. Grant us the grace of knowing the true security of your promise of peace and justice for every nation and all peoples. Let the memories of September 11 inspire our efforts to meet the complexities of this world in a way where we may offer sorrow in service of something greater than ourselves.
-The Columban Fathers
